01-6644.JPGLooking for a Williams P/N 01-6644. It's the gate bracket used on Black Knight, Disco Fever, Solar Fire, and Barracora. Does anyone know where I could find one of these? It was also produced in an assembly A-8092.

PBR, or Marco maybe???

#3 2 years ago

Don't see anything at Marko or PPS, and have a question emailed into PBR.

#4 2 years ago

It shouldn't be too hard to make one, either 3d printed or otherwise.

#5 2 years ago

Marco has it listed but out of stock: http://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/01-6644. PBR was my thought too, or someone parting one of those games out might be your best bet.

I have a spare disco fever populated playfield that I could grab one from. However shipping would be more than the cost of the part. Possibly may be easier to make one.

Thanks, but it's not 5" long.

ebay.com link » Williams 1978 Disco Fever Pinball Machine Playfield Left Ball Gate And Plastic

The odd thing about these ebay posts is that one looks in decent shape, for $14.99, and the other ad is for one that is bent and rusted to heck... for $19.99... and both from the same seller? Makes no sense. I'm afraid I would buy the good one for $14.99 and receive the rusty one. Don't need that hassle!

Am I missing something?

Maybe you can lay it flat next to a ruler and take a pic and/or scan it? Would be helpful for original poster to make one from that.

Without being able to see all of the wire it was tough to tell if they were the same part. The rusted one shows the wire and looks to be the part you need.

Thanks guys, but I have a sample on my Black Knight if I need to make one. It was originally missing the gate, and I borrowed from my Disco Fever project and am looking to backfill there. The ebay ones both look like the right parts, but I just have a bad feeling about it unless someone here can vouch for the seller... it looks like he has a number of machines parted out.

Still waiting on PBR to respond... sigh...

Bend it, like Beckham

#16 2 years ago

I've bought from that seller before. Transaction went fine, everything as advertised. I was buying a similar gate for Comet.

Yeah, if I drill all the holes before I bend it, with a little Dremel work and grinding to round the end, it should be pretty easy to make from a piece of stainless.

Thanks for the info...

I have made gates from large (6" or larger) hose clamps. The width and thickness is just right. Sounds crazy but they are cheap and it saves alot of cutting. Large clamps have a section without screw slots.
Just a different idea.

Excellent idea! That beats trying to salvage a piece of stainless from an old grill cover. I have "unwound" springs before to get good material for making the gate wires... the spring steel seems to hold up better than standard wire.

That is what is great about this forum... we can all share our hair-brained ideas to make life easier for each other.

Thanks!

Buying the part for $15 is risky but trying to make it out of hose clamps is a good idea? What am I missing? $15 is reasonable, just buy it and be done?

#22 2 years ago

I don't think I've ever seen an ebay seller with 4000 100% positive feedback. I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to buy from a seller like that. I've gambled a lot more money than that on ebay sellers with much worse feedback.

I've seen ebay sellers with 40,000 99% positive feedback. That works out to 400 negatives. I wouldn't take those odds unless I was desperate.

I'm at 5000+ with 100% positive. It's possible. I do have a single neutral that will drop off in about a year - but no matter how good a seller you are, there will always be an unreasonable buyer somewhere along the line who expects a ferrari for the price of a cavalier, or personal delivery across the US in 24 hours for 50 cents

PBR finally responded. They have them for $2.85ea. I'm glad I didn't order the used part for $15 plus shipping .

I guess I should buy a 6 pack of PBR to celebrate... you can't beat PBR if they have what you need!

As for the hose clamp material... that idea is now squirreled away for the future when making something is the only option

For anyone that did not get the PBR reference, it is demonstrated here:

Just hit up PBR as I also need this for my wire form.

#27 4 months ago

PBR just said, they do not have this part. Looks like I will be making my own the way Ryan does.
