Paragon Pinball
« on: May 14, 2020, 10:55:25 AM »
My Paragon pinball machine is finally back in peak working order.  It is 41 years old and is in the best condition of any that I've played in the last 20 years.  All three of the motherboards which fail - failed.  I finally found a local guy who could fix the thing.  He loves pinball and this is his "fun time" to fix these.  He does at home lawnmower repair for a living.

It was out of order for more than 3 years - which was very frustrating.  Owing an old pinball machine is like owning a very temperamental foreign sports car.

It has some of the best field and back-glass art that I've ever seen on a pinball machine design.
