The second lot of crap pinball parts I picked up was less exciting than the first. This one was actually very specific and there was a good reason I picked it up. Not a ‘box’ of parts this time, but a small group of 3 target assemblies. I put them in a box when I got home – if that counts 🙂 For the price of $9, it was more expensive than the box in my last update. But there was one part here I specifically wanted. The first (and most important) was the target bank from Pinbot (the very machine I’m currently restoring). Ignoring the state of the missing and broken target, the frame is in much better condition than the one in my machine now and it’s a part you can’t just go out and buy. This one is not broken. It needs a good clean though.
I disassembled the target so I could clean every part of it.
While I’m not yet ready to use it, the target bank is ready to go when I get to that stage of restore on my Pinbot machine. I don’t need any of the actual targets, but these cost around $10 each to replace (brand new), so having 3 spares at hand is not a bad thing and makes the $9 price tag very worth while.
With the pinbot target bank, came two other drop target assemblies. A 3 target bank and 4 target bank. I have no specific use for these right now, but could be handy to keep aside for future project. Because both banks are complete (apart from the coil and a single missing switch) they’re ready for raiding should I need specific parts.
Right now I’m sorting through a 19kg box of spare parts for my next Crap box update. After that is a larger box of 32kgs of second hand parts to sort through. Can’t wait to see what I find in those 🙂
