Here is another 2-stage restoration, which covers rebuilding the board sets, along with a full playfield teardown, touchup, clearcoat, and rebuild.

Other than a good cleaning the cabinet will not be worked on.

This is a Barry Oursler  design, and shipped with the wonky Banana Flippers.

This playfield will need some mylar removed, followed but a through cleaning,  a few minor touchups, then clear coated, so it never degrades any further.

It will need some board work, and I have already changed the dreaded 40-pin CPU/Driver interconnect.

Solenoid assemblies have been removed for rebuild, and cleaning.

All playfield metal is now in the tumblers.

Playfield rails are a plain wood look, might paint them white.

Thinking of changing the flipper assemblies out to the newer all on one main base style, as there seems to be room, providing I move some lamp sockets, and the tilt switch.

Doing so would provide much better game play, and increase flipper reliability, so stay tuned!

Hi Devron, I picked up the Buckaroo yesterday at the airport and got it put together this evening. It made it through the trip in great shape, thanks to your great crating job! Nothing was able to shift or get loose and you did a fantastic packing job! The machine looks and plays great! The new backglass arrived last week so I have to put it in to make it look even better. I'm real happy with the machine, and thank you for your very accurate description. Thanks, again, for everything and maybe we'll have the chance to do business again in the future.
If you want to buy a pinball machine without the fear of inheriting someone else's problem – buy from Devron. He is meticulous in his restoration of machines and will never let anything go out the door unless it is 100%. I have seen the results of his work on many occasions and I am always amazed at the quality, and attention to detail. Many people and businesses claim that they have "shopped" their machines, but with Devron it’s the absolute truth. He goes through machines top to bottom, inside and out. I have plans to buy a couple more machines over the next few years, and I guarantee they will be from Devron. I just know that it will be done right.
I have been completely impressed with the professionalism, knowledge, and honest dedication to customer support that Devron Gibbon of Absolute Pinball has shown me.  His enthusiasm and respect for the art of pinball is readily evident in the quality and thoroughness of his restoration work.  Devron's willingness to answer questions and to assist a 'new to me' pinball machine has been remarkable - he honestly cares about his customers.

Thank you...thank you...thank you for the Galaxy pinball machine!!!! A couple of friends of mine set it up this past weekend and it's fantastic!!! Whoever packed it for shipment did an outstanding job!! We are having the best time playing it. In fact the first night it was set up, I couldn't sleep so I went downstairs at 2:00am and played a bunch of games.
I contacted Devron to service and repair my 1977 STARS pinball machine, Devron was easy to contact and was waiting when I arrived. He is very knowledgeable and completed all the repairs he was asked to. Devron contacted me prior to making any extra repairs we didn't originally agree on, until he started to work on the machine and determine what was needed. The machine has been used every week since the last year and works excellent. Devron has a true passion for his work and I found the rates reasonable.
