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 ...

did these ever get made? Need them for pool sharks, elvira,radical,gilligans island,Buggs bunny,transporter, black rose and all other games with the 6803 bally style backbox.

The -3 variant will work for all of the games but was meant for the WPC BB hinged varites but will work for all of them after you drill a couple holes for mounting screws.

PPS Rick the part number 03-8230-3 is the channel that the translite sits into on Black Rose and i believe 3 or 4 other machines with the same back box configuration. This part is NOWHERE to be found out in the wild, well not NOS or repro anyway. Any chance these will get remade in the near future??

Was literally just searching for this part (again) myself... for my Black Rose...

Mine has got a chunk missing in the middle, probably about 6mm wide and deep from the top edge where the translite nestles into it. I'd love to replace it with a new one but at this stage looks like i may have to do a Dodgy Brothers repair on it

Some numpty of a PO decided to drill friggin' holes in mine - can't figure out for what purpose. Regardless, it's ugly as sin, which is such a shame because the rest of the machine is great.

It happens The one i just picked up had a coin/game counter screwed to the backboard (through the ship plastic) on the upper right corner just below glass level and the usual coin return opening that looked like it had been attacked with a can opener

I can’t seem to find a demo man handle trigger anywhere. Don’t know if this can be printed.

Definitely looks printable - just need someone to build the design.

#424 2 years ago

If you loan me the part I can model it and supply a repro as a thanks

#425 2 years ago

I should have some 3D printed DM repro triggers lying around somewhere. Pm me if interested.

Design was built by a member of the Dutch Pinball Associaton (NFV).

The Dodgy Brothers, classic. The rest of the world will have no idea what we are talking about.

Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

Some people disagree with me on my position, but try and find a NOS Tron Legacy plastic ramp in 10 years.
Nobody cares right now, just like RS ramps 22+ years ago.
It really comes down to how serious a person is in this hobby, as NOS parts provide "trade fodder" for not only income but deals from brokers/dealers/owners/collectors, not just a private individual game repairs. That is the real benefit.
Many times this can be "overkill" except for the highly breakable "Achille Heel" parts.

10 years was optimistic. Try 2. Tron Legacy (both Pro and LE) ramps are unobtanium now and have been for some time.

Alot of Gottlieb sys80b ramps.

Heck just print up all of them

Didnt he just buy the copyright for the manuals? there are people printing Gottlieb ramps every now and then (Hollywood Heat for example) so cant be that bad....can it?

AFAIK - and I could be wrong, as I don't work for or with him - he has the COMPLETE licensing power for Premier/Gottlieb. He licensed out ROM images to John, but I understood he has everythingelse. Art, manuals, etc.

Just finished the Banzai Run ball lift for the backbox in 2 versions - reproduction and upgraded (reinforced around the ball).

Test unit has gone out to a pinsider that loaned me his part to replicate from.

Just letting people know if they need a unobtainable part that I have finished off another one and tested well and ready for those that need one.

This part is the Banzai Run Ball Lifter

Thanks to a Canadian Pinsider for trusting me and taking the risk to send me his part out of his game to the other side of the world.

The tested one is the upgraded, beefed up section version which proves the wiring passes through while being more stronger and hopefully will last a long long time.

These are available here at Shapeways at the moment and you can choose a different coloured version.

Drill your own. This is what I had to do several years ago, and of course, RIGHT AFTER I did it, they released the 'real' ones. For less money.

I used a step drill to do it and managed to not screw any of it up.

If you don't have your original this of course is an issue.

This target face seems impossible to find in any color, need 1 if someone has something that will work.

Bumping again I know of a bunch of people chasing the glass retainer 03-8230-3 for their Black Rose machines (also used on at least 4 other machines with the same head box configuration) Still absolutely ZERO of these to be found and most have chunks missing/damaged in general which makes even a good 2nd hand one just as hard to find. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE consider doing this one Rick!!!
With the upcoming release of repro Black Rose playfields from Peter @ Buthamburg this one particular item will be a major sticking point for those wanting to fully restore their machines

A part that is no longer available, is the carbon doughnut switch rings that were used
in the old woodrail style pinballs of the 1940's.
