Sometimes a temporary fix is what just what you need…….. until the new part arrives.


We had a pinball repair come up for a Stern SHREK machine recently that had a bad drop target. We carry all the parts for drop targets….. except for this oddball! When we found the culprit, it ended up being a broken ledge in the drop target channel and we knew right away that this would have to wait until parts arrived. In order to get the customer up and running we employed a temporary fix on the pinball using….. electrical tape. While we try to be prepared for all issue with pinball machines. sometimes we run into things that are not possible to predict. Luckily for those occasions…… there is tape. By the way, this could have been the permanent fix because it worked so well, but we would rather fix things the right way! Haha!
