Quoted from Captain_JAB:

Wow that’s impressive! Thanks for the video! How’s the play feel having ramps in TNA? It’s a game I’d love to get in my collection sometime. Adding ramps to it is an interesting idea.

TNA is fantastic. I just hate the cabinet and artwork. I moved it into a Stern cabinet and it just looks way better. The horshoe ramp works with plastic transitions. I tried stainless steel and they just dont work. I need to make another set of plastic transition ramps. All I took away was the 2 stand up targets. I have a switch made up that only registers the ball traveled, left or right. It just makes it more fun for me. I got lit up on some podcasts. Very weird hearing the designer dog your project, but its his right. Heres a video of the horshoe working. The switch is not on this ramp. This ramp was to prove it was doable.

Star Wars Pro wireforms next???? Please?????

I would need to see a pro in person to see if it makes sense. The ramps are metal on premiums. I would need to buy the metal ramps to make the wireforms. Those are tight turns and not easy to make. The hyper loop would be deleted. I would be up to it if enough people were interested when I am done or caught up with mandos.

That’s truly sad about all the work you had done and lost but your commitment to quality is kind of inspiring.

Keep up the great work. I can’t wait to have to have a set.

Quoted from blairan213:

Hang in there. Keep in mind, your "worst" work is better than anything else out there, and you can rest assured that there is a line of folks that would purchase those early rails no questions asked; knowing that they "may have issues over time." Maybe offer them up at a discount instead of scrapping them, to recoup some of your costs? We are all rooting for you! You are a skilled and dedicated man, for sure.

I have (3) sets of version 3 ramps that I am selling “as is”. All 3 work and are completed. I put each of them on my machine and they do work. There is minor rebounding on the left ramp on some of them. Anything with a green zip tie is good to play. Red have minor rebounds. I expanded the drop hole on them and that improved them alot. I will be selling version 4 ramps going forward. Posting pictures of the 3 sets on this post for sale. Shipping is included to anywhere in the u.s only, excluding alaska and hawaii.

#212 14 days ago

First I want to thank everyone for the interest in these wireforms. I am happy to say that this last version #4 is what I am going to be selling. A couple of things have changed on my end. We started a LLC for tax reasons (LoganPinball). And from this point on I am making this version only and I will be polishing every set. Its a good thing to do on my end as I see the quality of all the welds in doing so and correct any that need it. I have also decided that doing assembly line building is not good enough for me. I am doing one set at a time and I am walking from my garage to my game room with every bracket, supports and walls. The quality difference in this way of building shows up at the end. I am very proud of these last two sets I have made. They look amazingly better. I hope I don’t loose too many of you off the list, but I understand if you want to drop out. I need to charge for the labor involved in this level of rails.Please send me a message and I will update the list. Here are pictures and a video showing the quality of these rails.

$220 Shipped to U.S. except Alaska and Hawaii.
All other shipping will be determined to your location. I am shipping in 24” uline shipping tubes that are 3 1/4 inch diameter. They will be bubble wrapped and secure for delivery. I will be sending everything UPS ground.

$200 @ Pinfest or in person

Sounds good. I would post to the Star Wars page after you are done. Lots of Pros out there and I am certain you would have no problem selling.

Star Wars Pro ramps are entirely plastic and don't cross the game. I don't feel there is a need for wireforms and it would involve cutting your original ramps in order to insert a wireform somewhere.

Hey! I sincerely appreciate the hold! If someone else wants that set, I will go ahead and get a set of version 4's polished and let someone else get the deal!

#217 13 days ago

I think I was verry early ordering 5 sets but since the price almost gone up 60% ...... so I’m out . As I also have to have them send to the netherlands as we agreed . and with tax etc it’s to much

So that’s 5 spots that can help out other people

Good luck

#218 13 days ago

I’m still in for a set of version 4 for $220 shipped. Loganpinball, did people put in orders for multiple sets? If so I’m wondering how you feel about fulfilling everyone’s order for 1 set and then circling back to get the multiple orders fulfilled.

Amsl was #27 on list. Sorry to loose anyone, but I understand. The price increase is all to cover the increase in the labor time to do them right. I only have one more multiple order, but they might drop out as well. Austrailia 4 sets. When I closer to them on the list we will see where we are at.

Thanks! I am trying to build one ramp a day during the week because I had to scrap all the others. Did one right side tonight.

Brought some rods to work to mess around at lunch time. My razor crest is falling apart! I think I am going to try and build a replacement with the rods. Not a skeleton as in picture, but think of the ship built completely out of rods in 3d. I can see it in my head. I layed this out on my desk and I see possibility. Done right I think it would work. Again, unless I try I have no idea if it will..

#227 11 days ago

You've done great work on the wire-form ramps, but with all due respect I think anything like the saber or razor crest made out of rods is only gonna appeal to welders

Not selling them. Its only an idea for my game only. I get it. I see something in my head and I am that guy that will try it.

Still doing one rail a day. Got another set ready, just need to tweak right.

This machine is getting hammered!

Starting to ship sets. I am including these instructions with the wireforms, I figure it was a good idea to post here as well.
I have my game leveled using pinguy app. It works great when your by yourself and your game should be very close to mine.
If you need to make any bending adjustments on brackets please see pictures about bending away from a weld.

Rebounding if needed ( higher pitched games) can be tuned in by bending the top rail above the drop out hole towards the center of drop out. The impact point is the top rail. There is a sweet spot. I have them adjusted to my machine. It should be good or very close as is. But, if you want to adjust take rails off machine and take a pair of pliers and put them down over the U shaped support and bend forward or backwards lightly. If you do adjust that point, double check that the lower rails are still flat. If they bend you can straighten with hand pressure. I will post a picture later of that point.

My artist will not have the alternate artwork TNA cabinet done in time for the show in Allentown so I am doing nothing but making wireforms all weekend as a result. But if anyone is interested this TNA project is also on the forum. Here is one side completed on cabinet. The yellow voltage warnings are not lettered yet. From here on out I will only post Mando wireform info here.

Pinfest is next Friday and I need to get on it. Its way cooler at night welding which helps. And my 6 year old son is sleeping! That is huge.. No distractions. In a groove right now, going untill the wheels fall off tonight. I will keep posting my dementia!

Your work is appreciated. I just tonight had the first opportunity I've had to play an LE/Premium version of the machine, and the wireforms make a *world* of difference. So much better than those stupid "clear" plastic ramp extensions going clear across the playfield, blocking views, etc. Every Pro should have these things. Really.

#239 8 days ago

These are fantastic and perfectly address one of my few complaints on this pin! I hope everyone appreciates not only the time each set takes to make, but also how many hours you've already spent in iterative development!

#240 8 days ago

Thanks! I love the game. It is a great shooting machine.

1:45 am. Wheels are starting to wobble!

Dialing in rebounds is kicking my ass.. So, I did a search online on wireforms and saw staggered rails solved this issue. I will post video when I get a set done. They are so much faster and i wont waste hours tweaking the end.

Hope they do you well. I made another revision with staggered rails. No adjustments needed other than brackets. All the time I put into tweaking ramps is staggering!

#248 8 days ago

I only sent out one of the completed forms to an operator. I am sending him revised version for free. The set I gave him should be fine, but the right thing to do is send him a pair of these..

Quick play of them on game video below. Did not go crazy aligning in lane, but you can really see the difference. The good out of all of this is now I should be able to hammer out the list far quicker now. It was really frustrating tuning them. Each one is different and acted its own way.

1 take away from this project is... You're getting a lot better at those ramp shots. Really appreciate all you're putting into this.

I turn off ramp divertor and all I do is shoot at both ramps. Over a hundred games of just aiming for ramps! And The ones I made worked, but required alot of tuning in the right bends to get the ball to drop well. Real pain in the ass. It was crazy. Now these are make put on and just make sure they are good. I have not adjusted any of the bends or welds. Big difference..

Got two sets of these done. Bolt on and play! The past two weeks were a bust.
