I have had a police force for some time now and have been watching the market / ebay etc for a skill shot spinner since I got it with no luck. The original spinner was missing when I purchased it and was replaced by a piece of tin that appears to be cut out with tin snips. It works but I am sick of looking at it and would like to make a new one, copied from an original. Does anybody have an original spinner target they would sell or loan or is local (central Illinois) that I could come by and measure etc? It could be broken as long as all pieces are included. I would much rather measure the piece myself than just have somebody send me dimensions. Or... is somebody repopping these? Please advise.

I have an extra spinner decal you can have if you PM your address. I mis-ordered from Marco and doubt I'll ever replace mine again.

A big thanks goes out to SilentGas and boscokid. SilentGas supplied me with an original spinner and decals, boscokid sent me some extra decals. I wound up making 3 spinners total. One for my machine one for Silentgas and I sold one here on Pinside. So here are some pics...

Here is what was in my machine when I bought it...
I will admit it is creative use of an old standup target!

The repro...
Some parts required to make the main body. Pieces shown will make two spinner bodies

Finished Spinner less decal

Comparison...
You decide!

I have a prototype spinner, has red board with hand writing part number down the middle of the yellow sticker.

I've talked to my machinist buddies about having replacements made, mine works fine but shows a lot of wear. Maybe it's time to start making an 'interested' list to see if it's worth tooling up for.

I see people are starting a list in the Police Force club thread so anyone interested please go here:
