Noisey 630 board and striping painted figures


Recommended Posts

Yes, noisy game board is more than likely a loose motor or just on a hardtop surface and needs a towel or some other type of padding underneath it. 

I used to use brake fluid, back in the day, to strip paint but then a lot of people now, say use LA Awesome from the Dollar Store. Personally, I do not strip paint any longer, I just spray paint over them with white primer. Kyron or Rustoleum.

If the screw is too close to the motor, it can get very buzzy.

The motor is riveted to the field.  If the rivets have worked loose over time (i.e., there's a gap between the tabs for the motor and the field where the rivets are), you could drill them out and put new rivets in their place.  Machine screws might work, but be sure to use a loc nut or serrated lock washer underneath.

Personally, I'd go with rivets.  Many a 60ish year old board out there now with a perfectly fine factory-riveted motor.

Yes, I have a lot of old game boards that i am just now getting to and to work on, fixing switches, banging out dents, removing rust and redoing the graphics on with vinyl adhesive backed field covers and framing graphics.
