Does anyone have the top search disc wiper arm disc for a 1970s six card Bally bingo? Specifically, I need for a Ticker Tape, and if you have any search disc wiper arm assembly, I might be able to make it work. Would prefer with an intact plastic collar at the bottom. My poor card 4/5/6 search disc doesn't work too well. Misses about half of the combinations, and I've tried most everything to fix the wipers outside of soldering on completely new fingers.

Bingo playfields needed!

Need a populated mystic gate playfield, populated 20 hole playfield with rollovers (double up, Hawaii,etc), populated shoot-a-line playfield (28 holes), populated galaxy playfield (24 holes), and populated miss universe playfield (18 holes). Also need a populated Tahiti playfield and a united roulette playfield (and, 123, bolero).

Need to ship to VA or be willing to transport to the York show.

Willing to buy one of more from anyone that's got one.

Seeking Bally Magic Pockets unit. Complete would be preferred, but I will entertain any condition. I have a great playfield to put it on, but it had been robbed of the mechanism. While I'm dreaming, a shutter would be nice...

This unit was only used on Gay Time and Gayety.

Quoted from Chloro:

It is indeed a Chicago Coin, Soundstage

If you cannot find a reel wiper assembly, you can also use silver solder to affix a new wiper blade onto the existing one. Everything has to be very clean, but silver solder has a higher tensile strength than leaded or lead-free solder. It also takes more heat to melt and conducts better.

Quoted from boilerman:

the notch is onlt to secure the lacing

Yep! But you could still use the Bally lacing holes, surely, and wouldn't have to dremel?

Quoted from o-din:

The flat Williams ones from the 50s are a little different.

I love those! Easy to clean and each one is even more 'keyed' than the standard dual inline package. (Harder to be off by one or incorrectly inserted)

Does anyone have one or more trip banks from a Williams machine with six relays on the bank?

Number of switches and game it comes from - even era is not important, but I do need a total of three banks.

And they must be from a Williams machine.

Thanks in advance!

Hard wiring is not the way to go - those are Bally style plugs. They are repairable, but it's a lot of trouble - drill out the rivets holding the two pieces of fiberboard to the center metal, then drill a hole through a piece of metal that has been bent to the appropriate shape, then re-rivet.

To replace, you can buy a connector from any parts person - number of female holes doesn't matter as long as it is more than the number of male pins. On the female side of the plug, you desolder one wire at a time and wire it to the new plug.

If you desolder the whole thing at once, you will need to take good photos and label with masking tape or similar.

It's not a huge job once you get into it.

You can replace with Gottlieb if you need to - whatever's handy - but I would replace with Bally. Pin spacing should be the same regardless. I would do that to preserve the look of the interior, but that's me.

As to why otaku thinks Gottlieb/Williams are better - it has to do with how they are made - Gottlieb and Williams had a more solid female connector that was not as prone to breakage. There are no clips to catch with a stray piece of fabric, and they are easier to clean.

You can pick up female jones plugs from this thread or certain sellers on ebay or a bingo guy named Joe. PM me if you want his info. Depending on the size needed, they are not necessarily cheap (they're no longer made). They are sold based on the total number of connections - so when you say four, do you mean two wires on each side or do you mean four on one side? The selector plugs could be deceptive if you're just getting into it, since you only use 1/2 at a time.

Most often the plugs are sold in pairs.

You can also 'just play' with the alligator clip. But I would replace. Prevents a clip from falling off and making connection somewhere else. Especially on a backboard connector which is also fighting gravity.

Quoted from dasvis:

does not show on the schematic.

Some of the best modifications I have reverted were documented in the manual and schematic. When a mouse years down the road eats one or the other, it -really- helps.

Some of the worst just existed with no docs - all with the same brown lamp cord.

Need an 'Odd' footrail button used on Bally Ice Frolics, Palm Springs, and Surf Club.

I have the Even and All buttons already, but I need the Odd button to complete my project.

Quoted from way2wyrd:

you can find those on most bingo machines.

That's a two-ring post, the bingos don't have those, unfortunately, United, Bally, Keeney, or Williams.
