Chief Shuffle Bowler (resized).jpg

#1 1 year ago

I picked up a United Chief Shuffle Alley. Game is in great cosmetic condition. The scoring mechs need some work, but overall should fix up OK. One of the pins is broken (pin 3). I ordered what I thought would work from a parts supplier, but the pins are too long (they are 10 1/4" long). The pins on the game are approximately 8" long. I've checked as many parts places as I could think of but they all have 10 1/4" pins). Any suggestions on where to go? I have no problem buying a full set as finding a number 3 would be impossible (or I will buy just one that doesn't match paintwise to replace the one broken pin), but I can't find the shorter pins. Any help would be appreciated.

Quoted from Hogey:

I picked up a United Chief Shuffle Alley.

Was just interested where you picked this machine up.
Years back, I went through someone's mid 50s Shuffle, and remembering it
was in really nice shape. I'm pretty sure that it was a Little Chief..
If you had found 8.5" pins on ebay or wherever, I'm sure they'd want 3 or 4 X
what the 10" pins go for. I image a set would be much..
Fortunately, I should have one that I should be able to spare.
Coils and such I can give away, but these pins are scarce. I'll need $10.00 plus
shipping. I'm sure you'll have interest, but first you might like to check and maybe
go through your machine a little bit to see if there's any additional components you may
need. You can shoot me a pm, or sending direct may be best for quicker response..

I have a Chief Shuffle Alley in my parents basement for something for the kids, cousins, nieces and nephews to play when they are there!
