Quoted from Aflacjack:

Got my Demolition Man handles in and installed. They look GREAT. Now the old bolts not so much. Thanks Chris![quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Thanks for letting me help with them! I'd wire wheel those bolts and throw some fresh black paint on them, you'll be looking real good then

Let me know if I can help with anything!

Looking for a couple of parts if anyone can help:

1) Dirty Harry wireform - the top one that goes between the buildings (pic below)
2) Addams Thing Box (would buy a few)
3) Gun/Fishing Reel Shooters
4) Wireforms to pins I don't have

Glad to trade for plating or pay cash.

Let me know what you have.

I polished my bolts to match the handles I got from Chris. Wet dry sand paper and polishing pads from the hobby store worked great.

Good stuff!

Thank you to everyone who have made orders this week. You've really helped our family. We must replace our HVAC unit here at the house. Just want everyone to know how much we appreciate your support of what we do.

Aprons.
This seems to be the next thing we are getting into doing more and more of, which means I'm trying to stock more of them done. And if you thought that all aprons are the same, or at least similar between a few games, you are wrong. They are mostly different from game to game. Sure, older ones are very similar, but with WPC era games - mostly all very different. Here's Tales of the Arabian Nights for example - in brass of course - which I own 3 of, and we just located 2 more. That being said, if you have a bunch you are sitting on, to titles like Theatre of Magic or Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure - let me know. I'll trade or buy.

Always looking for gun shooters as well (or fishing reels) - same thing. Errybody wants to plate them, can't say I blame them.

Let me know how I can help you with what you are working on.
Thanks for looking!

Any progress with the side armor for new games? Just curious as we spoke on the phone awhile back. I know it was going to be some time to get going.

Nothing yet. It will happen but the guys are trying to learn the new machines and tooling. Fingers crossed....

The Shadow wireforms in black nickel. Did this set over a year ago, just because I had so many sets and thought someone might want to try it. A customer in Canada got this set recently but we will do another and try to keep on in the bins for exchange. Of course we always have brass ones as well. Black nickel is a more expensive option, on a game that already has a bunch of wireforms, but really cool stuff. These are not on the page yet, but I'll add them soon. It will be a while before I expect another set ready, they don't run the BN tank that often and it's not cheap to run it.

Glad to help with FH, we do ship parts everyday
Hope all is well with you!

This thread just makes money fall out of my wallet every time I look at it! The chrome and black parts look outstanding!

question: I have a great looking STTNG which is missing its apron guard. I have considered buying an entirely new apron, but I'd still have an apron without the guard. Do you have supply of those by chance? I won't have one to swap out obviously, but I can't find the darn thing anywhere

I do have a supply of apron guards, but I'm afraid the one on STNNG is one all to itself, in which I only own one. I will say this, a friend bought a aftermarket apron for his and then didn't need his apron or the guard for it after doing so, if that helps. He sent me his old apron and apron guard for me to use and that's the one I have now.
Thanks for keeping up and caring about what we do! Glad to help if I can!

Thanks Chris - I guess I need to confirm next if there's any other game that has the same guard. Nobody seems to stock these! thanks a bunch

At the risk of sound like a know it all, I don't think there are. TZ, IJ, STNNG, Dredd, all each use their own apron guards. It being a widebody (superpin) changes it from the ones that are commonly found and none of those share the same one. It kinda stinks. I can send you a pic of one if you need it.

Early WPC doors in good ol chrome - we used to exchange these, but these days we just plate ones sent in, that way no one can be upset if they get one with a dent in it, etc. Hard to tell what you have when they are black.

Hey Chris- file this under "who knew this would happen"

If you ever end up doing another Breakshot post, just chrome the main thick post, not the bottom section. Turns out that there's a really tight tolerance with the gasket in the mech below. The extra few thousandths cause the post to drag and not go down.

No big deal though, I'll just turn it down in the lathe and all will be well.

Looks amazing though. Like I said, who knew?

Theatre of Magic parts in satin brass - these are for exchange - not a usual thing to have in stock and was actually a mistake by our guys, but figured I'd offer them up in case anyone was digging it - it is a nice change from the normal polished brass we do on these parts.
