    Did you reach out to Ed at GPE. Maybe you would be the perfect guy to buy him out. Win for everyone. I look forward to buying stuff in the near future.

    Quoted from Tallon:

    A source for the 40pin connector on the Williams 3-7 would be nice. I k ow they are hard to source

    That's a good idea. I'll look into it.

    Not sure if I've got the capital to buy out GPE, but it's a fun idea!

    correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't those just (4) 10-pin or (5) 8-pin connectors soldered in place? I don't recall ever seeing a true 40-pin long molex connector on either side of the two mating boards.

    Correct. You wouldn't want a single 4o-pin connector in there anyway. Too much stress on the board. You'd have 39 cold solder joints sooner or later.
    Add on manufacturing costs and the price goes up quickly.

    I totally get why they choose 4 10pin instead.

    Makes it easier to repair too, now that I think of it.

    Just placed another order, thanks for having the 0.156 connectors!

    Hope that you get the 0.100 connectors sometime. But the 0.156 will keep be busy for weeks. LOL.

    Last week we received a shipment of some of the striped 18 AWG wire we'd been waiting on. It's available now in the store

    When one buys wire from you guys, does it come on a spool? if so, what is the length needed to get it with a spool?

    Thanks,

    Thanks,

    Normally I'll put anything over 50 ft on a spool, but if you have a smaller amount you'd like on a spool feel free to just leave that request in the order. No problem

    Quick shout-out to John at Wire-Bot. I've ordered wires a few times now and have been pleased every time. John is the real deal. Buy with confidence. Even his boxes are cool

    Oh good, thanks for confirming. I'll get that one added to the site.

    This is an awesome idea/site. It drives me nuts seeing random wire hacked into games. I placed a small order today but will order more when I need OEM correct wire and don't have it in my scrap pile.

    Right on, appreciate the note! Feel free to reach out anytime if you can't find what you're after, or have any questions.

    Ordered a bunch of various wires to continue revitalizing my #Motordome. If there was ever a kit that included ~5 feet of all possible colors and stripe patterns for both 18 and 22 gauge wires, I'd purchase it. You never know what you may need until you need it

    Thanks for carrying the 0.093 pins and connectors

    Haha, a kit like that is certainly possible! Maybe we'll have to schedule some time to cut down some lengths of all the colors and make some short-length "everything" kits. Kind of a fun idea

    I like the idea but probably would be thinking 10ft depending on price of course

    It certainly would have saved you time from all my questions! Thank you for taking the time on me.

    I’m just cheap, haha, but I do like the 10 feet idea, too.

    I just did the math for 10 feet for all color combinations and no solid colors the 22awg would be $198.
    There would be 5% discount before any other savings for being a kit.
    That's way more than i thought it would be.
    Same for 18awg is $225

    Funny, I was gonna say 2.5 feet. With boards on the playfield I'm finding most of my wiring is only 6-24"

    Different perspective haha, I'm elbow deep in an old Bally restoration and the wire harness is filthy and I'm afraid if i clean it i break something, so having a spool of each color would be nice.
    If I win the lottery I'm just gonna order 100' of each color lol.

    Do you have the entropy style WPC door wire harness?

    We don't have any pre-made, but we can make one for you if needed. Drop me a note if/when you're in the market!
