Material list

Below you’ll find the complete parts & materials list required to build the pinball machine. I didn’t document the total cost of the projects because a lot of parts were parts I already had. It also depends a lot on where you buy the parts.

Some websites I used to get stuff for the pinball machine are:

Farnell.com - If you need some electronics components they probably have it here.

Flippersloop.nl - A local pinball parts supplier for me. The parts used from pinball machines are all very standard. A pinball machine parts reseller close to you can definitely help you.

Aliexpress.com - Everything can be found here for a very low price. Quality is really hit and miss.

I also made a page on kit.com where I have selected a list of harder to find components that I used (or very similar) in the pinball machine build.

(Some of the links in there are affiliate links, this doesn’t cost you anything extra but helps me make content like this)

Components I have selected for you:
