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).

Backglasses are gone. if you are looking for bally slot machine parts and glass, there's still quite a lot of that available.
Backglass prints from holland, and other reproduction parts. Chris in the UK stopped and said coos is making ones that are easier to apply as they are a single layer (the mask is printed on the back rather than a separate piece)
misc parts NOS parts like coils,motors,buttons,front rails,rail plates,legs. Almost any thing you need for bally bingos except playfield parts and backglasses.

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.
Ball lift motor original manufacturer Looks like Pinball Resource is handling these motor repairs now.
Multiproducts made a bunch of the bingo motors. 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.

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
