THE source for Arcade Repair
Seriously, their name says it all. Arcade Repair Tips are what you'll get, but there's much more. Discussions on what's new in the coin-op industry, humorous observations on the struggles you can expect to encounter trying to repair arcade machines, and repair advice geared towards a beginners understanding. The Arcade Repair Tips crew literally taught me from a newbie that had never seen the inside of an arcade cabinet to a pretty successful arcade restorer all through their videos & podcasts. I can't thank them enough, and if you really want to learn how to fix that broken arcade machine you picked up to bring back some nostalgia from your youth you've come to the right place.

Well produced, pratical & thorough podcast
What I appreciate most about this podcast & their accompanying website is the thoroughness of the answers they provide to the questions posed. Not only will they answer the primary question, but then they'll go beyond that to answer all the What If related questions that'll pop up with such detailed answers.
The hosts, Tim & Jonathan, are helpful, humble and funny, which makes the podcast shine. After the catchy theme song, the format is: intro, Q&A, open discussion and closing w/ announcements of upcoming shows & auctions. From time to time, you'll be able to catch special live, on-location broadcasts from a Pinball convention they're attending. These shows usually have a live audience and special guests.
In addition to a solid, well produced podcast, Arcade Repair tips also have an accompanying website with a handy Q&A database, links to all the podcasts, a storefront and recommend arcade vendors. As if that wasn't enough, they have a handy YouTube channel with videos that step viewers through common repairs & problems. While those are great, I personally enjoy the seminar videos posted from various Pinball / Arcade conventions they attend. Always enlightening to hear from industry insiders.
I understand this is a niche podcast, but its a crime it doesn't have a larger audience. That's why I'm leaving this review. The Arcade Repair Tips team is a real asset to the arcade community. I encourage you to take a listen yourself and prove me wrong! :-) -RetroAmigo!
