Anyone have any recommendations on how to repair this ramp on Judge Dredd? It plays fine, but it would be nice to attach this properly without dropping 160 on a new ramp.

How about epoxying a PETG/nylon washer to the ramp and then screwing it down with the bolt after it cures?

I've also used plastic washers: cut part of the side off so it's flat and the holes line up.

After fixing it, put something soft to absorb vibration between the ramp and bracket and don't screw down too tight. Probably a small pinball ring will work. Otherwise it will likely break again. I had the same problem, but after inserting some foam rubber, it no longer breaks.

Great ideas. I'm still pretty new to owning pins, so I appreciate the input.

As an aside, where can I find the main ramp in stock for $160?

Cliffy's makes a ramp protector just for that problem
