Quoted from Pinball_Basement:

Taylor, do you do banzai run?

I came here to ask the exact same question!

#1352 28 days ago

Is there a set for Stern Meteor?

Quoted from ibis:

He should have template - he made mine.

#1354 28 days ago

I can use a set for Meteor, if that can be put into the que. Do I message you directly or is posting here good enough?

#1355 28 days ago

I'm in the "queue" (unconfirmed) for Meteor as well, hopefully, via a message to TaylorVA last month.

Maybe he can knock out all the Meteors for us in one batch?

Message sent! Were you going to go black or a different color?

I've gone back and forth a few times between purple and black. I'm back to black now....

#1358 27 days ago

On my Meteor, I went with a dark blue. I don't have them installed yet, though - PF swap will come later this year.

I'll give you $40 to send him your set for him to reproduce.

I’m still a week out from firing up production, after Labor Day weekend, and it looks like my material supply issue has finally been sorted out. I think I should have stock to make about 60 sets of rails as of Sept 1st.

I am still going through emails, but if I haven’t contacted you please reach out again. I get a lot of email and it’s hard to manage what’s been made and what’s a new order.

PLEASE…..

When ordering have the game you want in the subject along with the date you send the email. I think that will help me keep things a bit more sorted.

Thank you to everyone that has patiently been waiting, I’m looking to buy a Godzilla this fall so the table saw will be humming.

Using Pinside mail is generally fine, but you can also reach me at [email protected] if you contact me through both lmk so I don’t make duplicates, that happened last year.

Picture is just to remind people of what I do.

NICE! Im in the cue.....

#1365 18 days ago

I believe Taylor has Transporter the Reacue rails not on his first page game title list which is also marked key post BTW.

I just requested a TAF set today 8/29/21 via email.

#1367 16 days ago

Quick update.

I have orders for 35 sets of rails and feel comfortable with the stock I have to fill those orders. Once I get those milled I’ll open back up my orders queue. Plan is to start back in the shop Tuesday after Labor Day weekend.

I drive my kids to school and pick them up in the afternoon so have a window of about 3 1/2 hrs a day to work in the shop. I will post update pics of what Im working on so most of you get a sense of what’s going on.

Humidity is always a delicate thing around this time so hoping to have all 35 sets ready for finishing so I can do them when I have a good low humidity window.

Have a great weekend and be safe.

Beautiful sight!

#1369 10 days ago

Everything set ordered has had the blanks cut. Will finish milling tomorrow as my back is a little f’d up so need a minute.

Notches made. Pretty tame batch tbh, I’ve been doing a lot of Solid states and the tapered slots are usually the biggest grind. Because of so many multiples: 4xIJ, 4 wh20, etc it’s been relatively quick to get to this point. Next is the tedious task of transferring all holes for predrilling, not going to lie, it’s by far the most time consuming part of rhe process. Hope to have them done by Friday.

Ps- If anyone has a spare PAPA hat they’d like to sell me I’d be indebted to you. Mine has seen better days.

Hole locations transferred. Still need to cut a tapered slot on a Mata Hari replacement rail, will do that tomorrow and start drilling pilot holes.

This batch is drilled and made up a TAF backboard today. Still need to route out the tapered slot, but will do that this weekend and then start sanding Monday. Cheers.

Looking good, I think I see my couple of sticks tucked in there somewhere. Glad the humidity is cooperating!! Perfect timing with Godzilla just being teased.

#1374 6 days ago

Went ahead and made up a recently ordered IJ and Roadshow today, also routed out the MH rail.

Just want folks to know I’m in the shop sanding. This takes a couple days which works out as the humidity has spiked again. Should have this batch ready for finish by Friday.

I know I’m behind on responding to a couple emails I received this weekend, give me day to get caught up.

A couple things: I do NOT have Banzai Run rials. I need to have set shipped in.
I also don’t have a physical HS backboard in the shop and used customer provided drawings to make the one last year. I really need one to copy as I’m not 100% confident that the drawings are a match.

Pics so you know what I’m working on…893B37D2-33CB-447E-AB29-78CAE7CE1CCF (resized).jpeg97DD55D5-B35B-4296-8D17-DA248923F35E (resized).jpeg

I'll cover half the cost of a set of rails for any owner of Banzai that sends a set in for reference.

I think I have a set coming in. Will update if that happens.

Was able to get this most recent batch sanded and ready for finish today. Looks like weather might cooperate and drop the humidity starting this weekend.

Yep! I take a few moments to soak in the beauty of these rails every time I play my game with them.

So of course now all the games need em!
