Yes! The Skillshot FX team takes great pride in declaring that their products are 'Made in the USA'.
Specifically, the Skillshot FX is built in the American town of Pulaski, Wisconsin, which also just happens to be just a stone's throw from Green Bay, which is a place associated with the renowned Green Bay Packers.
Every Skillshot FX unit is crafted by hand with meticulous attention to detail, matching the superior quality standards of their commercial arcade counterparts.
As the Skillshot FX team at Skee-Ball often says, "each unit is a product of heartland craftsmanship and arcade love, right from Pulaski!"
When it comes to maintaining the pristine condition of your Skillshot FX, here's what the team at Skee-Ball recommends:
For the Plastic Parts & Display Panel: Opt for a gentle, foaming glass cleaner and a soft microfiber towel for wiping down these parts. Remember, the Skillshot FX acrylic plastic sheets do boast 17 times the impact strength of glass - but that doesn't mean they are immune to scratches.
While they can withstand significant force, you'll want to exercise care while cleaning, particularly to safeguard the clear protective covering over the Skillshot FX playfield display.
Refrain from placing drinking glasses, mugs, tumblers or any other hard objects on the unit that might scratch the surface.
For the Wood Surfaces: A quality furniture polish and a soft microfiber towel should do the trick. Before applying the polish all over, give it a test run on a less visible area. If it doesn't react with the painted or wood surfaces, feel free to use it on the rest of the woodwork.
The smooth base platform of the Skillshot FX game cabinet facilitates easy movement; remember that the fully assembled unit has a total weight of 270 lbs.
