My Freefall Restoration Pictures!

Postby Craig » Sat Jul 07, 2018 11:28 am

Everyone likes pinball restoration pictures right?

I fell in love with Sparky's Freefall at the 2017 Pincon, a few months later I was extremely fortunate to find one locally, (thanks Jason).

Today I share some pictures from its restoration being done by my new friend Tom in Cleveland. I bought my Catacomb from him in 2017, we became friends and he agreed to take on my Freefall.

I dropped the game off in March when I was at the Ohio Pinball Show and will pick up the finished job in September during the Cleveland Pinball and Arcade Show.

He has won awards for his work, he only takes on 2-3 games a year, again feeling very fortunate he agreed to take on my pin!

Will be hosting this fall to share finished work with all.

Craig
