  • Thanks for all your comments, it's very motivating 👏 PS : The game is sold, thanks to Caitlyn.

    • These pinball games were derived from the earlier Bagatelle boards that used a pool cue to send a ball past pins or pegs scoring points by having the ball land in slots or holes worth varying values.

    • What is the purpose of this game that I did not understand? Can anyone teach me about it?

    • GG. Video is cool But what is the right free place

    • Matthew 6:19-21 NKJV "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; [20] but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. [21] For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

    • hey OTND, i have an official name for this

  • I thought "Great job on spinning the brass, that's not easy". Then you showed a week's worth of failures and I had to laugh. Overall A+

    • Seria melhor fazer um novo kkk

    • Not failures, learnings or lessons.

    • @Old Things Never Die True but this is 1930's stuff. When things were made out of wood and metal, brass, glass, real stuff. Plastic was very rare. Those cute little brass bells. It looks amazing. Even the radios were made out of wooden cabinetry. I love old things. Edit: Oh damn. When I wrote that I didn't even notice the name of your channel. Lol.

    • @Old Things Never Die On aurait dit des cymbales de batterie : D

  • Amazing work! Until this video, I didn't even consider why it was called "pin-ball"! Learned so much, thanks!

    • It's a Bagatelle

    • @marsupialdungbucket Yep I immediately thought "oh it's a bagatelle!" when the video started. Not sure I've ever seen one with the option to 'launch' the ball using a cue.

    • @Raymond Ashby Yes, it's definitely bagatelle. I had one as a kid 60 years ago (it had been my grandfather's), though the pins were much thinner and headless. It still sounded very much like this one, though.

    • @ARC the Cartoon Master yeah look it up sometime, mayor of New York went batshit and had the police confiscate every game they could find. Smashed and bunch up and dumped the rest into the Hudson.

    • @linkfan95 Damn, that is insane.

  • The process for making the bells is called spinning, the same as the one used for lamp shades and it very delicate but spot on. It took your project to a whole new level. Great job

    • Yep, spinning is a good trick, as Anakin once said in The Phantom Menace 😄

    • I remember trying to turn a mini bell on my drill press using a standard chisel, hard to get the bottom right but it sortof resembelled a bell lol

  • Uma restauração de excelência. Parabéns pelo trabalho!!

  • You brought this back to life! I'm so amazed at all of your skills! Beautiful pinball restoration! You got yourself a new subscriber! ♥

  • I so enjoyed watching this and am impressed by your obvious skills - plus I’m really envious of all the cool stuff in your workshop! Such a simple, humble little piece but requiring so much patient work to bring it back to life. May the old things never die.

  • One of my favorite restorations on ID-tv. I love old school vintage stuff like this. Such a master craftsman bro, seeing your arsenal of tools and equipment and how skilled you are is so impressive. Amazing content

  • very cool, my great grand father sold these to bars back in his day amongst many business he had. we still have a very, very similar version in the basement. always thought about restoring it and this gives even more motivation.

    • @FREE - PEACE What determines whether or not something is worth preserving? Clearly everyone who liked the video agrees this exact plaything was worth it. Besides this person has a family history associated with the item, that's worth more than money.

    • The idea of any Restoration or renewing is good but only on something that much useful or necessary like Traces of Civilizations , fossils , jewels , gold , silvers , important books , important papers documents , documents videos documents , important reports , important records...... and so on just to avoid wasting time and loosing money

  • I was certain at the beginning of this that you would end up just using the original as a model and build something from scratch. Or at least use all new hardware. I am so beyond impressed at how much you were able to salvage. Definitely earned a like and subscribe from me!

  • I follow a ton of Restoration channels, so eventually I had to get here and this is BY FAR, one of the most amazing ones, the amount of work and love you put into the work is just astonishing, pretty sure you will get to a million subs in no time, good luck with your future videos! I will be watching them with joy!

  • ¡Emocionante vídeo! ¡Gracias por mostrarnos tu trabajo y por las sugerencias adicionales que compartes en el vídeo! Aunque no es el caso, no temas que sean muy básicas, pues siempre son importantes; aunque algunos las conozcan, a otros nos servirán. ¡Saludos desde España, Internet es una hermosa herramienta!

  • Wow, this is a phenomenal restoration. This is the kind of thing I love to see restored; pieces with real historical value that simply aren't made anymore.

  • Wow, this was one of the most challenging restorations I have watched. Great job!

  • That was incredible work! I'm blown away by the range of skills employed and the utterly superb outcome! Top, top top quality restoration. I've been subscribed from when you started this channel and with work like that 100k subs will arrive pretty soon! 🧡 P.S. Your workshop is tidier than my bedroom 😁

    • Thank you Deena, you are still there to leave a great comment. 👍😉

  • I thought you were done when the top was done. I was surprised to see you laminating blocks and create the legs. I thought it was just a simple wire leg ... Even your woodworking skills are amazing!

    • My thought was that this was a tabletop "home" unit of sorts for rich folks, and it was going to have simple wooden feet with wire legs. count me surprised when he started gluing together massive blocks

  • This is why I love this channel, so much of the original is still there! Most channels I watch would have thrown away most of the metal work and used new ones, but saving all of it here was just brilliant.

  • Excelente trabalho muito bom 👍 👍 👍 👍

  • I love when restorers go above and beyond to bring something back to it's original look. This is an amazing restoration

  • 8:52 Deep fried nails anyone? 😂 17:44 We need to keep showing more of our failures along the way like this. So many times I've talked to people who have enjoyed my restorations but said they could never do it themselves because they weren't an 'expert' like I was. I'll always be the first to say I'm nowhere even close to being an expert and I could put together a video of equal length to the final product showing all the failures along the way to finally getting things right. There is nothing wrong with failing; it is how we learn. 🙂 You are a fantastic example of quality over quantity with your restorations. Keep doing you! Cheers, CR

    • Expert just means that you've failed a thousand times and still kept trying

    • Indeed! I am a student in conservation and restoration of cultural heritage, and even though we are supposed to be "the experts" it still is a process! Gotta know how to listen to the piece to restore and choose the healthiest route possible for it!

  • Incrível, muito satisfatório

  • Parabéns pelo talento! Seu trabalho é primoroso!

  • you're positively insane for polishing and Nickle-plating every single one of those nails, my guy. This is incredible.

  • Beautiful restoration stunning love the way you repaired all the original parts the attention to detail wow

  • This reminds me of the time I went to a pinball arcade and in the back I played a pinball machine from the 1950’s. There was no sound or anything fancy besides a couple bells and buzzers, but it was so cool to see the old technology! Awesome job restoring this old gem! 👍

    • Pinball was originally more of a gambling or luck sort of game

    • @Matthew Rees I was honestly thinking the same, a couple wooden flippers with a spring mechanism would be sick.

    • I feel like this mini portable game would be 1 million times better if you could send ball back up

  • Muito bom. Excelente trabalho.

  • You do some kick ass restorative work! Very detail oriented. 👏🏻

  • Wow, what an amazing job! I'm impressed with your determination to get those brass bells the right shape. The end result is amazing: the game looks stunning!❤️

  • Such a thing of beauty! Watching the process of restoration brings me joy.

  • Simply superb. Each time I thought 'ok, he's not going to remake that bit though', you went and remade the bit. Fantastic. And a real, real mastery of the craft and all its aspects.

  • BEAUTIFUL WORK!! I am amazed at all the knowledge and skill to restore wonderful pieces from the past! What a gift! Keep up the phenomenal work! 🙏🦅🇺🇸♥️ SUBSCRIBED!! 🔔

  • I am always amazed at the skill,patience,and dedication that people have for restoring items.

  • Très reposant, très relaxant et très satisfaisant 😊 et beau boulot de montage

  • Muito bom, show de bola ⚽️👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👊👊🇧🇷🇧🇷

  • That is some incredible work! Masterfully done!

  • This is the first time seen one of your videos and I was utterly transfixed the entire time! I can't believe that was all the same hardware it looks so amazing!

  • This is amazing! You do really great work. My only suggestion would have been to add a washer on either side of the plunger spring so the spring doesn't dig into the wood

    • I'd probably also add a rubber or felt piece between the handle and the body of the machine so when the plunger goes springing forward it deadens the blow.

  • REALLY cool techniques used in this vid. The way the brass bells were made was amazing, and that table-saw lathe solution was awesome.

  • I just found this channel through youtube recommendations! While youtube recommends me some weird stuff, this is one video I'm very impressed by! Not only is the video unique in that it has no commentary, but it's also very entertaining and interesting to see the different techniques used! You've earned a new subscriber!

  • What a wonderful job. I love those restauration videos. So much love youve put in your work. Well done.

  • Caramba achei que ninguem nunca tinha feito isso alem do meu primo, a 25 anos atras meu primo criou um desses e olha que é bem parecido inacreditavel, muito bom.

  • That is an awesome resto job. My father made one of those 40 years ago for my brother and myself, brings back good memories.

  • This is one of the finest restorations I have ever seen on ID-tv. You were so respectful of the original piece and your level of craftsmanship is outstanding! I need to know… how old are you and what do you do professionally?? You look (from what we can see 😂) so young! Fantastic job!!

  • Você é muito bom 👏👏👏

  • Turned out absolutely beautiful! A lot of restoration videos I have some criticisms about but you did an amazing job on everything. No unnecessary replacements of perfectly good original parts or half effort jobs. You turned an old forgotten thing into a beautiful man cave conversation piece. Well done!

    • @ReniPlayz@Stevean2 In no way was my comment meant to condemn other channels or portray the idea that my opinion is the only one that matters. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I was simply complimenting Old Things Never Die on his exceptional restoration of this piece compared to other channels I've seen which put minimal effort into their restorations. I'm sure there are reasons for this such as lack of funds for proper materials/tools, lack of experience, just simply fishing for views, etc. I have done restoration work myself simply as a hobby which by no means makes me a pro; I just know a job well done when I see one. I hope this clears up any skewed interpretations since, as ReniPlayz stated it can be difficult to know the tone or intention of a typed message.

    • @Stevean2 Alright, so there are three options. Either Bradinator is experienced, but that’s not his career, that IS his career, or you are right. The reason that he doesn’t respond is because either he doesn’t check back at his comments, doesn’t check back unless he gets pinged (try pinging him right now.), or he maybe IS scared. Ping him and ask him. Plus, he IS complimenting Old Things Never Die, and may have constructive criticism based on experience, possibly from observing other people, most likely on ID-tv, or from as a hobby or job.

    • @ReniPlayz highly doubt it. they're probably some overly egotistical self important 40 year old or older who thinks their view is more value than anyone elses with nothing to back it up. the fact they refuse to respond to eleborate only proves my point, they're scared.

    • @Stevean2 Plus, again, what if bradinator is a 'pro" himself?

  • So cool. Great to see an earlier version of this. It looks better than before. Classy.

  • How long did it take you to do this? great job btw! I'm SO Enjoying watching you take something that looks completely GONE.... just to see you bring it back to life! Amazing!

  • This was one of the best restoration i've ever seen so far in YT really really impressed by how you make everything like an original looks 🤯🤯👏👏👏👍

  • Wow, just wow! This is really very well done and the time flew by. I enjoyed the video very much! 💪 Shaping the bells certainly took a lot of time, nerves and effort, but the result is perfect! 👍👍👍 Top! Keep up the good work... Greeting 🐢

  • How absolutely amazing! That was some serious work you put in - and I cannot help but wonder about the vintage and age of it!

  • Thanks for informing us how long it took you to make the bells. I'm very interested in finding more about how long these projects take you.

  • Man so good to see you work. You make it look easy when I now it's a very hard work. So, thank you so much to bring this amazing video for us. I wish all the best for you and your channel. 🙏❤🇧🇷

  • Great job on the restoration, you might want to add a stop to the plunger so the knob isn't hitting the case. Over time that hitting will destroy the case & the knob. A bumper would also be an option to protect everything.

  • Wow, you do beautiful work. The absence of words and the machinery sounds, so great!!

  • I love how you restore as many of the original parts as possible in these projects instead of just replacing them essentially creating a completely different thing

  • You did a fantastic job of restoring his vintage game, absolutely beautiful. Thank you.

  • Reminds me of the Pachinco game from the 50s that I tried to repair. I had no luck, wound up selling it after a lot of time put into it. Really incredible to see how much mechanical work went into making it. Artists and craftsman made them

  • Just discovered your channel randomly. What an amazing work!! Thank you for sharing it (the flaws/tries aswell, makes it more human)!

  • Phenomenal work, the blue lathe with the guide was awesome, I always wondered how they match the other legs. Well done buddy. Was kinda hoping you changed the nails to pins without the nail heads. But so very cool nonetheless. Great attention to detail.

  • Truly impressed with your work here. Can't believe you even made new bells from scratch.

  • Me encantó su trabajo de restauración. Hermoso, saludos desde CHILE, bendiciones.

  • Your Restoration of The 30's Pinball is Excellent. Thanks for your channel, I'm a New Subscriber. Can't wait to watch some of your other restores.

  • Love the game. Never thought it had legs. Since the beginning, I thought it was a game to be played on the table. The original photo (with the legs) took me by surprise and I really like this video. This guy made a brilliant and superb work. This is absolutely amazing.

  • Amazing work! The techniques you used to make the legs were really interesting.

  • Love the brass hoops. Didn't realize they were brass till you cleaned them up. I appreciated seeing the trouble you had making the brass cups. Most refinishers will not show the trouble areas. You were being honest about the progress

  • Beautiful!! Thank you for sharing an excellent piece of work 👏👏👏

  • Un trabajo realmente hermoso!

  • Such great work and so awesome to recover old things.

  • You replaced far less than I would have expected. A _true_ restoration. 👌

  • That is nothing short of impressive. Your patience and skills are incredible. Thanks for sharing.

  • Excelente trabajo!! Felicitaciones!!

  • You can really see the common heritage that pinball and pachinko have with this ancestral machine.

  • 19:18 WHOA!! Sick transition that was smooooth. ;3 Fantastic work with the restoration it looks amazing!!! I love playing pinball even though I'm god awful at it regardless of the version. :P

  • Sir, your working technique is amazing and providing very good knowledge to the viewers.

  • All of your restorations are fascinating to watch. What originally got you into restoration and how long did it take you to assemble the specialty equipment that you have?

  • What a great restoration! 😱 Impressive work on that game 👌

  • I really enjoyed that! Best one I've watched in ages. It looks fantastic! My only small irk was I wish the wood on the actual game was a bit more glossy, like the knob and legs you made. It still looks fantastic, but to hat would be my CV personal in preference. Outstanding!

  • So many techniques, so many skills. beautiful project!

  • Soooo beautiful. Excellent work, thank you for sharing that.

  • Absolutely great restoration. A lot of work for an old toy ! Thanks for showing

  • És um grande artista parabéns pelo seu trabalho obrigado pelo seu vídeo

  • Felicidades 👏 pones mucho empeño y amor en lo que haces.

  • Thoroughly impressed. Fantastic job 😊

  • Just amazing! So many skills needed to achieve these great results!

  • You took a piece that could have been easily discarded and turned it into a treasure. So impressed. Thanks for sharing 👍🏻

  • I've never watched very many videos like this, but I enjoyed this one, partly because the no-dialogue, visual storytelling gave it a unique and calming feel. And I realized, most restoration videos have *way* too much useless chatter in them.

  • The fact you showed your failures makes me realize you are but a man going after a dream. Gives me hope. ❤️ great job on the restoration. 🙌🏼

  • I love watching carpentry ID-tv videos and the technique at 27:18 is something I hadn't seen before! Neat idea, kinda like a DIY lathe.

  • That was an epic job 👍 turned out brilliantly. Loved the new bells, your other attempts looked like drum kit cymbals. Fantastic restoration 👏👏👏

  • Great job, algorithm. Right up my alley. Also, naturally, amazing work on this restoration. Absolute beauty.

  • This was immensely satisfying! Well done, mate! And thanks for posting!

  • Just fantastic work love how you remade the legs for it and the bell failures was a nice touch, not easy spinning metal.

  • loving how you are doing on the details - great execution!

  • хочу сказать, что это мой любимый канал о реставрации. а я подписан почти на все +/- известные. у вас самая отточенная работа, просто идеальная съёмка. да и просто вещи очень интересные, необычные зачастую. спасибо за ваш труд. жаль, что просмотров тут меньше, чем у тех, кто трудится над видео явно меньше...

  • Fantastic! Looks absolutely amazing!

  • This is quite possibly the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. Nice job!

  • Huge respect for knowing how to work with both wood and metal. Many channels focus only on one of them.

  • Incredible work! I learned a ton just from watching!

  • You did a great job. Love watching these kind of videos

  • The amount of work you put into this stuff is absolutely amazing the stuff you create is so beautiful you're handicraft and artwork I've done artwork I just I can't come up with the words just wow man just bro !
