    After receiving a couple of boards today (fliptronics and WPC95 power driver) and examining them, I must say these are excellent! Exact form/fit as originals. They even look original. I heartily suggest people buy these boards. You won't be disappointed! Worth every penny.

    Great packing too. Boards arrived safe and sound by US mail.

    Put one of your WPC89 MPUs into a client's BSD just today. Love the pretty much direct Williams copy. Worked great, fair price -- glad you're out there when these boards become too far gone from a cost/benefit analysis to repair.

    Thank You!

    I did update the boards a bit more to better relfect the silk screen. Hoping to get it as close to 1 to 1 as possible.

    The original files I used had all the major data, except for silk screen text position and placement.

    Do you sell these through Marco Spec? I emailed them but it was confusing if they have yours of ones made by Gulf Pinball.
    Basically I want to make several purchases but you do not ship to Canada.
    Who are some distributors I can order from that will ship international?
    Thanks for making these!

    #59 1 year ago

    In the future,will you be offering shipping to Canada?

    Quoted from Malibu-SS:

    I offer shipping to canada now, you just need to email me and I can directly invoice you. The back end merchant i'm using for the store front isn't so friendly to international shipping options.

    Sale prices are still valid as I have not updated anything yet.

    Yes. But in limited quantities

    I'd be interested in one. I believe user Dumbass is working on this as well, maybe no need to duplicate efforts?

    I have the boards done, but each one is taking too long to finish. So I am going to have a company do the SMD work and then send me the boards.

    #70 1 year ago

    Just wanted to give a shoutout to these boards. Just received my wpc 95 cpu and it looks and works great!

    #71 1 year ago

    Please make sys11 interconnect boards!

    #72 1 year ago

    Yeah, this rocks. So refreshing to see more options for keeping our beloved games running. Thanks!

    #73 1 year ago
    Quoted from mdeslaur:

    Please make sys11 interconnect boards!

    Yes, please do make these. Quite often the originals are burnt up badly in the general illumination circuit. Also, these need to be made with "keyhole" mounting slots. There are way too many screws to remove just to get this board in or out.

    Is there a time frame or expected date for the A-12697 WPC89 power driver boards to be back in stock?

    Not super soon I'm afraid, might be end of next month. But I will have 200 89 MPU's 200 89 Drivers, and maybe 200 WPC-S MPU's in stock at once.

    Also working on WPC95 Drivers and more fliptronics II boards.

    Bought a few boards from Pinball Basement. They are very, very nice. They look like brand new NOS boards.
    Thanks, Charlie.

    Are you planning to make any WPC-89 sound boards? I am about to send a couple of these to be repaired and I was thinking how nice it would be to just buy a couple new ones.

    #78 1 year ago

    this is amazing!! wish you success on this as it will help lots of people.

    Thank you

    #79 1 year ago

    Great to see these!

    It's in the works. Right now I'm breaking in my wave flow so I can start pumping out boards a lot faster

    They look nice, you must of bought the last ones I have been wanting to buy off his web site for weeks now and all I see are "SOLD OUT" on about everything.

    #82 1 year ago

    Are you planning on making the boards better than the original design?
    do not get me wrong, it is REALLY great to have your boards as an option but I would like to see at least these few things:

    -More 12DC and other voltages power connectors on the driver board for running mods
    -Graphic board with the ability to power a plasma DMD AND newer screens that use much lower voltages that way this is freed up on the driver
    -No more batteries please! make the boards with NVRAM already in them or with other battery options, more modern, leak proof. TNT amusements uses watch batteries to replace these (like in a PC motherboard).
    -Buff up all the portions of the board that were under spec and overall improve the efficiency of space and heat dissipation, etc.

    am I dreaming!?

    But all in all I would still buy your board now if needed one, I just wished I had the options mentioned above.

    #83 1 year ago
    Quoted from Pinball_Basement:

    The current product for sale is 1 : 1 williams design. Any flaws with that design are still present. When I go back further and do the williams 3-7 driver boards, I will update that design and fuse the special solenoids as that is a safety issue.
    I can possibly look into making a second version that would address this issue.

    #84 1 year ago

    OMG where has this been all my life (OK the last 10 years).
    I need a DMD board but just about everything is sold out.

    I put everything down to zero stock so I can get caught up. I'm about to have 100+ of every item, I just don't want to get behind in orders until it's ready.

    #86 1 year ago

    OK thanks for the heads up. Please update when available again. Thanks!

    Pinball_Basement how is the catch up going? are you getting ready to take orders on WPC89 power drivers yet? My TAF is deader than the graveyard.

    #88 1 year ago

    curious myself

    Quoted from lurch:

    I ran into a small permit problem with my wave solder, got that resolved and am prepping the driver batch again. I want these out of my basement as much as you guys do

    Also following this thread for my Dr Who WPC89 boards. Thanks for making these available .

    Since pinside was down...I have to ask...any WPC89 power drivers?

    #92 1 year ago

    yup, looks like 2 in stock!!

    #93 1 year ago

    Placed an order for a WPC89 driver board 2 weeks ago, website said 8-10 days to ship. No shipping notification, no response to email inquiries....anyone heard from them lately??

    #94 1 year ago

    I understand he's very swamped with orders. It may take a bit of time to get things made and shipped.

    #95 1 year ago

    I wonder if he is considering classic Stern/Bally MPU boards (MPU-100 MPU-200, AS-2518 etc). I know Weebly and allteck are making their versions but in some circumstances,they are just not quite right especially in the area of sound. I would love the identical board for them.

    Quoted from SuperPinball:

    I suppose that would depend on if he's got the layout films for them.

    You can get a Two Bit score Dash 35 board it's identical to the -35 if you want to get authentic right now. There's lots of spares on the market as well that are perfectly usable too, especially from people that put new boards in their games just because or because they're selling it.

    I am in the same boat, placed an order over 2 weeks ago. Reached out a few times and no word.

    #98 1 year ago

    Sorry for any delays, have all a large amount of orders right now and am working through testing boards and prepping for shipping.

    Will respond to more emails when I'm back in town on sunday

    #99 1 year ago

    I will be closing the store down for two weeks once I'm caught up to retool new machines and get ahead.

    Hey everyone, dropped off a large number of drivers over lunch, will have all orders fulfilled by the end of this weekend as I get caught up on issues that popped up in my personal life.

    I did have one particularly angry customer who threatened to post to pinside, sorry about that delay, sorry Matt. I'm doing my best to get all my products out. I'm developing faster and faster methods of testing and manufacturing with every passing week.

    These are the best products out there for Williams machines and I stand by the time it takes to test these and provide the best products on the market.

    There is nothing rotton about these boards except for delivery times, but that is changing.
