Or call 804-814-4020 any day 8:00am to 7:30pm Eastern time.

Wooden Lockdown Bars Replace those old beaten-up Lockdown Bars (or aftermarket metal ones) on your magic screen games. These are made from kiln dried Ash and individually machined to fit your specific Magic Screen game. They will need clear coating and nail/screw holes drilled for the collector to reinstall their own metal parts (plates, inserts, buttons, beer-seal etc) which are not included.

Currently only a limited number are available - $75.00 plus shipping ($15 to $18 in US).

see light shields SOLD OUT! Not anticipating getting more soon. If you want to get your own from Belgium, go to it. You need to wire transfer money to them, and cough up the customs tax. The actual unit price is around $US 50 cents. After shipping, tax, and wire xfer fees, you're looking at about $1.00/ea - assuming you buy at least 160 pieces. The more you buy, the less the shipping and fees matter.

Don't specifically talk about bingo's unless you need to. While I assume that selling parts for these games falls under the 25 year rule for most states gambling device laws, it's not really clear whether selling parts for these machines is legal. Avoid the issue by not talking about it.
Moto-search
Ball lift motor original manufacturer Looks like Pinball Resource is handling these motor repairs now.
Multiproducts
Multiproducts made a bunch of the bingo motors. One of your fellow bingo loonies gave them a call, and they said this:

"That is our model 302.Its 115vac and 19 rpm cw rotation.If your looking to buy one it is $80.00 and 7-10 working days to make. We take visa or master card or can ship UPS COD. Give us a call if you need one or if you have any further questions."

A recent query (2003) from a guy in australia is not good. The response was 25 pieces minimum. Also, the late model motor (E-119-462 with the rectangular gearbox) is 23 RPM... 25RPM if you are running 50 cycles. Does it matter? Not really. Payout is faster :-)

A talk at pinball expo in 2008 by mark patzke, the president of multiproducts, produced the following:

  • for gearboxes, use magnalube
  • for the sleeve bearings (the brass oil tubes), use 3-in-1 motor oil (blue can...not the red can!) or other teflon impregnated oil

Pinball Resource has taken over repair of the motors. Not clear yet if they will be offering parts. What's usually needed is the motor armature and first reduction gear it mates with. The rest of the gears don't wear much.
