    Figured this may be the place for this (Bingo subforum) but maybe it belongs in the wanted posts. Anyway, I am interested in any bingo game NOS pieces, especially buttons, lockdowns, and backglasses for the right games. Also playfields, if they even exist anymore. At this point I don't have any need for mechanical parts unless it's gears or clutches. Every now and then I run across this stuff. Anyone got anything? I'll see what happens here before I post this anywhere else. Not holding my breath

    Phil, have you had any luck with your NOS stuff?
    I would consider replacing my play field if I got my hands on a NOS one.
    Do have some stuff to barter with.

    Nothing yet. I've only seen one upopulated NOS Bikini playfield, it was owned by a collector in Maryland. That was probably ten years ago, so I doubt it's still around and I've lost track of him.

    You can get playfield repro's here: http://www.ballybingo.co.uk/index1.html

    Backglass repro's here (even with the chrome lines!) for about $200: http://www.coos.net/bingo_e/

    They also have repro button, knobs, and plates - the only place I know that makes them!

    What is the shipping charges on those items?

    #6 5 months ago

    Note that the $200 foils do not have the mirror lines - only the full glass repros.

    Does Coos sell the buttons, etc.? They are not listed on his site. Anyone know the prices?

    #8 5 months ago

    Phil, contact Coos, he is good to deal with.
    I got my Bikini mask's form him, as well as a lock down plate and
    coin plate!
    Nick, your right on the back glass(s).
    I would think the shipping would be a high!

    Quoted from Terry1:

    I would think the shipping would be a high!

    I bought from Coos a Miami Beach reproduction backglass with true mirrored lines last year. The cost was 710 euros, of which 300 was for crating and shipping to Seattle. 25 was for insurance in the amount of 600 euros (I assumed the risk for the remaining 110 euros.)

    He built a narrow crate using 1/2” plywood on the sides and 1/8” composite wood on the front and back. It looked like an oversized kitchen drawer with the normally open side covered with 1/8” composite wood. It was substantial and had the clever touch of a drawer pull on the top of the crate, which nudged the delivery person in the direction of carrying the crate the right way - using the handle.

    The backglass was shipped through FedEx and I had it within three days. The glass was wrapped with brown paper, then wrapped with seven individual (and numbered) layers of bubble wrap. It was sandwiched by foam peanuts on either side. It arrived without blemish.

    Coos takes payments through PayPal, and PayPal handles the conversion from dollars to euros. He made the glass without asking me for a deposit. He makes the glasses in batches and needs suitable weather for doing his work (chemicals and fumes), so you probably won’t get a glass as soon as you order it. I waited several months.

    Would I do it again? I told myself the Miami Beach was a one-time thing, but now I’ve got a Key West glass on order. I own only two games, so I tell myself this is the last time to spend the big bucks. That will be true until i get another game….

    The numbers panel in the photos is original to the game. The outer glass is what I got from Coos.

    The game looks fantastic and so does the backglass. In the picture the replay meter doesn't look like it lines up perfect in the window slot. Is the cut out on the backglass for the replay counter window a little short?

    #11 5 months ago

    Vic, you are correct. The replay meter is riding too low in its window, although the low angle of the photo greatly exaggerates the offset. I just checked an original Miami Beach backglass, and it seems that Coos has got the replay window in the correct position. That makes me wonder if my meter was mounted a little low at the factory or perhaps it was remounted low at some point. I'll check it out the next time I pull the game out of the line.
