    Quoted from cad-kid:

    Will you be starting up a Shuffle league? That could be fun.

    If I could work my head around the logistics of it all and get everything running well, possibly.
    I’m new to everything and not here everyday to work on machines, so it’s gonna be awhile

    Shuffle league would be so much fun!

    You’ll see people coming with their own customized pucks, like bowlers have their own balls.

    Quoted from PochuckValley:

    Just picked up two Williams gold mines (non working, one is supposedly complete) to add to my shuffle inn. At this point, I’ve decided I want to collect 6 Williams shuffles and place them side by side - league champs, strikemaster, alley cats, and top dawg still to come. Don’t ask why, I have no answer. Loving the way it looks so far.
    If anyone is looking to free up some space in north jersey area please let me know.

    This looks awesome!

    I really want to make custom pucks per game.

    I have an old junky puck that needs some help. Shouldn’t be too difficult to do in photoshop.

    Maybe take some promo plastics from Mousin Around, Bad Cats and Junkyard and replace the red insert with a plastic. Should be good for Shuffle Inn, Alley Cats and Top Dawg.

    Anyone have an United Omni? Found this photo online, but I doubt the puck exists.

    Kinda what I was thinking for other machines.

    Those cat eyes would work perfect for alley cats. Anyone know of printers that print onto plastic?

    I opened up my shuffle inn and the battery section has been removed.

    Is it only for high scores? Can I still install the cell battery mod ?

    Don’t bother with cell batteries. Do the NVram chip. They work extremely well and never a worry for the next 30 years.

    The batteries hold the high scores and all your settings for the game.

    Some of the older games had branded pucks. Here are a couple from my 1950 United Skee Alley. I think my Bowlette had pucks with a Bowlette graphic also.

    Quoted from Morinack:

    The mechanical flip number games were on the original Philadelphia Toboggan Skee Ball machines.
    Good luck trying to track one of them down, they seem to get parted out quickly on ePay.
    I find that everywhere from Ohio and to the east is where the bulk of skees are found.
    You can search all of craigslist depending on how far you want to travel to get it. https://www.searchcraigslist.org/
    I got lucky that someone near me had the 13 foot Model S I was looking for. I was searching for a couple years.
    They tend to go quickly and depending upon what parts are missing and general condition prices can vary from $400-$2000.
    You just need to decide what it is worth to you.
    The correct balls will set you back if not there.

    Thank you very much!!

    Does anyone know the scoring area angle for a skeeball model S? Looks to be 40-45 degrees?

    #713 1 day ago

    Pochuck Valley - your batteries are missing because the board already has NVRAM installed. U25

    You don't need to do anything.

    Well that was nice of the previous owner. Where is it?

    #715 1 day ago

    Look at your posted pic. The NVRAM is U25. It is the chip that looks different from the rest. It has a little circuit board that plugs into the chip socket.

    It’s to the left of the Shuffle Inn U27 rom. It has the brand name of the NVRAM maker stamped on the bottom of the circuit board.

    Question on a classic skee ball. Friend had the wire break on the 10 point switch. He still had the part that snapped off. Any good ideas to fix it with the part that broke, or would it be better to just replace the whole switch with a new wire?

    #717 5 hours ago

    Without seeing a pic of the switch, if it’s a leaf type, he could get a replacement leaf, or just get a new switch. PBR, Marco, etc.

    #718 4 hours ago

    Similar to this one. The wire on it snapped, so assuming the switch itself is fine. Wasn't sure if that wire can be removed and replaced with something else, or would it be better to just replace that whole switch with a replacement.

    You will need to replace the whole switch. Once the land (where the wire is soldered/connected) is broken off, there’s no repair.

    You should be able to find a part # on the switch. Look it up on Mouser, Newark, etc. There’s so many variations that I doubt PBR or Marco would carry it, unless it’s widely used in pinball machines.
