** Swinks - Plunger Plates **
« on: October 04, 2015, 10:12:48 AM »
Here are a number of Pinball Plunger Plates available to convert your standard plunger to something with a bit more character. It started with the Metal version of the gear shift plates for car themed pins especially for Mustang. Hooked on Pinball ended up purchasing the 4 speed gear shift plate design and now makes a cool cast chromed metal version.

From here I designed a plunger plate for the Stern Music Pins - like KISS, Metallica, AC/DC and even Elvis and any future ones as well. This plate has the character of a Marshall Amp & Quad Speaker and is available via Shapeways in a cool process of multicoloured 3D print for $14.95.

There are a few other designs now for:
- KISS
- Metallica
- AC/DC
- Creature from the Black Lagoon
- Mustang
- Road Show
- Twilight Zone
- Bowling Game (really wanted to do for TBL but then realised it was a push button   &^&)

with more to come

check out Shapeways to see the range of Pinball Plunger Plates

some of these have a dedicated custom shooter knob to complete the look of the plunger assembly like:

Marshall plate and volume knob - for band pins

Cadillac bonnet and steering wheel knob - CFTBL

just mocking up a pinball plunger plate to sit inside the plunger housing, still have to flip the design and do some colour changes, open for colour suggestions

good for America's Most Haunted as well as the rumoured Ghostbusters early 2016
