Need a few parts for a Wico Big Top toy pinball machine. Anyone know if Wico is still in business or is there a distributor where common parts might be available

Wico has been out of business since around 2000.
What parts are you looking for?

Wico lives (lived) on as an IT/IS company by Max Wiczer's grandkids and grand nephews. He sold the amusement/gaming & vending machine parts business in '86. The new owners ran it into the ground in less than twenty years.

Max had a decent retirement as he passed away only about eight years ago at 97.

Ask Pinsider too-many-pins. He has a lot of em parts machines, and some ss parts machines

Just starting to look into the Wico Big Top and first notice both the front cabinet reset and ball life buttons are broke. If available I would buy the button only or the whole assembly, two of them

My father-in-law (he’s not on Pinside) has had that pin since new. He recently did some work on it. He said he got everything he needed from Pinball Resource.
