Well, this happened today on my JunkYard, so if that refrigerator ramp ends up being made please consider me customer number 1.

My offer to ship you my broken refrigerator ramp is still open if you have any interest in reproducing this ramp. I already bought your reproduction toilet and main ramps, so having this refrigerator ramp would complete the set!

I have a friend that would buy the Monopoly ramps immediately if they were remade.

As of right now, I am not taking on anything new...just trying to keep things in stock for the time being. I will probably do one new ramp by the end of the year if I get time. I am not even confirming the title because as soon as I do, I start getting relentless emails pushing me to do it faster. It will be a nice surprise for some folks. And no, it is not from Time Machine.

Monopoly is not in the near term list of probables...it kind of looks like a headache to trial when I do not have a copy of that game in my shop to work from. RCT was a complex set of ramps, and I had a hard time soliciting feedback over the last 6 months from the few sets that were produced. I should probably take that as a sign that everything went fine...but I like to know for sure on a big project like this. That is the main reason for such a long delay on these.

I may consider Monopoly under two conditions- if my source has some NOS examples I can work from, and I have at least 10-15 people interested in purchasing sets out of the gate. I want to be sure I actually have legitimate interest in a new ramp as opposed to the same person contacting me through 5 different channels using different names.

A note on international shipping- I distribute through Marco Specialties, EC Flipp (France), RTBB (Australia) and Pinball Center (Germany). I no longer ship directly to France. If you are in France, please use one of my distributors to purchase my ramps through. Most of my bigger ramps are going to cost close to $100 to ship there, plus import duty. This turns into a significant monetary issue should something become damaged in shipping or a return needs to be made. Purchasing through a distributor supports your local pinball merchants so they can stock even more parts, you get your items faster, and you have a local point of contact who speaks your language should you need service.

One other update...my rivet kits now include a nifty removable rivet tray you can use to put rivets and washers in while you are working. No more fishing them out of the bag, one at a time! Colors will vary at random, and I just did a big restock on all rivet materials.

Just do what you can when you can. We can wait. (some want instant now. But have no idea the work in getting a product made) I bet when you 1st started make replacement ramps there was no clue you were in for a ride.

As one of those known numbers that want Time Machine ramps and have spoken to all the makers over the years. I have been told it will only be done when their bored and want to beat their head against the wall. Then do a project and not make money either. This is not the way of doing business. Nice on the rivet kit.

I'd definitely be interested in a set!!

Thanks for replying to my email on my comments for mine. Super happy with how RCT Turned out. Way more playable now with ramps that aren't patched up!!

Hi guys-
I had been waiting for the big left RCT ramp- missed out earlier, but requested notification from Jody's site-
Got it at 4.30AM this morning, and my order is in, heard a nice reply from Jody. Really looking forward to this, it was unobtainium before Ramp-o-matic!
Thank you Jody for being here to support us in keeping these wonderful old machines alive!!
Two Thumbs up!

I can tell you that the Xenin tubes are freaking crystal clear! Pictures don't do it justice at all. Love it!

Jody- Ever a small chance in hell you would attempt the large red Riverboat Gambler ramp?

Seems like such a bad design to make the ramps all one piece. A little crack here and you have to weigh replacing the whole thing.

#874 56 days ago

What game?

#876 56 days ago

If you put the ramp in a box, what dimentions would it be?

Quoted from lrosent345:

pretty sure it's the entire size of the standard PF minus below the slingshots. We took the photo as a joke because it was just so redonkulous taking off... it's like a 2-3 person job to avoid flexing it so much since it's so huge and so intertwined.

#878 55 days ago

I can safely say that one isn't happening....haha. I have never even had a request for it, thankfully.

Seeing that multiple ramp makes Monday Night Football look like a simple one.
