Roached Rescue 911 playfield - anyone need inserts?

Added: July 28th, 2016 Ended: July 31st, 2016
Condition: Used, poor condition

Item description

Gottlieb Rescue 911 playfield.

The paint is flaking off the playfield.

It has mylar, so maybe it could be used as practice for mylar removal.

Maybe sand it down and use it for a custom game?

Pop out the inserts to use for repairs or a custom game?

I'll likely only keep this around for a couple days before popping out the inserts myself and tossing it.

[edit]: I few inserts have been removed, so let me know if you need any.

I was just thinking I wanted a playfield like this for practice with an airbrush. I'll think it over and maybe I'll send you a pm tomorrow if it's still available.

Seems perfect for repair practice. Shipping not an option for me, but surely someone nearby will snag.

#4 3 years ago

Yeah, shipping this is not worth the trouble. If there's someone in the general vicinity who wants it and is willing pick it up, it's yours.

#5 3 years ago

curious, what is the best method to pop out the inserts?

#6 3 years ago

Exacto knife and heat gun?

And to pile onto this thread.... If you are considering this one and it is too far, i have one in almost identical condition in Wisconsin that someone can have if this one being offered is too far away.

I need the headlight inserts for my project game. I'm in MA. I'll sent a PM.

#9 3 years ago

I've been looking for a wall hanger, location? Would be happy to have inserts missing.

I am in Southern WI, halfway between Madison and Milwaukee. You can use zip code 53137 on the google machine to see how far away I am from you.

Does anyone have a good method for removing the inserts on a system 3 playfield?

If someone doesn't have a good method for releasing/removing the inserts, there might be another option for those particular inserts. I've seen someone print an overlay for the ambulance to try to hide the burnt headlight inserts. It seemed to look ok with incandescent bulbs, but I'm not sure what it would look like with LEDs.

I can send a scan of that area on this playfield if you want to try that.

Round inserts are fairly easy... I use a socket matched to the size of the insert, and hammer it out from the backside. A little heat first can work wonders too if it is stubborn.

I've done that on 1970s playfields, but the glue on those is weak to begin with. It looked like much more and stronger glue was used on this playfield, so I wasn't sure if that method would work here. I can give it a try.

Ok, I had success with knocking out some inserts. I had a couple of requests already, so does anyone else need inserts from this playfield?
