Seems legit.

Nah, this board doesn't look sketchy AF. Not at all.

    I think I found the schematic.

    Many of the boards for coin-op games looked like that even new from that era. I fixed a handful of games in the shop by simply reflowing all of the low-quality solder joints.

    No, I mean it probably gets really hot.

    Looks like the PC board on a device I had repaired three times. Since it was a safety accessory I finally replaced it cuz I didn’t want to be stuck with a broken device in the time of need.

  6. Looks like a power supply.

    You should see the CPU board in early Stern pinball machines - real trippy.

      Backside of the P314 deflection board in a Wells-Gardner 6100. Looks like there have been a lot of hands in here over the years. Thick-fingered hands.

      People say I'm hard to shop for, but for the record, I can give a good home to an extra WG-6100 or two. These things are unobtainium now.

    Here's one I found in a Galaga recently. The substrate there is a business card. Well, half of one. It's a 5V voltage regulator!

    Please don’t tell me this means Tempest is a paperweight again.

    At least they used a hand-drawn PCB. The prior choice would have been point to point soldering
