I need one. I doubt anyone would stock this weird part. So i'm looking to see if someone has a junk playfield, & willing to sell one.

Ok, here is how I fixed the broken blade one here. Make sure you have the post, & press washer from broken blade. I tried a wider blade from something & it broke when I drilled it larger. My fix was to take a Bally bulls eye target, solid circle color one. Red is common. I drilled the target rivet off, & removed target. So now you have a blade that fits the stack. Took a marker for a dot to carefully drill a hole for post. I just placed it on removed stack screw holes, & guessed the center where the post goes through the playfield. Hole drilled ok, so I got the post snug with blade. With the post pointing down on a hard surface, you fix the press washer on & gently tap it down with a hammer. Poor mans fix for what seems to be a non available part unless a playfield is junked. Guess about a 1000+ balls played & its still ok.

Nice! Thanks for a detailed "hack fix" description

Now we just need a fix for people without the post!

Possibly use a threaded bolt style post, on a wide blade. Likely would have to get very short length contact blades for scoring.
