All these years now and I thought I had bought a pretty beat up Pinbot when I paid $750 for it in ‘91. Factory mylared, no broken spiral ramp, and the topper had only a few tiny cracks on one corner near a screw hole. Now I am wondering if a new topper is the least of my worries and if I want to or should get a repro just as an insurance policy on my original topper, like the insurance policy I got on my machine by buying a NOS bare pf, translite, visor assebly, spiral ramp, plastics set, and all the standup targets, and drop bank stickers and pf sticker sheet (all the ramp stickers) back when they were available. Hell I even got a black Jackbot spiral ramp to back up my rare orange NOS ramp. Talk about paranoid at the time.

To this day, I have never needed any of those. I shopped it, relamped it, replaced all the flasher power resistors and HUO play has saved him from his routed siblings fate.

Anyone else buying one as insurance? Kind of on the fence after 27 years of having all the spares in storage.

Please add me to the list.

No worries Bublehead, I have a problem with purchasing spare parts that are difficult to find. Wife hates it but I always think of my kids needing that part in 20 years when I'm long gone

Its that fomo factor. Or when you need it its not available anymore like so many parts, because the ones that typically break are the one no longer left! Like the spiral ramp whick some is now making.

Please take me (Gogojohnnyquack) off of the list ibjeepin . I was able to find a used one a while back. I appreciate you keeping track and remembering that I was looking for one!

For anyone who will need to build the flasher wiring harness, here are pics of my build where I made a simple loom with a 2x4 and nails to get the wires in place using the holes in the top of the head to set spacing. I ran the wires using the diagram in post #204, then removed the nails one at a time, screwed down a light socket in its place, trimmed/soldered the wires to the socket, and held everything in place with a lot of zip ties. Have fun!

gogojohnnyquack , great work, but you make me appreciate the shape my Pinbot topper was in when I bought it. I only had to replace all the flasher power resistors (that were almost all laying in the bottom of the cabinet) and relamp it. The power resisters make a huge difference on the light show. You would think they would make the flashers dimmer but it actually makes the flash brighter by reducing the lamp ramp up time. Worth replacing for those who have left them off.

Please put me on your list for one topper. Thanks!

What's the number to meet minimum qtys?
I'm wondering (out loud) if it makes sense for me to "fill the gap" and offer these for sale at Pinball-Mods.com.

If this is something that interests you - let me know.
