    Default Nishijin A - what is this part called

    Hello! I'm new to pachinko - my goal is to restore my MIL's old machine to working condition. I've done some cleaning and identified it as a Nishijin model A (green parts). The biggest issues I've noticed are a missing nail or pin to hold the jackpot tray and it is missing the spring loaded (metal?) door over the track just before the jackpot tray. Based on a video, the purpose is to keep the balls only one layer thick. What is this piece called? Is it absolutely necessary for functionality? Where might I look for a replacement?

    Hi there, and welcome to the forum.

    For lack of a better description, that would be a "lower ball track cover". They do keep things tidy so you probably want something on there even if you make something out of light tin or cardboard while you put feelers out for the correct part. It is also entirely possible the machine will work perfectly fine without it. Home use is a much kinder environment than any parlour.

    The good news is there are lots of A machines in circulation, so it shouldn't be too hard to find someone with a parts machine. Post a wanted ad on here and just keep your ears open.

    Enjoy!

    Welcome to the group! I just got a replacement lower track cover from Pachinko Restorations, and it arrived super quickly.
