    Default Restoring Wife's Childhood Pachinko Machine

    Hello Pachi Experts!

    Just wanted to thank you guys for all the helpful posts in this forum. We recently found my wife's old Pachinko Machine at her Mom and Dad's house. It was stashed in a closet for many years, but was amazingly in pretty good shape (even though she had 13 siblings ).

    Thanks to all the helpful info on this forum, I got it back up and running and we're having a blast with it! It's a Sankyo, Model B (I think?), and has a cool 'cat' in the middle with a spinner at the top that you can sometimes get into...

    Now, the only problem is I'm afraid I'm hooked on these things ;-).

    Welcome to PachiTalk!!

    I think it's wonderful that you are restoring a pachinko which has family history and are having fun with it
