Quoted from Freeplay40:

Working on both the Transporter and Radical right now. Some of the first finished Radical ramps....[quoted image]

Awesome can't wait.

#3502 80 days ago
Quoted from Code:

Will you be making any TMNT plastic ramps in the near future? I believe there is some small demand for these.

The demand is bigger than "small"! Ha!

#3503 80 days ago

Minor hiccup on the Radical ramps. Up until now I have been ordering this particular thickness of plastic from my local vendor. They do not as a practice, stock this thickness, so when I order, it takes 2-3 weeks for me to get it. The last order I received had just too many flaws in it for me to use a lot of them....I will be returning this to the vendor for credit. Now the good news... I have located a new vendor just north of Tacoma that regularly stocks this thickness of plastic and was competitive on the price. Normally, he can cut what I need same or next day, but my timing wasn't the best as his guy that cuts plastic will be on vacation next week. That said, I will get the next order in on Sept 8-9, which is still much faster than I would have gotten it from my current vendor who I have lost confidence in with this thickness. I have enough good product to cover most of the orders, but those toward the bottom of the list will have just a little more wait.

Radical Ramps Update.

While I wait a bit for the next plastic purchase so I can complete the list for the Radical ramps, I'm going to start shipping in just a couple days.

So here is the deal. I'm going to offer individual prices for the Upper left ramp (in 3 versions), the Vertical ramp and the Vertical ramp cover. A typical package would be the upper left ramp in any version, the Vertical ramp and the vertical ramp cover. Any combination order of 3 or more pieces I will knock off $5 per piece.

Individual Prices:

Upper left no cut-out for VUK $125
Upper left with cut-out for VUK $125
Upper left with VUK cut-out and factory VUK cut-out cover $135

Vertical Ramp $125
Vertical Ramp cover $25

Order 3 or more pieces take $5 per piece off.

I will figure out shipping shortly.

As soon as I figure out the domestic shipping I will start contacting folks on the list as well as confirming which upper left ramp version is desired.

Thank you for your patience....I know it seems like this stuff takes forever...... but I get there eventually!

Mark

#3507 80 days ago

Glad to hear it. If you think this feels like forever just remember my game has been down for 2.5 years now waiting for a ramp :/

Freeplay40, Thank you for everything you are doing!!! Forgive me if this has already been addressed in the previous 70 pages....is there any intention to remake the other Radical ramps?

One of the other two pieces for Radical is larger than my current heat source can handle...I can form larger plastic, but just not set up yet to heat larger plastic. What I'm doing right now is working to complete the two Radical ramps and the Transporter pieces. Once that is basically done, I will continue to get regular orders for stuff I've already made, but I will pause new ramp development (Considering slipping Black Rose in) while I finish the work on the new heat source. Once the new heater is operational, the first pieces I will do are the Comet center ramp and the two remaining Radical Ramps....after those probably Space Shuttle.

#3511 79 days ago

Yes please!

I’m more excited about the new heater than anything else in the universe.

You are? Hell i'm so anxious I started a Gofundme page on Marks behalf to raise cash for the heater and a team of technicians to assemble it while Mark finishes up the mold for the Comet center ramp!

new heater! hope we didn't forget DR.DUDE ramp.

Where you going to be able to do the left main ramp on Black Rose also? I definitely am in need of it. I would take a new set for BR.

#3519 77 days ago

Mark,

Do you have or will you be making main blue ramp for Pinbot?

#3520 76 days ago

At this moment, I have 2 Main transparent Blue/Red ramps left that just need to be finished (They are not finished because I can make them for Pinbot or Jackbot). One, I'm holding for someone so really only 1 available.

this is the most uplifting thread on pinside, like the lepers stepping forth to be healed. You can sense the excitement of machines that might be rescued.

Are you missing one or is it just broken at the top.
I have a extra that is just broken at the top.

#3530 74 days ago

Yeah if that Congo Volcano ramp can be made you would be able to sell a lot of those things.

#3531 73 days ago

Space shuttle please.

#3532 73 days ago

Shipping the first two Radical Ramps in the morning to the original donor (dung). Note that the upper left ramp has the two light brackets riveted to the new ramp...because he sent them to me. Not included in my offering. Those brackets are normally riveted, but could just as easily be attached with small screws and nuts for those not set up to rivet.

I found these, plus the twist lock blue dome ...

Does the socket fit in the base possibly??? Anyone know ?

The Radical pieces pictured below are now available. There are three different versions available of the upper left ramp. The original version on the left has the cut-out for the VUK. The version in the center is what I refer to as the "transition" piece. When the VUK was eliminated from the game, existing inventory of ramps with the VUK cut-out were provided a cover for the VUK cut-out. The version on the right is the newest version where the cut-out for the VUK was eliminated.

The second photo shows the new Vertical ramp and also the available new ball control cover.

Upper ramp original version $125
Upper ramp "transition" version with new cover $135
Upper ramp newest version $125

Radical ramp $125
Radical ramp cover $25

Package deal for the three pieces $260 ($270 if "transition version of upper ramp selected) There are a few of you who have requested additional sets...for each piece above the "package" simply take off $5 per piece.

Shipping for just the Upper ramp or the Vertical ramp $16
Shipping for the upper ramp, Vertical ramp and Vertical ramp cover $20
Shipping for just the Vertical ramp cover $10

Shipping for more pieces than shown above will be handled case by case based on what is ordered.

At this moment I only have 4 of the Upper ramps with the VUK cut-out simply because I was producing them secondly and ran into a bunch of unacceptable plastic that I am returning. I am picking up another order of plastic from another vendor for these on Tuesday.

I have a list but rather than spend the time to work through the list I'll let these go first come first serve as it is my ultimate intention to cover everyone interested.

Thanks....Mark

The original ramps are not colored plastic...rather they were painted on the bottom side and a crappy paint job as well. When I first did the ramps I did produce a couple that were airbrushed painted pink. Real pain in the ass, especially while trying to do a good job, but still try to do a crappy job. The clears were overwhelmingly requested so I simply never did a colored set again. As far as dying them, I could do blue, but in conjunction with the blue request was to do the other in green. Not a lot of ramps done in green and I have yet to even attempt to mix the proper green. There is no stock dye for either the blue or the green so they have to be mixed. I do a lot of blue stuff so I have figured out that mix....haven't figured attempted the green mix yet.....maybe when I get to Grand Lizard. As far as pink or any other color, again no other demand for these colors.

I only did 2 pink painted sets and a couple others in blue. Over 98% of the orders have been clear, so that's all I offer. Genesis is somewhat unique in that it has artwork under the ramps so the clears work well.

#3547 63 days ago

I can tell you that if you use green, the ramp will be teal. To get green you need to mix 1 part green with 2 parts yellow.

Thx for the info. I'll decide between clear and blue and let you know.

Did you see these original WMS ramp molds for sale on Ebay?

Old school stuff. No CNC cutting back then so once molds were made and plastic formed, they used jigs to cut them out and position the mounting holes.

Im told here is where to request Jokerz ramps. Pretty Please.
