Last time I ordered was from Patel, but it took a while to get a hold of him. I think I ended up contacting him through eBay messaging in the end. Worth a try though.

Re: Help needed: old rubber blocks, bent metal

Could you replace it with really dense foam? I have access to some that I could share with you. yeah I think if the thickness is the same it would work fine. It is there to limit the back and forth motion, and avoid abrasion to the mechanism. The foam I have is very dense but it can be cut easily. ...

The show doesn't have much of a Pinside presence, but if there is a 2019 edition I will put my Pinside weight behind it. I was excited to check it out this year for the first time.

It would be good to have a clearly defined goal/amount though, there should not be an artificial increase, then increase again, then again. If josh and his team can sort out an amount, post it then we can work towards that goal as we have done today I agree. Josh has disclosed a whopping $7K as his...
