Got an update from Wade on June 26th:

"I still have Abra in line before C37 but I expect to be working on Abra again next week".

Looks like we're getting close!

Update from Wade in case you missed it. C37 is next!! (edited for content)

Hi everyone, this is Wade writing to you with an update about Abra Ca Dabra playfields and my other upcoming titles. The Abra boards are cut, inserts are glued in and leveled, the backside drills are done. The art is ready and I am in the process of sealing the boards now and printing will begin after this phase is complete.

After Abra, I will be producing Centigrade 37 and then Fast Draw.

Good morning. Got an email from Wade last night:

"Hi Rob, I will begin C37 soon, hopefully in just a few weeks. I am making crates and boxing up Abra boards and still have a few left to cut. Awesome news, thank you for running the poll."

The wait is almost over!

#112 1 year ago

Great News

#113 1 year ago

Sweet! Being waiting a long time for this one.

#114 1 year ago

Great news.

#115 1 year ago

I'm looking forward to getting my Abra and glad to see the Centigrade moving into production.

#116 1 year ago

Very good to hear!

#117 1 year ago

Awesome!

#119 1 year ago

I'm in. PM sent. I sure hope I get one this time. I was on the Sing Along list and didn't get one.

#120 1 year ago

Sweet.

#121 1 year ago
Quoted from Chippewa-Pin:

...Here's the latest from Wade when I told him we were up to 39 and asked if there was a limit:
"Hi Rob, this is fantastic news. I do have a limit of 30 and I will do what I can to get the limit raised to meet the demand. I did pick up a machine to copy from and I will start on drafting and art once I have Abra in production which should be pretty soon. I am almost done with Jumping Jack. Thank you for making this happen." With this being 2 years in the making, there will probably be a few people who initially wanted in, but now no longer have a need for a playfield, so I feel pretty confident that everyone who is currently on the list who still wants one will get one. I do have the list in chronological order of request.

So now we are finally next for this Play field being made . what is Wades final number that he can make? I think I am # 36 from 11 months ago, I was able to get a Kings and Queens and a Knockout play field so I know some people will always drop out but I really,really,really want this one!

Steve - You are #38. I believe Wade said he could make around 40. There are currently 43 on the list, but since this has been a few years in the making, there may be some who drop off.

Got your IM Christopher. You are #42 so I think you have a great shot of getting one.

Great news from Wade! I just sent him the latest list of names this morning.

I have all the blanks cut with backside drilling, inserts are in and I'm in the sanding/sealing process for the next week. After that, printing will start. Photos are on my blog page: https://pinballplayfields.wordpress.com/

Also, I need to mention that the yellow and green inserts will be screened with the color. The place that makes these (Foremost Plastics) is no longer stocking the colorants. I have done this before and they look and work just fine.

#131 1 year ago

Excellent news. Wade is the best in the business.

#132 1 year ago

Excellent ....good to hear this is finally coming together.

#133 1 year ago

Great news. My C37 project is looking forward to it.

#134 1 year ago

Nice! Have two of his other PFs and they are beautiful.

I hung out with my buddy Wade yesterday at his shop. I saw him in production with C37. They are looking really nice. This might be a time for people to confirm with Wade that they still want one. Maybe shoot him an email. I know there is a list for him, but I also know people fall off that list. This really helps him determine how many extras to be made. Just an FYI. I wish I had a C37 now.

#137 10 months ago

I believe he contacted the list in july for confirmation. But i guess alot can happen in 2 months.
I sent him a deposit in july so im sure he knows im committed.

Hmmm, never contacted in July or at all. I will send him a PM directly.
Thank you for the reminder!

#139 10 months ago

I sent him a small deposit as well. Looking forward to it.

Never saw the email, so thanks bro for the timely post. Emailed and paid a deposit so I am getting a playfield!

#141 10 months ago

Just FYI... I last talked to Wade about a month ago. He has not asked me for the list yet.

He contacted me today and listed the email address he sent a message too, same as what I gave you my friend and that was the only list I was on.

All is good.

I'd say thats a fair timeline. He told me he was about a month behind in production.

#145 10 months ago

I send him my deposit also a few months ago.

I must have already sent him the list and I forgot. Getting old!

#147 10 months ago

I sent Wade a full payment with PayPal as soon as he contacted me. PayPal auto-refunded it a day or so later because there was some issue with the receiving account. I emailed Wade about it but haven’t heard back from him yet. I’d like to get my money to him. I guess I could try the same PayPal address again...

if you PM bicyclenut he can probably provide a mailing address to send a check.
