Just wanted to explain the delays in finishing up Star Gazer playfields (a few left on pre orders) & starting Seawitch playfields. For years I have had a bad left knee, which got cleaned up. The last number of years I have had bad foot pain. After being crippled up the last 3 weeks on my right leg (foot to back), & getting numerous x-rays. They finally confirmed I have a bad right hip, & some lower back problems. On top of that I got shingles, & that sucked the life out of me. I have had right foot injections the last 3 months, & that seems ok.

So i'm slowly recovering & living with the pain. Things will start moving slowly ahead the rest of the year, & I won't be at any shows. It could be months or years with my Canadian Medical Plan.

If your looking for backglass that I do. They get done pretty quickly. The last few Star Gazer playfields are being done, & surplus ones. Seawitch playfields are almost ready to start this spring. The last restoration Sorcerer playfields with overlays are done, if you are missing yours please contact me asap.

I have not asked for any more deposits on new playfields the last few years because of my delays & slow production. Just want to satisfy & end my playfield restorations (finished with direct ink & overlays), & finish up new playfield production.

So thanks to my customers patience over the years. Please contact me here for more info on your playfield status.

Hope you get better soon - your work is pretty awesome. Is there a list for any unclaimed Stargazers?

Sorry to hear John, get well soon, you have been an inspiration to the pinball world with all you have done, but your health comes first, take care and thanks for what you have already given us and glad to hear your still doing glass and possibly smaller things.

Just a update that i'm no longer having a web site. I didn't renew my host which was a nightmare. Lots of crap emails even under my domain that flooded my box. So I have no access for many months. Please reach me here on pinside or my outlook account, my first/last name in lower case. I continue on the slow pace of new playfields, & much quicker new glass titles on demand (titles I have done). After months i'm still waiting to see specialists here in Canada, with our health system.

Hi John,
Sorry to hear of your health issues, I hope you make a speedy recovery, but it sounds like the health care system up there is slow.
Let me know how you are doing.
My Lucky Strike & Bowl A Strike Restorations are moving slow but coming along. I cant wait to get the backglasses installed in them.
What are your latest projects ?
Take Care,
John C.
