Safecracker special coin mechs.

Quoted from johnnyutah:

Sorcerer pop bumper caps. I need a set, can't find!

Many Sorcerer owners would be in for a set since at least one always seems to be broken ...

#353 2 years ago

Pretty much any plastic for Johnny Mnemonic....as well as the decals. Aside from the occasional slingshot plastic, it is impossible to find anything else for this game.

Quoted from Kingsley73:

I've talked to a LOT of people who didn't realize that this plastic was even missing from their Demolition Man, let alone had ever seen one....unless you buy it with the complete kit, there is practically nowhere to find these to purchase individually. Getting this little baby out there for individual purchase would be wonderful! Original part number was/is 31-1919-17.

Still haven't found this bad boy yet either, outside of the full reproduction set for $159.

Quoted from mbarreira:

Cirqus Volaire - Guard-Ball Guide With Blue Bumper Pad Kit
This is a replacement for the Williams P/N 04-10253-1 (rhs) and includes the screw and the blue rubber pad. The guide is made from stainless steel. Used on the right side of playfield on Cirqus Voltaire.
Its sold out at Pinbits for so long.

Any news on this? Someone said that Mantis could reproduce this part, if they find a doner?

Quoted from PPS:

I'm sure they all are issues, and multiple licenses for many thousands of $.

pps Can we do the set minus the Arnold & Robert Patrick plastics I think a lot of people would buy the set as a lot of the other plastics are usually pretty beat.

#366 1 year ago

Cyclone blue skill shot ramp. I've never seen one without the tabs broken and I haven't seen a NOS one for sale in years.

We have all the other ramps and CPR pf's. We had CPR plastics but they sold out years ago.

Quoted from MeNaCeFiRe:

Would you consider remaking the small opto board that controls Bigfoots head on Whitewater? They are nowhere to be found...

It's been over a year since you posted this, but they are available if anyone's still looking:

A pinhead asked me to help him out with a unobtainium drop target as wants to restore his game to original parts - Drop target 13A-11. The is a design just needs to be made and tested. The original and proper drop target can't be found anywhere and often a different design tagged with the same number.

Would a 3D printed part be strong enough???

if one was able to track down the original tooling, the plastic injection mold, then parts could be made once again.

I really doubt a consumer-level 3D printed target would take the abuse it will get, but it will be interesting to find out.

The same process is used for the available Goldeneye Satellite dish, rollover buttons, and 3d printed flipper bats in which I have put up hundreds of games on and still going strong.

These would not be home 3d printed rather laser sintered fused nylon that is solid not hollow like home printed parts. So for the traditionalist that want that look of how the game was released this will be an option. Better than nothing and at the end of the day helping a pinhead that was ripped off as he paid a company to 3d scan and the quality was crap.

That's not consumer-level 3D printing, so we're in agreement.

sorry, my mis-understanding

I don't sell anything I can make on my 3d printer - it just handy for proof testing designs

This is a Classic Stern drop target assembly. Pinball Resource stocks all of the Stern drop target designs except for the the #6,#7#8, and #9 that are on Big Game. They cost $4.00 each US Funds. Shipping to Australia might be expensive, but they can be bought.

The Stern drops are at the top of the page.

EDIT:

My apologies. I missed the part about the lip. But if you can get the design you need you can file the tip off without any problem.

Grand lizard ramp and head

Quoted from PPS:

I have the prints for this, there is an 03-8230, 03-8230-1, and 03-8230-3 ... would have to figure out what game they went to ...

03-8230-3 is apparently used on Harley Davidson, Party Zone, Radical!, Gilligan's Island, Bugs Bunny along with Black Rose - which is what I'm hunting for it for.
