how long until the skeeball ramp is ready? I dont mind waiting to save on combined shipping. I also dont mind paying for everything in advance.

#2176 1 year ago

Yeah, cycle jump/skeeball. I've heard it called both and I'm just in the habit of calling it the skeeball shot.

If I want both, can I still pay $90 for the corkscrew now and the balance for the other when its ready?

#2182 1 year ago
Quoted from BigB:

I need a price total for two corkscrew ramps with shipping. How and who do I pay? Thanks.

Maybe PM for combined shipping, but these were the payment details:

Quoted from Freeplay40:

If you only want the Cork Screw ramp now you can send payment via Paypal to Freeplay40@yahoo.com
Please don't forget your Pinside name! And be sure I get your address.
Transparent Orange Cork Screw Ramp $80
Shipping $10

Now that you know prices can I pay for both? It'd help offset the cost of making them.

That Kydex looks tits! I'm down for that and a translucent orange corkscrew ramp. If only you repro'ed plastics, then I'd stop having broken Arnie plastics in my T2.

#2280 1 year ago

freeplay40 When I order mine you can include a smoked ramp and I can take pix of it in game, then I can send it off to whomever orders it (I obviously wont need 2 ramps)

#2285 1 year ago

If you can't let me know, I don't mind paying a refundable deposit on the second ramp if you don't trust me (I am an internet stranger!)

I'm super exited to have my comet up to 110%! Let us know how everything else goes, and I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say we hope you're on the mend quickly!

#2300 1 year ago

They look amazing, let me know when I can pay and get them, I'll be sure to take lots of pictures for you. I'll probably figure out a way to light up the corkscrew like I lit up the comet on the shooter entry:

Sorry for the crummy cell phone pix.

#2306 1 year ago

Mannnnnn that red has me rethinking the Kydex ramp.

#2311 1 year ago

Dude, those look amazing. You ok with me buying 2 motorcycle jump ramps then reselling the one I like less? I really can't decide between the red and the Kydex.

#2313 1 year ago

If you could make the pop bumper caps in that same red it'd be a no brainer.

#2319 1 year ago

I'm sold on the red. I thought I'd be a stickler for the Kydex but it just looks too freaking cool. Please PM me when I can paypal you for the 2 ramps. You don't happen to know where I can get replacement screws for the corkscrew do ya? I have one on each end holding it in, its how I got the machine.

#2322 1 year ago
Quoted from jaytrem:

Malenko, I really like the way those extra lights light up the Comet plastic. Thanks for sharing the pics, no doubt have to steal your idea.

Steal away! I ran the wires to the underside of the PF and tapped a GI wire. The wires run near the one way gate leaving the shooting lane, its poking out in the top pic, but its completely covered by the Comet plastics. I'm probably going to find a way to light up the red ramp without over doing it, same for the new corkscrew.

I was going to buy 2 but I think I'm going to have to limit myself to just the red, I have a ton of other little things to buy and its starting to add up (like replacing all the star posts in my comet)

#2335 1 year ago

oh, so just pay you? I'll do that on my lunch break! Red cycle jump and the orange corkscrew!

#2338 1 year ago

Just paypalled you $155 wooooooo hooooooo

Now I just need to replace the pop bumpers and my comet will be pretty much complete

#2364 1 year ago

Ramps showed up today, decided to add more LED lightning around the new clear cycle ramp.

#2366 1 year ago

oh I took pix too, forgot to post them. I absolutely LOVE these ramps.

I dont have a pinbot, but I'd take a "messed up" ramp over you tossing it out.

My center ramp in comet was the only thing NOT broken. LMK when you do TMNT

#2894 10 months ago

Not ramp related, but can you make the curved plastic piece for LW3 that prevents airballs over the center targets?

#3011 9 months ago

My comet looks so good thanks to your ramps. Better than OEM.

#3015 8 months ago

Any chance of a Getaway U turn ramp thingie?

#3019 8 months ago

U turn ramp COVER thingie, my bad I missed a word. The plastic that covers the U turn takes a beating from balls going airborne from the "Super Charger" My plastic is dented in so bad its actually curved in. Im amazed its not cracked through. I can take a picture if you'd like. Was just an idea, I know you cant do TMNT ramps cause they are too big so I was thinking of small pieces that would be great to have.

#3030 8 months ago
Quoted from Freeplay40:

Is that the piece in the upper left corner?

Yes, top left corner

Even though my comet main ramp is in pretty great shape, I'd prolly still pick up one from you for when the inevitable happens or change it out cause you'll have a cool color for it to go with my orange corkscrew and red skee ball ramps I got from you.

#3368 4 months ago
Quoted from o-din:

I'm new to this thread but am going to buy Comet ramps. Just trying to decide if I should get the red or black cycle ramp. Or perhaps both?

I almost bought both, but I decided on red and don't regret it one bit. Attached pix of the orange corkscrew and the red skeeball (aka cycle) ramp

Do you plan on doing T2 ramps? I'm only asking because I'm about to start a play field swap and would be more than happy to send you the stock ramps while I do the top and bottom side tear down, cleaning, and swapping

#3567 49 days ago

I dont need any, mine are fine I was just tryin to help others
