Meet Ryan McNamara, located in Burbank, Illinois working under Midnight Arcade Repair & Service who has been repairing and tech-ing for 15 years now.

Q: How did you first get into the hobby? Did you jump right into repairing machines or did you learn under someone else?

Not one to mince words, Ryan said:

“Worked for an old family friend and learned from others. “

Q: Some techs have a particular aspect they really enjoy working on or they have a specialized set of skills (ie: boards, EMs, new Sterns, restoring cabinet art, etc) — do you specialize in something? or what’s your favorite aspect to work on?

“I work on Electro-Mechanical pinball machines and Solid State pinball machines. I do board repair that ranges from the mpu, driver board, light board, power supply board and more.”

Q: What are you working on now and in the past, What has been your favorite project/game that you worked on?

“Current works in progress is: 1964 Monte Carlo (single player), Bally Wizard and a TMNT.

Q: What is the best way to contact you and what areas do you service? Do you also operate your own route? If so, would you like to shout out those locations?
