The Bally Grand Slam and Speakeasy used the awesome, but very unique "flyaway target assembly." (See pic - HOMER, 10 J Q K A) Someone gave me a Grand Slam (nothing more expensive than free! heh), but the posts supporting the assembly were smashed. This feature is central to the game.

After looking high and low with no luck, I thought pursuing 3D printing made sense. But I needed good parts, so I reached out to people with these 2 games in their collection. Corey captmonkeypants was amazing enough to loan me his parts.

Then I contacted a local 3D printer to reproduce the posts, and the targets themselves since a few people were looking for those also. Not inexpensive, but worth it.

If anyone needs the posts or the targets, please let me know. I will produce and sell them very reasonably, just to offset some of the design costs.

Here are a few pics along the way. A million thanks goes to Corey captmonkeypants again for the parts loan!

If you have a game that you can't find parts for, ask your pinside brethren for help and give 3D printing a try!

Quoted from mdeslaur:

Oh nice! I've been terrified of breaking a target ever since I got my Speakeasy.
Do you have a picture of the 3d printed targets?
I'll probably be interested in buying a set of posts and targets.

Second pic from the bottom shows the reprinted target in white. It works flawlessly. Trying to figure out the best way to put the letters/cards on it. I will try waterslide paper first.

Once I figure out the cost, I will let you know.

Quoted from kursiv:

Ah I see, your Grand Slam playfield pict is showing repro posts and non-repro flyaway targets..?

That's not the actual pic of the machine, just a pic of the assembly. Here is the actual, with one repro target installed. The repro posts that are working were printed in white, having them redone in blue.

Let me know if anyone needs these reproduced parts:

Posts (pair, 3 pieces) - $35
5 Targets (blank, no print on them, recommend water slide decals for the letters or cards) - $15

Priority shipping is ~ $7

Not making money on this, just covering print costs and design cost.

Added 6 months ago:

Pricing update on posts - $50 for the complete post set. $20 for the target set. Up due to materials and printer.

Quoted from alexanr1:

Would you share the gccode for the parts?

Possibly, once I offset the design costs. A little ways to go. Not trying to make $. Selling them reasonably just recoup some.

I am still making these as the requests come in for them. The targets are holding up great since they just fold back.

Let me know if you need supports or targets.
