Truthfully, since it doesn't have any artwork that would need to be reproduced, that would be pretty easy to make yourself.

Yeah, what drsfmd said. I've made these before. Just be sure to use PETG or Lexan (polycarbonate). Acrylic won't hold up.

What they said.

Here are a few pictures of a clear plastic I recreated recently for an Atlantis where the tip broke off the original plastic. I didn't get a good picture of the plastic after I cleaned up the shape. Between the two rough pictures and the finished product I used a drum sander attachment to my drill gun to get the shape down to the proper outline. Then I sanded the edges of it with ever finer sandpaper. If you want to go to town you can use Novus or Mothers Mag Polish to really clean up the edges of this clear plastic.

On a side note of plastics. I took a set and soaked them in hydrogen peroxide the last few days with a $15 UV bulb over them and they are now nice and clear

I just got a laser cutter. I'll likely be making some. I just need to figure out the posts.

What did you end up doing about the posts? I've laser-cut the plastic. I could share the file if you still need it.

That's nice to offer.

On the Aztec you might as well make 20 of them damn things. One good ball smack and it will crack again.

Anyone found a fix for this other than keep replacing it?

As mentioned here above, if you make it out of polycarbonate, you shouldn’t have anymore future problems. I made the mistake of making mind from acrylic the first time, shattered after about 1 month. The polycarbonate has lasted years.

Thank you! Just picked up one myself.

Sweet. The Aztec I just picked up seems to have that one already replaced and the broken original was in the coinbox. Still need a right hand sling plastic for mine.

Anyone know if this company is reputable?

Are they out of Canada? Has the .com extension. I wouldn't mind a set of those myself.

France, it seems.

If you get a set and have an intact right sling, I'd buy it.

Would you be able to tell/show me where this plastic goes? I am stumped!

Isn’t it the left side guide of the spinner lane?

Yes, it goes under the plastic with art on it. Mine seems original, but ebay also has that one, so I'm guessing it is a common break point, as well.

sandman74 , yup Treybo69 is correct.

I was working on playfield touch up on mine last night. I thought I had replaced the playfield plastics but that was not the case. Surprised no one ever made a run of reproductions for this game.

Can you let me know how that works out. I'm just afraid the shipping cost could make it a pricey venture.

I found a post by SOS saying they do worldwide for 8 euros, so not bad. I always prefer original, so if anyone wants to sell me their right sling, I'll pay half what you have to pay for the new ones.

That's not bad at all.

My plastics with graphics are only slightly warped with no cracking yet. If I can't get an entire replacement set then I won't make the change until needed.
