After watching the video at 0.25 speed. IMHO The right wire form needs more support (a mounting point) somewhere between the Groot head and the orb (the wire form and plastic ramp is too bouncy in that area)

Did you add extra wire form to prevent air balls from draining on the left side?

Quoted from Dwboca:

They look great!
Where's my set??

Will be ready to ship by Monday.
Doing more today. Took a mental break over 1/4 speed video. Plastic ramps will flex. This is the last revision to these as I had no issues with previous versions sold or on my machine. There is a mounting arm added that will allow you to adjust the tension on that ramp to your liking. I will post another play video on these intstalled. If you are still questioning the mod it is ok if you pass on it. I just want no issues going forward.

The last concern was airball drains. There is not room for the ball to go under the rails.
See picture…
Working on install instructions. Heres pictures of the mounts. A walk over video and a play video. Judge for yourself. I am limited to 12 to 20 hours a week welding. Good weeks I can get 3 sets done. Worse should be 2. I cant hire another welder as it would drastically increase costs. (Insurance and welding pay rate in Nj is very high). So please understand I will make as many as requested it will be at that 2 to 3 sets a week pace. I also changed the mounts to single arm design so they can be adjusted if needed. I did double arm rigid mounts and they fit my machine, but caused issues on others.

Walk over:

Could you ship to Canada?

#256 1 year ago
Quoted from rwmech5:

Could you ship to Canada?

Yes. As long as it is ups. I can send it as a gift to avoid broker fee of $85.00.

I need to get more hardware. (Bolts etc prior to shipping). But 3 sets done.

Sounds good I'll pm you, thanks.

#258 1 year ago

The final revision looks great. I am still in for a set. Thanks

#259 1 year ago

The cost of metal has gone up $1.83 per rod. I will recalculate and adjust the price for that. Argon increased, but I absorbed that increase for now. But, if it hikes up again I will have to readjust the price again. Fun times….

#260 1 year ago

Supplier costs have increased with argon and steel. I will eat the argon, but cant absorb the material costs of the steel. The screen shot is from over a year ago listing costs of rods used just for one side.

Last year 24 feet of the stainless rod $16.72
Currently 24 feet of the stainless rod $32.70
Cost increased by $31.96. Mod shipped to U.S. $377.

Install:
Machine off for whole process and balls removed:
Remove flashers and lay to the side.
Remove the plastic ramps on both sides including the threaded studs beneath them shown with arrows.
Use included lock nut and install on the exposed screw head on right side as seen in picture.
Remove both sling rubbers and plastics. Remove the screw and plastic post on both slings.
Remove plastic under groot head and note the stacking of plastic spacers on rear post. Remove that post, spacers and screw and lay the spacers out in the order removed.
Remove the left rear plastic behind rocket and the rear post plastic and screw.

Remove the plastic to plastic ramp adapter. Take the new adapter and sandwich them together and place under the remaining ramo holes. Start the two screws carefully and then tighten into place.

Raise playfield:
Install the new 3 inch screws into the now empty inserts. Tighten them all the way to the insert and snug into place. You will now have 4 threaded studs above playfield. 2 at front slings, 1 to the right of groot head and 1 behind rocket.

Lower playfield:
Install the post plastics over the 2 sling studs. Put a washer over the post plastic and then install and tighten regular nuts.
Do the same thing to the stud behind rocket. Then put the plastic post (by groots head) and put the spacers back over stud in the same order removed.
Once all those are tight reinstall the covering plastics and rubber slings. Place a washer on top of the plastics and then install locking nuts. If the stud spins you might need to tighten the screw below playfield a little more. You can also use a screw driver holding the screw under playfield and tighten the nut with your other hand.

Rail install:
The studs by rocket and groot came with 5 washers each. Lay the rails into place and determine the spacing for the stud. Start with 1 or 2 over the studs and see effect of tension. Less washers lower the rail and ramp more raise it.
*********************************
(This was to address video complaint of vibration so its adjustable)
**********************************
All mounting points will need atleast one washer in place. Start all the nuts and screw but dont tighten. Center the ball drops and tighten into place. Then tighten remaining nuts.

Flashers:
There are 4 nuts on the flasher studs. The lower two can be adjusted to level flashers. Install the flasher led then the dome plastics. Tighten the lock washers on flashers and keep the square led flasher centered while tightening.

Appolgizing upfront as I am dropping this as a mod again. The first run I dealt with a few customers having fitment issues on delivery and they required alot of tweaking.. I redesigned the mounting points and made them way more adjustable and I am still having simuliar fitment issues with some customers. I would rather stop at this point then continue. Thanks for the interest, but sometimes (mentally) you have to know when to walk away and that is where I am at with gotg.

#267 1 year ago

That's a bummer man, sorry to hear this. Was looking forward to the upgrades on our game!

#268 1 year ago

I'm sorry to hear this as well but if it's any encouragement or motivation, I received one of these sets and I am extremely happy with them. I know each game probably has some slight variability, especially given the span between production runs at Stern. So for mine, there were just a few small, easy tweaks I had to make but overall they are excellent and look like they were factory installed installed from the beginning. Your design included enough tolerance for owners to adjust the fit to their specific machine and preferences.

I'm very glad I was able to get a set, but bummed for others that won't be able to get them. Just wanted to throw in my own glowing review, if it helps make the case for reconsideration at some point in the future.

#269 1 year ago

I am an owner of these and they add so much to the aesthetic of the game. I'm excited that I got a set.

#270 1 year ago

I am also one of the first owners. Fitment was perfect and am very happy with them.
