Yeah it’s easy for us to say to make all these ramps and we’ll buy them. That is probably true but I’m sure there is a lot of behind the scenes getting ready to make new ramps. Building the moulds etc. And a new bigger setup I’m sure isn’t easy getting everything involved with that. Still hope it happens one day.

I always picture Mark building ramps in some kind of Willy-Wonka-esque factory with a bunch of tiny orange helpers.

I'll quit my job and takeover his house/ramp factory. I do have the golden ramp ticket.

I'm sure I am not the only one that would love to see a walkthrough or closer look at your work space.

#2755 1 year ago

I'd take a set of demolition man ramps.

He holds his process very close.

#2757 1 year ago

I think I've read all the comments in this thread that include "Space Shuttle" but want to confirm that at present you can not make ramps for it because you don't have all the necessary equipment. There are obvious a few of us that would be interested in replacements. You can add me to the list, I just don't want to pester you about it.

Thanks for your efforts. I'm sure everyone here owes you a debt of gratitude!

dzorbas I think Starship Fantasy makes Space Shuttle ramps. Mark works with Starship Fantasy to make sure that they aren’t both working on the same ramps. The site says out of stock. Email them and ask when they’ll be back in stock.

Starship will only make them in black like the originals. I intend to offer clear and transparent blue.

#2760 1 year ago

Transparent orange Comet Corkscrew ramps back in stock. I had a list of folks indicating interest. Believe I have contacted all of them via pm's. If I missed you and you want one contact me. I made some extras.

Happy Holidays! Mark

I emailed them and they said "Unfortunately it will be months 4-6."
This was October 7th, 2016.
So waiting patiently.

#2762 1 year ago

Mark..Grand Lizard ramps please

#2763 1 year ago

Yes and in clear or maybe green.

#2764 1 year ago
Quoted from Freeplay40:

Yeah I want the blue.

#2765 1 year ago

I will go on record as saying that if the new heater is a matter of capital investment, I will gladly pay towards those needs and then have that credited toward a future ramp purchase.

#2766 1 year ago

Getting closer to a final design for the blue/red transparent pinbot ramps... white areas will be the transparent blue.

Can you make one for Jackbot?

#2768 1 year ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

Probably, but I would need a physical example of the sticker, a physical ramp, and / or a high-resolution scan of the sticker. Unfortunately I do not have a jackbot or access to one.

Those look amazing. Those going be available for purchase?

Yes, once i get it finalized and tested on my own transparent red/blue ramp. Want to make sure its the best it can be before giving it to others.

Maybe if you post this in the Jackbot club someone might be able to help get it done for Jackbot.

Once i successful make this for pinbot, i'll consider jackbot. Mostly, i just like developing things for my own games since i have the parts to play with, and i can do it on my own time.

#2774 1 year ago

I have a Grand Lizard ramp here.. Expect I will do it at some point once the new heater is done.

Quoted from AMBoggs:

I will go on record as saying that if the new heater is a matter of capital investment, I will gladly pay towards those needs and then have that credited toward a future ramp purchase.

I have everything I need for the new heater....Just need to get it done. My existing forming machine can handle plastic up to 24" by 36". That would do most of the ones we want. I am also building a new forming machine, but I intend to focus on the heater first so I can get some of the bigger ramps done using my existing machine.

#2775 1 year ago

Making progress

Transporter... I think it’s hungry!?!

Hey, Mark! Do you have any pinbot visors left? I would like one if so.

There will be much rejoicing when this heater is built!

Buying a jackbot now and may need a visor. Is that something you can make on demand?

My plan is to hopefully have the final art in the hands of someone that can produce them about the time freeplay40 has transporter ramps available, wink, wink...

#2784 1 year ago

This hardware holds up the ramp... anyone know where I can find this post bracket for sale circled in red?... it has a threaded middle hole for the metal post

I would take one of these just to have on hand for a game that will not be leaving.

They are always blown out at the connection points

#2792 1 year ago

I have pm'd you re space station, but have you considered doing the centre ramp for Police Force? Its nearly always broken.

#2793 1 year ago
Quoted from galaga50:

The Police Force ramps are available at Starship Fantasy. I think he sells the outer ramp as a single, but to get the center ramp you have to buy both.

Looking forward to it! Any rough ETA on when this might happen? Thanks again!

starship has been out for over a year. not real motivated to make any new ones it seems.

#2797 1 year ago

I'm pretty sure Starship Fantasy is going to focus on what sells quick.

Ramps and forms no one is making anymore:

Space Shuttle Ramp

Grand Lizard Head
Grand Lizard Ramp

Bride Of Pinbot Helmet

What else?

There should be a list of Ramps & Parts no one will ever see. If someone doesn't step up.
We should have some HERO status on pinside of anyone who fills the gap in a public domain kinda way
that won't pisss off anyone.

We should be having Ramp Maker classes at all the Major Pinball fest.

Mark has been asked about how he makes them but he hasn't told anyone. Why would he tell potential competition?
