Backglass and playfield prints. See Coos's site below. See chris's site for info
Backglass prints from holland, and other reproduction parts. Chris in the UK stopped doing backglass prints 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). Coos also has a way to print directly to glass and reproduce mirroring. The result is very close to the original silk-screen glasses.
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.

backglass reproductions using the two prints sandwitched between glass technique. printed backglass repros like what chris dade above does. Purchase options as of 12/15/2019 for continental USA shipping.
  • $225 for the two prints (front print and mask print) + $23 priority mail shipping in continental USA. You buy the glass sheets locally.
  • $245 for prints assembled between two glass sheets + typically $52-$84 shipping depending on where you are.

backglass reproductions using a heat transfer technique I don't know if they've done a bingo glass. Typical costs are on their web site. Factor in the shipping cost of sending your glass to them assuming they don't have the artwork already.

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.
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
