Rotisserie for Black Hole Pinball

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

My black hole pinball machine worked and was in decent shape, but I had driven a long way to get it (HERE), my kids loved it, and it wasn’t leaving the collection anytime soon. Black Hole is a great game and worthy of a little extra TLC, so the damaged cabinet would get restored and possibly a re-stencil.

Of course I’d have to strip the playfields first, and that was a nightmare, but I’ll save the story of that agony for another time.
