The drop target face has no decal. I machine various artwork into the face of the drop target. Once installed, the machined artwork lights up pretty good. Here are a some screen captures of the various artwork available for the WOZ drop target...

Forgot to mention...In this kit, I'm using a standard 555 socket. Bulb replacement is easy.

Here's a pic of the kit.

The first picture (red) is definitely the sharpest in focus. Looks really cool. How do you think the material will hold up with use? (I know nothing about the subtleties of different plastics.)

#7 3 years ago

This looks really nice. I want one!

I've had these polycarbonate drop targets on my pins for months...have never had a problem.

Can you price just the target?

#11 3 years ago

My T2 target turned out great. I ended up using a coin taker double flex light and pointing them up into the target. turned out really nice I think.

I just received my Indy Winkie and it's great! This is what the Winkie should have been. It's a thicker, harder plastic and no scanning lines like done with a 3d printer. I highly recommend this product even if what you have hasn't broken (yet). Thanks Tim!

#14 3 years ago

Thank you!!!

I wonder if I ought to patent that name...Indy Winkie.....LOL

Glad you like my drop target.

I have a batch ready to ship, if anyone is interested.

Did you and Tim Mezel trade off on making this now. I thought he was doing this too

No, there was no trade off.

I just decided to start making these out of polycarbonate knowing that it is a much stronger material. As far as I know, Mezelmods still makes these.

Mine's just slightly different, that's all.

#17 3 years ago

Thanks for clarifying that. When mine breaks I will try yours. Happy with my wizard cover.

The more folks making the mods, the better. There is room for all.

The picture doesn't show it but the Indy Winkie is much tougher. I've broken 2 Mezel's. I've never had any trouble with any other Mezel product though so don't be Mezel shy except in this one case.

Mezel makes great stuff...have some of it on my pins, and planning to buy more.

My manufacturing methods, 3-D cnc machining, can't compete w/ the simplicity/speed of 3-D printing. In this particular application, I felt that polycarbonate would be the right way to go. It's somewhat soft, in comparison to other plastics, but it's a pretty durable material. That's why they make bullet proof glass from it. The manufacturing process is somewhat time consuming, but it's worth it, once you see the end product. I've got them installed on several of my pins and seem to be holding up great.

Hoping to show my Metallica version soon.
