I am working on restoring an original 13 ft. Skee Ball machine model 67, circa 1967, that has the mechanical scoring system and the optional ticket dispenser, minus the "winner" light. I got the machine from the defunct Rocky Springs Park in Lancaster, PA but after finding a ticket hidden in the ticket dispenser from Old Towne in Toledo, Ohio I'm thinking Rocky Springs was not the original purchaser.
What I need help with:
1) How high should the rear of the machine be from the floor to the bottom of the rear section where the legs are mounted?
2) The rubber foam type material that lines the scoring assembly, just below the score ring board, was totally dried out and falling off. It seams to have been 1/8" thick rubber foam that had adhesive on the material to keep it in place. Can anyone recommend a specific material for this application?
3) Concerning the silver/chrome stripe on the yellow covers on both sides of the alley. Does the stripe run the full length of the yellow covers? What is it's width and is it centered on the covers? Is the stripe silver or chrome in appearance?
4) Is there a source for the the plastic "banking" strip that is on both sides of the alley?
5) For those who have replaced their cork pieces with the Bangor Cork product, did you use their adhesive on all the cork or did you use something different? My original cork was all attached with a water soluble adhesive except for the ramp which I think was contact cement.
6) Any suggestions on where I may find a "winner" light?
7) Any suggestions on where or how to get a "Skee Ball" decal that is on the head on either side of the score viewing area?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide,
