For my 1936 Gottlieb College Football, as seen on IPDB. I need 1 or more of these pf posts/lane dividers/springs.....or something similar.
Old pot metal just crumbles. Has anything like this been used on bingo playfields? Seek advise on molding out of epoxy?...or 3D printing out of plastic.
Would like to speak to anyone with a mid to late 30s Gottlieb game.
Bob, in Vermont

Have you called Steve at Pinball Resource?

The base seems like a good candidate for casting. There are lots of good videos online. 3D printing would require an accurate 3D model and likely lots of sanding once printed unless you have access to one of the higher resolution printers.

Springs would be a little harder to reproduce. Adapting a more common spring would probably be a better bet.

You could JB Weld that broken post back onto the triangular part. A better solution is to may be to carefully drill into the triangular piece, where the post was, and tap the hole, install a small stud. Then thread the spring onto the end of the stud. Only you will know it has been altered.

Another option is to just drill the triangular part, install a stud by epoxying it in place.

very cool payout game.
Ive added it to the pinside database

I think i would just try to JB Weld first and see how it holds.
