is this on the order of what you need? maybe you can try a watch maker repair shop.
Yes . The needle assembly on the lower left of the playfield .
The needle , the shaft , and the piece attached to the bottom of the playfield .
The machine is a Jennings cocktail hour .
Are you parting that machine out ?
Thanks
Sam

Notable Features: 10 balls for 5 cents. Uses red balls. Operates on batteries.

That pointer reminds me of spinners from family board games. The actual size is hard to judge from the above image and http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=4278I wonder what the the under playfield parts look like. Any chance a reasonable facsimile can be cobbled togerther using http://www.amazon.com/Spinners-Fasteners-idea-ology-Finishes-TH92717/dp/B001ASMWZW?
Thanks for the link .
The needle could possibly work , but there is a driver that is mounted to the under side of the pinball play field that drives the needle once a tilt is detected .The driver is basically what I am looking for . There is a very similar tilt on my old liberty bell payout pinball if I get a chance I will pull the glass and lift the play field and shoot a picture for reference .
