Quoted from gismo31:

hello any chance for a ramp for the transporter ? i have the 3d file but can find someone who's able to make me one ? thanks alot !

Check out this thread. There is a discussion going on there for reproduction of this ramp. I don't know if I can do it.

thanks ! i was also posting on that threat. major problem is the cost. i've found a firm thats makes me the mould for 17700 euro ( ! ) . they also have an offer for a silicone based mould around 3600 euro / 25 pièces but i'm not sure about the material used ( Synthene PRC 1708 ) nor the price...

TTR crossover ramp update.
This morning I received this e-mail from Rick (PPS)
Dean … fyi we are working on getting the tool run, so will probably later this year, but we have a way to get the ramps done.
Rick
I replied with "Sweet! That sounds great Rick! Mind if I am the pinside leaker of that info? Thank you for keeping this ramp in mind. I think this news would really put some smiles on some faces. Dean
He replied that I could leak this, so here you go....

#1555 8 months ago

Hummm. Wonder if this means the who Dunnit elevator ramp will be tooled and made to ? There kinda similar.

#1556 8 months ago

Oh please one day do WD.

#1557 8 months ago

Hello. Searching for the Comet corkscrew ramp. Any chance you have been able to produce one? I know you have taken time off for yourself. I actually need two of them. Let me know if you can make them. Thanks.

#1558 8 months ago

Throwing in my vote for a Space Shuttle ramp.

I do have a donor ramp for the Comet Corkscrew and hope to do it very soon.

Quoted from Freeplay40:

There has been quite a bit of interest in the Rollergames ramp. There is an avid collector locally that has offered to let me borrow his game if I decide I want to do it. It's bigger than my current setup can handle right now. My forming machine can handle the bigger sheets but not my heat source. Still planning on building a bigger machine, but may "bridge" to the new machine by first building the heating component. This would allow me to heat the larger pieces of plastic and form on my current setup.
So...ramps for Rollergames? ... most likely eventually!

Mark, that is encouraging to hear there is a good possibility of a repro Rollergames ramp.
It is a very large mold I am sure since the ramp is really three ramps in one!!

My vote as well for Space Shuttle ramps. Mine are fine, but transparent Blue would be AWESOME in this game.

#1564 7 months ago

Another vote for Space Shuttle Blue ramps!

ps - Glad your surgery & recovery went well

#1565 7 months ago

Another vote for Space Shuttle here. The black one has got to go.

#1566 7 months ago

I wrote in this thread 3 months ago that I'd be in for a Space Shuttle ramp, and that continues to be true.

#1567 7 months ago

I would be in for a new Space Shuttle ramp also!!!!!!

#1568 7 months ago

yep, bring that blue space shuttle ramp.

#1569 7 months ago

Still hoping for the other Rocky and Bullwinkle ramp. Glad your recovery is going well.

Did I miss the Strange Science Ramps going for sale?

I'm still working through a backlog of ramp requests and am very close to doing another round of Strange Science ramps. Just let me know specifically what you want.

#1572 7 months ago

SPACE SHUTTLE TRANS BLUE is very exciting. Mine is trashed and I was thinking of just getting another black one.

I need the entire Anti Gravity ramp. Just the original blue and clear it had originally.

Looking for the good ol Time Machine tornado ramp. I don't really want to play the one I have for fear of further cracking.

#1576 7 months ago

Hi Mark, is there a possibility of doing a ninja turtles ramp? I think most owners have a damage one, so demand should be there. Kinda like the hook ramp

Hello Mark,

Is the Time Machine tornado ramp one that you have made before or may make in the future? I poured through the previous posts in this thread and did not see any on this machine. I understand that this ramp looks fairly complex to reproduce with little demand. Thank you in advance for your response.

I've been contemplating the left ramp for well over a year now. I actually have a couple samples of this ramp from a local enthusiast. Very difficult ramp to make a mold for. The material I presently use for molds simply would not withstand the forming process. I have not totally given up on it and at some point there is another material that I want to try which this ramp would be a good test for.

I'd be in for a Comet corkscrew, along with a Black Belt ramp!

#1583 7 months ago

Thank you for your response Mark, I appreciate your efforts and please let me know if there is something that I can help with to make this ramp.

#1584 7 months ago

Any.chance you'll make Batman Forever ramps? I'm running out of glue, metal and pop rivets

#1585 7 months ago

+1 for TMNT ramp

If you ever work this out I am in!

#1587 7 months ago

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would be great! If a Ninja Turtles ramp is possible at some point in the future, would you need a nice example to make a mold from?

#1588 7 months ago

Hi Mark, would the left ramp for the Monopoly machine be one that is possible to do on current equipment? These aren't available anymore and the best i could track down so far was a damaged one at $145 US

#1589 7 months ago

hey Mark, I'm just checking in on this thread after being out of the loop for a while, so sorry to hear about your health troubles. Hope your road to recovery is short and well-paved!

I'm throwing in my 2 cents to vote for Pinbot ramps...translucent blue into red would be incredible, though just blue would be very nice as well.

Also I just restored a Rollergames and the ramp entry was pretty badly deteriorated. You can fix 'em up with fiberglass resin (thanks @vid1900!), but it would be nice to have the option to replace. I'm sure it would be pricey, given its size, but it would be a nice service to the hobby. I'm amazed at how fast and fun that game is; I'd never played one that was really playing nicely before!

#1590 7 months ago

I have been a little slowed down with recovery. A little dilemma right now as my sternum did not heal (fuse back together). My options are just live with it which I guess many do or go for the additional surgery to put metal plates in my chest. Also understand there is quite a bit of risk associated to the metal plate surgery so I've decided at least for the time being to forego any additional surgery....can always be revisited later. Doctor told me I can go back to doing whatever I want as long as I can tolerate it. Feeling better every day but sneezing is still pretty painful.

Pinbot is a definite ramp I want to do and I'm also considering Rollergames. I have a Pinbot machine on loan to me right now that the owner is ready to take back so I need to get the mold made for that one as quick as I can!

Wow, well glad to hear it's a complication you can deal with at least. Take it easy!

Nice! I have a NOS vortex ramp for Pinbot, along with the flap that drops on the left ramp, but it would be cool to have the rest of the left ramp recreated. I'd be in on that part for sure!

#1595 7 months ago

Hey Mark, any updates on the corkscrew ramp for Comet? I need two of them. Thanks.

#1596 7 months ago

I'd love to see Party Zone ramps! I just picked one up, and the right ramp is split in two

Please put me on the list for a Time Machine ramp, would be happy to test any proto type ramps. I will be getting my High Speed Ramp to you soon. Physical Therapy is working..

#1598 7 months ago

Another vote here for a Space Shuttle ramp please!

I hope you feel better soon!

#1599 7 months ago

I am in for a Rollergames ramp. It is my next restoration in the cue.

#1600 7 months ago

Hey All... Just want to let everyone know that there will be another lull in my production coming in the next few weeks. I do not have a set date yet, but I am opting to have another surgery. Specifically this will be for the reconstruction of my sternum which did not heal properly following the open heart surgery. My entire sternum is separated and although I have been told that one can choose to simply live with this, after meeting with the reconstructive surgeon his advice was to go ahead with the repair. At approximately 10 weeks since my initial surgery I should be completely recovered, however I still suffer some severe pain, thankfully only when I cough deeply or...sneezing is a real bitch....not to mention the unnerving feeling of bones grating over one another. Failure to stabilize my rib cage would result in future limitations such as lifting. So this is a quality of life choice. Nobody wants more surgery, but this is certainly less than what I just went through, and I anticipate a quicker recovery. Hospital stay is only 1 or 2 days.

There are several of you with ramps requests involving me doing assembly, and should you be anxious to get those done, I just recommend you get your parts to me ASAP. As I said, I do not have a date for the surgery set yet, but I am anxious to get this done and behind me and have requested first available date. Guessing probably within 2 weeks.

As I continue to respond to new orders and finish existing orders I want to focus on several new molds before my surgery. My process for molds require they "cure" for at least a week to 10 days before they can be finish prepped for forming the pieces so if I can get them cast they can cure while I recover. On my plate right now for molds are the Corkscrew for Comet, the three pieces for Transporter and if I can get to it, I want to get the Pinbot pieces cast.

Better days ahead my friends!
