    Ted,

    Bumping this back up as it is now after July

    Any more progress on this? I have a custom game in the works and this may be just the ticket for the backglass and plastics.

    cheers,

    Quoted from spfxted:

    ... my guy took another big job for the machine.

    Thanks for following up Ted...the big jobs pay for the machine much more expediently than pinball work trickling in would. It's the willing attitude to help move our small hobby forward that is worth the wait.

    cheers,

    Quoted from spfxted:

    For sure. When he first asked me, I told him probably hundreds of people would like a custom plexiglass backglass. In months we made 4 and 2 were my samples!

    Ted,

    I think the slow engagement you've experienced is not an issue with desire, it's typical of organic exposure.

    Had you presented the niche with a product that had;

    - a rock solid process with consistent product results
    - known compatible product materials and capabilities
    - price structure
    - order process and timelines
    - lots of examples of the product

    I believe the response would have been more aligned to your expectations.

    Instead, the feel I got from the start was..."hey, check out this new opportunity for making pinball backglass and plastics. We're going to experiment a little and see what we can do." As you know, many do not want to be financially on the front end of new ideas/products, so choose to wait until all the kinks are ironed out.

    If your business partner is sincere about filling large order down time with pinball products, a bit of diligence toward these concerns would certainly increase awareness, build desire, and provide a consistent revenue stream.

    I'm stoked on the opportunity to bring a few ideas to fruition, as I believe many are, but a bit more formal structure to facilitate it is needed.

    Just a few well intentioned critiques...I am hopeful this comes to fruition for y'all.

    cheers,

    rody
