Serisouly the gods are trying to tell me something. Latest print has punctured the FEP film. Have to order film from McMaster.

Hey flashinstinct, head up, unusal things happen but you have a good reputation on Pinside and made some real cool stuff including this mod.

I am sure everyone has faith in you and are confident that you will fix the issue and make them good. The gods might be telling you to slow down and take a breath.

You know if you ever need a hand / advice I am, as well as others are here to help out.

Not sure which you are using but ABS like resin for tall components like this is Much stronger. Typical resin is very brittle for structural parts that are thin. Just a thought. Also, FEP is best (lower cost) ordered in large sheet and simply cut down. I order from Amazon for 1 tenth the price of precut OEM. Good luck.

Your call but that is straight resin. ABS Resin is much stronger and slightly more flexible against breakage.

Another one bites the dust (upon arrival). I feel so badly for you... but I know you'll figure out a solution that will be more resilient. Let me know if you need anything else from me.

Is it possible to make the bracket 2 pieces and make it a slide together fitment.

#462 1 year ago
Quoted from eyeamred2u:

It would be possible but at this point impractical. The new print test I made is ultra strong and this morning just to be 1000% sure I have thickened the end where the bolt meets with the can. The problem I have right now is not having enough output. I am seriously considering getting a second printer so I can print 4 at a time. I have ordered new FEP films and Tough Resin.

#463 1 year ago

I'd like to make things very clear. I wont pretend that this is not like a punch in the gut from my end but I must suspect that buyers feel let down by the experience. Amazing how shipping can turn a full campaign upside down.

I have come up with a small timeline of how things should proceed.
- Nov. 25 Reception of new FEP Films
- Nov. 25 Shipping out 1 copy of the bracket to rgzpinx to make sure at least the bracket can survive the trip. No point in going through the same exercise that we have just gone through. I am highly confident that this will work as the bracket is being sent solo.

- Nov. 25 Start printing more brackets (max of 4 per day). There will be a 2 day process for each bracket. Day 1 - curing, day 2 paint. Day 3 shipment. So the first bracket won't ship out until at least the 28th of November.

If I being realistic I hope to cget everyone their bracket by Christmas

Between now and then a few things must happen and I must ask your cooperation in order for everything to work. The unit was meant to be have a very tight fit. In order to install the new bracket, the old one will have to be removed. To get the current bracket and screw out you will need to remove the top of the can. You will need a flat head screwdriver to pry it open. Try to find a spot around the can that you believe would be easiest to nudge the edge of a flat screw driver in. Twist the screwdriver to try and pry the cap up slightly, do not use and up down motion, make sure to twist/rotate like changing gears on a bicycle handle. Once you see movement, move around the cap slowly by using the same technique. Do not try to lift it all at once in a swift movement. Once the cap is off you will have to remove the glue from the nut in order to get the screw off. The cap is really tight, at this point to avoid any other mishaps, I would ask that you sand the inner edges of the cap to make the fit less tight before you try putting it back on. If everyone can get that done before their bracket gets there at least it will be less of a hassle once it does arrive.

No feeling of let down as this is a new venture and concept so things can happen! Have to break a few eggs as they say... Sadly I need to be added to the list as mine arrived yesterday and while I Hoped I would be special and without issue I was not so lucky. I will start the disassembly process and understand the setback. Things happen.

#465 1 year ago

Also throwing it out there. If any of the buyers own a 3D resin printer or know someone that owns one. I could always provide the file for the bracket and let you guys skip the wait and print your own. I am not by any means trying to skimp out but just offering it as an alternative.

#466 1 year ago

I too thought I'd get lucky(nope)...maybe if the bracket was individually wrapped?

Pretty awesome regardless! I wasn't sure exactly what the size would be until seeing it in person.

I'm not exactly sure what action is required on my end, so i'll just set this aside for now.

The cap is really tight, at this point to avoid any other mishaps, I would ask that you sand the inner edges of the cap to make the fit less tight before you try putting it back on.

Just a couple observations... my cap came off quite easily as it wasn't completely flush, so a flat screwdriver blade fit in quite easily and I was able to gently pry in several spots and came off in about 10 seconds. I'm not going to sand, as it goes back on fairly easily as well, but not loose by any means.

As for the glue on the nut... I left it on, as the screw came out without having to remove the glue. Bonus is now the nut is still glued in place and once I get the new bracket, I can put it back in quite easily without even having to fuss with the nut. In fact, if you're a risk taker, you might be able to remove and replace the screw without even removing the cap. I'm pretty sure I could have done so with mine, but now that the top is off, I can at least visualize the nut while screwing it back in to make sure it doesn’t get knocked loose or anything.

Nut falls at bottom of can and fries all LEDs. In other words don't be a risk taker

Well, I’d assume this wouldn’t be done with power on (or mod even installed yet). And you’d know if the nut was on the screw or otherwise it wouldn’t tighten. Don’t get me wrong... I’m NOT recommending it, and am typically never a risk taker. Definitely don’t want my comments to be misconstrued, so good advice.

But I still contend that the glue should not have to be removed if others are glued like mine.

I was saying it half heartedly (I think that is the way you say it)... I wouldn't want the nut to ever fall even after. If people have a glue gun handy, I would make a glue mound the size of Everest just to be safe

Sorry to add to your list, but I just opened mine, and the bracket was broken as well.

No problem waiting.

Looks exceptional,though....much better than I Imagined!

(....and I can more than empathize, its happened to me many times)

I think maybe the other poster might have had a good point. Packaging it separately might have helped.

Quoted from EightBallTexas:

Yup. That would have almost guaranteed that everything would have arrived safely. My main worry about that was the snug fit of the cap. I didn't want anyone to potentially damage their mod. Mind you a bit of glue in the entire would have fixed any potential issues. Chalk it down as lesson learnt.

#481 1 year ago
Quoted from EightBallTexas:

Sadly I don't think so. Resin parts have incredible detail but virtually no structural integrity. These could have been backed in cotton and feathers and I suspect the result would have been the same eventually. No worries minor setback and the product is still Awesome!

#482 1 year ago

To all buyers. yelobird was kind enough to offer an olive branch. Long story short, everyone will receive a new bracket shipped directly from the states using a much stronger material. What does this mean for you? It means everyone will receive a bracket in the next two weeks or so.

I won't lie, I've been stressing for the last week trying to find ways to accelerate the process so everyone can enjoy their mod.

This is the best answer.
Have a great weekend.

Tough situation but credit actually goes to #flashinstinct He evaluated every possible option to expedite a quick and painless solution to ensure his customers were happy and taken care of even if it meant a loss of profit. Stand up builder in my book and I applaud that commitment! I will do Everything I can to get All of these sent out by next week as long as the paint process cooperates and update Guy with status along the way to share with his clients.

Nah yours wasn't attached to the can. Test fit the top before putting it on. Some sanding might be requires.

#492 1 year ago

Guess the delivery to texas has issues. Mine was picked up on the 17th and paid for 4 day and now it's the 23rd and no news. Looking at 7 days or more.

Let hope the delay is because mine is hand driven down from Canada and it will not be in pieces. HAHA.

I am only going to shave once it's in machine..

#493 1 year ago

Not to pile on, but mine was broken, too.

#494 1 year ago

I got a email saying my delivery is here....I run to the door....woohoo....excited since I was expecting Monday.

I didn't have to open box and already knew it was broken. Dang!!!

I was thinking take off the bracket that's left on the can and use sticky tape and place it on plastic, you will still see the lights.

Anyone thought to do that, will be all snug back there and safe.

Loving it! I decided to connect to the control room. Was tempted to connect to Chaos but I don't think the cable was long enough. The detail work on this is really quite impressive. The only downside is the audible clicking sound the relay makes when turning off and on. Not an issue during gameplay but definitely hear it during attract mode. Overall super happy with it!

Update: things are progressing well on Yelobird's front. Brackets are being printed as we speak

#499 1 year ago

Brackets are Complete. Ran them 24/7 all weekend to get all those beautiful shaving cans hung by the Xmas tree for the holidays. Paint process starts tomorrow morning with Hopes (not promises....) to get ALL of these sent out this week if I can cure the paint properly in time so they ship unmarred.
