Pinball Machine Legs

Post Author: Devospeed » Tue Dec 09, 2008 10:50 am

Anybody know where I can get a set of four pinball machine legs? I've been looking on Ebay and I've only found new sets. The prices have been close to a hundred shipped! I'm looking for either new or used and preferably a lower price than a hundred. If anybody has any they want to sell please email me a price!

I bought a few things from the Pinball Resource. You may have to call. I think the owners name is Steve. He was a pretty good guy to work with. Legs, levelers and bolts are all sold seperate so I don't know what the total would be with shipping.

I think I found that website before, thanks for the link though. I just found some on Ebay for a set of 4 chrome legs and leg levelers for about $59 shipped. By the way this is what I'm going to do with the legs, a Future Pinball Table! This is what I'm using for the table, can anybody guess what it is? :shock:

Very cool - where would those of us with projects be without ebay?

I can't wait to see pics of the finished product.

22" widescreen LCD monitor, or something bigger?

I'm hoping to get a 22" LCD for the table view and a 15" or 17" to display the pinball header. I have a duel VGA card that should work perfect for this. So far buy.com has the best prices for LCD monitors, but I have been scanning Ebay for used monitors. I plan on starting this project in January and also finishing up the touch screen arcade! I also have a bartop Mame cab started :shock: My wife is ready to kill me! :shock:

I like your projects. If your willing to paint your own legs they are $14 apiece at http://www.marcospecialties.com/itemdes ... =A-19514-N Image
Get a set of these to help attach the legs to your 45 degree corner blocks.

Pickup some bolts, and levelers and you will have a real pinball set of legs.

Well I now have a 22" Acer LCD for the playfield on my Future Pinball table! :D I listed my Secret Treasure to trade it for a 22" LCD and had a guy reply within 5 minutes! The LCD is brand new! Now I just need to make a decision on the pinball legs. And I also need to find a 19" LCD for the header of the table.

I guess they are supposed to come out with a new version of Future Pinball that has an option to show the table laying flat in a vertical position? Its supposed to be coming out Christmas day! I will post some picture of my progress!

I was looking at those and was thinking about adding it. Is the connection pretty much the same as a cherry switch used on an arcade? I'm going to be using a keyboard encoder for all of the buttons and map them to the Future Pinball controls. I also got my legs, brackets and bolts last week. I should be able to mount them tonight so I can start mocking up the table. I purchased the chrome set of legs. If I get it done tonight I will post some pics! Future Pinball just came out with another update and there are some new tables also. You can now show the table flat on the screen!

the wires are for a factory pinball wire harness, there is a ground and light wire. I am not sure on the rest, I would hope it was a NO switch pressing makes the contact.

Here are some pictures of the Pachi cabinet on pinball legs! I'm glad I purchased the 3" leg levelers. I think this is going to be a fun project!

I got my dual VGA graphics card yesterday from Hong Kong, so today I'm going to do some testing with two monitors. I will post some pics later! I got a lot of mixed reactions last night when we had everybody over for New Years. Some people could not understand how I was going to build this? I guess some people do not have the vision!

That is freakin' awesome looking. If you put some black laminate on the sides it would cover all the holes and look nice.
These are my opinions and just because I am the admin you don't have to agree with me

I ordered some black iron-on Melamine from parts express to try out. If it doesn't work then I'm going to use the textured black vinyl on it. The Melamine is supposed to be very durable.
