    Yes I’ll be there, If you want to meet up and grab some just let me know. I wanted to get a booth but I wasn’t sure how much inventory I’d have at that time.

    Sent pm. Looking for 3

    Sorry for the late response. I will be at PAGG all day Sunday. I sent you a PM. Thanks!

    I’ve still not received mine. Ordered several weeks ago. Update?

    Good morning, your order was shipped out last tuesday. I will PM your USPS tracking number to you this evening.

    #106 11 months ago

    No issue. I’m sure it will arrive today. Forgot about holiday. Most Cali orders take 5 business days. Thanks.

    #107 11 months ago

    I just PM'd your tracking number.

    Thanks

    #108 11 months ago

    I just received and these are very well done. I’ll have time later to set up and take pictures. This will look much neater than towels and sheets.

    I believe you would do well at one of the bigger shows. It’s always the postage that is the killer. I still see value because I have cut my own drawer liners. Let’s leave it at that. These are worth it.

    #109 11 months ago

    I received all 3 of mine and am very happy with the quality and fit. While I will still use my towels and throw blankets that are themed with my pins, these go down under them and actually keep the towels and blankets from sliding off which they had a tendency to do. And when I am working on one of my pins, I remove the towel or blanket on the pin next to it and I have a nice padded, no slip surface to put my tools and parts on. Very happy with my purchase!

    Thanks ! I’m glad you were happy with them. And yes, shipping is a killer, there’s no way around it because each mat weighs over a pound. Thanks again!

    Thanks again calf demon and if you decide you want more in the future I’m in Santa Clarita once a week. I could just drop them off and save shipping!

    #112 11 months ago

    Great product. My socket set slid off the glass right before this product arrived. Never again. Only bought one just for maint. Great fit and holds tools in place. Towel method always slid off with time.

    #113 11 months ago

    This is an excellent product. Very fair price and super exciting that I can now use my machines to properly hold parts while shopping other machines.

    Small warning that the wide body version doesn't fit the Willams Scorpion machine I have, but that is probably expected since it is stupid wide.

    #114 11 months ago

    Forgot to mention the logo is recessed so balls can be placed there and will not slide out. Nice. Well thought out...

    #115 11 months ago

    Are there plans to sell different colors?

    #116 11 months ago
    Quoted from Nhpolarbear:

    Yes, I have ordered some samples of the blue. Hopefully within a month or so I can have that option available

    Got mine. So far so good

    Will you be at the Houston Show? What about INDISC?

    Good Morning, at this time we don't have any plans to be at any shows outside of CA. We are looking into having a space at Golden State Pinball Festival and INDISC. I will definitely keep you updated as the dates get closer. Thank you!

    #123 10 months ago

    We have gotten quite a few requests for orders from outside the US. If you would like to make an order please PM me so that i can get an actual shipping quote back to you before you place your order as we cannot offer our domestic shipping rate for international orders.

    #124 10 months ago

    If you purchased a custom length please remember that the turnaround time from the decal shop is about a week. I will fill the standard and widebody orders as they come in. Thank you and happy thanksgiving!

    I’ve had quite a few people ask if we could cut sizes just to be used as a work mat so I’ve added the variation into the store. Shipping domestic is $5 dollars each. Thank you for all the orders on Black Friday I think we sold more in that one day then we’ve sold in the last three months combined! Happy holidays everyone!

    Got my order today from BF. Was honestly a little worried because I hadn't ordered any prior to this... so it was sight unseen.
    They arrived today; packed well... and enough for all my machines.

    I was only able to install the Pin2k version because I had already collapsed my pinball machines in preparation for a new garage door install (hopefully later this week). Looks like it fit like it should.

    pinshield - suggestion:
    Use plastic stretch wrap instead of elastic hair bands to keep them rolled up. There was a noticeable "compression" defect in the Pin2k mat I unrolled. Maybe it's just temporary and will "decompress" over time - At least I hope so.

    I'd also suggest a label somewhere on the pinmat for sizes. As you know; I ordered three different sizes... and when I have a pinball party; they'll be all removed at the same time. I just don't want to have to figure out which mat is which thru elimination. ;D Maybe a label on both ends (top and bottom).

    Other than that; these look to be good quality and will do a very good job of keeping the dust off my pins.

    it will, though i understand that point too

    Thanks for the order Zitt, I have been looking into other ways of keeping the mats rolled up and I will test wrap a couple in the plastic stretch wrap for a few weeks and unwrap to make sure they will go back to original shape. Thanks for the recommendation. Your mats should not have a permanent indentation from the elastic band and if for some reason it doesn't decompress, PM me and ill get another one out to you. I will also be getting with the decal shop to work on getting the sizes labeled and pressed on each mat. I always appreciate any feed back i can get!

    Colors: Red and Blue

    Cool, can't wait till mine shows up from the BF order. Should be in the next couple of days then!

    They decompress Zitt. I had the same concern but all good.

    Quoted from MJW:

    Correct. I withdraw my "complaint" as it did decompress when unrolled and left on the machine.
    Not the ideal "new out of box" experience; so maybe a short note in the pinmat box explaining the issue - would eliminate any concerns.

    Hey Zitt, I always keep mine rolled up with the elastic band. When I am ready to use it it lays back flat.
