Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

Pre- riveted ramp entrance's for me Mark if your starting a survey.
PPS has them in stock now.
Count me in for one of each ramp!

Yeah i'm definitely in for both ramps and the same with the pre - riveted entrance's, although i do have the gear to do it myself i'm happy to pay extra and let the pro do the work
ericpinballfan does PPS have all the ramp decals??
I could only find the decals for the whirlpool ramp
I tried googling for the other 4 (1 being on the metal ramp) and had no hits to the part numbers
31-1656-3-SP
31-1655-1-SP
31-1655-2-SP
31-1656-4-SP (metal ramp decal)

I know I'm pretty late to the party but can someone let me know if ramps for Demo Man is part of this man's awesome work at all?

I would be interested in the plastic trough ramp behind the drop targets in swords of fury. This would be neat in clear so it could be lit from below.

#3807 31 days ago

I could use a center Jokerz ramp.

#3808 31 days ago

I just wanted to thank Freeplay for the repro. ramp I got...
Thank you for your service.

freeplay40 Our friend in France wants to know if you have the pictured ramp(Comet center ramp) and if so, how much is it including shipping to France

No Comet ramps yet. He needs to build a larger heater first that can handle big ramps like this one.

#3814 31 days ago

Comet center ramp!

#3815 31 days ago

But he did say the Comet center ramp and a ramp for Space Shuttle would be some of the first ones,once the larger heater is up and running. Fingers crossed!

The Comet center ramp is the first one I will do..

Gathering up tools and booking a flight as we speak so I can come out and help you get this new heater up and running!

LOL. In addition to trying to get the release of the Black Rose stuff done ASAP I have been flooded with other orders. Meeting with a Laser cutter tomorrow to cut out the entrance protectors for BR to save time. Many will recall that my mother passed away recently. She had two homes which we are now in the process of selling...and a lot of work needs to be done. I expect the work on these two homes to consume most of February......just life.

I can wait for the BR ramps at the moment, i'm temporarily broke AF

#3821 29 days ago

I'm trying to help someone I sold a Dredd to, his ramp is broken. Upon further investigation, it appears a lot of folks are looking for that one. Any plans to do it?
Thanks so much for what you are doing!

Which one?

JD has 4 plastic ramps:
Left ramp (the big one, usually broken at the end)
Right ramp
Blackout ramp
Air raid ramp (small ramp, usually broken at the entrance)

And 2 subways.

I have donor ramps here but at least one of them is too large for me to do yet.

#3826 27 days ago

So how you guys doing??? I know...I know...Where's that damn new heater. So....not taking on anymore new ramps until I build the heater. Black Rose has taken longer than I wanted. I don't make a lot of protectors for ramps but I am making them for Black Rose as an option since they are riveted to the ramp. Generally I just fabricate them myself, but in order to save time I have contracted a local laser cutter to do a bunch of them for me....Hopefully back this week. I'm also faced with selling two homes and doing work associated with those which will interrupt me some as well over the next month. I will continue to fill orders for ramps I have already done, but might be just a bit slower. Big run lately on Space Station ramps a lot of High Speeds!

The heater... My son Aaron's (FAST Pinball) partner is a literal Whiz with electronics. Aaron has said Dave will be able to advise me on some of the electronic setup...This will certainly keep me from wasting time and doing something stupid! I'm ordering the few parts I still need to make the framework to fit into my new machine. Initially I will only use the new machine with the new heater to heat plastic as my existing forming machine can handle the bigger plastic. One I get the heater working I will most likely do the Comet Center ramp first. After that we can all talk. Some I am considering are the Dredd ramps (Have donor ramps here) and the other Radical pieces.

Don't forget to take a stab at the TMNT ramps!

There will be talk i reckon Dredd ramps would be awesome and in demand and i can think of plenty of others, as i'm sure lots of other people can too. Monopoly left ramp is the first that pops into my head, totally awol in the pinball ether that one.
Definitely count me in for both Black Rose ramps with protectors in the near'ish future that's for sure!! just in the process of blowing cash on some parts to bring the project up to mechanical speed first.

#3829 27 days ago

Big effort to help the community thanks in advance for your efforts....

#3830 27 days ago

Mark- Thank You for all you do these past years. Ive purchased many ramps from you, and have had 3 of your ramps show up on machines Ive purchased.
True asset to the pin community.
New heater, what about that monster Hurricane apron ramp?

Hooray for the Radical ramps!!! Thank you!

Really stoked to hear you're working on that Comet center ramp; definitely got a buyer here! Looking forward to it.

Dont forget demoman ramps.

#3835 26 days ago

Yes center ramp please...Mark

#3836 26 days ago

In regards to the Jokerz! center to left ramp, I have a broken ramp that I can send you with all of the pieces. Barring that, I could possibly piece it back together with some fiberglass to be ready to make a mold.

#3837 26 days ago

Indeed! If there is any way you could do the ramp on the right that has the "bowl", that would be amazing.

#3838 26 days ago

Mark, was there any plans to do the small rear ramp/lane plastic for Black Rose?? I think these have been formed like other ramps but in white plastic? This one is also not available to buy, the only one that is available being the subway trough. Although mine isn't too bad structurally (just a few small cracks and a patch that looks like it's been par melted) it would be great to be able to replace with a new one, possibly in regular clear or black?

Could the large heater give hope to Indianapolis 500 owners? A new left ramp and an extended ramp protector from cliffy to add to it would sure help the I500 market.

#3840 25 days ago

BLACK ... would be best visually!

#3841 25 days ago

PayPal tab open and waiting for Comet center ramps!

This IS exciting indeed.

So...busted my ass today cleaning out one of my mother's rentals. So tonight I was just going to take it easy....Then I got another email from Dave (Electronics engineering whiz extraordinaire) about my new heater set up. We have had a few exchanges this week. He even sent me detailed schematics on how to set it up including digital controllers. After a couple exchanges tonight, he says, do you have a minute to talk? I called him and we talked through everything concerning my new heater and how to set it up. I like to figure things out myself, and what I had designed would have worked....but long story short I am total confident with what I need to do and what I need to incorporate into my design to make a first class digitally controlled heater. Can't thank Dave enough.

This is just what I needed to kickstart my ass...

Hi,
I'm from Germany.
I want to restore my Strange Science, but I need all ramps for the playfield without colors.

Do you think there is a way to help me?
