Contact Disc Grease


Contact disc grease (used by all the electromechanical game makers), commonly called MBI Grease, has been unavailable for years. Remember the small leftover tubes you sometimes found in the bottom of a game? We used to purchase in bulk and repackage back in the 1990's...then it went away and we could not find it. I babied the small amount I had left for my own use.


I finally reached my frustration limit and found someone who would work with me to formulate a substitute which we are calling PBR-Grease. It is formulated as a mechanical and electrical grease which will protect against oxidation and galvanic corrosion. Packaged in handy 1 oz. (28 grms) wide mouth jars that fit in the tool box just great. It still looks the same but smells a bit different; hope you enjoy it as I feel it fills a need.

MAT-SHIELD


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.

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 don't clean up well or are dented, or both.


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.
