I decided to save parts from the repairs I performed this year. Above is an overview of the pile from 2013.This isn’t everything. You aren’t seeing rubber (rings, flipper rubber, shooter tips), bulbs, and a few other miscellaneous parts. Trust me, there was a LOT of rubber and bulbs replaced during the year. The parts on the floor (not in the bags) are primarily from in-home repairs.
I know this isn’t all the batteries I replaced as a bunch got thrown away. That being said, below is the battery graveyard that I have for the year. I remote mount batteries or install a coin cell battery (non-WPC games) unless the owner requests that I leave the batteries on the board.
