    There is a special nut at the bottom of Bally pinball legs that the foot screws through, mine got rusted into the foot and I had to grind it off so I can fit new feet

    I now need a new one, does anyone know where to buy one of these?

    Hmm. I thought that nut was actually part of the leg itself.

    As far as I understand they're supposed to be welded to the leg, not replacable

    It's part of the leg. Just nut it on top.

    I don't think you are going to replace it, or at least it is not worth the hassle.

    I am pretty sure that threaded insert is pressed/pinched onto the leg with a huge press. I have often had them come loose and start spinning with the leg leveler.

    As previously mentioned, put a nut on the top and bottom of the leveler. Also, put on a washer on either side to keep the nuts from binding when you turn them.

    Spot weld a nut there.

    That new leg looks great!

    Don't throw the old ones out, give them to somebody with a MIG and let them weld a new nut on.

    Thanks everyone, I reckon welding a nut on is the solution. It does look like it is a type of rivit system that was pressed on with a press

    If anyone wants my old ones, the Levellers work fine. I just can't stand to see old rusty legs on a game. I tried nev r dull but they are slightly pitted. Come on over and get them or I can bring to the Allentown show.
