I really want to apologize for the wait but we've had non stop humid conditions until yesterday. All rails received final coats today so a couple days and they should be ready to ship.

How similar are rails between different manufacturers and titles? Obviously the length and hole position are different but what about height and width? I live in Panama for a couple more years and shipping to and from here is very slow. I wanted to send you my Pinbot rails but it would have delayed my project for to long because of shipping times. Is it possible to buy rails painted and just cut them to the length I need?

Rails are typically 1/2" X 1 1/8" I've done raw rails for people or painted blanks and then they drill the holes. I try to work with whatever the person needs. If you can measure me lengths I can make them and just send you painted rails.

Been busy filling orders. Currently making some Firepower and FG rails for a fellow Pinside. A couple FT sets and a FG set are ready to ship.

I've had to bump my prices a little to deal when USPS price increases. In most cases sets are $60 shipped unless there is extra material or finishing needed. FG for example has about 3x the material as a normal set as and Firepower is stained and then finished so a slight bump in price as well.

I am always open to trades for parts or mods and will work with you if in need.

Thanks for the business and for allowing me to be a part of your restorations, the response over the years has been humbling.

Cheers.

Installed Reese rails on my ToM. Very happy with the result. I was doing a full tear down anyway it's the perfect time. A few pics nearly done now.

Quoted from TaylorVA:

greenmachine19 thanks for posting the pics.

Your welcome. Very happy with these make a huge difference in appearance and the playfield feels more solid. The old rails were soft and the screws were hardly biting into the wood. So much material came out of the original rails because they were soft(and old).

#209 2 years ago

The Star Gazer rail sets have arrived in Canada, and will be distributed to their rightful owners!

Finish looks fantastic...mine won't be installed for a few months. I think Drano will have his installed the soonest.

#210 2 years ago

I have a set of f14 rails, would you like these sent over to use as templates?

#211 2 years ago

lordloss I think I have a set already but will let you know.

I do have a set for Fish Tales if anyone is in need.

#212 2 years ago

TaylorVA are Star Gazer rails available now?

Quoted from travisbmartin:

travisbmartin I made some off of measurements I was given. These did not have measurements for top holes, only the ones on the bottom.

Winter Break is over and I'm getting back into the swing. All rails that have been ordered are milled with at least 2 coats of lacquer. Hoping to get all sets their final coats this week.

#228 2 years ago

Is that a dark purple stain you have on one of those sets? What game is that for?

I'm wondering if a deep purple might look really nice in a Lord of the Rings. Do you have the templates for that game?

Can't wait to install the ones for TOM!

#235 2 years ago

It's a blue. I've made LOTR but they were based off of measurements emailed me so I wasn't able to drill the pilot holes. The blue might look really sharp in LOTR. I'll send a sample with the TOM rails.

Messaged you mate, in regards a set of BOP rails. I realize shipping won't be cheap to Oz but i don't mind paying for quality

#237 2 years ago

I need a set for Indiana Jones (Williams) Do you drill the holes necessary? Do you paint them? Thanks!

Just realized it's my 10 year anniversary making playfield rails.

Thanks to anyone that has ordered a set or sent me sets to have as a template for other people's order. I've made hundreds of sets for people across the country and on at least 3 continents.

Here's to the next 10.

Eventually - later this year I think - I'm going to be sending you Nudge-It rails to make templates out of (you know, for the other 51 people that may need them..), and Meteor rails for templates if you don't have them already.

#241 2 years ago

Taylor, since CV playfields are now out there, do you have CV rail templates?

#242 2 years ago

Pretty sure I do. Will check in the morning.
