Here are some of my favorite pinball links:

If you would like your site listed here, send me an e-mail.

 

 

On the left is an image of my electrical meter. It is an absolutely indispensable tool if you are going to repair your pinball machines. Before I started this hobby, this meter was just a fancy battery checker for me. I have learned to use it properly over the last 10 years. As you can see, it has seen better days. I have dropped it a few times and the glass is cracked and taped on with electrical tape. Also, one of the ends of the plugs has broken off and I have had to tape on a cheater wire with an alligator clip. Yeah, I should upgrade and I can afford it, but you have to understand that this is a special meter: Dave’s Dad gave this to me so it has sentimental value. Maybe he will get me a new one someday. I suppose there is a small chance he might stumble onto this page and feel sorry for me. Maybe then . . . .

Don't forget to visit my Paperwork page if you are looking for manuals or schematics. I have an excellent collection and I am always happy to sell or trade.
