    I thought I put this up I was looking at buying this part a series bar for a Gottlieb 7 target bank in my country Australia but cant buy it here so looked at Marco pinball and the shipping cost is around $70 transfer into Aussie dollar =Around $100. That's a lot for shipping so I thought I will build it myself.IMG20190419144340 (resized).jpgOriginal Part. IMG20190419144404 (resized).jpg Material to be used. IMG20190419144423 (resized).jpg Cut and holes drilled. IMG20190419144834 (resized).jpg Tools used. Cost for Material =$4. What have you made that you couldn't buy or to keep the cost down.

    Nice work!
    Hard to imagine the shipping cost can get so high on a relatively lightweight part, but that's a long distance.

    Looks good. Original steel, remake aluminium? Also, how much time did it take?

    Quoted from ReadyPO:

    Also, how much time did it take?

    About 45 mints and remake aluminum.

    I have made some plastics.

    Coin chutes for Gigi. The pin did not have any and they seem to be hard to find or very pricey. Almost done, these DIY chutes work perfectly. The chute material came from a mangled up Gottlieb coin door.

    Quoted from TractorDoc:Work!

    I tried this thread idea a couple weeks ago. Mine didn't get much love.

    I like the apron you made looks great i might make some gottlieb aprons in the near future.

    Quoted from Raff:

    Cost for Material =$4.

    Cost for tools: $100.00

    But well worth it, of course. That's why we buy them in the first place. "I can pay a plumber $100 to snake this, or buy one and do it myself forever".

    Nice work.

    Hi raff
    see the first JPG, green arrow - I had / have a spare stepper like the one in the picture, not having the bakelite plates --- broken off was the arm with the stepping tooth - see in the lower right corner "green arrow, red Y, 1, 2". A challenge - can I do a repair (?) - I tried to do a new construction with screws - hacksawed a new tooth and mounted the stuff --- and it works. My camera is no good --- at least the new screws and the new tooth You can see in the second JPG. Greetings Rolf

    Not exactly what you were looking for, but custom monster bash topper parts:

    Modeled some lamp baffles, in both petg white and petg black. These were a big hit at the Allentown show.

    In the process of restoring a recently acquired GTB 1965 Skyline I noticed that at some point the head of the rivet (at right side of pic) supporting the coil stop on the yellow pop bumper had sheared away. A quick and permanent fix was to use a brass bolt (3/16in) and grinding down the head. Extended thread was viced to tension the bolt then lopped off.

    Nice job Wayner

    #21 4 months ago

    Made this a couple months ago for my Jackbot. The only parts I didn't recreate from scratch are the two metal brackets underneath. Had to invest in some tools but now I can re-rivet and replace any rusty/worn blue steel flaps on my games. Below it is the beat-to-shit original.

    Great job Jibmums. With the right tools a lot of parts can be made.

    Rebuilding a STTNG that had been used as a donor for another restoration, so it was missing a lot of parts. Wasn't able to source one of the ramp switch brackets locally, so modeled it in CAD and 3d printed it instead.
