    Have several pins but recently acquired two skee ball machines, model H and S. Just a fyi for those that have skee ball machines. I originally contacted Skee Ball Amusements and emailed their contact number. First asked for model number of one of my machines, they responded. Then inquired about the yellow rails and tape. Didn't receive response. Then contacted the parts department and low and behold they have tons of parts for both my model H and S machine. They have the yellow rails as well as cork. The cork is way cheaper than what you find other places online-$130 for ramp, $75 for target and $25 for back. The rails are a total of $174 plus shipping. They also have the mylar tape at a $1.19 per foot which is cheaper than replacement tape I could find. They have the .25 decals and the balls are $5.50 a piece.
    I found post online about cost of cork which caused me to call parts, otherwise I wouldn't have done so. Am ordering the parts but not the cork becuase not sure how much trouble to install and my model H has some dents/damage to the cork it is certainly playable and is original.
    Barry Scholl is who I spoke to and very heljpful. Hope information is help to someone.

    Skeeball parts department is actually pretty amazing. They have tons of stuff for machines that are 30 or 40 years old and are willing to work with you and help you. Overall I have had several good experiences dealing with them.

    I just did a restore on a model h. Barry is the best. I even stopped there to pick up the parts as its close. They have everything. Just a note though, check eBay for switches....switches on eBay were way cheaper.

    Also replacing the cork not only looks better but also quieter. Good luck.

    By any chance is this company still in business? I'm having difficulty finding their web presence.
