I work for a worldwide manufacturer of radio related products, consisting of high end audio processing, mixing consoles, talk show systems and networking products. The supply chain woes are hitting us extremely hard. Our board manufacturers are often stalled by components with extremely long lead times, recently seeing some products that took a few weeks to now taking months to arrive.
I'm curious how the supply chain issues with components, microprocessors etc... is affecting pinball hobbyists and manufacturers on the newer games made in the last few to maybe 5 years or so. Older games often have difficult to obtain parts, that isn't really anything new. To try to demonstrate an example for the discussion, has anyone had difficulty obtaining a repair part for a new game to be told there is a supply chain issue from the manufacturer/distributor or dealer?
