I didnt see a club for this but wanted to start one for people looking for parts, repair and all.
we just got 2 of the games and Ive been looking for a few of the original mini basketballs.
Also those 50V cam motors have become hard to find or impossible to find.
I have located some original williams molds for all the shooter and basket molded parts that have all been out of stock.
post interest here and I will see if I can get PPS to run some parts for us.

Here is my cam motor work around.
12v dc 100 rpm gear drive motor I got off amazon. Like $16. Then machined the shaft extension and pressed on. Works good but I have not figured out how to get it to go on and off with game play. Hooked to 12v is always on. Factory motor is 50v AC

I picked one up last year.

Anyone have any idea his many of these they made? I gather it has to be less than 1000

I know some were released as Midway and some as Williams.

Anyone have any luck in getting the scratches out of the Hotshot enclosure? I know certain plastics can be flame polished but honestly the scares the heck out of me. Lol. Will a headlight restoration kit work?

I'd use an orbital buffer with Maguire's 105. It won't take-out deep scratches, but it should help a lot.

Something like this one:

Does anyone have a place to get some extra balls? I’d like to get some before I need them..I think they are 3.25 or 3.5 inches in diameter.

Put a wanted ad up on KLOV. That’s where I found mine. I bought all he had because these are tough to come by.
