With their keep it simple approach and positive attitude, Arcade Repair Tips gives even the most confused beginner the skills and the confidence they need to do their own repairs.

Joe Crookham - My collection like many, started off with non-working cabinets that needed quite a bit of work. With the help of another member of the arcade community I was turned onto constructing new cabinets. This was really a perfect fit for me. I was able to combine my new love of arcade machines with years of woodworking experience. I reproduce classic arcade cabinets with the use of a high precision CNC router. My production list includes 30 unique cabinets and is continually growing.
John Costa and show his wife Michelle, son Michael, and daughter Michaela has been participated in the arcade show for 7 years. They have been serious collectors of coin-operated machines for over 15 years, with a collection to date of about 180 pieces. Using his electrical knowledge he repaired games out of necessity to keep his own collection in top shape. Eventually, he branched out to the public to help them to maintain their games. He has worked on everything from table top pinball machines, to WPC pinball machines, to early 1930s/1940s jukeboxes.

I will be discussing how to restore water damaged cabinets from the trash heap by using common products found in your local hardware store! Multimorphic- The P3 is a pinball platform. It supports hundreds of completely different game apps, each providing a unique gaming experience and offering something for everybody, kids and adults alike! Many of these games will be written by us. Others can be written by you! When combined with different upper playfield shot layouts, the possibilities are truly endless. Our first suite of games will take you to imaginery worlds you've never seen before and through interactions you never dreamed were possible. Unknown adventures lie ahead! Journey through outer space, encountering new worlds, making new friends, and battling new enemies. Each world presents new challenges, scenery, and interactions, as does the seemingly empty space around it.
