Quoted from Whysnow:

WE REALLY NEED FULL RADICAL RAMPS!
I am pretty sure Mark is only making one of the ramps for that title?

Actually making both the upper ramp and the Vertical ramp right now. I'll talk to Larry about which direction to go for the other two ramps. At the moment I have them pegged for the new heater.

Quoted from lrosent345:

I have the ability but don't do it. With close to 150 ramps available, and wholesalers across the globe, I would have to hire another employee to do the dying and it's just not practical with my business model.

I can attest to the fact that it is another significant step in the ramp making process!

Quoted from yellowghost:

If it a task that is not disire-able, may I ask what the process is and is it something that can be done without special tools?

I can help you....pm sent.

Gotta ask, what color options will be available?

Larry is going to offer them all his black ABS plastic.

Quoted from lrosent345:

As you might have guessed, there is now a countrywide shortage of Acryllic and PETg.

So far my supplier has not offered up the PETG for sneeze guards. Worst so far for me has been to wait a couple extra days to get it cut.

Quoted from MrExtrm:

Any chance you'll take on DE Time Machine?

Excuse me for chiming in here Larry....

Although the DE Time Machine was a very low production machine, there have been a lot of requests for this one. Ramps vary in difficulty to reproduce. As you've seen posted photos of original molds, most were made out of aluminum for strength and durability. The Time Machine ramp has some very narrow areas between the lanes which necessitates that this ramp be formed on a female mold. Those narrow partitions on the mold must be incredibly strong to handle the rigors of vacuum forming. Reproduction molds made today are generally made with either cast resins or perhaps ceramics. While these materials generally work well for most formings, ramps like the Time Machine and also to a somewhat lesser degree TMNT present difficult challenges. Making a mold out of aluminum these days is simply cost prohibitive.

That doesn't mean it's not possible that this can be reproduced....just going to be hard!
