enjoy your xmas Jady
these will come in good time

#257 4 months ago

Thank you for the update Jady. We are all excited the receive the v3 mod once they are ready. Many thanks to you for making it possible. Have a great Christmas and year end.

#258 4 months ago

no worries on the delay. you can't rush quality!

#259 4 months ago

Great job Jady - getting excited, it's my Xmas present to myself (regardless of when I get it )

#260 4 months ago

Definitely worth the wait. Quality takes time.

#261 4 months ago

Installed my update to version 2.0. Lovin it Jady! Some pics but color washes out. Lines on the facade are actually orange and the "Snack Bar" sign is in red. Looks better in person than in pictures. The facade lights are connected to GI and the snack bar light is connected to the feature light.

Yes, that's your drive in speaker mod. Some more Swinks swag too... ramps supports, shooter plate, and even bubble level holder (not pictured). The cars at the drive-in art blades come from Tilt Graphics. The glowing item in the upper right corner is a lighted drive-in sign that says "Now Showing Creature From The Black Lagoon" in the white area but it is washed out in the picture.

#264 4 months ago

I could send you a video by email of the drive-in sign if you would like to see it in action. It actually has chaser light effects and is pretty cool. I can't upload a video here.

Good grief is that a gorgeous machine!!!!...wait...."Drive-In Sign" mod? back to the site I go...Jady, your work is outstanding!!!!

Actually this is a different mod than the one Jady offers. I will look up the website where this sign can be purchased and post it here. I bought it at a pinball show where the person created a mod to link it to the machine's power.

#267 4 months ago

I don't want to hijack Jady's thread so I won't post any other information after this. The drive-in sign can be found at this website: www.microstru.com. The website is titled Miller Engineering. Look under the tab "O & HO Billboards".

Thanks, and Jady's work is second to none....every CFTBL needs this snackbar!!!!..waiting on some new EL to finish mine off....

#269 4 months ago

cheers for that gac , and no harm sharing a link, looks cool and he has some cool gear

and thanks for the support in the other gear.

#270 4 months ago

swinks this mod just keeps getting better and better, although I don't think I will ever own a CFTBL again I sure appreciate knowing you are out there making these games awesome for people.

#271 4 months ago

decals turned up today and am happy with them - they look nice and fit well.

In total I ended up with 4 proto-types, one is not useable so will go in the display case (has the movie screen decal) and 3 other protos have slight variances (hidden differences) and will have the proto decals - which I only got a couple of out of curiousity and for the fun of it. The 3 other protos have been allocated in which these people being aware of the slight variances compared to the production run models. proto No: 3 & 4 are still in paint.

here is proto No: 1 - non useable
- with the blue FILM decal and Movie Screen Snackbar Decal
- light purple neon and amber sign
IMG_0643 (resized).jpg
IMG_0644 (resized).JPG

here is proto No: 2 - allocated
- with the yellow FILM decal and orange arrow
- light blue neon and amber sign
IMG_0645 (resized).jpg
IMG_0646 (resized).JPG

Note:
1. you will notice the neon in the proto No:2 in which all the production versions will be the same which is curved and steps out the front and gives you a cool extra dimension and gets back to the Snackbar v1 el wire version. There is some slight adjustment in the stepping out to vary the look to your liking.
2. no screws in the top for a nice clean look and one screw in the front, undo a few turns and the top simply slides towards the apron forward 5-6mm and then lifts up.
3. photos never capture the true look as they show over and under saturation in the lighting but this is a close representation and both the neon and sign will never be 100% backlit purely due to the design (so much going on underneath) which was similar to the v2 Snackbar
4. I am working on a add-on mod for top lighting to flash the top when the snackbar opens to glow the top which you can purchase separately when you and if you want it - I will provide a how to manual in time - waiting on the additional bracket and final testing.

hope that helps people and I am getting closer to stocking all the parts, with decals now in and all the paint ready for pickup, now just waiting on tops, signage parts and stainless steel plates to allow production to start.

cheers

yes, I'll finish smoothing them both after they heat up a few times, PITA when the wire is new

#274 4 months ago

yes, totally agree, pick looks awesome, you v1 came out a treat with the sign and new el wire.

as for bending, there is a trick to bending so it sits nicely in, you run the el wire through your fingers and create a curne in the opposite direction and then when you sit it into the groove it sits fairly snug.

Thanks!!! I'll use that approach....it's actually really close to perfect..bottom one spot on....hoping to massage that slight wrinkle out up top.

For a v1, I couldn't be happier!!!!

Loosened both wires and used you tip...Perfect!! thanks....mark

Looks amazing, all of it. I want one of everything if possible. This thread is long and from skimming it I’m not exactly sure what to click on once I get to your site to make the purchase? Any help is appreciated and I’m eager to give you money.

The snackbar mod is not available via website but via no money down preorder list which is closed and full, sorry

I am currently refurbishing my snackbar v2 back to new, repainting, new decals and with a new sign on top so it will be upgraded. Send me a pm if interested and taking photos of before and after.

#280 4 months ago

Just so everyone is aware my access to the net / email / Pinside is very limited as a lightening strike nearby last night fried our modems, router, phones so wont be around much for a few days

#281 3 months ago

Update - 21-12-18

- Stainless Steel plates should arrive today and the new supplier is into the pinball game making pinballs parts as a side business and does an awesome job - the protos were the best quality I have every received.

- A batch of 10 x 3d printed Snackbar parts arrived 2 days ago from an Aussie Manufacturer but I rejected them due to heavy curling - they weren't happy but I was not going to supply inferior product. I have switched back to getting the tops from my regular Belgium (Europe) supplier - good thing is they have a new machine that does higher print quality but I will be lucky to get parts before mid Jan.

My apologies about the delays, as this is not typical for me and I am a little embarrassed about constantly delaying.

Everyone have a great Christmas break with your family and friends and may 2019 be an awesome year for all.

Regards

Jady

Delays are fine when open and honest about them. Enjoy the summer break

#284 3 months ago

Nobody doubts a swinks mod is coming when he says it does, and you know when it arrives it will be the best quality possible. Can't wait to see these getting installed on machines.

I just need you to find a way to make this mod fit the cftbl hole on MB now

thanks mate and looking forward to these going into games as well

as for MB, been a wish pin for myself for a long time, maybe something can be custom designed - but does it suit the theme ?

Probably not but to me it ties CFTBL and MB together with sharing the character, nothing ties the theme as well as your mod with the actual CFTBL game though. Schools out and I'm on break! Have a great holiday swinks!

I reckon I can do a custom one for you, after I complete these 40 mods for everyone.

Have a awesome holiday as well tsskinne

Update 28-12-18

It has taken longer than I had hoped but here is the manual for the released v3.0 Snackbar mod for those on the list which is limited to 40 people along with 3 people that wanted the prototypes. Prototypes are completed and parts are almost in for the production mods to roll out in early 2019. My apologies for the delays and your patience.

Jady,
Your work is awesome. Not just the mods, but the whole package; the vision, mod, communication, transparency, organizational skills, detailed manuals, continuous improvement, patience with customers...
Did I read somewhere this is the end of the line line for the Snackbar mod?
I'm curious to see what's next in store...

Thanks for your kind words, but I also must give a big thanks to everyone for their patience waiting for this version to come out and the support I have had up to this point.

Yes this will be the end of the line with only 40 x v3.0's being made over the next 3 months and then that's it or at least for a few years. I have got a heap of other ideas & projects and just not getting to them

good news.....

I now have everything except the tops to do 40 kits, BUT I did get 10 tops from Belgium which just arrived today and I will order another 15 tops in the next few days. I will start tapping holes and sand prepping over the next few days and start painting by the weekend. So not long for the first 10 guys (will pm soon to prep you), thanks again for your patience.

Got the sign for a 2.0 snack bar. AWESOME!!!

I used orange LEDs to mimick 1950s neon signs. I also tied it into the I in FILM so it lights when snackbar is open but doent annoyingly flash like if attached to the dome light.

#298 3 months ago

thnks for sharing Scott and great idea for linking the sign to the I in FILM near the flippers, I never thought of that.

#299 3 months ago

I was a bit late to the party, but Jady kindly sorted me out with one of the V3 protos!

I can't say enough about how great your work is mate. Holding it when I first to took it out of the box I was surprised by how weighty was.. It's quite robust actually, top notch quality.

The manual was spot on too, very clear and made installation a breeze.

Thanks again and good luck with the rest of production! i'm sure everyone who gets one will be as stoked as me.

IMG_2819 (resized).JPGIMG_2821 (resized).JPG
#300 3 months ago

thanks AstroZombies, I'm really happy you like the mod and able to follow the manual

as for the production, tapping holes and painting starts tomorrow and ordered another run of tops so these will start to roll out in a few weeks
