    Is anyone making ribbon cables for WPC or WPC 95 games.

    It seems that everyone is out of either one or more of the necessary cables.

    I would like to buy complete sets at a fair price to refurbish the Aging cables in a lot of my games.

    Who is there to contact at this point?

    I know it's not hard to make cables I have made many in the past. But I'm getting old and lazy now.

    I guess I can order bulk ribbon cable and connectors and assemble them myself and test them for continuity. But if I was going to do that I guess I would order a couple hundred of each connector and just make up a bunch of cables and share them with the community at a fair price.

    But like I said I'm getting old and lazy LOL

    I make my own just so I can test them on PinballLife Anarchy PCB Ribbon Cable Tester. There is just something about 34 red LED's lighting up.

    It appears that Ed is out of cable right now, this sucks...

    IJ cable sets would be nice as well as ToM or MM etc.

    I need like 10 sets...

    I think I'll get the tester it would be nicer than fiddling with my meter lol

    Have you emailed Ed? He might build them upon request and only then update his website as being in-stock.

    Yes, he is out of cable for awhile.
    At least a couple weeks.

    So, no cable sets for IJ at a reasonable price?

    Ok, so no one has cables right now, Ed (GPE) might have something in the upcoming weeks.

    What are the exact parts, connectors and cabelling needed to make my own cables?
    And where to get these parts?
