|Where to get parts, machines, and balls
Yard sale and Flea Markets sometimes have a hidden treasure to two, as well as Estate sales, and well… just the local trash! copyright (C) Dan Reed
I highly recommend a visit to :
http://www.vintagepachinko.com/index.shtml - A great site, and
super nice guy.
How Pachinko Balls are Made! A wonderful animated factory tour!
E-bay has balls, machines, repair books, and parts for sale.
Or you could just search Google

|The glass is 405 x 407 mm in size, which comes
out to 16" X16" - It cost me $13 to get glass cut at my local hardware
store. Go for the "double thick" or window glass. Its thicker
and can handle the balls hitting it VS single thickness glass.
Plexiglas might seem like a good idea if you have children.
Screws and hardware can be purchased at any home center like Home Depot
A "Loosing Ball/Ball Dump/Ball Exit 1" container can be made from a cut cleaned out antifreeze jug. The jug can be cut to shape with a razor blade.
E-Clips (Shaft Retainers) - Most machines have two sizes, big and small.
