    Ok, so this is frustrating that another lucky seven has popped up and I missed out. Where did you find it? Happy for you.

    Finished with it or not, I’m your huckleberry when you are ready. . Let’s keep it in Ohio

    Back to the restoration, the Genco logo and related lane information can easily be reproduced in vinyl with appropriate pictures. More on point, would be to create spray masks and use a single stage urethane.

    Would simply take a little time in adobe illustrator and the plotter/cutter

    If Clay or Mitch is able to provide Hi-Rez photos and dimensions, we would be well on our way.

    Quoted from Mitch:

    The crazy thing is that I pulled mine out of a Ohio basement.

    That is what is so frustrating. I’ve had want ads, a saved Google search, saved eBay search, and a craigslist search for over five years now and somehow keep missing out on these

    Quoted from amkoepfer:

    I am hoping to get hi res pics and dimensions, and then take that to an artist/printer that can get it made for me. Spray masks would probably be the way to go, id just be very nervous doing it!

    That is why I offered, this skill set is what I do for a living.

    Looking great... so rewarding when you can see a physical difference with a little bit of work

    That last picture of the roll down holes with all the switches, so well organized, just speaks to the simple elegance of this game. Beautiful engineering!

    Enjoying the progress, thanks for sharing

    Really progressing fast with your effort, love following along. Roll that ball!

    She’s a beaut!

    Best fix is to create a metal enclosure that wraps the corner and use it to fill with liquid wood/bondo, then sand, prime, paint and stand back and admire. Short of that, consider it a beauty mark that tells the story of the machine

    If you get totally stuck, I think you are within clays service area. Having a working example and such a breadth of knowledge, I would think he should be able to straighten out the issue fairly quickly.

    #107 24 days ago

    Absolutely, that’s why I prefaced it with “totally stuck “.

    Keep on driving...enjoying the process
