The left ramp is a pain in the ass. I found the best way to do it is lift the playfield slightly to get a good angle through the opening where the wires go from the playfield to the back box.

Got an order coming in shortly for a Cyclone set..he's very excited to dump his originals (two of which are..bad) after I told him how much I love my clear SS ramp!

That's what I did. And my hands are giant and awkward and they barely fit into those two slots in the back. Even lowering the backbox to get back there. But that has nothing to do with the quality of the ramps I hope other people have an easier time. But I only lost a couple of screws in the process from dropping them. I can't speak highly enough about how great they are. So far I haven't had any issues of ball jumps on the right ramp when it pops out. I hope it's because the ramps are thicker and don't allow as much bounce. Sometimes the ball would bounce off about 75% down the ramp, but there were no breaks or anything.

Because I have gorilla hands it's easy to break things, I was worried while bending the left ramp up to get the bracing post on there, but there was no cracking of plastic or anything. Luckily I had the little black screw tabs in the back. I know it's not your responsibility but I don't know if you can even get new ones and send them with the new ramps.

Would there be any chance of DE Back to the Future somewhere down the line? These things are near impossible to find and everyone I talk to says they would pickup a fresh one in a heartbeat. Amazing work!

#455 3 years ago

Jody or Mark would be more likely to do that than me.

#456 3 years ago

What are the odds of a DE Simpsons ramp?

#457 3 years ago

Jody or Mark would be more likely to do that than I.

#458 3 years ago

Hi. What about DE turtles ninja ?

#459 3 years ago

I won't be doing anything but Williams for the foreseeable future.

#460 3 years ago

BSD ?

Pinsider PjM made these 1-2 years ago. Check with him.

#464 3 years ago

Thanks again Larry...

#465 3 years ago

Funny you should ask now. About a month ago Bay Area Amusements and I started working on whether or not this is possible since getting red PETG is not an option. We should have samples shortly to evaluate the finished product.

#468 3 years ago

When rearranging the warehouse, I found about 12 red coffin covers for Monster Bash. It is unclear if I will ever run them again. I have placed them on the website if anyone wants one.

I've sent a couple of emails to [email protected] but no answer, should I send PMs instead?

#471 3 years ago

pellew Yes And here I think he will answer you faster.

#472 3 years ago

If you used the website, that link doesn't work although the address is correct. PM is fine.

You're all welcome. The clear Space Shuttle ramps are spoken for.

#477 3 years ago

There are 2 things I need. The NBA hoops ramp metal bracket protecting the outhole. I need to borrow it but would prefer to buy it if possible.
Next, I need a Cyclone game to test fit my Ferris Wheel Exit ramp. Preferably one in the Phoenix Valley but if I don't find one here, I would be willing to ship it to someone to test fit themselves.

Hi I misread it before. I can borrow you the hoops bracket if you want it. ? thank you

left ramp off the Ferris wheel.

Did you have to redo that for some reason? The one I purchased from you at York works great and is a perfect fit.

#482 3 years ago

I did. I made a male tool instead of yours that was done on a female tool.

#483 3 years ago

I started work on NBA Fastbreak right ramp this weekend. It is going to be a lot more trouble than I anticipated. It is going to be difficult to form and the number of riveted parts and decals is gonna drive the cost up. Doable but it's gonna be slow. It's tough to replace too due to the harnesses that run along the ramp.

#484 3 years ago

Hi. Make sure I’m in the waiting list. Thank you.

Going to do a cyclone tear down soon and I will need this ramp, shall I assume the mold doesn't really matter to the end user?

#488 3 years ago

It matters a little. With a male tool, the ramp is thicker in places the ball hits and much thicker at the bottom of the ramp. I can also make it with thicker plastic and not worry about changing the flow of the ball.

I checked with my metal bender and he is not going to be able to run the parts for the NBA right ramp for a month. I'll bet it is more like 6 weeks. The decals were ordered a couple of weeks ago. The first ramp should be here in 2 weeks so I can start the test process. I'll let you know as we get closer.

#490 3 years ago

lrosent345 I have this game for a long time whit a bad ramp so 6 more weeks seems like nothing. Thank you !!!

OK. Here is your teaser. First off NBA right ramp. Still need ancillary parts on order and decals also on order. Need the ancillary parts before I can test fit.

Everything takes longer than expected. Just approved the final proofs for the decals.

Sheesh, after all that work to produce such a complex ramp, making translucent green Grand Lizard ramps should be a cinch
