About Console5

We are a small family-owned business specializing in the refurbishment of vintage video game consoles, computers, and related electronics.  Many of our unique repair products are the result of our own needs coupled with comprehensive in-house testing. We go beyond "cleaned and tested" with our processes to ensure OEM-like or better performance. We have also worked with our customers to create products based on their needs.

Console5 began as an idea over lunch, shared by several friends at our favorite pub.  We were planning to produce of a series of videos covering retrogaming topics using professional production equipment, and were hashing out a name that was simple, memorable, and appropriate.

"Console five!" blurted Steve.

"It's perfect!" I said.

I've been involved in retrogaming for many years, giving advice on various forums under the handle "FABombjoy".  I've also, from time to time, repaired, refurbished, and sold a range of systems on those same forums and eBay.  I've built my collection by purchasing lots of broken consoles and games, and using my electronics repair training to teach myself how to fix them.  I've spent my whole life being interested in technology, both old and new, and holding on to as many of my original games and game systems as possible.

Console5, LLC was registered with the State of Michigan in February, 2011
