Dear Sun Spots: I have a 1984 Williams pinball machine and I’m having trouble finding a person to work on it and fix it. Could you please give me a list of any and all pinball machine repair businesses in the Maine and New Hampshire area that could fix or repair my machine. Thank you very much. – Mark, Sabattus.
