Most vendors have some parts that are useful in both video games and pinball machines, and many long-time vendors have a stash of pinball parts, too. For instance, Bob Roberts has had various pinball stuff, but not really a full selection.
Corrections appreciated (send to firstname.lastname@example.org). Recommendations are based on personal experience and preference, but we would consider bribes.

Sometimes, a board is missing or parts are NLA and this is the only way to go. Sometimes, it's just a hell of a lot cheaper to replace 30-year-old stuff with new stuff.

If you want to buy a game, you may want to think locally. Shipping is usually on the order of $400 on up. Sometimes, though, you can get a great deal even taking into account shipping.

Everything ends up appearing on eBay... eventually. This can be a good way to get parts cheap, if you're the only one that wants it.
