    Re: Aluminum Pins

    Hey PC
    Don't know about aluminum but there was a synthetic pin out years ago made out of magnesium. It was the first synthetic pin approved by ABC. It was called the Magna pin. I have one in my collection courtesy of Jerry (82/70 king).

      Thanks Mike

      I think that could be the one. He thought they were called MagnaVox or something.
      Do you know if there are any around, I would like to add that to my collection?

            is this the same as the flexi-belly pin?? the pin that was hollow steel with a plastic shell.

              King: I'd be interested in a magna. The one I saw was by AMF (meatball label). It had a white plastic coating and a black bottom ring. This guy also had the same pin with the plastic removed for refurbishing.

              Feel free to E-mail me if you can get your hand on one. I'll let you know what I've got extra of, if you're interested.

                      Jerry:

                      Any chance of having one for me? Just let me know what you're looking for in return. I might still have some Sure-Stuck parts laying around...

                      I am very serious, though, about a trade. Please let me know.

                          I heard a couple of years ago AMF was working on a new pin but never heard any more about it. I think their stock may have dropped to far to keep going on a new pin.
