    Just wanted to say a public THANKS to Art from Comet pinball... I was looking EVERYWHERE for a decal, and not only did he dig one up for me, he sent it to me for FREE!!! I love when pinheads help each other out, Personally I have sent out parts to people like this, so nice to have someone do it for me.. there are a LOT of great people on this site!

    Thank you Art!

    And I LOVE the pop bumper caps with led's all around them I ordered from Art, and the mini led strips, I put one under the apron and the LED caps in T3, they look amazing!

    A BIG asset to the hobby.

    Art is the man!

    #4 3 years ago

    They dont come much better than ART!

    #5 3 years ago

    You know you're doing something right when they start a thread about you. Cheers to Art!

    Arter. has the best led in pinball. Period end of the story..

    #7 3 years ago

    Meh, he's alright.

    I've been to Art's house once, his office twice (where I got to poke around in jewelry and LEDs,) and treated to BBQ dinners twice. He's the first Pinsider that I met, and I think I saw him three years in a row at IAAPA or Free Play, but will have to miss this year.

    Art is a class act. Not only do I consider him a friend, but he has also won my business for life.

    He is on the short list of people that I am willing to invite into my personal life.

    Oh F*k, Thank you all...but I am very embarrassed by this....its just me...I have plenty of baggage, but love pinball, pinside, and everyone here Ive met...ok almost everyone......
    Thank you, but its not needed....

    #10 3 years ago

    Looking forward to seeing Art in a few days! He was definitely a big encouragement and source of knowledge to me when I entered the hobby last year.

    #12 3 years ago

    Stop complimenting him!! It makes him read Pinside instead of shipping out my order!!!

    (Thank you Art )

    #13 3 years ago

    Art is THE man!
    I would give him my mother in law (and hopes he keeps here
    Best customer service in the branch, buy with confidence

    Art is the man. It's nice when a great product has a great guy standing behind it. Long live Comet Pinball. Best LEDs going.

    You just entered the hobby last year?!? I had no idea.

    I've been trying to convince Art to come up to SFGE this year. Several rounds are on me!

    #16 3 years ago

    I ordered twice from him in the last week.....great prices and fast shipping!

    #17 3 years ago

    This is nice. I miss the old Good Guy Alerts.

    #18 3 years ago

    great products and service, but it might be my dyslexia kicking in, but I was reading his handle while talking to another Pinsider and called him Oldguypin. (maybe a Freudian slip) implying he's a old guy that likes pins rather than a guy who likes old pins.

    #19 3 years ago

    Art helped me led up my riverboat gambler. Took a lot of time on email with me.
    Loved the results!image.jpeg

    #20 3 years ago

    Art takes a genuine interest in customer satisfaction. He has spent a LOT of time with me as well...educating me about his products.

    Customer service that is 2nd to none.

    #21 3 years ago

    Do I really need to say more? Bambi is extremely happy with Art's help with getting her belt buckle PROPERLY illuminated!

    OK, Thank you, but I cant take this.....I really am a grumpy old bastard that loves pinball.

    Maybe if I bring up religion, politics, and throw some boobs up, the post will implode!

    Thank you for the kind words. Getting Our games looking as good as we want has been my goal.

    I love to see the pictures, and I am grateful to meet some of the best people in the world.
    Pinball is about that to me...One day, maybe Ill share the whole story, but in the last few months, and especially the last few weeks,
    Pinside, and you guys has kept me going....for that no amount of thanks can truly express my heartfelt feelings.

    #23 3 years ago

    Party on old pin guy.

    I have no idea how old Art is, but I picture him like grandpa in Simpsons saying 'back in my day they didn't have flippers'
