Since 2001 we have been helping people all over the world enjoy vintage pachinko machines with our information, products and services.
It all began when we bought a pachinko machine at a garage sale and restored it for our family game room. Then we met a guy selling 20 machines he used in his traveling carnival. We bought them all; some to keep and some to sell.
We created our own video instruction manual showing how to set up, operate and troubleshoot a pachinko machine. Based on its popularity we began selling pachinko balls, restoration manuals and many other pachinko products.
In 2015 we came to an agreement with Pachinko Restorations to buy Vintage Pachinko. Vintage Pachinko will no longer Repair or Restore pachinko machines, instead Vintage Pachinko will be selling restored and project pachinko machines.
Background on Pachinko Restorations: My first pachinko machine was a Sankyo I purchased from Pachinko Palace in 1978. I loved to play it so much that I took it apart to see how it worked. I knew then that I had the talent to work on them because when I put it back together everything worked. I got my second pachinko, a Nishijin, at a second hand store as part of a deal on a used washing machine in 1992. I started to see what was happening to the old machines that were often stored in barns, attics and garages collecting dust and falling apart due to disrepair. I started Pachinko Restorations in 2009 to help people get their machines back up and working again.
