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

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.

07/24/12 – Bally SS Collectors/Historians -We need your Help!

Happy Viewing and let us know what you think!

09/16/11 – Red Plastic Cover for Rebound Gate


This is a Red Plastic cover for the Rebound/Ball Gate used on Gottlieb® 50's Woodrail games. It,s Part GTB-147P $21.60ea.

07/28/11 – Gottlieb® Reproduction Backglasses


We were recently contacted by Gottlieb® Development to help them sell the

Gottlieb® backglass reproductions that they have been archiving as part of

the reproduction approval process.


We have taken these glasses into our inventory and are happy to offer

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.

We have tried to set the selling price at the price the glass was originally

or is currently offered at. Prices are net, no discount offered.


The list of glasses can be seen!

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.
