I have an extra mirco MM pf from the last run that has the darker, more accurate colors. The print/art is beautiful, flawless, bright. Insert lettering is nice and dark, but the clear kinda sucked this run. So it has a clear on it to compliment a kings game. Big difference. I have another with the stock clear also.
Please contact me if interested.

Ron >> Just a heads up that on pinside it is common practice to list an asking price with anything you are selling. It is a common courtesy to not pit members against each other in a silent auction via email or PM.

Not to mention, the #1 question is always going to be "price?"

#4 6 years ago

Yea. I wouldn't even participate without a listed price even if I were interested. That sort of thing seems underhanded.

Where's the price ????

Ron's a good guy - if you don't know him already he does damn good work restoring pfs.

I can vouge for Ron as well. Class act and does AMAZING work. He's just not all that familiar with pinside... (I envy him in that regard for sure, hehe).

Every playfield I have seen of his looks like glass.... Post a price when you get a chance Ron.

The smart guy pings Ron now, don't wait for price, it may be gone. Early bird gets the worm.

HI guys, thanks for the compliments. I choose not to put prices on my work. There are a lot of people who charge less...and you get a lot less. In the past when I have put a price on something that I spent say 40 hours on, plus the plank, and materials, some folks who either don't know better, or don't know the level of quality, will post that they are outraged by the price, and they know a guy who can do it in his garage for a case of beer.
I have been chasing perfection, by means of pf's for 7 years now FULL TIME! I could make much more by cranking out medium quality work, and more volume. To me that is just like any job. I have found that pinball is an amazing form of pop art. My market, and customers are people who want a pin that is a statement of beauty, built by artisans who are proud to have their last name associated with the work.
Only a small portion of the pin world is interested in what I am trying to achieve, but the good thing is that small portion is enough to keep me busy.
So getting back to the issue, I don't post prices on my work, on the open net, because it can bum me out to see a post about how the price is too much, after I invest so much time and effort. Since it is work of mine, I do take it personally. In fact I take every single job personally. I love my job, and because of that, I don't mind the fact that I make less than half of what I used to make at my old profession, because I am doing what I would do if I were not working. Most of my friends make plenty of money at their jobs, and HATE them. They deal with it as a trade for the bucks. I can totally relate because I did it for over 20 years. So now I make much less, but everyday I get to pursue perfection in pinball art, and establish a name at it, but I still have to pay the rent, eat, and pay for materials.
The MM pf is sold. I have a couple stock mirco MM's that I will sell as is, or I will gladly tweek them out for ya, though the work takes time. Let me know if I can help

Ron does great work and his stuff sells! No need to list price for guys who don't understand.
