At the current moment i have to recourse that are at my disposal for this build. Two electrical engineers and one of the best stainless steel welders in the industry to fabricate the parts I could not find.
I have completed roughly 20 hrs of do-diligence in searching for "parts". In my research the only parts that are difficult to find are wire ramps, and metal ball guides. Australia has a few parts that are "rare". But most of the parts are coming from a collection of people.
I mean there are only 25 assemblies, And the boards are the easiest thing to come by in terms of obtaining parts.
Vid1900- When I was doing my cost analysis I was not finding it to be over 12K. But I guess time will tell. And considering the value of the machine keeps increasing 13 K for a NOS MM Machine is a small price and i think if i did need to sell it i would still be able to make profit off of it.
Worse comes to worse I sell the playfield and make a baby's crib out of the cabinet.
However it would still be nice if someone had a MM machine and wanted to duplicate there wiring harness. Would make things a lot easier.
Wish me luck and I will keep you posted
