Quoted from boilerman:
i need one of these.....
You may want to contact Mayfair Amusements . They had a booth at Pintastic and had a barrel full of older caps like that.
Quoted from jdapolito:
need parts for a midway rifle range
Check on E-bay.
OldTomCat selling lots of motors.
I have not purchased anything from him but I did speak with him over the phone.
He was an op and has a warehouse full of parts he is selling off.
If you know the part # google it and see if he comes up.
Quoted from Chloro:
Are these individual contact fingers available?
Is that a Chicago Coin ?
If so they will be difficult to find.
I have purchased entire score reel units and pieced and parted what I needed over the years.
The is a Chicago Coin Club thread on Pinside. Maybe someone has them over there.
Quoted from boilerman:
i just use 3 of these
The remote control part is cool.
I use a power strip that is long enough to come out to the front of the machine.
I also turn the machine off by the switch in the cabinet.
I am kind of paranoid about lightning strikes and surges so the redundant shut off makes me feel better.
Its not a pin but it is em and a Williams.
Looking for an amp for a Williams Music Mite.
Or, if someone has an RCA RP168 with the amp in it I would take that.
Hi guys, I need a 3/4" wire form for a gottlieb. If some has one from any game I will take it.
I never knew.....
I looked up the one I needed and stopped there.
I also contacted PBR but nothing.
Thanks for the heads up.
I believe I need a coil stop.
The one on the right has some material in between the steel and copper.
The one on the left moves in and out.
From a 1951 Williams Music Mite credit unit
Quoted from bob_e:
Gottlieb playfield plastics Big Indian - Big Brave
That target over the drops is always broken. PBR sells the set.
I am sorry, I just sold my big brave after 10 years and I let the old plastics go with it.
I had the sling plastics intact....
I bought the repos because the one over the drops was broken and poorly repaired.
Good Morning and Merry Christmas to all.
I got this Jacks to Open paperwork inside a Chicago Coin Hollywood or Sound Stage a while back.
There are 2 schematics and some of the other original paperwork. It is probably not the complete package.
If you have the game and need the paperwork send me a PM and I will mail it out to you.
In restoring a 1956 rifle game I used a 48v relay ( coil voltage) and a 120v play counter. I believe I wired it into the coin switch and used that pulse to pull in the relay and make the counter. The 120v was fused off of line voltage.
It is probably more work than what it is worth but I was doing some major wiring on the game anyway.
I got the relay from Grainger with the terminal base and mounted it and some other relays on a din rail.
I have found the metal coil mechs fit into almost anything. They have the pins on the ends that can be relocated to accommodate fitting into most pins. The plastic ones ( Like Monex) can be more specific because the pin locations are fixed. If you get one with all the pins on it, you can always cut off the ones that conflict with the installation.
You have to use a coin mech for the coin you wish to use. Dime, Nickle , quarter and all of the different token sizes. Some token mechs will also accept quarters.
Quoted from Nate:
Looking for a pneumatic damping cylinder
A similar device was used on 1950s RCA RP-XXX record players to dampen tone arm movement. They were about 1/2" in diameter and about 1 1/2" long. I cannot remember how they are mounted.
I may be able to find a picture of one if you come up empty looking for one.
Quoted from Nate:
The Damper isn't really a shock absorber.
Like I said, phonographs use these air cylinders to smooth out the drop on the tone arm.
Same principal, the arm is moved and the air is in the cylinder, then the weight of the extended arm pushes the air out of the cylinder so the arm drops at a constant and smooth rate.
If you cannot find what you are looking for there has to be more than one type used on phonograghs of the period or into the 1940s. The one that I am familiar with is on the RCA RP-168 and RP-190.
Definitely smaller in size but same concept.
I found that on my computer the pdf file prints the wrong size.
I use the doc.x file and fool with the size until it is correct out of the printer.
Those clips are usually in the hardware section in the drawers at home crapo. You may have better luck at a real hardware store or aubuchon which carry Midwestern Fasteners. Also in the drawers in the hardware aisle.
I have found flippers.com to be pricey as well but sometimes you have no choice.
I do not remember being upset by the cost of the part and i am ALWAYS upset by shipping and "handling" at all the vendors so if it was high I would have just mumbled under my breath a few choice works that would be inappropriate here.
Quoted from psd4me:
Picked up a Williams Fast Ball it's missing some of the bat mech parts.
Check with steveintexas on pinside. He is everything Williams pitch and bat.
Also look at Flippers.com. John is a Great guy to deal with.
I found lots of parts at Allentown when I had my pitch and bat. Shows are a good source of used and NOS parts if you know what you are looking for.
I gave the new owner of my pitch and bat most of the parts I had.
The only thing I think I have is a NOS pitch motor.
Quoted from SadSack:
I'd give it all away.
I have given away parts over the years and paid thru the nose to buy parts.
I have also had parts sent to me free of charge.
I am always grateful when I get something cheap.
If I pay too much, it must be something I really need.
In the end I like to think it all evens out.
Either way, its a hobby.
When that stupid nothing that I paid too much for shows up, I am still happy I have it!
