Pinball Machine Help
« on: November 24, 2003, 01:48:48 am »
You guys are great for arcade related stuff but i now have an antique pinball to restore.  I need to find a good pinball repair forum with people as helpful as you all.  Anybody know of such a place?  Specifically i need help finding the schematic sheets for a 1968 Williams "Cabaret" pinball machine.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Matthew

www.google.com

Click on groups.

Find the rec.games.pinball newsgroup,

Post your question there.

You could also try the pinball forum at www.startechjournal.com

The best source of parts and schematics is:

Steve Young's "The Pinball Resource"
8 Commerce St.
Poughkeepsie, N.Y. 12603
Phone: (845) 473-7114
Fax: 845-473-7116
URL: www.pbresource.com

He has tons of NOS and reproduction parts for just about every pinball made. He's a one man show and I think he's on vacation this week till Monday Dec. 1st.

Definitely he would have the schematic and manuals for your machine. I got manuals and schematics for a Williams "Expo" (same vintage as your machine) from him.
