GUNS N' ROSES

I was changing out one of my dye baths this week and I've decided to do one more run of the Guns n' Roses ramps. I can pretty much do the R ramps (red) at any time on demand, but I rarely use a yellow dye necessary for the G ramp....So if anyone is interested in getting in on this run, let me know so I can see how many I need to make.

#4102 3 months ago

I would be in for all the Judge Dredd Ramps from whoever makes them I Love our JD

#4103 3 months ago
Quoted from MikeSinMD:

If anyone did offer the Indianapolis 500 ramps, it would be cool, I think, to do them in some different colors. Maybe red, or yellow? But really, I would just be happy to have them in clear!

While I had the game, I took the left ramp to freeplay40 to evaluate. It was just slightly larger than current setup allows. I had talked about building my own mold to be used with the the new setup when complete, but I ended up selling the game before that. I do have a couple NOS right ramps if you are looking for those. Just send me a PM.

#4104 3 months ago
Quoted from o-din:

Wow, I just counted a total of five pieces if you include the center return and right side return extension. Didn't realize there were so many.
It looks like my whirlpool on the center one might be a little cracked, so I will wait until you at least have that one done.

I would definitely order the Radical ramp piece that includes the whirlpool. I'm hoping someone will make the ramp decals because I'd order more of the ramp pieces

Are there any independence day center ramps in the wings, I know alot of people are in desperate need.

#4106 3 months ago

Hey Mark, what is current status on all the radical ramps ?

I have a double restore that is about to start and fresh full ramps would be awesome!

#4107 3 months ago

Any talk of doing the three ramps in Goldeneye? I am trying to do a restore and have been having trouble all summer to get replacements for them. Keep doing great work and thanks!

#4108 3 months ago
Quoted from Brewnut:

I second this.

#4109 3 months ago

Was able to get my ramps installed. Wow does that make a huge difference! Thanks again!

I'm taking it easy right now enjoying a little summer (it can be short here in Washington). Working on a lot of non pinball projects that I have let go too long as well as dealing with getting about 10-12 large maples removed from a piece of river property I have. Squeezing out time to play on the quad as well....and processing orders for what I've already produced. Honestly, this COVID deal has been good for business with so many spending more time at home and restoring machines.

I've changed the design somewhat on my new machine and have the materials now to do that.

I have a local friend who donated the ramps for the first Radical ramps and plan on hitting him up for the upper two, so once the machine is operational, I will secure those immediately....Comet center and Radical will most likely be first, but actually several will come quickly.

I am going to cruise as long as the weather holds....Will work on the new machine as time permits now and then hit it hard when Summer ebbs.

looking fwd to Radical full sets once you can make them happen!!!!

#4112 3 months ago

Hi, any progress on the TMNT ramp? No rush but curious if would someday be available.

#4114 3 months ago

I read somewhere that you may be able
to make the Who Dunnit elevator ramp and scoop.
Count me in!
Restoring a W?D as we speak.

#4115 3 months ago
Quoted from pb456:

If this is the right place to put it, I'd be interested in replacement ramps for Surf'n'Safari. Most critically the long right yellow ramp and the red 'whirlpool' ramp.

Quoted from HydrogenHuman:

Hopefully one day some Surf 'n Safari ramps and the whirlpools will be made!

I would be interested in these as well, is there just not enough interest to have these made? I imagine most surviving machines need these replaced

Just saw a post in the "Space Station Club...Members only" post here on Pinside. Pinsider pin-pimp who did the injection molded Cross Over ramp for Transporter, has the specifications for the Space Station Upper Playfield and is beginning work to reproduce this piece....Awesome news!

Mailed out the payment for my corkscrew ramp. Cant wait to replace my broken part.

#4118 59 days ago

Any update on Comet center ramps? I know they've been discussed for a bit

#4119 58 days ago

They are top of my list....still. I have been just filling orders and working on a piece of property while summer hangs on. Good news is that the trees are all down and my last bit of work has to do with getting my back hoe started!...just let it sit too long. Looks like summer will end quickly now with storms forecast for the weekend. My focus will be back on pinball next week!

#4120 54 days ago

Interested in Fire! If they ever get made

#4121 53 days ago
Quoted from Shabazz18:

Which part of Fire! ?

#4122 53 days ago

Freeplay40 - are there any Pinbot rear ramps in stock? I just needed to know how much effort to put into cleaning my current ramp!

I have the lift ramp already and it's waiting to be installed.

#4123 53 days ago

Just got a Williams Hurricane yesterday. Bottom ramp is functional but the mounting taps are really beaten up.
Dismounting and cleaning has me worried. Heard this was the place to possibly get one made. Heard something about waiting on new oven or something.

When you are setup I would be interested in atleast the bottom ramp.

Pinbot transparent blue/red ramps are again sold out. I will be making some in the next week or so.

I made the center ramp for Hurricane a few years ago. Seriously doubt I will ever make the other ramps.

#4126 53 days ago

Hey freeplay any thought of doing the Data East Batman main ramp? I'm on the hunt for one and all the used ones I see for sale are blown out at the same exact spot.

#4127 53 days ago
Quoted from truemagoo102:

Not familiar with that ramp but maybe sometime in the future. I have a pretty big list of ramps I am already committed to, so to be honest, probably at least a year away.

#4128 53 days ago
Quoted from Davi:

I have also a question for lrosent345, JodyG, and Freeplay40.
Is there any chance for the Air Raid ramp for Judge Dredd?
It's a small ramp (probably the smallest I have seen), and almost always broken at the entrance.
Thanks.
[quoted image][quoted image]

none of the ramps are available for jd, never could figure out why. Very popular game you just can't get any parts for.

#4129 53 days ago
Quoted from BertoDRINK1:

yup jd here too. i currently have 2 machines, so loaner ramps would be no problem.

The original molds for judge dread are sitting here in my shop

*guy who makes ramps from molds*
*guy has original mold*

This seems like a match made in heaven!

#4133 51 days ago

That and we also make molds. Any I have made ramp molds. I brought the transporter crossover ramp into the world. Free play 40 know us!

#4134 51 days ago

Roadshow and high speed and pin bot here too

#4135 51 days ago
Quoted from pin-pimp:

I didn't know the originals were in existence still...I made the Road Show ramps this summer.

Isn't doing anyone any good just sitting there.

#4137 51 days ago
Quoted from pin-pimp:

All three have been made.
Horribly late to the party here.
Did you just acquire the stash and make a deal with Rick?

#4138 51 days ago

Those molds have been here for years. Long story but PPS does own them

#4139 51 days ago

I don’t own them. It’s out of my control unless someone steps up to the plate and wants to run them. They are big and a deal would have to be made with PPS. I build injection molds for a living. I don’t run parts. We have built many molds for PPS but it’s not my bread and butter work for my business.

#4140 51 days ago

Ugh... Been waiting for Judge Dredd ramps for years. I was lucky enough to score ($$$) a NOS large ramp a couple years ago before they all sold out from Australia, but the other 4 ramps are unicorns. I really wish someone would make them.

damn shame someone is sitting on all this stuff, but some of these ramps will never ever see the light of day.

#4142 51 days ago

There is more to the story. It’s more of a matter of the mold is EFN huge and nobody wants to run it. Trust me I’ve been trying to get these made. Free play knows some of the story. I’ve sent some emails and called free play tonight. I’ve got a angle for these judge dread parts. It’s also not just forming the parts the trimming fixtures needed can be equally challenging. And there is none so those have to be made.
It’s not only the ramp molds, the JD subways and a few other vac formed parts are with it.

#4143 51 days ago

I have JD tools too. The originals should have water lines going in and out. I should check mine.

#4144 51 days ago

Pretty sure they do. I can post pic tomorrow

#4145 50 days ago

I think this is JD. 5 parts

Some one see if you can ID the ramps in first pic in the post with the 4 pics

#4148 50 days ago

I was looking in the Judge Dredd manual, and it appears to me there are two other top side ramps not on this mold.

This mold looks super easy to separate into individual ramps. These pics are great, thanks for sharing!

#4150 50 days ago

This one I’m not sure what it is
