    Yeah a sale on 1SMD Nonghosting 25 packs and i'll be all over that.

    #102 1 year ago

    Need some 50smd seizure bulbs!

    #103 1 year ago

    Non ghosting bulbs for sure.

    #104 1 year ago

    Some 'flashers' for Stern Spike games would be a good addition

    #105 1 year ago

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Hear you on the non-ghosting. That might be possible someday.

    Quoted from ScottyC:

    So basically 5v flashers? Are yours dying, or is it that you want different color choices, or something else entirely?

    Yep 5V. Either they were missing or wanting to change up the colors.

    Love how fast the shipping is from Comet. Filled fast and correctly *thumbs up*.

    an idea for a product would be a rgb led on a mini board (similar to a one insert stern board) to replace a bulb / bulb connector for 80's games with 2 solder pads but then have a screw to wind / adjust the rgb colours just for under all the inserts only - if that is even possible.

    #109 1 year ago

    Ordered some warm whites for Evel Knievel, and they still have that blue-ish "cool white" tint to them, even behind the backglass. I will probably end up using them in inserts, but have yet to find an led that really looks like an incandescent, in that temperature range. Cant stand them anyplace they're visible, and I've tried them all. Frosted, non-frosted, white, sunlight, warm white, different suppliers - notta.

    Interesting. Why 80's games specifically? And why adjustable RGB...so you can make it any color you want...even colors we don't already have?

    This is something we could explore.

    well it could be any era really, but yes to adjust to any colour

    I did a mini circuit board dip switch design a few years ago which gave you 7 colours (red, green, blue, yellow, cyan, magenta and white) but with that part and a part to allow + and - to be swapped (didn't matter how it was hooked up) made it too expensive (US made with import costs etc) so only made 100 of them but once hooked up was cool,

    happy to share the design for a swap of some parts.

    LOL... I think that my order was missed for the candy. Not complaining at all, just forgot about the candy until this thread.

    Quoted from Phat_Jay:

    A single Tootsie Roll is the equivalent of coal in your stocking! Just kidding. But yes, usually the candy scales based on how big the order is. The best ones got 5 or 6.

    Quoted from kcZ:

    So sorry about that! I'm sure I've missed the candy step a few times when packing orders. There are also other factors, for example if your package is a few ounces under one pound, we may leave out candy because adding it would tip the order into Priority Shipping, which bumps the cost up significantly. On the other hand, if your package is already going Priority, I'll usually put in some extra since it's usually flat rate, unrelated to weight. And international orders don't get candy.

    TL;DR It's a mixture of art and science.

    At least you didn’t miss making your order right. I got the post light up kits and should have ordered 2 kits for a single game - I ordered “1 kit” for a game not thinking.

    #116 1 year ago

    My order arrived faster than expected! Thank you!
    Quick question-
    As I was reorganizing my bulb collection I realized I had a bunch of comet bulbs from past orders mixed up alltogether (all frosted white versions I believe).
    Is there a way to tell which bulb is which color white (via the stamped markings on to the bulb base?). Or a visual “bulb cheat sheet” available so I don’t have to test each one to see which type of white it is?

    If they have a clear lens, then you can probably tell. The diodes on the Warm White is almost orange. The Natural Whites have a pale yellow/green color. Sunlight is in between.

    If they are frosted, then you can't tell. Maybe that is something we can have changed at some point. If we removed the 6.3V from the base, then we'd have some extra space.

    The new flex sunlights we started carrying have black bases, which look pretty sexy...but doesn't help you in this specific case.

    #118 1 year ago

    Yeah I knocked my containers of Warm White Frosted 555's and Cool White Frosted 555's off of my work bench one night! That took about 45 mins to sort out plugging them into a translite one at a time.

    Do you have enough space for just one letter? W for warm, C for cool, S for sunlight?

    #120 1 year ago

    I got my package and thanks for the flipper kit but sadly no USA candy

    #121 1 year ago

    Just got my leds from the post office. Can't wait to try them!

    Ryan, thanks so much for your customer friendly way of handling international orders!

    Got my candy yesterday thanks Ryan!!
    Oh, was about about 150 2SMDs in the box too, how quickly I forgot.

    #124 1 year ago

    Done! Left some incandescent because I’m lazy and don’t want to take the game all the way apart to reach three bulbs. Haha
