Thanks for the info – in my opinion for as nice as they turned out I don't think that you paid too much at all – I am currently getting a bunch of pieces cleaned up that I had cast as well – I will update more about my process and costs as I continue but yours are great and you should be very happy to have them – good job !

You did very well, if you only asked for 5...$80 a piece, mold, cast, trimmed, polished.
Had you asked for 50 pieces to start, or 100, the cost would have dropped dramatically.

I think you are lucky to find him!

If you do have a mold fee, you should be entitled to take the mold home, or ask for a volume quote,
it you have a demand for these,

They were likely made with a one off sand mould.

Probably about $10 each for 20pcs in Shenzhen (in cast aluminium).

Yes, I am very happy with them and to have found the company so close to where I live.
He was a very nice gentleman and even let me come into his shop and watch the process in works.....(not on my pieces though)
....please do update on you project. I'd like to see that.

I thought about asking if anyone else was needing these brackets too but I had no ideal what I was going to be getting back.
I guess I should have asked about a bulk deal.
There was no mold fee, just a set price he quoted me on what I told him I wanted.....for all I know, he now has a mold for these, but I don't know.

Is there a difference between cast aluminum and 6061 aluminum alloy?

The 6061 alloy is primarily for "wrought" applications rather than sand casting. It would be problematic for sand castings.

That said, I have acquired a Jennings Sportsman of the 1935 variety. It is painted black, and the black finish is original to the machine. I found it really heavy to move and upon opening it up found seven 1.5 large dry cells corroded, leaving a white mess on the wood. All the wiring was gone associated with wiring the dry cells.

The machine is not functional and has a white like coating on all of the internal metal. Maybe from the dry cell corrosive gas and storage high moisture.

This is not a problem that can't be resolved by cleaning. But I am missing the four outside leg bracket caps. I have one original leg to the machine that is painted black and has the metal bottom leg tip. The other legs are finished natural with what looks like silver paint for the leg tip.

I need the outside leg bracket caps. I do not have an example of the outer bracket and since I am located in a dead zone for pinball as a whole in Harrison, Arkansas I have to hope I can get some help and advice from a pinsider.

Does anyone have one of the inner brackets that they would sell? One of mine is broke off at the bottom. It does not effect anything, just thought I would ask. Thanks
