I spoke to Steve Young last month and he has a need for reproducing this playfield part. The part is a two piece type globe that is on at least the following 3 games playfields:

1) Skill-pool (15 in center corral)
2) Marble-queen (5 in center corral)
3) Green pastures (6 at outer edges)

I don't have the part so I need a sample. Unfortunately I may have to damage it in order to separate it to make the molds. However It can be chipped or damaged and I still may be able to use it. I would also like to know how it mounts in order to properly produce/test it.

If you can help I can get you a free sample when ready which it turn would help test it.

Also if there are additional games this piece is on please let me know.

Thanks!

Did you ever have any luck with these? I needed some so I just printed them. I'll try the acetone vapor trick to smooth them out a bit.

Yes. I did get samples and I'm able to produce the balls. I'm just waiting for Steve Young to approve them. By having the consumer do the labor of flashing,assembly and painting(where needed) i would be able to keep the cost reasonable. My guess is Steve doesn't want to offer them that way.

I'll keep you updated ..

Quoted from johninc:

They look good, but I don't know about the "day glo" colors matching anything original. These were also used in the backbox of "Roto Pool".

Actually the two you show would be reasonable replacements for the 4 and 5 balls on "Roto Pool" Nice work.

Thanks! And yeah, i had to go with the colors i had, but at least they're close.

Cool. How do they look when you have a light bulb illuminate them?

Speaking of Green Pastures, I could use a little help figuring out replay settings for "points", if anybody knows.
