Best of luck with your procedure.

Also, thank you for your work keeping these awesome games running. It's heartbreaking to see a machine unplayable because of a chunk of plastic. And that brings me to my request...

I would put my name down for a Black Belt ramp, hoping you would consider a run of those. I just read through the thread and bet there were 8 others.

Quoted from Freeplay40:

I do have a donor ramp for the Comet Corkscrew and hope to do it very soon.

I'd be in for a Comet corkscrew, along with a Black Belt ramp!

Quoted from Freeplay40:

I was visiting my son this last Saturday in Gig Harbor to see his new house. I originally was going to spend the night as the following day he was hosting the committee that handles the NW Pinball Show in June. One of the attendees brought a Black Belt ramp with hopes of hooking up with me. He left the ramp with my son who I will see soon.

Dude! Such great news. Put me down for the corkscrew, cycle jump and the Black Belt ramp when you get around to it!

Quoted from Freeplay40:

Just got home from the NW Pinball Show. Going back in the morning. My son (Aaron with FAST Pinball) was holding a box for me that another Pinsider, MBECKER had left with him. In the box is a perfect proto-type Black Belt ramp that he is loaning me for make a mold from. My biggest concern has been whether or not I could do this ramp on my current setup or whether it would have to wait for the new machine. Good news is that I can do this one with my current machine. I only know of a small handful of people that would like this ramp made...so two things. If you are interested, let me know so I can get a good list started...and...secondly, spread the word that this is coming so I can at least sell enough to make it worth the time and effort and keep the cost reasonable!
Thanks.....Mark
PS...I am now working on Pinbot and will probably do this one at the same time.

Great news! I'm in for the Black Belt ramp for sure!

Quoted from Freeplay40:

Once everyone is covered, I will move on to the next two projects (favors to the community!) that a few Pinsiders have been anxious for. The Transporter and Black Belt.

Heh, wife and kids think I'm a little nuts from the happy dance I just did!

Soon my bretheren.

I think this must be the most F5'd thread on Pinside.

Efforts so appreciated Mark! I love hearing about the process. What kind of cnc cut material are you thinking, aluminum or steel? Or is that too expensive?

Beautiful! I guess you did the test-fit already? Oh man I'm excited to play that game!

Today's a great day! Thanks Mark, the Black Belt ramp arrived today, absolutely beautiful as usual! Install was easy, just had to elongate one of the screw holes a tiny bit. Now that the game plays, it's time to put some real time and effort into cleaning it up and making it play as good as it is going to. Lots to do, I'm afraid, but as always the journey is as much fun as the destination!

Thanks once more, I'll probably still hit this thread a couple of times a day for a while I think, it's become a real habit for me.
