I got an email in German from dhl today. No idea what it says, but i'm guessing my pf is on the way. Stoked!

#53 2 years ago

I too just got an email. To the poster 2 above, contact Peter. I think I read they sometimes run a couple extra.

#54 2 years ago

I'm still waiting for an email. Hoping to get mine soon.

#55 2 years ago

I checked my emails and spam folder also and no email from DHL. I must be in second batch also.

Hello to all

Sorry the delay but we have had problems with clear coating.
The problems are solved and the next laod of playfields is clear coated.
I have been to the paint shop today and saw them. The are still a bit to fresh to transport them,
I will fetch them on Monday the 18th. We will get them packed and sent out before the holidays.
I appologize the delay, but I didnt want to send them out just like that.

Regards from Hamburg

Looks sweet Terry. When do you want help bringing up the HS up to the shop?

#65 2 years ago

Hey Mike, thanks, probably going to start the swap later next month. Jan /Feb should be a good time of the year to work on it.

#66 2 years ago

Was this 1038.00 US or 845 euro? Thought it less before i got the billing.

When I paid, exchange rate had me pay total of 915.usd

#68 2 years ago

Wow, really? Amazing.
Mine is on the way, and I'm curious now what our customs will do.

Im not sure what the States is like but they are thieves up here in Canada!

Huh. Do you think they would if, say, I took one up in my car and crossed over the border to give it to you? (I'm not close, but I've never been up there! What the hey, I'm more curious.)

#73 2 years ago

Well the tax is based on what you pay for it. So if it was a gift say, im not sure what they would charge if any. If i was able to get Peter to put that i paid say 300.00 on the paperwork, i would only be paying the tax on that but unfortuatly he has a business to run and has to be legit.

It looks awesome! I am so happy I made the call. Yep. Got $150 duty charge on delivery. Figured I would, but still...worth every penny.

#75 2 years ago

All our Canadian friends getting the playfields first? They look great guys.

Got mine this weekend. I was out of town, and the PF was delivered on a day temps hit 60-degrees, and then fell the next day (high) to 22. Ugh. I'm hoping the temp changes didn't cause future issues in the clear.

So, because of that, I noticed something on mine I was wondering if others have, or what -
Is the "Super Jackpot" (clear) insert look the same as the (clear) RPM inserts?

Here is a picture of mine that I took last week when it came in. Looks like the Super Jackpot is the same insert.

Ill have to take a look at mine when i get home and check out the inserts. Hoping to start my swap within the next couple of weeks.

#80 2 years ago

Hello to all

Yes the Super Charger insert is the same as the RPM inserts, both are clear #13

So im pretty bummed ! Looked at my new Getaway playfield and when i run my hand along the playfield i can feel that some of the inserts have raised ever so slightly. Not much, but you can feel it. Doesnt look like they have cracked the clear but this is not good. It was perfect a month ago when i got it. Anyone else having this issue ? Is this normal ? I know Paul has issues with his BOP. I really wanted to start the swap soon but not now.

It's not the inserts raising, but it's the clearcoat settling. Wood is soft, so that when the clear settles, it cures down some, whereas the inserts are plastic and harder, and the clear doesn't shrink there as it cures.

My Getaway does it. So did my Whirlwind and TAF from CPR.

#83 2 years ago

So how long does it take to settle? And after that can you reshoot more clear to make it smooth?

Not sure to either of those - I would ask kruzman over in this thread: https://beta.pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/nosnew-playfields-available-for-octnov
He'll know the answer.

So did you just use them as is and did you notice any ball trvel when going over the inserts ? Also worried about premature wear from the ball travelling over the high spots.

They're not used in games right now - they're wall-art.

My TZ field, which WAS re-cleared by HEP, had this effect as well - but not until AFTER I put it into my game. I don't notice any ball-travel issues with it. (Of course, though, my game is super fast. If the ball is going slow enough to watch, you ain't playing it right.)

This happens a lot. It is really bad on some and not as bad on others. What really sucks is it happens to my work about 50% of the time on reproductions. even after waiting 5 months after it was made, even though I wait 2 weeks between coats, and 3-4 weeks after the last coat to sand it glass smooth. the wood keeps sinking or will move from the temp change. I have even redone pf's many many times to have it happen again. some pfs!!!! the nos pf's from 1995 and older only do it ocasionly, and it is when they are not that great to start with. what happens to my clear, is nothing like what happens to the stock repros. I had a couple titles a couple years back that were so drastic. FT was the worse. The quality of wood used now is way difrent than what was used before G W bush sr did the white owl legislation for the geezers out there. now some pfs are a paper thin sheet of maple on black gum wood which sucks, lord it sucks. wade krauss uses a very expensive wood that dosent do this phenomina.

I will say once the pf is installed the ball sort of levels it out quite a bit, but I am talking about the effect on my pf's not on stock reproductions.b
The biggest reason I moved up to 8 coats, and to wait to full cure before recoating, was to make a harder surface to battle this effect I talked to developers at PPG, and they helped me understand the material I use was designed to be used as a 2 coat surface. so to build it up, I better make dam sure it is done cureing. If I put more clear on it, the middle wont be as hard as it could be, and it will eventually harden, but a couple months down the line.

So that is what I have concerning that. hope it helps a little. half of my pf's are like glass, and half you can slightly feel the inserts. (sometimes just the big ones)

#88 2 years ago

Thanks Ron. I really appreciate you responding. So would you recommend just installing it or should I have it recleared ? Also, would adding some epoxy underneath to the inserts help it from getting worse ?

#89 2 years ago

Didn't we enter into a Free Trade agreement with the EU in 2017? Just wondering if that was reflected in the customs charges?

#90 2 years ago

well epoxy under the back of the inserts will never hurt. I do it to any pf sys 11 or older!!! I dont think they are moving, its just that you have 2 different materials with way different mass and they are expanding and contracting at different speeds and amounts, with a shinny surface

I dont mean to bogart this thread. I just wanted folks to know what to expect.
as for your question on what to do, it is so depending on your direction and expectations. some people who do clearcoats will knock out the job in 2 weeks. I used to do it in 6, and that is way too fast in my opinion.
If you get it cleared, you want to wait 3 months, and what I do is sand off the existing clear asap to hurry the process. I am accepting jobs. In the winter I dont clear wen it is below 25 out because I cant keep my shop above 75 for 48 hours, so I can never say how long it will take. Obviously I try to do them as soon as I have the oppertunity because I want to get paid and I dont get paid till the job is ready to ship.
BUT, here is the big part. on the pf's with the worst examples (and if you search the old pinside material you will see the pics I posted of a FT gold with massive insert and wood grain issues after 4 months) I sanded off the clear, i waited a long time (over 4 months) and I cleared slowly. 2-3 weeks between sets of 2 coats. * coats total, and after the last coat I wait 3-4 weeks, sand the whole thing level 800 to 3000 grit wet block sand by hand. So it is still going to have a little of that effect down the line, but MUCH less. plus it will last much longer. In a production enviroment it is impossible for them to do what I do (and good for me because repro's are 80-90% of my work)

so that is my opinion. other customers of mine may want to chime in

I dunno who 'we' are (North America? Canada? US? ) Others here mentioned getting a tax bill from customs.
I did not. So, not sure.

I got hit with a $150.00 bill from the good ole Canadian government when i received mine.

Is it good measure to have one of these play fields cleared again or is the clear better than the other pf manufacturers?

Hello to all

It depends on what you are expecting? If you want a show pin, then send your playfield to Kruzman. If you want a pin to play the hell out of it,
then you can install our playfield as it is. We have heard from all over the world, Collectors, Restorers and Industry, that our playfields, plastics and decals are the best, world wide. Once the clear coat starts to settle, you will see the insert surrounding, you will have 2 or 3 small dust inclosures, but for game playing and
enjoying pinball, they are perfect. Our Quality Controll is high, if the clear didnt turn out nicely, then we sand it down again. We love manufacturing top quality
pinball parts and enjoy having many satisfied Customers world wide. That is our pasion and we are proud of.
Here is a link to our Facebook, scroll down and enjoy clear coat test video and verios other videos showing production steps.
We will post the next video soon.

We hope that we will find some time to get our home pages started, it will be running under www.buthamburg.de
We will also have an English version.
