Quoted from Playdium:

What was the total production number run on these?

He promises 25 pfs but usually runs 30 or a couple more. He always has what he calls are seconds but usually very slight imperfections, he is a perfectionist in every sense of the word.

#202 5 months ago

Since I committed to purchasing one some time ago, and the fact that I never found a machine for it, I'll be offering mine up for sale. I've read that Wade has sold out of these. So if you missed out on getting one, send me a PM.

#203 4 months ago

Just got mine today! Thank you Wade from me and all of us!

IMG_1081 (resized).JPG Love opening packages. Wade packs his stuff well and in these times this is good as the box had some minor damage. IMG_1082 (resized).JPG looking good.

Thank you!IMG_1085 (resized).JPG Drooling.IMG_1086 (resized).JPG New rails will look the bomb!IMG_1087 (resized).JPGIMG_1088 (resized).JPG I will fit the rails now and the swap will wait until the rest of the restoration is complete.

steveintexas Who sourced the rails?

Inquiring minds want to know...

#207 4 months ago

I got 3 sets ready now. The young lady is visiting from Austin with my son tomorrow with possibly a few more. Pm me if interested.

#208 4 months ago

Did you guys get a shipping notice email prior to the playfield showing up?

#209 4 months ago

Yes Wade sent me an email that he had shipped, a transmittal # and an expected delivery date

#210 4 months ago

It was my fault - I forgot to reply to his email asking for an address.

Anyone getting a new playfield that wants matching maple playfield rails, Stephanie dropped off 4 more sets last week. They are accurately made, major holes drilled either plain or lacquered with 2 day shipping.

Pm me if interested.

#212 4 months ago

Rails are getting snapped up. So asked Stephanie to get the materials for another 4 sets.

Hi all sending the next batch today. Stephanie and I have one lacquered and two bare sets available and ready from the recent maple wood procured. Let us know if you want a set.

Absolutely beautiful playfield. I’m so happy with this.

Wade's work is top notch.

Quoted from Methos:

Wade's work is top notch.

This will be my 7th playfield swap, and I’ve never had one where the playfield “dimples” are actually drilled out so I don’t have to do it. That’s a HUGE benefit. I’m 90% done with Mata Hari, but I want to start on C37 tomorrow!

#218 3 months ago

steveintexas these lacquered rails are perfect. I’ll populate the rest of the topside tomorrow.

Phew!

#220 3 months ago

Here’s some motivation for others, I hope. Most satisfying swap I’ve ever done, and my first EM swap. I didn’t bother to run new wire. I just snipped every staple, lifted everything and dropped it in place. I’m going to enjoy a glass of wine in the glow of this beauty for a few more minutes, then I’ll hit start. I’m dreading it, because the game has been sitting for 8+ years. Wish me luck!

Chris Hutchins of High End Pins mentions in his weekly restoration thread that he is going to restore a Knockout and C37 in the near future. He picked up some of Stephanie’s new playfield rails.

I lacquered them what do you think, will he sand down and redo.... course he will!

#224 3 months ago

I got really lucky, the game mostly “just worked”. The ball count wasn’t resetting to ball 1 at the start of a game. I sanded the disc on the ball count unit with 1000 grit, and added a very light coat of machine oil, and that fixed that problem. Then I spent a few hours cleaning and tweaking the thermometer ribbon assembly. Some playfield switch adjustments here and there. It’s playing fast and fun at a 5 degree incline, but I’ll probably drop it down a bit.

very nice. Time for a cab repaint?

Quoted from pinhead52:

Yeah, my cab is in rough shape, very faded and delaminating in several places. I’ve used Bondo before with DMD pins, but that seems like the wrong thing to use here.

No these look great. Thanks.

I have one set of maple lacquered and one set of bare rails that will fit 1970's Gottlieb games ready to ship if some one wants for their new play-fields.

#229 3 months ago

Joined two clubs today. I actually need the Sky Jump playfield way more than the C37. My Sky Jump is worn out and my C37 is actually pretty nice.

Edit: Lens must have been dirty. The artwork is crisp and clear and colorful. Not sure why the picture came out meh.

I missed out on this purchase but recently picked up a C37 that could benefit from a swap. If anyone purchased a playfield that they didn't up needing, please PM me.

If anyone did a swap and would be interested in parting ways with their original playfield... and doesn’t mind shipping to Canada... let me know... I think this is a beautiful playfield and have a project I’d potentially like to use one for.
