    New combo pack added to site 5-15-16

    Old thread starts here.....

    Just a quick note that we will be running the Tesseract replacement cube again (Dec) with availability of cube only or with bracket and spot light.
    The cube has been redesigned based attempting to duplicate this reaction.

    The pop bumpers have been redesigned to a single piece version of the star shield we ran before (Nov).
    I will be posting pictures of the shields here in a few weeks and another vid of the redesigned cube within a week.
    Thanks for your support!

    Update 7-4 installed shots of the new cube.
    The lighting now comes with true 555 sockets so that lighting can be changed to match the owners imagination.
    The factory kit comes with blue light for the main lighting and purple that reacts with the blue and red during flash mode.

    If you really want a unique look change the purple to red...this creates an almost black cube with red swirl.
    Like I mentioned light combs are limitless.

    Res. for Pop pictures

    I have the test cube but I think the resin will not stand up ...exploring another version.
    If they cant take a air ball I cant make them.

    Here is the test unit in resin...which will fail. Needs to be stronger like my first run but looks cool.

    brothers , try another cube . the mine broke and do not think in most anywhere. so what comes in your , unique . really wanted to like this up . most do not think . Can anyone help me?

    #8 5 years ago

    My original cube broke but was replaced without hassle. I would be interested in the new one and have old as a backup. Any chance of just selling the cube? Unless the lighting is different..

    #9 5 years ago

    Just to be clear none of my cubes have broken. There were two designs...mine which was a solid light blue and PBrefinery which was a clear resin with sparkles. The resin version with sparkles is prone to chips and breaking. If any of mine have broken I am un aware of it.

    #10 5 years ago

    Looking forward to buying your cube when available Hooked

    #11 5 years ago

    Thanks Grinder. To get the look I wanted I have a resin core with an acrylic outer. They are trying to dial it in now. Pops will be to me in a week.

    #12 5 years ago

    I'm sure it'll not only be great looking but also durable like all your mods.

    #13 5 years ago

    I'll be very interested in seeing this. I had the sparkled one, and it did break. Looking forward to your design. Thanks.

    #14 5 years ago

    I am also interested in your Tesseract mod, Hooked. I have the other one, which could not take an airball, and is super glued back together for now. Durability is definitely important! Best wishes for success!

    Any update on this Hooked?

    My Tesseract has met its demise.

    When I put on the tesseract cube I reinforced the bottom with hot glue and never had an issue, I don't think the new owner had it break on him either.

    My cube flew off a few weeks ago, I glued it with industrial engineering super glue and it lasted about a week I guess. Maybe 20-25 games. I guess the inertia of the large cube spinning on a relatively small contact spot is a little more than it can take.

    I lubed my shaft (heh heh) with silicone so the cube spins crazy fast!

    I've found super glue reacts with the plastic and almost makes it more brittle, hot glue or nothing for me......

    Edit-----but whatever, the stock cube looks lame anyway, the flashing cube mod is pretty sweet

    Replacement cubes are coming but we are refining it.
    I currently on sample 5 others were ok just not what I want.
    It will happen...there are enough broken aftermarket cubes and stock cubes out there to have a demand.

    If sample 5 is perfect- they will be a April launch at this point.

    #21 5 years ago

    Hey, what the hell are those metal washers doing under the sling plastics? Clear washers are what the cool kids are using these days.

    Just gotta hope mine last till April. I sold my spare to another pinsider whose cube had broken so he'd have one

    #23 5 years ago

    I'll definitely order one for backup.

    Few test shots for the fun of it, testing colors still.
    Fine line between clear and too clear...more testing to come.

    #28 4 years ago

    Exciting.

    #29 4 years ago

    interesting thing is the red does not show till light is passed through.
    Anyway still testing ...top cube was not polished yet just a rough cube color test.

    #30 4 years ago

    Any new updates....very curious,

    #31 4 years ago

    Paid for just waiting. The color pattern will be similar yet unique to each cube. If anyone wants just a cube that will be offered as well. You can reuse your stock bracket or those with broken cubes (non hooked on pinball cubes) you can swap out.

    #32 4 years ago

    I'm curious of the cube and lighting... Will wait for final pics, but most likely in for one.

    #33 4 years ago

    Lighting will be the same as my last tesseract two colors...one with insert one with flasher.

    #34 4 years ago

    Im all ears on availability.... =D

    #35 4 years ago

    The test cubes were blue on the outside....this one blue throughout like the last lighting shots.
    Getting close to production.

    Hi Robert . How's the weight of these new cubes compared to the original Pinball Refinery modded ones . I have one of Gio's earlier ones and it does weigh slightly more than the stock factory cube and does affect the spinning action slightly .

    #38 4 years ago

    I can weigh one today (proto).
    My original (solid blue) and Gios (Clear with glitter) both were solid no way around them being heavier.
    Balance and a low center of gravity is key when mounting. I never played a game with Gios so its hard to comment on that.

    #39 4 years ago

    That looks cool! Nice job!

    #40 4 years ago

    Cube is 3.58oz without bracket. Stay tuned....

    #41 4 years ago

    Looking good. NT

    #43 4 years ago

    Can I choose which one id like?

    #44 4 years ago

    That would be like picking a marble ...way too complicated.
    Still about a month out IMO ...taking forever...but like the barn worth it in the end.

    Sarcasm doesn't translate well in text, lol

    But I like your analogy

    #46 4 years ago

    You would be amazed at some of the requests I get...I.have learned not to dismiss any requests lol.

    #47 4 years ago

    Looking great! I may have to get one of these to replace my refinery version!

    These will be offered install ready and do it yourself cube only. The do it yourself is what you would want if replacing a broken cube from other vendors.

    When you say "cube only" Robert , will it come with the metal bracket attached ?

    Nothing wrong with the cube in my machine now and the screws holding the bracket to the cube are loctited in . Would love to get one of these as a possible replacement . They look so damn good !!

    #50 4 years ago

    Some guys want just the cube. Others will need full kit and both will be offered.
