Does anyone know a place that sells the cheapest side cabinet inside blades? I always want to do them, I just didn't want to spend $70 plus dollars. I figured or hoped someone does them for around $40-50? I would definite give repeat multiple sales. I like to change up my pins pretty often, and I like to bling them out a bit. (My hobby, since I got hurt and can no longer play sports. I like to do LED lights and blades, and maybe even more. Also I guess any cheap part places as well. I go through google and go on multiple sites. I rather try and do one company and give them all of my business. Thanks. Have a great weekend.

Quoted from pinsanity:

Buy a full size sheet of mirror polished number 8 stainless steel in 0.8mm thickness.
Ask pinside for the mirror blade CAD file which a number of us have access to.
Go to the nearest metalwork place and ask if they can do a deal on cutting if you supply the materials and file.
You will get about 8 sets (pairs) from a standard size sheet of SS equating to about $30 a set cost.
I was originally paying retail prices but all my clients were asking for extra mods with their machine purchases so bought a few sheets of SS and did the above as added extras in the transaction (sold at cost).

Wow, that's great information. Do you buy the mirror at home depot or lowes, or would it be on pinball websites. Is the mirror blade CAD a list of sizes for each pinball machine? Thanks for the valuable info.
