I'm finally getting around to restoring a Williams Disk Jockey. I picked up a repro apron liner from Allentown, but I'm not sure how to go about recreating apron cards. Does anyone have access to Disk Jockey apron cards (unlikely) or can someone post some apron photos of Williams woodrails from this era so I can try to recreate my own?

Ideally, I'd love to see cards from games that have similar rules, the other "mini bingo" games Williams produced in the 50s--Four Corners, Hong Kong or Starlite--if cards for Disk Jockey itself can't be located.

Any help would be appreciated.

I would like to know what materials to use to recreate a Williams apron, like kind & weight of paper.
(Sorry didn't read your post carefully enough to see it was about the cards & not the apron itself!)

Yeah....I got the blue liner from Allentown, I'm just looking for instruction and scoring card examples.

There is one image on the ipdb for the instructions.

I can recreate a file, but I would need to know the right size.

Wow...great spot! I thought I looked there...not hard enough apparently. I will scour for the right hand side card, which I believe would be "payouts".

Can anyone provide a WMS woodrail card measurement for Inkochnito ?

Here are scans of original score and information cards as well as a replay adjustment card for Williams Disk Jockey.

Can you please provide the card size(s)?
Hard to recreate them without the right size....

Did you happen to get that gentlemans contact info? i picked up a couple aprons as well -one for my cue tee. His neighbour there had some repro flipper diamond plate protectors i meant to grab too but the things we remember driving home.

out of curiosity does that disk jockey employ impulse flippers and if so are you keeping them as is?

its nice to see some williams woodrails getting some love.

The score card and instruction cards are both 2" x 4". The replay adjustment card is 4.25" x 6".

Wouldn't you know it, I checked yesterday and my apron tray card got mangled on the trip back from Allentown. It survived enough to reproduce on my own, I think, if I can find someone local to print it. Just one more thing to do...

Disk Jockey does have impulse flippers. There's a helpful Pinside tutorial on here on how to change them over using Gottlieb flipper parts...however, being a bingo, with the extra ball tray mechanism under the playfield, there may not be enough room to get the new right hand side mechs installed properly. So it may have to stay impulse. I have one other project to clear off my plate first before I really tear into DJ...I may start a new thread dedicated to bringing it back to life.

Thanks for the sizes.
I've made a file for whoever needs it.
Please send me an email if you want a copy of the file.
I'll also post a copy on my website at the end of the month.
That way I only have to keep track of the one file on my website.

Thanks, Peter. I think you may have my email, but I'll PM you with it anyhow. We can mark this one as CASE CLOSED, I think.
