    Currently projects are underway to reproduce Seawitch and Star Gazer stainless steel ball guides. There has also been some request for under playfield support brackets.

    We are thinking of making the support brackets as a separate product. I need to know if these brackets are the same from game title to title or if they are game specific. I need to know how much interest there would be for these.

    I believe they will be the same from title to title. I swapped a pair from Hot Hand to Nine Ball and pair from Cheetah to Big Game. There were no issues for me.

    classic_stern Bill I know that you have a lot of classic Stern titles but you are preparing for TPF. Can you check some of your titles after TPF? Thanks

    There is definitely a difference between Bally and Stern brackets. I guess you are referring to the hanger bracket that rests on the lock down mechanism? I would love to see these reproduced since they are usually rusty and bent to sh*t by now.

    He is talking about three angle brackets that mount along each side of the play field and the back of the play field that fasten with screws under the play field and are screwed into the rails to help prevent play field bowing.

    No I'm not referring to those! What I'm referring to are the L shaped rails under the playfield. They support the playfield and help reduce sagging in the center of the playfield.

    Gotchya. Yeah I have seen the same Stern titles either have them or not for some reason. But back to the pf hangers, I would really like to see those reproduced as I said earlier. They don't look very difficult to make.
