    Quoted from chuckwurt:

    Is shipping really this expensive? Just bought 2 and was charged 19 bucks for shipping. If so, so be it, just seems like a lot for two of these that probably fit in one tube.
    Thanks!

    shipping has gone up. I ship quiet frequently and things that you thought would be 5-7 bucks are double. And that is usps.

    purchased a PinShield for my Stranger Things Pro machine because the cats seem to like pinball more than i do, & i am sick of cleaning the glass so often.

    it arrived within two weeks of placing the order despite the infamous USPS shipping delays of December 2020.

    i’m really happy with this - it’s easy to place & remove, & it fits my machine like a glove.

    thanks!

    Stern anti-glare glass came on my EHoH LE. I have added Voodoo glass to my BBB and SS.
    I ordered and received one Pinshield to try on EHoH. Quality is nice and the fit is very good.
    Today I ordered two more Pinshields to protect the expensive Voodoo glass and keep dust off.

    Who sells the Voodoo glass?

    Hello Pinside,

    I would like to first and foremost thank everyone who has supported Pinshield and made it a great success. While I would love to do more with the product, other things in life have become more of a priority. Rather than closing down the store, I have decided to hand it off to Joel, aka silverbearss a fellow pinsider to take ownership of Pinshield. To ensure a smooth transition, I will work with him where I can. In the meantime, please excuse any delays during his transition to catch up. FYI, the store front is updated with his contact information.

    Thank you,
    Justin

    Is there something different with them now? I mean they already have been posted with pics in blue and black so not really seeing what more pics are going to do unless they are different right. It’s just a solid color cover with a logo right

    Sorry for the cramped looked.....in a small room while we are waiting for our new home to be completed.

    I forgot to turn them on...might be better. I will do that later.

    New colours looking great, we are getting asked for them already - and we just put our last big order in

    #276 60 days ago

    Mod idea I am giving away for free because I don't have the time or means to make them. Someone make custom Pinshield logo stickers (just the shield) that can be printed with a game name or abbreviation. Then the sticker can be applied to the shield on the Pinshield, making it custom for that game. It would help when you have a bunch of them off and you want to put them back on the same games that you took them off of (some fit certain games better than others).

    It could be a simple white shield shaped sticker with WOZ or AFM in it. Or you could actually do custom backgrounds from that particular game and the acronym in it. Whatever you decide and how artistic you want to get. But this way, you could identify your mats to your game. And when you sell a game, if you want to keep the pinshield and use it elsewhere, its as easy and switching out a sticker.

    Whoever makes them would mostly need a way to print out the custom shaped stickers, and then stockpile a bunch of custom art, or fonts, or however you wanted to do them on their computer. And then just print out the stickers as they are ordered.

    Anyway, I would be a buyer for 5 of the stickers...

    My dad wanted a red one so I have a couple in stock. Price is a little more due to not being able to buy in bulk.

    They clean easy from spills like soda with soap and water.

    Red Pinshields look good on Iron Maiden, Deadpool, and I would guess on my BKSOR- but that’s at my brothers house right now...

    Red would look good on a premium star trek, but blue for a star trek LE.

    I just ordered and recieved 4 Pinshield protectors, and could not be happier with the product. I know Stern has a smiliar protector available, but was looking for something more cost effective, and that would match with the widebody game I have. One protector was very slightly damaged upon arrival - I reached out to Joel and let him know - he promptly shipped a replacement and included an extra shield in the box. Thank you for the excellent service, Pinshield!

    #291 8 days ago

    Could somebody put a wide body shield on a standard machine and take a picture? I know it won't look as clean with the overhang but I would like something to cover the side rails as well to prevent dust from getting into the plastic channels. I know it's a odd request but am curious how it would look.

    #292 8 days ago

    Sure, hope this helps with your question!

    Thanks so much. Doesn't look too bad and I might go that route. Plus it adds some extra protection on my rails that are brass and chrome.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    This is a really neat product.

    So neat that ... A major manufacturer stole the idea... which really does piss me off.
    I really wish the Op had patented the idea so he could extort money from that manufacturer.

    I’ve seen the full set of pin armor for moving games around, I wish they still made that, I need a set to move machines down and up stairs. Was that armor from OP as well?

    #297 7 days ago

    No. Pinarmor was by a different guy.

    Yep, dick move by Stern and they charge a shit ton more. Next they will make limited runs like their toppers just to create a demand.

    Quoted from Zitt:

    Stern had Pinarmor as well but I think they teamed up with the original creator to produce it with thier logo. That stuff was expensive but worth its weight in gold if you moved games a lot.

    Yeah; Stern did "license" from Pinarmor IIRC correctly.... because if not The patent would have given the Pinarmor team an easy win.
    You know they didn't license from Pin Shield... just stole the idea.

    It's one of many reasons I won't buy another nib from them.

    I always thought the Stern version was a closer knock-off to this one... https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/anyone-try-to-upgrade-spike-2-machines-for-5-1-4-speakers#post-5517492.
