I bought a NOS Buccaneer/Ship Ahoy spinner from Mayfair a couple years ago. While it was NOS, it did have a few scratches/nicks. It's an item you'd have to call about though (it may have been the last one...).

#128 5 years ago
Quoted from jrpinball:

The only game after "Buccaneer" and "Ship Ahoy" which used a metal spinner is "Surf Champ"/"Surfer". The Italian export "High Seas" is later by a few months though. I would imagine they used whatever they had on hand to use up the existing stock of metal spin targets. Maybe not, but there does seem to be many of these games around with the 'wrong' spinner.

It was a popular game, and the spinner is the main shot and a direct hit from the flippers. They took a lot of abuse and probably just broke. They carried the spare spinner in the parts catalog for a few years afterwards too. I doubt they needed to substitute during production.

Quoted from o-din:

I could use the wood pedestal for the head on my recently acquired Gottlieb flipper. It fits most early wedgheads. Preferably with original paint. Thanks! It looks like I may also need one score reel assembly for the Big Casino of the same era.

Something like this perhaps?

pedestal.jpg

And which score reel? (1's, 10's, 100's). I have a box of various ones I think.

#144 5 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

That would work! Ones score reel please.

Pretty sure I have one. Do you need the score reel too, or just the stepper assembly?

Send me an email and we'll work out the particulars.

I could use one of these cast nickel coin drops. It's from a Bally Skill Roll, but I'm not sure if they used them elsewhere (kiddie rides maybe?). Anyone ever see these floating around?

Five Cent cast coin drop

Quoted from AlexF:

Is this to complete the parts machine? That's going to be tough part to find.
This one is sort of similar but looks like it takes a quarter.
ebay.com link » Crome Coin Entry Chute With Plunger Hci 42 1351 00 Nos Arcade Game Pat Sfk

yep, I think it's one piece that's not rattling around among the pile inside the cabinet. There's a funnel underneath that leads the coin to the coin mech (which it still has), so a quarter drop might work. Just need something to guide the nickel in.

I really haven't started looking much yet, but something like this seem encouraging. I'm aiming for 'functional' first, accuracy second on this one.

Quoted from egyptrus:

Does anyone know where I can get the flat metal guide show in this picture? I contacted PBR and they said they don't have it. This is on a Jacks Open. It's not in terrible shape but the metal isn't straight (looks like someone tried to "adjust" it and bent it a bit). If I could find a new one or one in better shape, I'd take it. It has the angle bend at the end of it as well.
Thanks,
Dave

Those can be removed (this era uses the twist nails to hold in, so need to 'twist' them on the way out). Then the bends/kinks in the guide can be tapped out/removed fairly well. That one looks pretty clean, so should fix up nicely. Some Mother's Mag&Alum polish on it, and it will gleam too.

#664 4 years ago
Quoted from egyptrus:

I'll openly admit that tapping this out to get it straight will likely result in it looking worse than it does.
I was surprised to find that PBR doesn't stock them as this seems like a part that was on a lot of games in that era.
If they aren't available then I guess I won't have a choice but to try and straighten it out. Is there a preferred method for doing that?
Dave

Just need a hard block to use (covered with something soft, so as not to scratch the surface), and then tap it with it face down (so any tap marks are on the back instead of the front. A larger piece of pipe held in a vice also works well for the bend portion. And can 'roll' the kinks out sometimes too, rather than tap them. The key is to protect the chrome on the front side from getting scratched, and just work small areas at a time.

I would send it to mike chestnut and get it replated, he does get work at a fair price

This one looks to be NOS and is going to shine up fine. I'll probably put this one on my keeper Skill Roll and move the existing one to the project.

I found it locally, from Crow River Trading!

#688 4 years ago

Anyone happen to know what the modern-day equivalent is of this fluorescent ballast?

Xformer.jpg

It says 110V, 60 Cycle AC, Line amp .35 (I think; might be 118V.) It's for a 13W T5 style fluorescent bulb. The original Robertson Transformer catalog # is S-113. It uses an FS-4 starter (not shown).

I've poked around a bit online, but I'm not up to speed on fluorescent ballasts and such yet. I figure there must be a modern replacement, as the T5 bulbs and FS-4 starters are readily available.

#690 4 years ago

Hmm, maybe. I see those have four wires instead of three, and a different line amperage for the T5 bulb. Good size though.

Quoted from EM-PINMAN:

Could use a 70's Gottlieb Coin Door bracket which is located on the inside of the door. May have been used on 60's models as well single or Multiplayer, so fairly common. I believe it keeps the Lock Down Bar Latch Handle secure when the Coin Door is closed. One of my machines was missing this when I bought it.
Ken
Gottlieb coin door bracket 003.JPG (Click image to enlarge)

I rarely see those on coin doors (maybe once or twice). However, it's the same bracket that's used to hold down the spring-loaded end of the credit unit in the backbox too, if that helps locate one.

Quoted from pinskull:

I would like to replace them all.

A new set from PBR is only like $57 and they look terrific. One of the less expensive playfield plastic sets.

#873 4 years ago
Quoted from MikeO:

What do you mean by the "3A"? Is 3 the number of slots you need on the actuator or is that the number of switches you need for that specific relay?
What does the "A" mean?

Guessing that's the nomenclature off the schematic coil chart, so A=normally open, and the number is the quantity of the switches. '3A' would then be three normally open switches on the coil's switch stack (in the 'ladder').

That's the 'round end' style. Rocket Ship would have used the 'trapezoid' shaped end. Although the round end style should be functional in the older games. They switched in about 1965-66 or so.

Quoted from boilerman:

I Did manage to work something out with chan this time. so it is heading my way.
to be honest I emailed him before you posted the cl ad. I saw aurich post that said chan was still looking to sell it and thought I would try just one more time.
other than hit the deck (I have a Neptune) I really don't have anything on my want list.
thanks for the tip.

Good, glad you got one. One less seeker.

The original (higher price) ad had been posted too, several weeks ago or so, IIRC. I managed to resist.

I have an extra Hit the Deck, I just haven't gotten around to it yet...

Anyone happen to have a decent '56 Gottlieb Rainbow playfield lying around to part with?

#1017 4 years ago

Gottlieb only ever used 31" and 27" legs. Usually the 27" are on the '76+ year games, but they did use them on some early multi-players too. I don't know which length Ship Mates used, but it would have been one of those two lengths, not 28.5".

#1019 4 years ago
Quoted from AlexF:

Ship Mates has that drop front cabinet doesn't it. I wonder if it's like the Williams drop fronts where there were two different legs sizes used. Williams used 25" for the front and 28.5" on the back. Like Dirt says Gottlieb only used 27" and 31" so I wonder if Ship Mates should have 27" in the front and 31" in the back. Speculation on my part...

Ha! shows ya how many early multi-player Gottliebs I've had... exactly ZERO.

But that combo could make sense.

Quoted from PinballFever:

It does look a bit darker in that area in the flyer

yes, but it doesn't have the pattern that your does around the flipper:
http://ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=2711&picno=6035&zoom=1

The earlier woodrails didn't come with flipper guards. Later ones started to use them though. Ops would end up painting the area around the flippers to cover up the wear, or retrofit them with flipper guards of their own making.

Yours isn't missing anything, it just got the flipper area painted at some point later in its life.

Quoted from boilerman:

I thought they were 3/4" thinking that they were smaller than the reg 1" ones
I pulled a white one from an old pf a guess what TO SMALL! it is a 7/8" insert.
it is a odd ball size that I will be lucky to find in any color

I have one from a 1940's game. It's kinda yellow, and is the marble-ized type of plastic, so wouldn't be an great match. I can spare it though if that's all you can find. Has silkscreening on it that would need to come off too.

#1162 4 years ago

#1253 4 years ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

Darn it!
And I might need two as one looks like it may be non working......

Gottlieb used two different styles of drop chutes on that era of coin door. One is the Heath style, and the other is made by ABT. The coin door is set up to use either one. Both are hard to find though, but at least there are two types to look for.

But if they're complete, they can be made to work. Post pics of what you've got.

#1255 4 years ago

That ABT style looks fine. Both should be able to work (although the Heath chute is missing one cover, so not sure if the nickel will follow the path without falling out).

There's a contact switch inside the micro switch that may need cleaning to register closing when the nickel trips the wire. But requires disassembly to clean it. That might be more than you want to tackle.

#1280 4 years ago
Quoted from pinhead52:

In desperate need of a printed board to a score reel, decagon style (10 sided). With the overlay. I have a bunch of the later printed boards without the overlay BUT the connections get flipped messing up the wiring.
20150816_132817.jpg
As you can see on this one the 1s trace has been burned off... I actually need two of these for two different Diamond Jacks, the 2nd has a burn at the 2s spot...
(Ive temporarily hacked it with a fine wire across the burn but that wont last forever)
Thanks
Ken

A spot of silver solder can repair that (silver solder, not regular). Leckmeck has experimented with copper tape for the same issue (I think it worked). I know the silver solder will hold up fine.

#1286 4 years ago
Quoted from pinhead52:

I was tempted to try foil tape... I would think these cir boards would be avail thou?

They might be, but for just one bad spot on the otherwise good board, it's an easy fix...

#1315 4 years ago

For a '64 Gottlieb World Fair, I could use the score motor chart that's stapled to the right side of the cabinet inside.

I could also use an original set of score/instruction cards for it.

#1316 4 years ago

I could use a ca. 1956-59 Gottlieb lower apron (cream colored, with the clown and seal).

#1318 4 years ago

High Hand would use a zinc plated one (so silver color). (Royal Guard uses the bronze colored one.)

Ok, another long shot, but before I order repros, thought I'd check to see if anyone might have original legs for a Rockola World's Fair Jig-Saw. These have a 'pyramid' style top, but I need the double bolt hole variety (the earlier games had one bolt hole per leg; later games have two).

Need a 1-1/8" diameter translucent white rollover insert for a 1961 Williams Space Ship.
Useable used condition is all I'm looking for. Anyone have a Williams parts playfield with one of these?
image.jpg image.jpg

If you can find two regular inserts of the right size (or one the correct size and one smaller one), then you might be able to fabricate one by creating the large hole in the correct size one, and the smaller hole in the other one, and then gluing the smaller one inside the larger one (i.e., stacking them).

http://ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=1295&picno=47169&zoom=1

(The specific style used on Jig-Saw has a bit of art deco look to it, although the plain ones should work.)

I do know Crow River shows them on their page, but they're modified ten cent slides. That's a fall back plan.

#1498 4 years ago

The coin entry plate isn't so hard to find. It's the coin chutes that are the challenge.

Thanks - never hurts to have an extra set of eyes on the lookout.

Last year there was a guy in PA listing an EM Sinbad for sale on the Lancaster CL, then later on eBay. He said he also had a Strange World backglass (among some other backglasses), but I don't have his direct contact info. I think his name was Mike. Maybe someone here knows him?

#1542 4 years ago
Quoted from boilerman:

that would be mike reeder, i just text him to see if he still has it

Hmm, might be a bit iffy then. I found the Sinbad posting in the CL thread here, and the associated commentary on the seller. Thanks for checking though.

I've also sent a note to Mayfair, but will call later in the week if Steve doesn't respond.

PBR has the thicker style available:
http://www.pbresource.com/springkit/gtb-a7291.jpg

Those old ones are salvageable, with some filing to re-shape, and then swapping around the least-worn for the most-worn. Maybe replace the worst one(s).

#1682 4 years ago

Yeah 3 of them definitely need to be replaced.
Can the thicker ones be substituted here?

No, not really. It's hard to tell from the picture which thickness those are. I was thinking they might be the thicker ones already.
