    It has more problems than you think. The frame is really weak, I think i'm going to have to pull it apart and make another, or find a way to sure up this one. Here's some picks and i'm including the ones of me unpacking it so you can see how he packed this, tell me what you think...

    All I see is broken glass. Doesn't look so bad. Admittedly a pretty bad packing job... should have had a sheet of something in front of the glass. When I ship clocks, I always use underlayment wrapped with paper. Put some new glass in it and play it.

    cut 4 wider boards to fit all four sides, them screw them
    into sides, top and bottom,

    cut the top and bottom boards longer, so you can screw them into the new side pieces for extra strength

    predrill the pachinko frame to keep from weakning it more.

    problem solved, paint it and you have a cabinet to boot.

    wthford, guess you didn't check out the pic of the back, and like I said the frame is weak, just about falling apart so it's not as simple as throwing glass in it and playing.

    the brackets would solve your problem.. i would have to agree put in some glass and your good to go.. but all we can do is see it, your the one that can see it an feel it..

    take the machine out of the case.. undo all the original corner brackets then see if u can pop the corners and get some good glue in there then reasemble.. if u think u need it u could add the corner brackets

    good luck to ya

    I used wood joint glue with one of my machines that had a wobbly frame. It's rock solid now.
    Its never too late to have a happy childhood.
