    Item description

    I got some sad news the other day. The widow that owns the shop and surrounding property, has finally decided to move into an assisted living facility and sell. After 20 years of PinFoot making and pinball restorations, I've got a couple more months and that's it.

    Needless to say, I've got no where else to make these. I've got enough to last a few more months, but when they're gone, they're gone....unless some other dumb ass decides to make them.

    Do not pass go, do not collect $200...BUY NOW!!

    Price is $25 a set plus shipping. Shipping is Priority Mail. I can get one set in a small box for $7 and up to ten sets in a medium box for $13. Buy ten or more.....FREE SHIPPING!!

    I think they would look nice with a dark/black stain on them. i have all hard floors so don't need any, but cool stuff.

    #3 5 months ago

    I bought 5 sets of these a while back. They’re great for carpets, perfect for moving pins a short distance, and they don’t shift when nudging. The seller is kind of an asshole but the product is legit.

    I bet "He heard that" !

    I second a dark/black stain option

    #6 5 months ago

    Very cool! I may break down and buy some from pinball life.

    #7 5 months ago

    Bought a dozen sets with felt on the bottom back in 2010 and love em. Thanks once again Bryan!

    Why the name change?

    #10 5 months ago

    You, Bryan Kelly, suck!

    I just added two more games than I have pin footies for (i have pin footies for 10 games) so I just swapped everything out to nylon based feet on the EMs and SSs and left the pin footies on the DMD/moderns.

    That being said, I'll be placing my order for 2 sets.

    You can actually call them anything you'd like.

    Quoted from tktlwyr:

    I know.

    #12 5 months ago

    This is how PinFoots start out in life. This is 200 board feet of oak which ends up making 1200 Foots, or 300 sets.

    Like a couple of guys have said above any chance of a black stain version Bryan? I’d love black sets for all my modern Sterns.

    Maybe some day when I get bored and feel like experimenting. For now, cleared, natural oak is the only option. Sorry.

    What about an 'unfinished' option that people can stain/seal to whatever shade they'd like? Less work. Seems like a win.

    WTF!!

    Quoted from epthegeek:

    That, I can easily do. People need to keep in mind, though, this is oak. Oak has a relatively course grain, unlike birch, maple, cherry, etc.. If you stain and lacquer them, I think they'll look fine. If you decide to paint them, they're going to look like you painted oak. In other words, they won't look the greatest.

    he should, he is older than most of the trees that these are made from.... possibly older than the dirt that said trees are growing in....

    #21 5 months ago

    I'd like to offer something different, but these are already labor intensive enough.

    Pilot hole needs to be drilled. Blind hole needs to be drilled. Foot needs to be cut out with hole saw. Foot needs to be edge sanded twice. Top and bottom edges need to be routed. Foot needs to be edge sanded again. Top and bottom final sanding before it gets cleared. And I do these 100 at a time.

    I really have no desire to add more steps to the process.

    Isn't this considered "craft time" at the home you're in? I would think 100+ people in your age group could know these out in a couple hours.

    No one is willing to help. I've yelled at them to get off my lawn one too many times. And I did that in the cafeteria during lunch.

    Can you say exactly what type of oak is used for these? I am concerned about dimpling, as I have heard that is a problem with 'newer' wood. I figured your wood is older, but wanted to check.

    Brad

    If your PinFoot gets dimpled, you have it in the wrong location.

    And yes, my wood is as old as I am.

    light up footies?

    #31 5 months ago

    Do these have any clear on the bottom? I have some older ones and they do not. I just wish they did for the sake sliding on carpet that is high/plush.

    #32 5 months ago

    God when I hear the time it takes and the process it makes me feel worse about tossing 8 sets of these great things. Dont know what I was thinking but I was wrong, need new feet!

    I am fine with the color btw, not like I am looking at them while playing.

    #33 5 months ago

    FUCK NO!!!!!!!!

    Quoted from turbo20lbs:

    They do not. Never have. You should replace your carpet.

    #35 5 months ago

    Before I discovered PinFeet, I’d put scraps of 3”x3” plywood under the feet to protect my floors (true). Once I put pinfooties under all my games, my scores went up, my bald spot got a lot smaller and my dog stopped “scooting” all over the house. Highly recommended!

    #36 5 months ago

    I don't know what it is about these things, but I love them. They kind of 'class up the joint' if you know what I mean, especially when they're on carpet. They stopped my wife from nagging about the deep insets in the carpet - even to the point that she even thinks they look good. I get mine at Pinball Life when making other purchases. You just can't go wrong. Thanks for these Bryan!

    I have these under all of my games and will forever call them pinfooties... I am grandfathered in.

    Yes, sir. Not sure the best way to get them to you, though.

    Anyone ever install felt on the bottom for hard floors? My concern is sometimes the adhesive is weak and slides off. Also, what size is the bottom of these.

    Back in the day, I sold them with felt installed. There wasn't a big demand, so I quit. I forget where I bought the felt but it was online somewhere. Never heard back from anyone about the felt coming off.

    You want to cut the felt 3 1/2" in diameter. That will keep it just less than the bullnose radius on the edge. I used to use a soup can to trace the circles.

    Did they give you the empty cans up there after lunch had been served? I've heard some of those places are nicer than others, I'm glad you found a good one... BUMP for feet.

    Yep, but I just cut a square of felt about 2"x2". I make sure the tilt is tight enough that some dickhead won't try a 12-inch slide save.

    Totally agree. Got a set for all 5 of my games. Wouldn't have it any other way. They are mandatory now.

    I hate to say it, but sometimes bad shit happens at the Foot factory. Thanks to the keen eyes of my quality control staff, 99% of this is caught before it leaves.
