    Quoted from SteveinTexas:

    Getting parts for our favorite 50's and 60's games that wear out with time are slowly getting harder to find. I rely on Steve Young to stock parts for my games or restores but he has mentioned more than once in the last two years that I am getting the last of a particular relay and he won't be getting more or he needs to check with say Micro products if they will make as parts are gone. I was unable to get a couple of popular springs for baseball games as the stocks have run out probably permanently.
    So keep your old rare relay cores as you make soon have to get hem rewound as one offs. Order multiple baseball springs if you ever find a stash and keep a few plastic baseball bats as some examples.
    Steve J.

    Are you saying we won't be able to buy an entire relay or just the coil? Coils are commonly needed for many applications.

    One thing that desperately needs to be reproduced is the Jones connectors.

    A great many springs are reproduced for antique mechanical slot machines (Bernie Berten: http://www.mrslot1.com/ ) so why doesn't someone do the same for pinball applications? Perhaps some of the slot machine springs will work for pinball use?

    Have you hit up APB? The list of coils they make keeps expanding.

    Who's that? Never heard of them.
