My Arcade
Home My Arcade Favorites Tech Info


I'm a fairly serious collector of coin-operated arcade equipment.  There's probably a better word than "serious" for a person who owns ten pinball machines, but we'll leave that to your imagination ...

My primary interest is mid- to late-nineties pinball machines, but my collection also includes several juke boxes, a few rifle games (shooting galleries), and a HUGE ball bowler machine.  If you're a fellow collector or enthusiast in the area of Nashua NH, I'd love to hear from you.  I've been working on coin-op games for several decades and can assist you with repairs to your games.

Here are some pictures of my basement arcade.  Click on any of the thumbnails below for a larger picture.

Haunted House

the workshop


Some notes about these games:

bulletScared Stiff is an early production model (or sample game); it has many features such as glow-in-the-dark bones that were dropped in a cost-savings measure.  You can see the color-wash applied to the bones at the factory; this step was omitted from the majority of the production games.
bulletHaunted House belongs to my oldest daughter.  This is about the fourth one of these games that I've owned.  I spent some serious time touching up a number of worn areas on the wooden playfields; this surely is a labor of love.
bulletThe ABC Bowling Lanes is over fourteen feet long!  I snagged a NOS backglass off eBay for this game.

As I restore these games I'm having the playfields sprayed with automotive clearcoat (a highly durable plastic finish).  This is similar to the finish that was applied to late-model games at the factory; it serves to preserve the artwork on the wooden playfield from wear.  I send my playfields to Bill Davis for clearcoating; Bill's an absolute wizard at making old playfields look new again!
