    Looking to buy some Bally Pop Bumper bases C-971-5 for a few restoration projects. Any idea if these are still available anywhere?

    Thank you. I was hoping to find them white in appearance and not yellowed by age.

    Unfortunately they only had one instock.

    Sorry. Those boogers are hard to find.

    Thanks, I managed to get a couple, now nil stock. Hopefully I can find some more. The project games I purchased have the entire pop bumper assemblies missing, along with many other thankfully more generic easier to find parts.

    How many more do you need?

    My other thought was to 3D print them yourself (or have someone do it for you), but I've not been able to find a model of one.

    So, do these go above or below the playfield (or how much of it/what part is visible to the player)?

    #12 4 months ago

    These go below the playfield. Only the top of the round portion is visible to the player.

    Well, if I had one in my hands I could model it and 3D print. I'm sure PETG would handle the part just fine.

    What do you think they'd cost to reproduce? If you want to give it a go, I could send you one when they arrive?

    Perhaps searching under the various part numbers at this link might help:

    Thanks for the suggestion Ken. I did try that, but unfortunately to no avail.

    #18 4 months ago

    I was going to get the aussie one and replicate it but all sold out, hopefully someone makes it available again.

    Looks like the holes for the lamp socket wires are a bit too small in inside diameter in your 3d printed one.

    #22 29 days ago

    It’s just the angle. Pin-gauged every hole. All center to center holes were measured on a ram optical. Sending one to a pinsider to try.
