Cool.

Could it work on Defender?

I don't know....

This is a replacement drop target for P/N 03-8033 or 03-8750

#6 3 years ago

Defender has a ton of drop targets.
Several are roll over.
2 are right in the middle of the playfiled

I've never seen a Defender in person...Not sure if this will work or not. I didn't see that pin listed on the list of pins that use this drop target. There may be a few other titles that use this drop target that I'm not aware of.

Very cool if you could see the one on BSD I would want one of these

I have a BSD...just haven't installed one in it yet. By its' location, I still don't think you'll see the drop target, even if it's lit.

#11 3 years ago

Just got off the phone w/ Art at Comet...

What a great guy to work with.

It's truly a pleasure talking with someone that has a sincere interest in your work. He has such a passion for pinball. His excitement for my work is genuine.

I don't own any games that could use these, but I love seeing properly machined parts instead of 3D printed ones. 3D printing is awesome for certain tasks, and especially rapid proto work, but it's just not really good enough for a lot of final products. So good for you.

#14 3 years ago

Thanks Aurich,

I agree...3-D printers are great for certain circumstances, but the surface finish sucks. 3-D printers have taken a lot of work away from me in my normal line of work...(medical prototyping/test equipment).

#15 3 years ago

Just played a few games on IJ, FT, and TS w/ these installed.

Due to the locations of the drop targets on TS and FT, (view of the target somewhat blocked by existing plastics), you can really tell if the target is up or down during gameplay. The top surface on the drop targets are REALLY lit up...you can easily tell when the target is up or down.

Have to admit...I'm pretty impressed.

But that's just me....I made 'em.

#16 3 years ago

wow! very, very cool

#17 3 years ago

Looking for some input....

The current design is only for the single drop target assembly.

I'm wanting to be able to light up the 3-bank drop target for IJ, but that's going to involve some creative design to either use the existing mounting holes on the coil bracket, or coming with some other way of easily attaching a light bracket that will utilize a 7 LED strip.

Due to my current workload in the shop, I won't be able to get this for a few weeks.

What I'm seeking input on is this:

I'm looking for a 3-word phrase that ties into the theme well. My goal is to machine each word, (as long as it's not too long), into each of the 3 targets in the center PF area.

Any ideas?

The only suggestion I would have is maybe to try and stay away from text. What about outlines of Sankara stones or the idol, coiled whips, or holy grails? Personally, I like the Sankara stones because they glowed at points during the movie.

#20 3 years ago

or a three word phrase: "Fortune and Glory"

#21 3 years ago

Is there a memory version of this drop target? (As in the second coil to drop the target when needed)

Also is this a complete assembly (coil and bracket / etc)? I'd be interested in several for a few home brew projects if so.

Those look great! Cyclone uses 03-8033 as well, and has a single rollover drop target at the Spookhouse entrance.

This mod is only for the parts in the picture.

That can be somewhat easily done.

Not sure how the final product will look though.

It will be a few weeks before I can re-visit this project due to my worklaod in the shop.

I agree that the 3d printing industry has made a disruption in machine shop industry. I do agree 3D printing does not work for all finished products, but I do have to tell you Aurich, we have done pretty well with number of final products people continue to be delighted with. A lot of our products would not exist if 3d printing was not available, alternatives can just be too expensive.

This is very, very cool. Here's a few of my ideas on it.

Traditional drop targets are made of a plastic that is somewhat brittle. I have replaced a several IJ and PM drop targets because they broke. Since these are made of polycarbonate, they should be unbreakable. Will there be any adverse effect with these?

I can think of several games that have 3 or more drop targets that would be very cool with these. At $50 each, that could seriously add up. Is the $50 each price point set in stone, even if you did 3 or more targets for a single game?

Don't get me wrong, 3D printing is very cool, and I have some of your 3D printed products on my games. But I'm just picky about the surface finish 3D printing can have, they're just not the same as machined parts.

#34 3 years ago

I see you have JM listed as one of the options. Which design is for JM?

#35 3 years ago
Quoted from KevInBuffalo:

At this point, I'm shipping plain targets for all of the machines on the list.

The reason...having a blank target will allow the purchaser to apply a decal, if they'd like. I'd love to provide various decals for these targets, but I have no graphic art capability.

Having text/artwork on the target face does create more reflective surfaces for the LED, but this would hamper the adhesion of any decals anyone may want to apply to the target.

#36 3 years ago

Out of all of the designs...I personally like the simple star pattern. It really looks nice when it's lit.

Going forward...if anyone prefers the machined text/artwork, please let me know this when you place your order. I have the machine set up to add this additional operation at no additional cost.

#37 3 years ago

What about a wall target for The Shadow? That could be really cool looking and noticeable because the Battlefield drop on Shadow can't really be seen.

Quoted from PoMC:

Yes, it would look great with a brick pattern that would really light up with a red led.

#39 3 years ago

Anyone mention No Fear as a cool candidate for one of these drops?

No Fear is included in the list.

They would be great for Cactus Canyon. It was originally designed for light up drop targets but they kept breaking. How will these hold up?

#42 3 years ago
Quoted from zr11990:

My guess is that they should hold up pretty good. Polycarbonate is pretty much un-breakable.

#43 3 years ago

Then sign me up for a set of CC ones.

#44 3 years ago
Quoted from zr11990:

Then sign me up for a set of CC ones.

The CC drop targets are different, physically, than the rest of the ones listed. They're held up by a pulse pattern on the coil and not a latch with a release. Not to say that they couldn't be done, the design would just have to be altered a bit.

I'd love to see them done for CC. Not sure I'd love to pay $200 for a full set of 4 for the game, but it'd be an awesome add on for those that would.

#45 3 years ago

For T2 can you etch the original sticker design on it or is it too intricate? Pretty cool!! Sorry if this was discussed already.

I would also be interested if this is possible.

I've never seen the decal design.

If someone has one I could borrow, I might be able to somewhat duplicate it...depending on the complexity.

#49 3 years ago

Cool. Do you have the ability to create any type of target (assuming you have an original to pattern)?

#50 3 years ago

Any plans to do this for a standard drop target? Would love this for the single WW target. I think it would look good!
