We're back!

After a disaster in our datacenter took down our server, we are now running Pinside on a brand new server. However, things may not work as expected as we are still polishing the playfield and adjusting some switches! We might be switching to maintenance mode a few times. Please see this forum topic for more info.

The black looks really nice!

It's pretty cool. May change mine out in the days ahead. It's a bit more pricey than brass, but it makes a statement too.

Just a shout out to Chris. Doing a T2 restoration with a playfield swap. Switched out the chrome gun as well as all the wireforms that Chris exchanges. They are gorgeous. Wireforms are all installed and totally bring the playfield to a new level. Haven't installed the gun yet because the cabinet isn't complete. Thanks Chris. Awesome work.

Thanks! They are for a customer, pretty sure he's putting them on a Star Trek Next Generation. They are still hanging here, as he's sending his gun handle in to exchange fore a black nickel one

Quoted from boilerman:

I never quote times, just be ready to be patient. Could be weeks, could be months. Things have been much faster as of late, but there is also the threat of our guys having to shut down with the orders in place of staying at home, etc. It's was the topic of conversation on Friday, if we'd be fined if continuing to work, etc. So everything is up in the air.

FYI: I'm turning away screws, washers, small wire ball guides or anything deemed really small. It's just too much work an no one wants to pay for it, and our guys hate doing them. It's often more time consuming to do the smallest of things than the larger, not to mention it's easy to lose them.
Glad to do brackets, buttons, bolts (we do tons of carriage bolts), etc. Just something to think about when getting an order ready and glad to help get done whatever we can!

Here's a link to where it goes and what to send if needed: http://www.pinballplating.com/order-off-the-shelf

Hello Chris! I hope you and your family are well and have recovered from the tornadoes a couple of months ago. I have FINALLY located a TAF crossover ramp (not in my possession yet) but it is brass from a gold edition. Do I need to do any prep to it so you can plate it chrome?

Thanks!

No, no need to prep it, just make sure you are clear which plating you want back on one, as I have both brass and chrome. Glad to help!

It’s the little things sometimes, I’ve been trying to put this set together for what seems like FOREVER, lol. Each one came from a different batch of random wireforms I’ve acquired.
EARTHSHAKER conquered!
They are headed to chrome so we can have it in our exchange library!
Have unwanted wireforms? Orphaned habitrails (I kinda hate that word for some reason)? Hit me up. I’ll buy them, or trade for them if it’s something I can use.
Thank you to everyone who has sold or traded us a gun handle or wire ramps!!!

Quoted from Juicerc51:

You are looking at around $65 for each one. If it's a really big one, or it has big flat spots that require extra work it may be a little more, if a smaller one a little less. Glad to help.
