WTB: Atari Paddle shell

Recommended Posts

While I was playing today I dropped my paddle on the floor and it broke apart. I need a replacement shell.

Or buy a new set of paddles from me!  Lol... I have a brand new set of paddles in the marketplace that I got from a Flashback 8 deluxe.  I'm selling it with the FB 8 (no joysticks though) for $43 shipped or $50 shipped with a CIB Ocean City Defender.

 

Ok, shameless plug over... on another note, it sucks when a controller breaks.  Hopefully you can get a shell from someone.

So, after several attempts to super glue the posts back on (they kept chipping away every time I tried to insert the screws) I decided to try duct taping the shell together. It looks like it might hold. But the thing with this kind of tape, after a while it starts to slid off. So I'll see how long this lasts.

If you are going that route then just gorilla glue the edge of the lip on the bottom half of the shell. Won't move then! :)
