Looking for some wire forms for my Flash Gordon they are the two lower almost recessed wire by the flippers and the the outlanes.

The flipper wireforms are about 2 and 3/8 inches long and the outlanes look about 2 1/2 inches long but sit higher.

This is not a wanted post because someone must make these I would guess or a company would have them. My project Flash Gordon thanks you all if you can help us find them or order them or if someone makes them.

Since these push into wood they have those flared ends to make them stick.

By the way if anyone has or is parting out some Bally machines my guess is this is pretty standard sized stuff. I would think same vintage games would have these wire guides, maybe EBD or Elektra or Black Night.

I don’t know but I would think they are standard?

The ones at the bottom are called biff bars for some reason.

Marcospecialties sells wireforms some premade and they also sell the bare wire and a bending jig to make your own.

Corrected my post the lower wire form (biff bar) is 2 3/8” (Low profile wire form) and the side out lane appears to be 2 1/2” (Normal height).

Got a couple Pinside mails out - they seem pretty standard hope someone can help me out...my Flash Gordon machine thanks as well...Emperor Ming of course awaits...

You don’t happen to know where I can find it do you? I don’t see it on their website. I have a long wireform on an EM that is pretty bad.

First two results are the jig then the stock.
If you look at the stock it will show other diameter stock in the related items tab.
