This thread is intended to be a pointer for people to track down commonly required parts, hard to find items, or just excellent arcade repair supplies.

Please post any additions to the bottom of the thread and I'll add them to this first post after checking them out. If you have any affiliation to the retailer/source, please state so :)

LOPTs:

MTC9000/9010 LOPTs (HR7025) - £19.55 incl P&P
Polo HR7215 - £22.30 incl P&P
Member reported delivery within 2 days.

Cleaning/Polishing Compounds:

http://www.pinballheaven.co.uk/shop/product_info.php?products_id=79 - Source for Novus plastic cleaner/polisher/scratch removal. 2 day turnaround on recent order and many reports of good results.

http://www.treasure-cove.net/PolishingKit.htm - Alternate polishing compound for similar targets to Novus. No report on shipping time but positive report on efficacy.

Components:

Shelly61@aol.comGreat source for RAM, ROM, PLD, CPU etc. Covers modern flash devices back to 2532/2708 and the like. Discounts are based on quantity, so sometimes a group order might be best. Shipping from the US but has always been pretty fast and well packed. 

General (bit of everything):

http://www.coin.demon.co.uk/ - Swallow Amusements. They have pretty much anything you'll need in the way of connectors, fingerboards, restoration components and the like. Definitely worth a browse if you're doing any kind of repair or restoration. Number of good trades with fast comms, fast delivery and excellent handling when a package went missing in the post.

Hantarex Monitor Connectors:

Once thought extinct, our member Ace` has tracked them down!


T-Molding

From our resident expert, Dan, Dan, the t-molding (hunting) man!

www.t-molding.com for a variety of T-molding colours and sizes (in the US though)
http://ukt-molding.co.uk is a UK source but tend not to reply to emails or generally do anything very quickly
 
http://stores.ebay.co.uk/ARCADE-WORLD-UK for more standard colours & sizes (in the UK, and they do sort out stuff fast)

Custom Chips

http://fpgaarcade.com/parts.htm - Namco and Konami customs

http://retroclinic.com - some Sega PALs

http://www.andysarcade.net/ - can program many parts, original spares available too - it's a goldmine!
