Prepping this last batch for shipping. My daughter has the flu so won’t get to the post office until later this week.

coyote your rails are still in process. Finished dyeing but the rain has been relentless.

No rush! I'm just starting reassembly next week, and have a lot of stuff to clean and assemble before I ever get to the rails.
Thanks again!!

I am gearing up for my next batch and am going through emails. I currently have 20+ sets in the queue so any new orders will be some time out prior to getting to them.

I still haven’t. I thought someone offered to send in a set but don’t think they did.

#567 45 days ago

sethman are you able to get Taylor EATPM rails?

#568 45 days ago

Here is my current list. I know I’m missing a couple people, but my email has been jacked up because of my daughter subscribing to YouTube channels.

If you are not on the list please hit me up. I’m traveling a bunch this summer so will probably be off the radar from mid-June to Late August.

Add Radical for HEP, those are incoming.

Rails arrived!

First thing installed on new-ish playfield!

They are darker than I anticipated (NOT Taylor's fault at all!), but looks fantastic.

Sorry about the color. It's so tough to gauge with the dye. They look sharp though, thanks for posting.

#572 40 days ago

Started these today and ordered more stock to complete the rails on the list. DH, Magic and Radical are incoming. Once I get these milled, drilled and sanded I am into finishing these and will not be starting any new sets until these are done and out the door.

No worries! Like I said - *I* was expecting a lighter color. Never expected you to match it! Since green was the least-used color on the playfield, I figured the rails would help it stand out. The back ball arch I powdercoated yellow, to match the curve and circle of the yellow on the bottomside of the clock-face. Should look nice once I get it more assembled.

Sounds like it will be a beauty.

Doing a little bluing.

Nice stuff. I made a new set of black dyed oak rails for my Gottlieb Incredible Hulk inspired by your work. I still have the originals that I would be glad to send you to have as a template if you think you would ever use them taylorva

The drawings I have only have measurements for the holes on the bottom of the rail. If cool with that drop me an email to taylorva72@gmail.com

Had a great time in Texas and saw a ton of Reese Rails shirts wandering the halls, was really great to see you all out in force.

Updates:

Due to weather, humidity to be exact, rails will be taking longer to finish. Will do my best to accommodate orders but between now and August everything is on a crawl. Thanks for the business this past fall and winter.

Had a great spring break in Asheville, NC this past week.

Got back Friday and got these ready for finish over the weekend. Humid as hell today so will hold off until another day for finish.
