    if I can get a minimum of 20 people willing to commit, I will be willing to offer one more run of the full size run-dmd clocks this year

    this is the same design that I just recently completed shipping featuring rgb LED panels
    see this thread for more info: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/run-dmd-assembled-clocks-batch-4

    the cost is $434 (due to running it as a smaller batch) plus shipping and includes a mostly assembled run-dmd clock, CR2032 lithium watch (coin type) battery, and a 5v, 10amp power supply and ac cord (usa - 3 prong grounded standard). the color for clock is user select-able (via a switch bank). the clock can be operated in one of the following 7 colors (red, green, blue, yellow, purple, teal, white)

    the front acrylic panel is transparent gray and the rear panel is black with a matte finish on the exterior (back) side. the rear panel also features a pair of holes (16" on center) so that the clock may be mounted on the wall.

    payment will be due only if a minimum of 20 people are [on board] and only when, after all of the components are received, the clocks have been assembled and are ready to ship

    reservation list
    Tony1312 [AC] - shipped 2016.dec.12 [intl]

    THE LIST IS NOW CLOSED as of 2016.sep.23 I am only ordering enough components to satisfy those people listed

    #11 3 years ago

    is this fully assembled?

    Do you have a video of the clock?

    #12 3 years ago

    You can see a video of it in his batch 4 thread. My friend bought one and I was amazed by it so I got on the list for batch 5.

    #13 3 years ago

    please add me to the list

    saw it at MDclips house really nice.

    I assume you can change the color? I know it's monochrome but I saw two different colors on that thread.

    #14 3 years ago

    Do these have to hang on the wall or is there a table stand also?

    Quoted from rai:

    from the first post:
    the color for clock is user select-able (via a switch bank). the clock can be operated in one of the following 7 colors (red, green, blue, yellow, purple, teal, white)

    Quoted from BOBCADE:

    fully assembled with the front piece of acrylic, they are pretty stable to sit on a table or they can be hung on the wall with the 16" on center mounting holes

    Hi, please add me to your list if you can ship to France. Do you provide a french ac cord and does it work with 230v? Thank you.

    #18 3 years ago

    Just got mine and hung it on the wall. This clock is amazing.

    Does the run_dmd board allow you to add custom text? It would be really cool to run off a grand champ list of my games on it plus other messages.

    Quoted from Snoopyseb:

    Hi, please add me to your list if you can ship to France. Do you provide a french ac cord and does it work with 230v? Thank you.

    yes, I can ship to france. the power supply is a switching one and accommodates 100v-240v, however you will need to source the correct power cord to connect to the power supply and run it to your mains

    Quoted from BOBCADE:

    yes, see this:

    a 5v, 10amp power supply brick that comes with the clock (as stated in the 1st post)

    But where is it? It is well hidden.

    Quoted from Pmaino:

    Just got mine and hung it on the wall. This clock is amazing.

    Pmaino, how are you powering the unit in your picture. Is the outlet behind the unit?

    #27 3 years ago

    no, it's a pretty good sized brick measuring about 6" x 3" x 2". it has a 3' cord on one end leading to a 2.5 x 5.0mm plug that connects to the run-dmd [white] board and the other end is a standard 6' 3-prong [grounded] electrical cord

    Pmaino must have his hidden in the wall. nice job too!

    #28 3 years ago

    Behind my wall is an unfinished part of my basement. All I had to do is drill a small hole in the wall and plug it in.

    2016.sep.12 update
    we're closing in on the minimum order number, however the shipping time may be delayed by an additional week once I start ordering the components due the fact that the panel manufacturer appears to be changing the mounting configurations on the fly.

    in the last batch of replacement panels that I just received, the mounting nuts (for a portion of the panels) were in completely different positions than all of the previous panels. this is yet, another one of the joys of dealing with international suppliers

    I've tweaked the design for the rear panel for a 6th time (adding the 2nd mounting configuration), so that this order doesn't go to waste, but I still want to receive the panels for this batch prior to placing the laser cut acrylic order to ensure that nothing else has changed

    #33 3 years ago

    Other than the mounting nut locations, is the panel the same as the last batch (brightness, LED spacing, etc.)?

    #34 3 years ago
    Quoted from GregP:

    Other than the mounting nut locations, is the panel the same as the last batch (brightness, LED spacing, etc.)?

    they look to be exactly the same, with the exception of the mounting nuts. I'm currently attempting to work things out with the vendor to ensure that photos of what will be shipped are sent prior to shipping them so that I'm not surprised at what is received

    #35 3 years ago

    Imagine what sourcing consistent parts for an entire pinball must be like!

    #36 3 years ago

    4 more needed, almost there.

    #37 3 years ago

    I received my Run DMD clock last week. One word to describe it: supercoolawesomeness!

    The build quality is exceptional, I love how the front acrylic panel really makes the animations pop. It looks fantastic in my home gameroom so a huge thumbs up to J.M. for putting together such a cool decoration. Highly recommended!

    I'm going to close off reservations at the end of the week and move forward with a smaller batch of 20 clocks so that everyone currently on the reservation list gets one and doesn't have to wait an excessive amount of time.

    all of the hardware (screws & stand-offs) arrived yesterday and the test batch of acrylic panels to accommodate the new mounting studs on the rgb LED panels is due to arrive today.

    if everything looks good (and fits properly), I will go ahead and order the remaining components (LED panels, power supplies and run-dmd pc boards) for 20 clocks and place a final order for the acrylic panels.

    the newly revised acrylic panels appear to be good to go (as long as the mounting studs do not change [again])
    I will be ordering the run-dmd boards and the remaining rgb LED panels once I get back from the chicago expo

    delivery should commence around the end of october or beginning of november

    #41 2 years ago

    Awesome....Can't wait for mine.

    #42 2 years ago

    I have one from an earlier run. You guys won't be disappointed!

    #43 2 years ago

    if anyone is attending the chicago expo next week, I will have 2 clocks with me (extra components from the last batch). the price is the same ($434), but it would save you the shipping costs. pm me to make arrangements

    #44 2 years ago
    Quoted from j_m_:

    if anyone is attending the chicago expo next week

    I'm pretty sure someone is!

    #45 2 years ago

    no takers yet

    note:
    this is the exact same clock that those of you that are currently on the reservation list will be getting (rgb LED panels w/ 7 select-able color options)

    if you are driving to expo (I'm not sure how well the clock would travel by plane due to its size), and want to obtain yours earlier, this is your chance
    parking lot drug deal ftw!

    just an update since I've been asked this frequently. the clocks ship mostly assembled, but not completely. the reason for this is a keep the front, transparent grey acrylic panel scratch-free

    when you receive your clock, you will need to follow these steps to complete the assembly process
    - peel the protective low tack paper from both sides of the gray transparent acrylic panel
    - attach the 6 nylon stand-offs to the rear panel, using the larger (included) allen key and the M4x12mm stainless screws
    - position the transparent acrylic panel over the front and secure using the M4x12mm black oxide screws

    note: be sure to only tighten the screws as much as they need. your goal is just to take up the slack between the screw, acrylic panel and the stand-off and snug the components together. the stand-offs are made of nylon, and they will strip if you over tighten them

    a cross-section of this assembly looks like this:
    stainless screw -> rear panel -> hex stand-off -> front panel -> black oxide screw

    I'm currently waiting on the run-dmd boards to be assembled before I can place the order for everyone on the list.

    once they are available, I will place the order for that component as well as the remaining LED display panels and power supplies

    ps
    fingers crossed that I do not experience the same level of defective panels in this batch of displays (one of more LEDs only partially functioning or not working at all). the nearly 25% rate in the last batch set back the delivery of 12 clocks. and with no alternative source, all I can do is verify and stress test, checking every panel before I assemble and ship the clocks

    #49 2 years ago

    With the Run-DMD boards backordered when do you expect you will be shipping finished clocks?

    Damn. Wish I would have saw this before Expo.
