Seeking the double award dome light cover as used on 4 diffferent woodrails (I know, good luck)


I might be able to help. I'm the guy casting the bank-a-ball animation balls for PBResource. If you can get me one of those dome covers I can cast it and make it available to Steve Young. I would be able get it back to you unharmed (unless it is a 2 part piece .. don't think it is) and get you a free copy for giving me the sample.

Quoted from MikeO:

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


I searched my parts bin and found 2 off a 59 Gottlieb Seven Seas rollover inserts. I'm guessing these are the same as the Williams. This is a perfect candidate for epoxy resin casting. 3D printers would not handle translucency properly and would leave an unattractive ring pattern. I produce those BaB animation balls and I'll take a stab at these.

I'll keep updates coming ..

Is there 115 tap on your transformer. I just restored a Champion which was an 1974 Gottlieb Italian export and it had a 115 tap. Needed to look carefully though.

Quoted from canoncitypb:

It is for an old Gottlieb Target Alpha, but I see them on many other games like Firepower. It screws into the cabinet just above playfield at the back. When the glass slides in it rests on top of it at the back of the playfield. It seems so common I would think someone has to make one.
Does anyone at least know what to call it so I can look it up on ebay or something?

I have this one. Top side is good but bottom has some rust

Quoted from wiredoug:

hows progress mikeV ? its been a while

I have molds done and producing raw ball halves. Steve has approved the one assembled one I sent him. It turns out the stripe layout is different on the two pool themed machines that use them. I won't have the bandwidth to assemble/paint/number the pool balls. I've given him wholesale prices on game specific packages that would include paint masks and details. I also gave him prices for the simplier balls on the other machines as package deals as well. Steve hasn't moved forward with them yet.

I need the button and frame (don't need the bolts or guts) pictured below. It is on several pitch and bats and some other machines in 70s. The outer bolt pattern measures 2 inches on center. Any condition works.

Quoted from Otaku:

I need a complete relay (with coil, standard 30 volts based) that has at least two (or three if possible to be safe) normally-open switches on it, the rest don't matter if present. Any manufacturer is fine but Williams would be preferred. This will only be a relay that is used momentarily so a special coil version (for long activations) is not needed.
This is not for me but for a new friend, I am going to help him rebuild and redesign a terrible system in his game as my final touch on the game on the morning of Pinfest just in time for the tournament. Please help out if you can, thanks! Willing to have it shipped, I'd pickup at the show but I think it would have to be really early Friday morning and there's a bit much on the line. So, shipping definitely preferred.

Does this meet your needs?
This one has three Normally Opened switchs from Williams

Quoted from bronco-jon:

Looking for a player unit or part of a player unit for a 1977 Gottlieb Vulcan.
I am needing the diamond shaped bakelite piece on the player unit. it is the first piece you see on the unit.
Surly other machines from that era have the same player unit on them too, just not sure which ones.

I have this one if you still need any pieces from it.

Hi gang,

I can use the pictured lane guide which is 2 1/8" from screw hole to screw hole. I know these are available new (though slightly different color) but I just need one so I'm trying find a vintage match first.

Quoted from bronco-jon:

The one on the Vulcan measures 4-7/8 end to end. thanks for showing me what you have.

I got another. It measures just a hair under 4 3/4". The contact points appear different so you would have to use yours as a template and drill out some new holes.

Quoted from dasvis:

I thought that a pinsider Mike Vitale aka "Racingpin" was repro-ing these.

Actually my claim to fame is producing the bank-a-ball animated pool balls which are more like flags than balls. Those are actually balls that I don't produce. Though you can also get them from a parted out Gottlieb Mibs I believe.

I have scoured the net for the small williams rectangular plastic drop targets (for a 77' Liberty Bell.) Pinball resources is the only site I could find that had them listed but were "Out of stock"
I would have thought planetarypinball would have had them but they only have the single hole ones. This machine has 2 rivet holes and is only about 1.5"x1".

Quoted from Darcy:

Sand the face of the target. Fill it with white paint, a couple of layers just to cover the ball wear. You can order new decals from Pinball Rescue in Australia. Have done the repair on my 'Hi Dolly, with great success.

I need the actual metal target assembly. Getting one just like pictured would be great. I don't need the painted image as I can handle that.

Quoted from ZNET:

There's a current eBay auction offering 3 complete Gottlieb coin chutes, each in nice condition, for $20 each (buy-it-now), plus $4 shipping. The auction is entitled: "Gottlieb em pinball machine coin chute coin door B-10708 B-10707 both parts." The seller, in Michigan,has a perfect feedback rating. Good luck!

Those are the later internal versions that are quite common and less sought after.

The hard to get ones are the earliest that stick out and have a rounded end. The other kind also stick out and has an angle to it that is more common. Which kind is needed here?

Quoted from robertmee:

Need some advice from the EM guys/gals. I have about 15 populated PF's left, many EM's of WMS and Gottlieb. Shipping the entire PF with parts is too problematic, but I'm thinking about stripping them, and selling the parts separate. For EM part value, what's the best way to remove parts, since many of the roto's, steppers, coils, etc are soldered to the harness. Cut them at the solder point? Does the harness have any value? I've seen some wanted ads for jones plugs, and at least one person has expressed interest to me in the cloth wiring, so best way to preserve their usefulness? I don't want to get strictly in the parts business, selling a single piece here and there. I'd prefer to just box up the major parts and say "here", all the parts for an XYZ game. Realizing I'd get less value, but less time consuming and shipping.

I sell a bunch of parts on ebay under ‘mevoriginals’. Here is my advice:

Sell in bulk as you mentioned otherwise you’ll be at this half your life. Sell by part type not machine bundles

1) Cut steppers off but leave a 1/2 inch of wire so folks can see what color wires was connected. Price $20-$25 each. Williams are the least desirable

2) For very large relay banks I remove all relays springs and such. Combine parts with another and sell in bulk for $20

3) for individual relays assemblies figure $20 bulk of 10 per brand

4) Gather all male/female Jones plugs for $20 in bulk of 10/10

5) Rototargets go for around $75

6) Flipper assembly pairs go for $20-$30. Gottlieb and solid state best

7) Pops assemblies go for $20-$30 for 2-3 depending on condition

playfield posts - I sell combined from 3 playfields for $20 unless they are the older marble style or the metal ones $30-$40 for those in bulk

9) Stand up targets I usually sell 12-15 for $20

10) Switches: one box from 5 playfields for $20 if you want to go through the effort

Aprons: $15-$50 depending on apron. Most are a hard sell even at $15

Plastics sets : some have no value others go for $50 plus. If you can flatten them correctly they will sell for more. Best sellers are slings which go for $25 and ones that are near drop targets

Lane guides: 30 or so for $20

Good luck! Prepare to spend a weekend plus stripping them all. Get free boxes from the post office online (love there 7x7x6 box .. most items in bulk except plastics/aprons I described above fit in there .. the larger in medium flat rate boxes). They stack to the ceiling so it will be easy to store all the stuff until it sells
