If you have a pinball machine that is currently not working or you would like to have your machine look and play like new again, contact us today.
We are a father and son team who not only enjoy playing pinball, but who really love getting non-working pinball machines back in service. We have repaired all makes and models from the 1930s to present-day machines and are the go-to experts in the Fox River Valley for EM (pre-1980) pinball repair.
At Father and Son Pinball, we will always give you an honest estimate of what it will take to get your machine up and running. We will also tell you if the repairs would be more than what the machine is worth. We want you to be happy and satisfied.
Pinball machines have literally thousands of parts, maybe as many as your car. Diagnosing problems takes time, expertise, concentration and specialized tools. Our shop is set up for just that. Pinball machines were originally designed to last under five years, because no one made money off of machines that the public was bored with. After 20 to 30 years the machines that are still around can have some challenges. Very often, when one thing is wrong with a machine it can cause other unseen problems that can only be uncovered by completely going through the machine. We have spent hundreds of hours traveling across the country to train/apprentice with retired pinball repairmen/operators and thousands of dollars outfitting our shop.

“Mike and his family have successfully brought our pinball machine out of the ashes! Mike did the work for a fair price, and he and his family have an obvious love of classic machines. The pain staking work they did to bring our 1975 air aces is clear when playing it. I don’t have any expertise in pinball machines whatsoever. When I dropped our machine with mike and his family, it was clear to me that they are fellow pin-nerds. Our machine is now a fixture in our basement bar, and I just can’t wait to share it with our family and friends. I will personally vouch for these guys any day of the week, and expect to bring them another 70’s era machine very soon.
Thank you guys so much!! We’re so pumped!! She’s playing like an all star!”P. Hackett
“Mike and his son restored my 70s Meteor machine and it works like new. They also replaced the old lighting with new LED lights. Wow, does it pop now. My entire family loves playing it. Great to work with and very reasonable pricing!”T. Thiel
“Mike and Nick have been super in helping us acquire a couple new machines and servicing the one we had. They replaced the bulbs on one pinball machine with LED lights at a reasonable price. These guys take a lot of pride in a job well done every time.”M. Westemeier
