    I have a friend in BC that makes reproduction arcade game harnesses. Ken's quality is top notch and he can pretty much crank out whatever you need. Yesterday I picked up another System 11 with toasted GI connectors and it got me to wondering if there is a need/demand for repro pin harnesses. Is there someone here who does them?

    For me I would much rather drop $25 on a new GI harness than sending my stuff of to be repaired. I know that not everyone feels the same. Just curious what folks thoughts are.

    Thanks for the input guys. Like I said I am just curious. The System 11 GI power harness is almost aways toasty. It's an easy to separate harness as I have had to send mine off for repining/new connector so it just got me wondering if it or something similar could be made/if there was demand

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    What really might be helpful is a large selection of striped wiring. I always have trouble finding wire with the color stripes I need. Most places need a minimum 1000ft order, which is excessive if I only need 10-20ft.

    I can see what he has available. I know he mentioned having to buy stuff in large quantities for the work he is doing now

    Quoted from PaulyB18:

    Correct, each harness is tailored for the specific game and playfield. Take make these in bulk, it would require a template made for each game... even after the run and lengths are configured the customer would still need to solder light and switches.

    Totally. I was thinking very small picture. I didn't even think of the underside of the PF nightmare.

    Thanks for all of the perspective guys.
