11/21/18 Braided Wire


To respond to customers asking, I have researched and sourced the conductive braided wire used by a number of manufacturers on the bottom of the playfield. With many doing playfield swaps, having new braided wire is far easier than salvaging the old.


Part number is MAT-PF-BRAID and it is 0.20 per foot.

10/16/18 Repro Gottlieb® Spiderman Playfield Plastic Set


Gottlieb® Spiderman playfield plastics have been reproduced and arrived today. They look great!

The set is part number GTB-D19736+ and is $99.47 per set.


9/19/18 Keychains


Keychains. Keychains? While we usually try to keep to pinball parts, once in a while we deviate. Saw one of these with a pinball friend and thought it was cute and gave me an outlet for some “off spec” parts.


So, I made some pinball flipper keychains. These are made from various styles of 2” flippers by sawing off the flipper plastic slightly below the rubber ring groove and adding a 1” key ring to the mounting hole for the flipper. It takes a little time to clean up the cut and they vary a bit. These are “off spec” because of slight plastic color variations preventing us from making pairings. The print is ok. As I am making from off spec parts, supply may be limited as it would be silly for me to cut up perfectly good flippers to make cute keychains.


This is a great way to wear your “pinball badge” in public or to have a pinball themed keychain for your games. So far, I have set 2 part numbers for these (not trying to make a “project” out of this!):

KEYCHAIN1 is round top, printed flipper, white body.....$5.00 each

KEYCHAIN2 is raised letter, printed flipper, white body.....$5.00 each

There is no choice of right or left. Printing is usually blue. I am looking for a bag of flat top printed flippers that were off color, so I expect to add that as a 3rd variation KEYCHAIN3 $5.00 each.

9/19/18 Pinball Magazine


In an attempt to get wider distribution for PINBALL MAGAZINE, I have agreed to offer the magazine thru PBR.


As you may be aware, this is not treated as a magazine with a subscription, but each copy is sold independently.


The first issue we are distributing is issue #5. This issue contains a number of interesting articles heavily centered on Wayne Neyens, Gottlieb designer who just celebrated his 100th birthday.

-Gordon Hasse review of Wayne Neyens career.

-Wayne Neyen interview, review of all his designs, etc.

these first 2 articles comprise 232 pages!

-Co-workers and collectors views of Wayne Neyens (approx 40 pages)

-Interview with Steve Young on The Pinball Resource (12 pages)

-Article on Randy Peck’s Nu-Pike arcade (10 pages)

-Scott Danesi interview (Total Nuclear Annihilation design) (16 pages)

-Interview with Jack Danger (streaming TNA) (7 pages)

-Interview with Churchill Cabinets/Chicago Gaming (9 pages)

-Interview with Gary Stern (6 pages)

-Interview with Antionette Johnson (pinball personality)(5 pages)

-Interview with Michael Pupo (sound upgrade)(4 pages)

-Visit to Terra Techina (Chech museum) (2 pages)


Whew! Just typing all the titles wore me out! Most photos are color (some of early game photos were only B/W and some archival photos are B/W) but the book is real eye candy!


In any event, the magazine (more like a book, weighing 3 pounds is available here. Cost is $40 a copy. Issue is Priority mailable in a padded flat rate envelope...shipping PM in the US is 9.10 with postage and handling. European paper size 8-1/4” x 11-3/4” but still fits in padded bag. Price on magazine is net.


If I receive sufficient interest, I will offer available back issues as well. These have not been priced as of yet.


Part number is BK-PM5.....$40.00 net.

9/19/18 545 Lamps


I was offered a rare lamp by one of my customers. #545 are blinking wedge lamps made only by GE for Williams. Used in 3 games: Dirty Harry, No Good Gofers, and Twilight Zone. Original Wms part number was 24-8825. We have listed them on our lamp page as LAM0545...10.00 per box which is actually less than they used to cost “back in the day”. It was especially nice to find these as they were a GE only part and no one makes these any more. I looked many places to find remainders, etc and was always unsuccessful.


Steve

9/05/18 New Parts


Remember, it is the little details in the recipe that make the sauce so good....so here are a couple of little details that have been bugging me because they bug my customers....and when I do my own restoration, I get doubly bugged.


Escutcheon pins....the small nails used to hold flat ball guide rails to the wooden arch sticks on pinball playfields. Where to find? I have been looking for a long time. Well I stumbled on them looking for something else. Both listed are oval headed 304 stainless, so they look good and can be polished if desired.

HDW-PIN1 is a 3/8” long, 18 gage (0.048”) pin. This fits what I tested perfectly but I can see there might be a variation that needs to be a little fatter (see below). Cost is $1.00 for a pack of 10 pins.

HDW-PIN2 is a 3/8” long, 16 gage (0.063”) pin in case the hole is a bit larger. Cost is $1.90 for a pack of 10 pins. Suggest you have both on hand.


Ball guide wire....we often get requests for wire ball guides which are missing and there is no inventory and none to be found. Time to make. So, we send out longer ball guides and the customer then re-bends and trims length. I think it would be more better to just pick a 1 foot piece and make it easier. So...found some material that will work. It is 3/32” diameter 18-8 stainless steel with a matte finish. Looks pretty good as received but could be polished if desired. I have to buy in a roll and cut, so it will arrive with a slight bend to it. It is pretty tough material! Customer will need to straighten it a bit and then bend to desired form. A good item to carry in your toolbox.

MAT-BALLWIRE 3/32”x 12” 1.00 each piece. I cut it at 12-1/2 inches so you will get a full foot at least.

8/29/18 Flipper Buttons


Prompted by a customer question this week about an early 70s Williams flipper button that is not available, I decided to do some research on flipper buttons...got out the calipers, old catalogs and prints where available. The results are interesting.


The bottom line is that the Gottlieb A-3562 button that we manufacture will substite for a number of other Gottlieb and Williams buttons with just minor adjustments! The basic adjustment needed is the addition of electrical insulation for applications where the plastic button needed is being replaced by a metal button. Some other slight tweeking might be needed with switches.

Gottlieb characteristic: Spring tension for button was derived from the flipper switch link assembly thru A3562, then flipper switch blade tension.

Williams characteristic: Spring tension for button came from use of a spring. The Wms buttons tend to have an undercut under the button to accommodate the spring.

Common characteristics: 5/16” stem, 7/8” length from back of button. This is what allows interchangeability with attention paid to springs and electrical isolation as needed. Electrical isolation can be achieved by adding a piece of fishpaper under the switch if button acts directly on switch. If using with flipper button switch link assemblies, either insure that they have fishpaper or replace with GTB-A9360 and 9361 switches. If spring tension is needed beyond what can be achieved with adjustments and original switches, replace with GTB-B17838 switches.

8/07/18 Repro Gottlieb® Genie Playfield Plastic Set

6/28/18 455 blinking lights


This news item is not to sell something, just to make a record.


As I restore my personal collection of 1950’s games, I have cheerfully added blinking bulbs to each. Just merrily skipping down the lane. Oops! In looking at the various bills of material for the games I am doing, I casually notice that all (100% all!) the lamps are 44s. This is somewhat bothersome to me as I have tried to be accurate in my restores.


So what was the first useage of blinking lamps in Gottlieb® games? In looking at many bills of material for various games as part of answering customer questions, I have been taking notes with this question in mind. Got close enough to an answer, so I looked. Here is what I think is the story: first game design to use 455s looks to be game 211 (THORO-BRED) but first game released looks to be 214 (HAPPY CLOWN). Chronological game design and release dates were not always in sync.


So, there you have it....1965 is the magical year!

Steve


5/16/18 New Gottlieb® Spinner Decals


Here is a beginning, there will be more to follow. Have tried out a new suppler and I am pleased with quality and pricing. So....here we go:

GTB-A16116-D refacing decal for SURFER/SURF CHAMP


These are $4.00 per set (1 set needed per spinner). Screened on vinyl with mylar overcoat, so will be durable. These will also fit the replacement spinner BLY-A3460+ in case the spinner itself is missing.



4/26/18 LOCKS


Locks....locks....and more locks!


Since our supplier became unable to provide the “Pinball Resource Lock” that we have sold for 20+ years with the 1382 key, everyone, myself included, has been sad. I recognize how many customers have depended on us to continue to supply this lock style and key number. The substitute lock just isn’t up to the appearance and quality of the original.


The “Pinball Resource Lock” is coming back! I have gone thru different sources and have been able to place an order for this lock to be resupplied to us in both the 7/8” and 1-1/8” versions. I cannot believe (well, maybe I can)how much time has to be expended on such a simple item that used to be a phone call away and one day delivery. Whew!


The good news....price will remain the same.



Steve


01/31/18 LED Lamps


Well....the 21st Century has finally caught up with PBR....we are announcing a limited selection of LED lamps.


I have delayed supplying LED lamps until now in order that many of the issues with LEDs have been resolved. I have evaluated quite a number of samples. At this point, I am comfortable bringing a simple offering to my customers who have requested them. I emphasize the word “simple”, as the LED environment has very many variations of color, color temperature, dispersion, etc., etc.


I have partnered with Silverball Museum with their history of useage to bring in the following: (part number, price each lamp,description)


LED0044C $0.90ea LED 44 type lamp-clear $9.00Per Box

LED0044F $0.90ea LED 44 type lamp-frosted $9.00Per Box

LED0555C $0.90ea LED 555 type lamp-clear $9.00Per Box

LED0555F $0.90ea LED 555 type lamp-frosted $9.00Per Box


All lamps sold in packages of 10 and subject to our normal discounting at $100 order. We will be listening carefully to customer feedback.

12/29/17 New Fastener


It has been awhile since I wrote a news item. We have been busy re-making parts that we have re-made before. The ongoing changes in the vendor base as well as material challenges requires an ever increasing amount of time to re-do what should not have to be re-done. OK, off soapbox.


Today reporting on a new fastener availability.


Per customer request and our interest, I have remade the first washer head playfield screw. These were commonly used by Williams in the 50’s and into the 60’s. Size chosen to be #6 by 1-1/2” long phillips head. This seems to fill most of the requirements and will work for some Bally and Gottlieb applications as well. I had them nickel plated which may be a bit “upscale” from the original, but the expense of these special sizes limited my choice of how many varieties I could choose (slotted, phillips, length, all count as new items and cannot be combined for quantities). Other issues involve minimum orders (usually something like 25,000pc). This order was placed 6-14-17 and arrived (quoted 8-10 weeks) 12-27-17! (This is something like “Merry Christmas to me, here is the bill!”)


So here are the details:

Part number: HDW-WH-6X1.5

Description: Phil round washer head steel wood screw nickel 6 x 1-1/2

Price: 0.61 each


Hope these make your restoration pop!


Steve

10/11/17 Gottlieb® Countdown Repro Plastic Set


Thanks to the generosity of Sarah St. John in New Hampshire, we were loaned 2 sets of plastic for COUNTDOWN. We sorted thru the pieces and sent a good set off for reproduction. (Several weeks pass.) Boxes arrive....nice!


Here are the ordering details:

GTB-C18193+ shieldset-Countdown. $77.91


Enjoy! This will make a number of Countdown games look much better without the yellowed white and chipped plastic common with drop target games.


Steve

08/30/17 5" Bell Assembly – Updated


OK....now to finish the large bell story! Today, have received the parts to complete the large (5") bell picture. The bell shell (B-2091) arrived earlier this year and I promised to do the rest.


Now available GTB-B9359+ which is the bracket, coil, and plunger to ring this bell. This assy has been designed with flexibility to accommodate Gottlieb, Bally or Williams coils. The part number implies a Gottlieb A-5143 coil, but you may substitute another manufacturer's coils at the same cost.


So...here are some part numbers:


Gottlieb B-9359+ standard coil A-5143 24volt application


Williams B-9359+ substitute A2-23-750 24volt (Williams ref #B-5393)

A2-26-1300/1350 50volt


Bally use 50v Williams setup


Ordering details: GTB-B9359+ is $30.66 and specify coil if different than A5143.


Now....I am done with bells for awhile!


Steve



8/30/17 Drive Coil Housing and Coil Stop


Well....I never thought I would need to make them....but just received the stampings for Gottlieb A-4583. This is the small (A-1496 type coil) drive coil housing cover with the nutted coil stop A-4862 installed. I guess after all these years of pounding with missing and loose screws, enough have broken that we have exhausted our scrounging these up for customers.


This part will also replace A-4589 which had a similar stop that was staked in place. It can also be a substitute for A-17191.


This part is used in Small Step Switches and some Player Units. This part is 1-1/8” Wide -Gottlieb had multiple parts that all look the same but have different widths, please ensure the part you need is 1-1/8”.

So....new number GTB-A4583+ is available at $9.86.

6/9/17 Bally Bumper Plug


Another sticky little part bites the dust! We have had many requests for the little rubber plug bumper that Bally used in many assemblies to cushion a plunger returning to rest position. We always sent customers off to the local hardware store. With local hardware stores becoming extinct, I decided to go off in a quest to find this bumper for stock. Success.


Bally used several of these, two of them interchange. R-231-11 and -14 may exchange, so we have one part for both. R-231-11 was used in drop memory drop target banks, and credit knockers. R-231-14 was used in chime units and the ball grabber (Nip-It). You may find other useages in Bally mechanisms as I didn't do a thorough search.


Our part number is BLY-R231-11 for both applications; cost is $0.35 each. Now on the next one (working on replacements for washer head screws if everything works out).


Steve

4/27/17 Gottlieb® Repro Plastic Sets


Per the news item on the SCOREBOARD plastic sets, we just received newly produced plastics for JOKER, CORONATION and SHINDIG. The artwork was re-rendered using my samples and a variety of photos by Ryan Claytor. The engineering drawings were located for all the dimensional data from the Gottlieb Archives. And the plastics printed and laser cut. The results are outstanding. I have installed on my games...what a difference from the "bacon" that I had. They will make an equally stunning improvement on your games, too!


I have more sets planned based on the acceptance of this batch.


Here are the details:

JOKER part number PL044 price $75.00/set net (4 piece set)

CORONATION part number PL070 price $110.00/set net (6 piece set)

SHINDIG part number PL078 price $75.00/set net (2 piece set)


These are shipped with a protective layer to be peeled from top and bottom before install. Enjoy!


Steve

04/12/17 Credit Lens


Ya know, sometimes the simplest parts solution brings a smile to my face. Over the years we have had untold inquiries about a part that hardly ever shows up in any catalog, but is apparent when it is missing. Wondering what that is? Bally and WIlliams games from the 70's. Bottom arch. White. Round. Lights up......credit lens!


In the 70's both Bally and Williams (also Sonic) used a white plastic snap-in lens on the bottom arch (bowtie) above the left instruction card to indicate that you had credit. When it is there, you dont think about it. When it is missing, there is an empty hole begging to be filled.


Fixed. Found a substitute. Cheap. In stock. Dont know why I didnt think of/find it sooner. Hindsight is so 20/20!


Our part number WLL-3A7266, cost is 50 cents. Part is white and snaps into a 3/4" diameter hole. Fits Bally, Williams, Sonic.


Now off to the next (hopefully simple) problem.


Steve



04/4/17 5" Bell Assembly


As promised in the note regarding the 5" bell shell (B-2091+), the hardware arrived today to finish the assembly. Works perfectly...sounds just like it oughta! Since Gottlieb® evolved this part to use a A-5194 coil, that is how I built them. Usage will be mostly E/M so, no diode on the coil either.


Part number B-9579+

Price $52.59

Available from stock starting today. Listed on our Bell/Chime/Knocker Webpage listing the different needs for Solid State Premier games.

03/23/17 Old Type Pop Bumper Body


A long time in coming! For years we have had to make excuses when someone asked for old type pop bumper bodies for deco/daisey caps. "sorry, not available" "sorry, no used ones" "try the 8997 bodies, but they will change the appearance of the game a bit, sorry" "can you arrange the broken part away from the player?" "can you re-glue them?"


These were all the familiar responses....until today. Today, we announce GTB-25W.


Thanks to a customer in NJ who got his son interested as a project, then picked up that work and worked with a molder, samples back and forth, discussions with us and molder, corrections, and we have 25W bodies.


This type of body was used by all the manufacturers for pop bumpers from the beginning of pop bumpers (1948) until sunburst caps were introduced (1965).


Part number for ordering is GTB-25W; pricing is 3.50 each. Careful with ordering, as the dead bumper body is GTB-25A. Enjoy!

03/23/17 Shuffle Alley Pucks – Standard Size


Well....not a pinball part, but newsworthy anyway! Today we received a forgotten stash of standard sized shuffle alley pucks. These measure 2-3/4" diameter and were used on shuffle alleys BEFORE the introduction of 10-1/2" pins...so, first half of the 50's roughly. We have had constant inquiry about these and my response has always been something like "go make friends with your local machinist or machine shop". With the introduction of the large pins, the puck diameter changed to 2-15/16". Using the too-large pucks on the early machines makes them way too easy to beat....using a too-small puck on modern machines makes them too hard to play. The correct size is important.


Part number is PUCK-STD, cost is $16.00. Available in red or blue.


Steve

02/21/17 Saga of the 5" bell


Beginning in 1951, Gottlieb® used a 5" gong as one of the sound elements of their games. This sound became a classic woodrail and later sound (used for many years). Williams also used the same size.


We have had a string of inquiries over the years since we ran out of the stock of this bell from Premier days. The part looks easy enough...but no tooling to make. Finally put pen to paper and wrote a rather large check to make a new tool (and I thought injection molds were expensive). Bells ordered in October, due November, came in last week but look and sound the way they should.


Pricing and part numbers are as follows:


Gottlieb® GTB-B2091+ $29.89.
Williams reference was 1B-1178 which will ship as the same part.



12/20/16 Gottlieb® Score-Board Repro Plastic Set


Pinball Resource announces a new collaboration with Ryan Claytor to remake some sets of Gottlieb® playfield plastics from the 50's. The first set is SCORE BOARD. It is available now under the part number "PL114" at $75.00 for the set of 4 plastics. These plastics have been re-rendered by Ryan and then printed on PETG and laser cut. I am impressed with their quality. I have selected a few more titles (firstly driven by plastics I need for my games!) that will be announced when finished. The emphasis is on sets which have not been done anywhere previously. The production runs will be small and we will see how it goes considering the time needed to re-render artwork (from poor originals) and generate cutting files.

11/15/16 NICKEL PLATED SCREWS (AGAIN)


Courtesy of one of our PA customers, we were made aware of additional nickel plated screws that are needed for 1950's game restoration. We were able to purchase a much larger quantity than we had last time we cleaned out an old hardware store.


Good news on the nickel plated screw front. Based on further bulk purchases of the screws noted, I was able to get much improved prices, which lowers the selling price and the specials price. I bought several thousand of the most common longer screws and it appears that this supplier will keep inventory of the smaller/shorter screws...so I will probably be able to reorder as needed. They gave me the benefit of better pricing based on the overall order.



The following sizes are back in stock and on special:


for playfield posts

#6 x 1-1/2" round head wood screw (RHWS) $0.65 on special 0.52 HDW-6x1.5RHWS

#6 x 1-1/2" oval head wood screw (OHWS) $0.65 on special 0.52 HDW-6x1.5-OH



for playfield (screws to attach playfield to cabinet, 3 per side)..were not able to find 2-1/4" but found some 2"...so they will fill the holes and look nice, but not attach (more costly than the last time, but, hey, we cant always find an old hardware store!)

#8 x 2" OHWS $0.80 on special for 0.64 HDW-8x2-OH


for red shooter gage

#4 x 1/2 OHWS $0.75 on special 0.60 HDW-4X1/2OHWS

#4 x 3/4 OHWS $0.75 on special 0.60 HDW-4X3/4OHWS


for bumper caps

#4 x 3/8 RHWS $0.65 on special for 0.52 HDW-4x3/8RHWS

11/15/16 Relay Parts Webpage


With the increased popularity and new folks involved with electromechanical games for the first time, we have created new web page for relays. PBR has spent additional time trying to resolve part number conflicts and the like using our extensive documentation and knowledge and experience. Some conflicts got resolved, some conflicts created other questions which remain mysteries.


Due to the nature of how games were designed with different features and how they were produced for very short times, everything cannot be covered with these pages. We hope they are a start for the novice and helpful for experienced pinball people. Because there are alot of variations that may be game specific or time-frame specific, we encourage you to consult with us on variations that may not be covered in these pages.

9/20/16 Gotlieb® AS Relay Circuit Board Repalcement and Armature Rebuild Kit


We have had frequent requests for replacement parts for the Gottlieb® relay-sized stepper called an "AS relay". We have rejoiced when we found old stock as they have been difficult to supply. We are seeing more and more of these that show carbon tracking leading to burned boards or damaged metallization. We also are not finding many new discs in old stock any more.


Because of this, I enlisted the help of one of our circuit board folks to have new ones made. They arrived yesterday and I installed a set to do final checkout last night. They work!


The original board had rivetted eyelets for wire attachment. We have decided to leave them as metallized pads for direct wire attachment. I may install eyelets in the future. If and when we do this, we will update description, price, and photos.


Here are the details:


A8933 (artwork marking on board) is actually sold as GTB-A9016+.

A8934 (artwork marking on board) is actually sold as GTB-A9017+.

Price is 7.81 each. These are shown on our Gottlieb® Relay Webpage


To help make these fussy relays work, we have also recently put together a small kit that contains the armature spring, the drive finger and the drive finger spring to update the A14044 assembled armature which is no longer available. The kit is KT-GASRELAY and is 5.00. These are shown on our Gottlieb® Relay Webpage


These parts along with following the adjustment instructions provided by Gottlieb (and you MUST follow the order of adjustments!) will help achieve satisfactory performance of AS relays in many games.

8/24/16 Solution back in stock.


Many S/80 owners have been requesting the mirror silver backglass trim (top and sides). We ran out of old Gottlieb® stock. I found a supplier after searching awhile. It only took 3 requests for quotation starting in 2014.


The precision of the cut and the fact that there were 2 lengths and the "reliabilty" of this new vendor led me to decide to offer only a slightly longer length for the customer to trim upon installation.


Here are the details:

ORIGINAL numbers were A-19573 (length 25-9/32) and A-19574 (25-15/32).

NEW number A-19573-4 with a length of 26 inches exactly.

Pricing is $3.06 each. Furnished with a peel-off protective film.


Go System/80!

8/12/16 Replacement Williams BaseBall Bat Handle


For those Baseball game collectors, we now offer shinny new bat handles.


Part Number is WLL-2A2731 $32.00ea + Shipping



6/24/16 Bally Step Unit Springs


For as long as I can remember, we have had to dodge the question: "What do I do about my rusty, stretched out, missing, etc. springs on my Bally step units?"


After spending a significant amount of time researching what springs were used when, I have settled on a set of springs that I feel will fit the requirement....so, we are here to announce 3 new spring kits for Bally step units. These are the full sized units that have a large diameter plastic step gear.


KT-BSTEP-01 is a kit of 4 springs for single step resetting step units. 2 coils on unit, unit steps down once per pulse of reset coil. This is typically a bonus unit or game counter. Price is $6.69 per kit of 4 springs. Kit contains SP100-110, -113, -120 and SP370.


KT-BSTEP-02 is a kit of 3 springs for fully resetting step units. 2 coils on unit, unit completely resets with one pulse of reset coil. This is typically a coin unit or a ball/player unit on a multi-player game. Price is $5.19 per kit of 3 springs. Kit contains SP100-113, -120, SP370.


KT-BSTEP-03 is a kit of 1 spring for continuous step units. 1 coil on unit. Does not reset. This is typically a match unit. Price is $1.65 per kit of 1 spring. Kit contains SP100-120.


All springs are also individually available for sale. All springs were made here in the U.S.A. by the same manufacturer that originally made them for Bally. Can't get any better than that...they are even color coded as per the original.


Have fun (with your Bally's)!

5/26/16 Shuffle Alley Reinforcing Ring


It just goes to show that you can teach an old (older by the day) dog (me) new tricks. One of our customers asked for this part. After some head scratching and some staring at the Williams drawings, the light bulb came on. He was asking for a reinforcing ring that would prevent the shuffle alley pin studs from splitting when they are attached with the screws from the pin hanger. Turns out, Williams did have such a part, we had some. We went to our normal spring vendor and asked for some. Working from a sample, they have been made. Here are the particulars:


part number WLL-12-6357 "reinforcing clip" This part slides on (tightly) to the top mounting stud before starting to insert the screw. It fits only the top stud as the other is too short. So, it fits the pin number WLL-31-1445.1 only. Use is one clip per pin, so 10 for a full set. Also, it does not fit the similar stud on the pin used for Chicago Coin/Bally/Midway. Since today's pins are a bit stiffer than the older ones, this should help avoid splitting.


Presto! An old dog now has a new trick!


This part is listed with our other Shuffle Alley / Bowling Alley parts.

2/3/16 Gottlieb® Close Encounters of the Third Kind Plastic Set


Today, Pinball Resource announces the reproduction plastic set for Gottlieb's® Close Encounters of the Third Kind. This is the second plastic set made using the original drawings, films and color specifications from the Gottlieb® factory. This is significant in the following ways:

--use of original films is faster (=costs less therefore lower selling price)

--use of original films eliminates any corrections or guesswork involved with scanning

--use of original color specs eliminates any guesswork due to fading, damaged originals, etc

All plastics are screened on PETG and laser cut, protective film on front and back to be removed at the time of installation.


PLASTIC SET is GTB-18395+ $76.53



10/06/15 MAT-SHIELD


Actively restoring games, I am finding necessary items that are a pain to fabricate or find. Here is one: Gottlieb® and others used flat nickel plated shiny metal shields over top of playfield posts to create lanes....before plastic rollover guides came into use. They made an annoyingly large number of them of differing lengths. On a game, they are rusty and dont clean up well or are dented, or both.


Sooo....I came up with a solution: We have had made an 8" strip of high polished stainless steel with each end punched and rounded. Width is 5/8". The idea here is to make it long enough that it would serve to make 1 long or 2 shorter shields. The customer would cut, round, and drill the lengths desired but one end is ready to use alreasy. The idea came to me while I was restoring a Gottlieb® GREEN PASTURES...game has 8 shields from 6 different lengths on this single game....no way would we be able to have all the lengths pre-prepared and be able to reference them and get them all done in enough quantity to keep the lid on costs! Anyhow, here are the specifics:


-Part number: MAT-SHIELD-01 8" length center-to-center of holes (8-9/16" overall), flat

-High polish one side, protective covering to be removed.
-Thickness 0.042 laser cut

-Hole in each end #18 drilll to print...ends rounded.


MAT-SHIELD-01 $6.66 each

8/24/15 Gottlieb® Wood Replacement Lockdown Bars


As hinted when we announced the wooden leg production, we have successfully produced the two different single player wood lockdown bars used by Gottlieb® starting after WWII (the bars up to WWII and shortly, maybe, thereafter had mitred corners...cut at a 45 degree angle). These bars start with the first straight cut rails and run thru the end of wood rail games in 1960 with single player cabinets.


There are 2 styles that appear the same from the player's perspective but are different in how they fit the cabinet. The 2 styles are NOT interchangeable...they either wobble or will not fit. They are as follows:


GTB-SA19 part number. This lockdown has a 1/4" wood rib that fits a 1/4" slot in the top edge of the cabinet front. The carriage bolts are mounted to 2 separate mounting plates screwed to the underside of the bar. This bar was generally used from 1947 to 1954.


GTB-D1008 part number. This lockdown has a sheet metal channel running the entire length of the underside of the bar. This fits a much thinner slot in the top of the cabinet front. This bar was used from 1954 thru to 1960.


Here are the technical details. Maple. Ready for finish sanding, any staining, and finish desired. Complete with 2 carriage bolts and 2 wing nuts. The bar is shipped assembled. You will likely disassemble to complete the finishing work. This bar has taken 2 vendors plus my personal shop to complete. There are 18 operatons alone to make the wooden part of the bar; add to that the operations to fabricate the mounting plates/channel and then to assemble the bar, and you see why this is the first production we have been able to do since the 1980's. Most of the wood shops we have approached have declined to even quote the part.


Pricing for each bar is $95.00


We hope you enjoy our efforts to make a complicated part that is often missing from Gottlieb® wood rail games.



7/29/15 Gottlieb® System 3 Bumper Caps


We have located and resurrected the mold for the System/3 Gottlieb® bumper cap 26635 and have produced the cap in transparent yellow and clear (no color). This cap was used in 4 colors: clear, transparent red, blue and yellow. All are available now under this part number (specify color wanted) at $3.00 each.

6/5/15 Bally Step-Up Plunger and Collar


Now available Bally Step Up Plunger S496-100 and Collar C342.


Step-Up Plunger BLY-S496-100 $2.24ea
Step-Up Collar BLY-C342+ $2.59ea

A picture of the assembly, collar installed on the plunger.

After several false starts, we have a suitable suppler for wooden pinball machine legs! We have tried to get them made only to find unacceptable costs and several shops simply "no-quoted" the job due to expense of wood. These came out very nice and I hope this supplier can make other wooden parts for us.


So...available now are wooden legs with the following specs:

31" overall

furniture grade maple, solid, not laminated

unfinished, sanded but ready for any stain or finish desired

drilled for all hardware, but no hardware is included

cross section dimensions 1-5/8" thick x 2-1/8" width

mounting bolts on 2-1/4" center

dimensions match Gottlieb® 40's thru end of use in 50's


Part number is LEG-31WOOD, price is $31.25 per leg (making a set $125.).


Leg insert for the leg leveler, the leg leveler, the anti-split binding post, legbolts for wood legs and washers for same are all available in stock – See our LEG webpage for details


Go woodrails!

The story of GTB-986.


Once upon a time, when Gottlieb® first introduced drop targets, they used a funny "abbreviated" plug bumper for the trigger arms to reset against. The design was okay but over time the rubber got a groove worn into it, then fell out or was lost and the arm then reset too high. This caused the bottom of the drop targets to be over-stressed and then the lip broke off and the targets reset against the bottom of the playfield glass and would not drop correctly. We never found the source of the bumpers, cost to make a mold too high, etc., etc.


Fast forward to 2015 and one of our customers, Larry Dale in Washington state (obviously a person with too much time on his hands!) got curious, did some research and came upon several candidates. He was good enough to forward that information to me. I researched the leads and ordered samples, and bingo! we found the correct original bumper.


I have ordered stock, it has arrived. It is stocked here as GTB-986 and is priced at 0.30 each.


(happy) end of story.


Steve

Bless old hardware stores! One of our customers, with his sharp eyes and a quick phone has been able to locate the following old Nickel plated screws that our customers have been asking for to complete their 50's and 60's restorations. Here is what is here now and a few more sizes may also be located an obtained:


#6 x 1/2" round head wood screw (rebound bracket, wood arch) price $0.30ea


#6 x 1/2" oval head wood screw (rebound gate, wood arch) price $0.30ea


Stock is not unlimited, so if you see a need for these now or anticipate needing these, it would be good to stock up. We will see what gets dug out of the store's basement. It is fun seeing all the old boxes...some which predate selling in 100's ad they are marked "1 gross". Enjoy....I know some of these are going onto my collection of games.

12/8/14 Gottlieb® Spirit Plastic Set and Spinning Disc


Today, Pinball Resource announces the reproduction plastic set and replacement disc for Gottlieb's® SPIRIT. This is a first of a kind project using the original drawings, films and color specifications from the Gottlieb® factory. This is significant in the following ways:

--use of original films is faster (=costs less therefore lower selling price)

--use of original films eliminates any corrections or guesswork involved with scanning

--use of original color specs eliminates any guesswork due to fading, damaged originals, etc

All plastics are screened on PETG and laser cut, protective film on front and back to be removed at the time of installation.


Here are the part numbers and details:

PLASTIC SET is GTB-22162-3+. The originals we sold were sold under 2 individual part numbers...22162 and 22163. It looks like they were separated by Gottlieb® after printing into the 2 part numbers as the layouts did not exactly follow the color scheme....a puzzle, but fact. We have combined the 2 sets into one part number, since there is no scheme to why one would buy "half" of a set...Spirit is one set. Selling price is $157.60.


MOTOR DISC is GTB-22204+. We were happy to find drawings and film for this backbox animation disc as we have never seen any samples outside of the game; there was no stock at the factory when it closed. Selling price is $41.35.


We hope that collectors of this game around the world enjoy these plastics. I think they came out great and I look forward to making additional games' plastics using more of the original films we have in the archive.


Steve




10/24/14 Opaque Red Flipper Buttons



Beginning in the late 1970's, Bally began using an opaque brick red color flipper button and matching housing. We have had many requests for these. They have been available in very small quantities as old stock only. As a result, the use of the transparent red button and a white housing as used by Gottlieb® was the only solution.


By working some molding tricks, we have been able to remake the buttons in the original colors.

Available again are the following parts;


BLY-C904R opaque brick red button housing PBR price $1.80ea

BLY-C905R opaque brick red button PBR price $2.03ea


These parts will allow collectors to preserve the original appearance of their Bally games.


These are listed on our Button webpage

10/8/14 Gottlieb® Archive Parts


We have been busy sorting the Gottlieb® Archive parts we got recently. Customers have been enjoying purchasing the NOS Playfields, NOS Translites, NOS Manuals/Schematics, etc.., We just used a piece of the original artwork / film to make the Haunted House Webbed Playfield Cover, see below.

To answer customers question of “What other parts did you get”, we have put together a partial list by game name of some of the Gottlieb
® Archive Parts that are now available and have not been previously listed.

10/7/14 Gottlieb® Haunted House Webbed Lower Playboard Cover Reproed using original Artwork / Films.


Yesterday we posted to our Haunted House web page, the webbed lower playfield cover (GTB-21226+) as a new Pinball Resource product. Besides being a nice part, it represents the first part we have reproduced using the original films that we acquired with the delivery of the Gottlieb® Archive parts. While most of the paper and parts items that came in have been filed in a retrievable manner, we have only scratched the surface on the artwork files/negatives/films that arrived.


There are many benefits to using the original film files: ease of use, specification of exact original colors, avoidance of scanning difficulties, etc. This product we used to serve as a pipecleaner for what we hope are many projects to come; the films are good, the vendor can utilize them and the product is outstanding. A win-win-win situation.


The webbed playfield cover GTB-21226+ is screened on 0.080 polycarbonate per the original print and has a factory scratch cover on the back, a vendor applied scratch cover on the artwork side and is $28.92 each. We hope this part will enhance your enjoyment of this historic game!



10/2/14 Twin Star Rollover Button – Now available in Opaque Red


We have remade the Twin Star Rollover Button in Opaque Red. This is useful for collectors who are changing their E/M games over to LED lamps and for game builders/designers to allow a classic feature to be used on new games using LEDS lights. The Opaque Red limits the amount of light that passes through the button.

Part number is GTB-D11966LR and can be seen on our Rollover Button Webpage.



6/16/14 Replacement Theatre Of Magic Motor


Today we introduced a replacement motor for Theatre of Magic (part number 14-8018+). Using the original motor, we have re-engineered this motor into Multi Products hardware. This has the following features:

-current design

-serviceable (old motor manufacturer is out of business)

-pricing is a fraction of what this motor cost when it was available new (Williams 1995 price was 376.30)...our list is $230. ($207 after discount)


This motor has been carefully tested in actual game application.


We hope this motor keeps many of these games doing what they are supposed to do: providing fun!

Update 6/9/14 Announcement of importance to Gottlieb® pinball collectors, restorers, and historians.


On Thursday my crew plus a professional moving crew moved into PBR storage the bulk of the remaining Gottlieb® archives, bringing most everything Gottlieb® back under one roof. Let me explain.


When Premier Technology was closed and dispersed there were a number of major pieces:

-already built GAMES (sold by Gottlieb® Development)

-PARTS:

-bulk parts were auctioned in Chicago in 1995 along with other assets of production tooling

-replacement parts were packed up and shipped to Mondial Distributing in Springfield, NJ to be made available for replacement needs...these parts ended up here at PBR several years later

-DOCUMENTATION was retained by Gottlieb® Development and shipped to their headquarters in Pelham, NY. Over the years, Gottlieb® has been generous with the access to this material as we needed information for re-making parts....but because it was in "storage conditions" the bulk of it was not really accessable (and we didnt know how extensive it was until relatively recently)

-PARTS (again)...because any move of this complexity and magnitude is imperfect, some parts remained mixed with what went to Pelham and when things like the playboards came here, we were asked to return for their archive one playfield of each title before we were able to sell the remaining playboards.

-TOOL RECORDS (from late 40s) and the bills of material (for mid 80s and up) were sent to us when Premier was dispersed. We have had this and used this since.


So...what has arrived here is the documentation and the remaining parts!....and the sorting and sleuthing begins...here is how I see it unfolding:

-the playfields are inventoried and will be offered for sale coincident with this news announcement.

-the parts will be inventoried and put onto the shelf as routine business...this will happen over the next few weeks...at this writing we do not know what the inventory is but a quick look over the boxes indicates mostly mechanical parts

-the documentation sorting has begun with me working nights and weekends to assemble a workable retrieval system of a massive amount of information which includes (at the time of this writing): original schematics and manuals with production notes, variations for individual markets, problems discovered in production/operation, bills of material, factory photos of the games, their inside details, artwork films, etc. Pretty exciting stuff! It will take a major effort over time to understand and relate all the information. Gottlieb® ran an impeccably well documented and controlled manufacturing operation...they recorded everything important to control production and saved it. The documentation begins with the first game after World War II...so this an extensive history. So far, I see only a few unexplained gaps where I fear files have been lost in the several moves that this material has had. Stay tuned, as they say, for more details.


We have access to the bills of material already (WWII to end of System/1). This will allow questions to be answered that are not documented in any of the parts catalogs. This "immediate availability" is a bit of an oversimplification....all this material up to the mid-late 80s is hardcopy....not in any information retrieval system, hardcopy....filing cabinets, folders, rolls of paper, bankers boxes of files, etc.

Update 4/8/14


Over the past year and a half, we have been busy with recovering the hot stamping activity that was once done by our friend and associate Donal Murphy before his untimely death. This has been accomplished and we have added quite a few new designs and products that has only planned at the time he left us. Thanks for your support and patience!


We are now turning our attention to resuming the reproduction of new titles of playfield plastics. A week ago or so, we released the lower plastic set for BLACK HOLE (p/n GTB-21304+ $36.80). Today we are releasing the set for JET/SUPER SPIN (p/n GTB-C16967+ $63.22). As time permits, we plan to keep the new titles coming. Your "votes" will help us choose the next projects. Thanks and enjoy!

They're baaaaack! 12/11/13


It has taken forever, but the cigarette holders that were ordered in August 2012 (!) have finally arrived....tooling issues, plating issues, and another long supplier passing away all contributed to the delay.


We have BACK in stock GTB-A3889+ for the curved rail games cigarette holders ($9.46).


We have NEW in stock GTB-A3623+ for flat rail games cigarette holders ($9.37). We made the flat rail style both for all the Gottlieb® multi-player cabinets as well as for a number of customers asking for this part for baseball game restorations.


Both have a centerline hole spacing of 3.50" and are beautiful in bright nickel plate.

11/11/13 – We have recently introduced several much needed parts to assist pinball restorations:


1. Williams coin mechanism locking plate WLL-1A4253. While this sounds like a silly part, it is quite necessary when trying to put coin acceptors back into Williams games (1966-mid 80's). Coin mechs were commonly removed by operators attempting to prevent home sale games returning to street useage (competition).


2. With the help of Mike Vitale, a long-awaited part is emerging into the marketplace: the animation pool balls for Bank-a-Ball and Flipper Pool. Part number is GTB-B8720. Mike has finished the 1-8 balls in faithful colors; since the 9-15 balls require a painted stripe, they are taking a bit longer before they become available. Replacement ball is supplied with the attachment rivets needed.

10/28/13 – Williams E/M Score Motors


After repairing a number of mid-70's Williams score motor gearboxes and after having had a number of inquiries, we made a batch of new motors. This is motor #14A7883. Priced at $90.00 it is a less costly remedy than the repair charge plus worn parts.



10/28/13 – Gottlieb® E/M Siderails Back in Stock


Finally back in stock are the mid-60's to early 70's Gottlieb® stainless steel side rails. Part number is "GTB-D8159*set". This set covers June 1964 (Bonanza) to 1969 ± (cabinets #SS5 and SL5). Interestlngly, unless you actually got out a set of prints and calipers, you wouldn't realize (as we didn't either) that the flipper buttons are not in the same place....the RHS button is lower than the LHS button. I believe this was to accommodate the flipper button lever on the inside of the cabinet. When the flipper switch was moved from the playfield to the inside of the cabinet directly behind the button, the hole moved. To ascertain which rail you need, measure from the bottom of the flipper button hole to the bottom edge of the rail...if your RHS buton is lower, then this set of rails is correct for your game. The 70's rails, which are out of stock, will be here before long. These have the buttons equally spaced right/left.





10/08/13 – Cream White 31” Legs

We encountered a batch of steel when making the last batch of 31" chrome legs that did not give an acceptable plated surface......what to do? We decided to make a test batch of cream white 31" legs to salvage the batch. These legs were used in the mid to end 1950's by Gottlieb®. There were 3 "color schemes" that were used in this timeframe...chrome, cream white and red...the legs matched the metal front door color. These are power coated and look great. Due to the circumstances, pricing is same as the chrome 31" leg. We hope you enjoy them! Part number is LEG-31W.

10/03/13 – Today we have updated our Flipper Rebuild Kits webpages


Today we have updated our flipper rebuild kits webpages. Here is a summary of the changes:


- Enhanced mini kits to have flipper bushings previously ordered separately.


- Added 2 new full and their partial kits to the family of Williams kits. These kits cover the late 50's thru the late 60's where kits were not available previously. To make room for these kits in numbering, the old KT-WFLIP-01 and 01M have been renumbered to -04 and 04M. The new kits are -02/2M and -03/3M. Please watch carefully the beginning and end games that are referenced, they sometimes overlap...following the production listing doesn't always provide the correct sequence. There is no -01/01M kit at present. We are trying to assemble one and have run into too many questions to be certain of what hardware and what range of games is appropriate.


- Added FA605 spring washers to many kits.


- Created new webpages to detail kit components and alternative/additional parts to facilitate customers wanting to purchase either just that individual part, or to allow for customers to buy extra of a particular part. There are so many variations of flipper hardware used for games that the kits can only serve as a beginning base from which you can build. Things such as multiple flippers needing flipper enablement switches, lane change switches, etc. all are done outside the kit environment.


- Created part numbers for plunger and link assemblies for several of the kits where individual purchase would have required plunger, pin and link to be specified separately with an assembly instruction.

We are in the sad position to announce the death of Donal Murphy in Chicago. His wife called me Saturday morning to tell me he had died in an accident at his farm south of Chicago on Friday night (October 26). We are all shocked to say the least. In what I am writing here, I am searching for the right words.

The Pinball Community has lost a very important contributor; he was a friend, associate, partner, fellow collector to more pinball people than I even am aware of.


Donal was a quiet leader and an inspiration to me personally in many of our reproduction parts for Gottlieb®. I will miss this greatly. His connections and reputation in the Pinball Industry were the entry ticket to being able to get our foot into the door with many suppliers to start/restart many parts

into production.


In addition to this he was an invaluable asset in moving parts between operations and in the operation of a significant portion of the hot stamped products we offer. This will be missed by all of us as we work to move the missing operations to our building in Poughkeepsie.

UPDATE 1/24/13:
It has been several months since the untimely death of Donal Murphy. I thought it time to provide an update of the progress we have made in restarting the hot stamping process and product here in Poughkeepsie.

We have finished an expansion of our floorspace to allow rearrangement of equipment, installation space for additional equipment and storage of unstamped raw product. This was finished while we wrestled with the Christmas rush and didn't have lots of time to devote to stampng.

We have received from Chicago about 99% of the hot stamping dies. There are a few missing dies that we are still looking for (and we found some that we don't know their usage..see the unknown cap we have posted here: no one has made any suggestions as of yet!).

We have restarted the majority of Gottlieb® drop targets with no issues. We don't have a lot of black targets, so these will be stragglers until more raw stock arrives here. We have tested many of the Bally designs and have encountered no difficulties. We await stock to restart stamping.

Today (1-23-13) we tested successfully red sunburst 10 w/l caps. No large stock here yet, but no issues. We are in the process of redesigning and making stamping fixtures for 2" flippers, so these should move forward shortly (all flavors).

Overall, I am pleased with the quality of the stamping and look forward to returning to stock the items we all miss. Thanks for your patience and good wishes that have been extended. We appreciate them!

Steve

UPDATE 3/26/13
We would like to thank our customers for their understanding for availability of hot stamped products. We have been very busy replenishing the items that we have tooling for....this has involved making support fixturing for the new process. Besides making the process more efficient, I feel we have achieved better print quality and consistency.

We have been successful in making all or most of the following
  Bally sunburst and snap-in caps
  Bally drop targets
  Gottlieb® drop targets
  classic Stern caps and drop targets
  daisey/deco cap products for Gottlieb®/Bally/Williams/etc.
  various other products (round top flippers, 
  Black Knight caps, Gottlieb® shooter gage, etc)

We are working to get remaining dies/fixtures for the 
following (probably in priority order)
  Gottlieb® flat top flippers
  Bally/Williams raised letter flippers
  classic Stern 'S' and dotted S box drop targets
  Gottlieb® snap in caps
  Gottlieb® flanged bumper bodies (requires entire 
 stamping machine to be moved here)

Steve

UPDATE 4/9/13
We have been busy debugging new stamping fixtures and have made a good deal of progress in the past several weeks. Here are the highlights:

GOTTLIEB®
The snap in cap fixture has been made and fine tuned. We have started stamping the most needed designs listed below:
A10998B and R
A11426B and R
A11826B and R
A15200B and R
A13176B and R
A13859B and R
A15915B and R
A15745
Black Hole
Haunted House
Alien Star
-The rest of the designs need time to run, there should be no technical difficulties.

BALLY/WILLIAMS
The raised letter flipper fixture has been made and fine tuned. Since we are short of one side, we used all remaining unprinted flippers to make the blue and black versions. So:
C609SET is OUT of STOCK. If you order the unprinted, we will substitute the blue.
C609SET-B (blue) is done
C609SET-X (black) is done
We know that there is stock that has to be located in Chicago and shipped in to provide the missing parts, both were run in even quanitities not so long ago. We just have to find them in Don's storage.

Steve

UPDATE 6/21/13

Since the last update, we have continued to make great strides in repopping most of our hot stamped product...at this time it is probably easiest to tell you the remaining problems rather than to rant on about what is done. We also have discovered a number of unusual/unknown patterns that we will experiment with when we are able to tie up the loose ends.



Here are the problems:

Gottlieb® 63A ball shooter cover...waiting on parts to be molded.

Gottlieb® flanged bodies...waiting on stamping machine modifications. Dies and nest are here and we need to do some toolroom work to modify stamper. Hope this will happen in the next few weeks.

Stern drop targets...there are a number of missing dies (which must all be together somewhere in the Chicagoland area in some place that we have failed to look) : slash S, dotted S box, 1 2 3 4 5 (7 patterns total).

Williams caps...several missing dies (see above)...100 diamond, 100 squiggl, JET and W logo.

For any of the missing caps...there are some odds and ends in some colors as well as some NOS pieces in my personal stock to help out a few applications....please ask.

As always, "thanks" to all our customers who have been so patient and understanding during this process.

Steve

UPDATE 7/17/13
During the July 4th shutdown week, we were able to stamp the Gottlieb® flanged bumper bodies, thus returning them to stock status. We are very happy with the print quality we were able to achieve and believe you will be as well....thanks for your patience. I think we printed and bagged nearly 800 bodies in that week.

The following designs and colors were stocked: (print color on white body unless noted)
A10436 blue, green, purple, red, yellow
A13904 blue, red, yellow
A13905 blue, green, purple, red, yellow
black on red body, black on yellow body
A15980 red , black

The die for Pink Panther is not useable, a new die is being pursued. It is our intention to make this design as well.

Now we will make a last ditch effort to locate the missing few design dies (see last update) before commissioning replacements.

Steve

UPDATE 7/26/13

We have successfully printed caps for Caveman and a new die arrived today for the 20577 design used on Pink Panther pop bumper bodies....both are available for ordering. Neither design was possible before.



We have officially ordered the 11 dies mentioned in other updates as missing. They will start rolling in per a priority we established with the die makers...first the Stern lightning bolt S, then 12345 for Flight 2000, then a couple of sunburst cap dies: JET and 100 squigl, then the remainder as they make them to bring us to completion.

UPDATE 8/19/13:

It figures! Having made a build order for the missing dies, they have been found!

Starting today, we will begin filling in the stamped product that was waiting for these dies to become available. As of this writing, we have completed the classic Stern lightning bolt S and the dotted S box drop targets. We will next do the High Speed 'W' logo, then sunburst JET and Squiggle 100, followed by the remaining few designs listed in the older updates posted here.

This will bring us full circle to completeness for availabilty (actually a bit more than complete as we have added caps for Caveman and the bumper body for Pink Panther which had not been available). Thank you for your patience and understanding during our period of recovery.

Now, we will entertain the collecting community's suggestions for designs that haven't been tackled before.

Steve

UPDATE 8/27/13

With the receipt and running of the missing hot stamps, I am ready to declare victory. We have returned all hot stamped designs and products to stock and beyond:
-much deeper stock positions for most items
-cleaner, more uniform stamping using improved machinery, fixturing, and process control
-ability to do designs not previously offered for technical reasons
-CAVEMAN caps
-PINK PANTHER bumper bodies
-Bally printed mushroom bumper caps (started, but not quite wrapped up yet...designs will show on website as available)

There are a few items in short supply, but this is due to arrival/delay of certain stamping stock and is a normal course of business.

Thanks for your support and understanding during these months of recovery. This will be the last hot stamping update that I expect to write in this series.

Steve

07/18/13 – First Time Repro : Gottlieb® Shoulder Screws


Driven by customer requests, we have made the Shoulder Screws used in Gottlieb® 70's E/M games, A1058 and A1059.


GTB-A1058 $2.60ea

GTB-A1059 $2.68ea

If you need a new nut, HDW-6-32NUT $0.10ea

We are in the process of assembling some new kits to rebuild pop/jet bumpers. Three are ready to go. These provide a convenient method to get all the motive parts in one kit as well as a way to utilize improved design parts in this critical application. You know, "pop bumpers have to pop!". The Williams kit provides rebuild capability that was not previously possible due to the limitation on parts availability. Additional kits are planned.


KT-GPOP-01 For Gottlieb® AC type pop bumper applications. This kit is applicable with the replaceable stop starting late 1957 but can be used earlier by either installing the replaceable stop in original swaged stop bracket or saving the stop for use elsewhere and not using it as part of the kit. Parts include plunger, updated armatures, replaceable coil stop, spring, sleeve, elastic stop nuts for the rod/ring and repacement screws for the retainer. Some early applications may have non-removable coil sleeves. Steel armature supplied is newer "folded" design which upgrades flat style; application may dictate flipping armature "up" to clear mounting bracket. Very late AC pop bumpers have 10-32 style coil stop which can be replaced with earlier style in this kit by centering carefully. Kit price is $9.16.


KT-GPOP-02 For Gottlieb® DC type pop bumper applications. This kit is applicable with the beginning of DC (no shading ring, solid steel stop) pop bumpers in the the late 1970's thru the end of Gottlieb® production. Parts are same as KT-GPOP-01 without the replaceable coil stop (and all the notes). Kit price is $5.49.


KT-WPOP-01 For Williams AC "keyhole style" jet bumper applications. Replacing parts in this style pop bumper has always been parts limited due to the special armatures and plunger design. These armatures are identified by their signature "keyhole" cutouts for attaching to the plunger. By redesigning the plunger, we have been able to utilize the Gottlieb® bakelite and metal armatures with this new plunger to give new life to these tired assemblies. Applicability starts mid 1950's (after carbon ring design) up to the first DC jet bumpers with Granada/Spanish Eyes. Kit includes new design plunger (only available in this kit), bakelite and metal armatures, spring, sleeve, elastic stop nuts for the rod/ring and replacement screws for the retainer. Kit price is $5.92.



KT-WPOP-02 For Williams AC/DC standard pop bumper rebuilds. Kit price is $5.40.

them to the pinball community. These are all reproduction glasses..

generally 1 glass per title was all we started with. Some of the titles

we have are out of stock with the folks who originally produced the glass.

07/28/11 – Gottlieb® Devils Dare -Hot Stamped Drop Targets Now Available!



03/09/11 – New Bumper Cap Available!

Stern High Hand Bumper Cap , Yellow Sunburst with a Red Heart now offered $6.00ea

We have over 1,000 variations of Bumper Caps listed on our webpage!

On Sept. 1, 2010, Pinball Resource took over the responsibility for repairs of older Multi Products, Moto-Search, and United Manufacturing (UMC) gearmotors from Multi Products who had been performing them. We are doing this with the help and parts support of Multi Products, whom we would like to thank for the opportunity and for the support.

Motors that will be serviced will be predominantly as described below

Moto-Search....all motors

Multi Products...open frame (visible gears) and closed gearbox (baseball, bowler/shuffle and arcade). We will not be servicing mid-80s thru current closed gearbox motors which have been remade. Many of these are listed for sale on our website. We will not have the parts for these and it is more cost effective generally to the customer to buy a new replacement. One exception to this is that we will continue to support repair on the planets motor for Judge Dredd (14-7985).

UMC...As we took over this enterprise, we were surprised as to how much old parts inventory was at Multi Products for old UMC motors. We had no idea! We will see how many of these repairs are possible as our experience develops; parts are limited to old stock parts and Multi cannot make most new parts for these styles.

We have been doing many of the gearmotor repairs ourselves for years but we still have a learning curve to climb for certain motors and situations.

Pricing and Turnaround

We will attempt to repair motors quickly. Where parts are in stock, we anticipate within a week. Where we need to obtain parts, the time factor will be longer. We have been repairing many of these motors for some time and recognize that we see anything from a simple repair to receiving a box of parts from someone else's failed repair attempt. While we sell rebuild kits for many open frame motors, if you have no experience in performing the repair, please consider carefully before you make the project more difficult (read "costly") by attempting yourself. Pricing framework is expected to be $100. flat fee plus parts. If we need to make an exception, we will discussed with the customer before accepting the work.We will attempt to keep the costs fair and reasonable as is our reputation. Motors that are not repairable will be returned (after discussion with the customer). Depending on the situation, there may be an inspection fee for unrepairable motors depending on the amount of time needed to disassemble. Return shipping charges will apply.

Preparation and Packaging

We don't like surprise packages. In order to avoid motors being sent in that are not within our scope, we ask that all motor repairs be called in via the telephone IN ADVANCE (845) 473-7114, just so we can touch basis. One would be surprised how often we receive packages without instructions/notes/return addresses and have to wait for someone to call to question "what happened to my ....?"

To the best of your ability, please remove the gearmotor from your assembly. We suggest you take photographs if you are unsure how to re-assemble. Please keep all cables and attachments to output shafts. Please note there are exceptions to this as some assemblies use blind taper pins, roll pins and other types of attachment that are not easy to remove without specialized tools. We love the blind taper pins the most...requiring a milling machine cut into the opposite side of the cam to find the other end of the taper pin. If in doubt, PLEASE ASK before sending us a "surprise".

Please pack all motors tightly in newsprint in a secure box. DO NOT USE styrofoam peanuts. Please take extra care not to damage the electrical winding bobbin and its terminals, this part is most difficult to obtain and to replace. If you take care in packaging, we receive the motor in the best condition. It is disheartening to receive a motor that would have been simple/fast/cheap and find avoidable shipping damage that makes it complicated/slow/expensive. Damaging a motor beyond repair sentences the customer to finding a used motor somewhere as single motors cannot be manufactured one at a time.
