Photos of Skeeball Machine
« on: April 30, 2017, 05:06:37 am »
Hello all!

I've been looking online for plans and measurements for SkeeBall machines but can't find them in one organized group anywhere.

Today I had a chance to play one and I asked the manager if it was ok for me to take photos of the curve for the ramp. She let me and so I've decided to post it here. Maybe someone would be interested in figuring out the dimensions for some of the stuff?

I don't know?, I just thought that these photos with a measuring tape would be useful. Hope these help!

Bad news: There was a webpage here with unclet's skeeball plans/photos that Saint must have overlooked during the server transfer.  :dunno

Good news: I saved many of the files and can repost them, but most are already in the threads linked below.

Unclet posted most of the necessary measurements in this thread by Ixliam.

Thanks for the response! I've looked at some of those and missed some of those too. I'm really sorry that I missed that  ::).

It looks like the link in the "bad news" section doesn't work. I'm getting a 404.

Thanks so much for sending those links and sorry for the double posting topic/spam. I'll do an even more thorough look through next time. :cheers:

Hence "bad news" and the past tense "was".   :lol

Here's some better news -- I forgot to check archive.org. :embarassed:

You can find most of unclet's skeeball photos at https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20160608164839/http://unclet.arcadecontrols.com:80/SkeeBall/SkeeballPics1.html

Pictures 21-30 didn't get backed up.
- 23, 24, and 25 are the side-view plans and playfield.  They're in the "measurements" thread above.

- 28 is the picture showing pegs behind the 50 and 100 chutes.  It's in one of the other threads above.

- 29 and 30 are the pictures of the ramp template with the L-square on the plastic sheet.  I think they're in one of the threads above.

- Not sure what the other photos were.  :dunno

Thanks so much for sending those links
Glad to assist.   :cheers:

sorry for the double posting topic/spam.
Nothing to be sorry about.

Thanks for sharing your pics.   :applaud:

Hmm....  I still haven't made that outdoor skeeball machine.  If anyone ever sees a good sale on pvc drain pipe let me know. ;)

I love skeeball, but didnt' have the space. Now I know where to put one.


Back when I lived in California and they were still doing the SuperAuctions, I could have got piles of Skeeball machines for $5 each. Man I wanted one. But I didn't have a flatbed or a basement hah hah.

Wow, I wish.  They're going for insane prices at the moment.  I haven't seen one for under $1200.  Looks like I have to build :(.
