I've been thinking about production this whole time.
I got a TON of interest which I feel very grateful that so many people love what I'm doing.
I'd like to eliminate any false expectations.
From the time/effort I've invested so far, there's no way I could produce complete units in a way that's fair compensation for my time and not cost the customer a silly amount of money.
There's simply too much time/labor for one guy to do.
I'm only so good of a woodworker (and a lackluster clearcoater) and would not want to sell a product that wasn't as good or better than the factory original.
If my free time greatly expands and my other life responsibilities minimize down the line (unlikely), I'd consider making a very small run (5 units?)
The good news is I love free information and sharing within the hobby.
I'm leaning towards making everything open source and giving away all the files (artwork, models, plans, schematics) once the project is complete.
I know most don't have the same tools or know-how I do so still thinking of offering up a bare-bones kit - complete playfield (not clearcoated), knobs/rods/flickers, then you use the aforementioned open source plans and you build your own.
This would be a quick/easy turnaround from me, then you can build your cabinet however you wish.
The unknown factor at this point is what time/cost it will take to do the metal knobs/rods/flickers. Unfortunately, I don't know what I don't know.
