    Default Part for Vintage Nishijin Machine

    I just purchased my first Pachinko machine, a Nishijin "Sophia(?)" - it seems to be in very good shape but I have found a broken part, the pivoting crank that holds back and releases the balls in the payoff mechanism. Can anyone recommend a source for replacement parts for these machines? I have attached a photo of the part and the sheet metal plate that screws onto it. Any advice is appreciated - otherwise the machine seems to work perfectly so I'm eager to get it completed! Thanks.

    Welcome to pachitalk. Looks like it may be time for one of our 3D printer gurus to come to the rescue.

    5 min epoxy is your friend..

    i had to do a repair like that a few years back.. what a total nightmare to get it adjusted right.. but once i was adjusted it worked like new..

    keeping every thing at a perfect 90 degree is the important part

    and of course

    Thanks for the replies. A question about how this link works - I see that there is a lever above it that the flat face of this crank rides against. My assumption is that the lever never rises high enough that the crank will rotate underneath it but that the faces of the lever and crank stay stay in contact. Is this correct?

    Thanks for the replies. Before I get too far with this repair, I want to confirm how this link actually works. The flat surface at the top of the crank rides against a lever that controls the angle of the crank. When the lever rises, the crank tilts. Am I correct that the lever is not supposed to go high enough that the crank can go right under it? It looks like the surface of the crank and lever are always in contact and it just allows the crank to tilt a little. Let me know if I am understanding correctly. Thanks,
