I'd give it 5 stars but it's missing a very important chapter for us novices - how does the thing work, and once you've rebuilt it, how do you know it's working properly? Also, how do you adjust it? Fortunately I found Dan Reed's excellent website, [...], that answers those questions and includes a couple of videos. As for Mr. King's book, it's great if you are going to do a total restoration - tear it down to zero and make it look like a "new" vintage machine when you're done. The photos embedded in the book are excellent and saved me from having to take a lot of my own photos. But before starting a project like this, you need to be clear on what your objective is. Do you want to sell it for $300? If so, follow the book in detail. In my case, I wanted something my grandkids could have fun with, so I was able to bypass a lot of steps required to really clean and polish the machine. Grandkids don't care if it sparkles, it just needs to work!
I had a Pachinko Machine as a kid and played the heck out of it. So naturally, part of my mid life crisis was to buy a pachinko machine and clean it up.After meeting a bunch of crazies on www.pachitalk.com, I actually got the hair brained idea of replacing the playing field to get rid of the old yellow stained one that came with the machine. I mean, cleaning up is one thing, but taking the thing completely apart?!!!???!!!!MADNESS!!!!This book was the sanity that was needed. Fully illustrated, great tips, Easy to follow.This book is based on a Nishijin Model "B" Vintage Pachinko machine which is the most commonly imported Vintage Pachinko machine available.If you have another make or model machine, there can be quite big difference in the actual parts on the back of the machine, but the basic mechanics are similar so this book is helpful even if you don't have a Nishijin Model "B".The best part of this book covers playfield replacement. This is almost universal across all machines, and is by far the "trickiest" part of a restoration. So where it is REALLY needed, this book delivers regardless of what model you have.This book will never be a best seller. Pachinko Machine restoration is a very niche market. But, if you do have an old Pachinko Machine laying around and you want a 40 to 50 hour project, then this book is indispensable.If your interested in Pachinko, come visit the crazies at www.pachitalk.com. We'll introduce you to our hobby.
If you are thinking of restoring a vintage pachinko machine, you need to read this book before you do anything else!Mr. King provides several techniques that will be invaluable in the disassembly and restoration of these machines!I decided after reading this book not to proceed with further restoration of my machine. I think that I can live with my dingy playfield for at least a little while longer. I knew replacing it would be a lot of work, but I had no idea the scope of the project! I will probably use his tips for refinishing spinners though!
I have 3 machines and decided to start with my Nishijin since it was nearly identical to the one in the book. This book was extremely helpful in providing tips and also warnings of things that can go wrong. I read it on my kindle fire and didn't have any of the issues that other reviewers had with formatting. Also I thought the photos were fine. I'm about 75% done with my restoration and it's given me the confidence to start pulling my other machines apart.
This is the only restoration manual of it's kind that I could find. It's always available on Kindle and I don't have to worry about losing it.
This is the perfect book to help fix your vintage machines, it is a quick reference guide too. Thank you for writing it.
There simply is not a to properly restore a pachinko machine with out this book! Just an incredible resource available.
