The other problem I had was the rug spotlight wasn’t working and was aimed at the flippers. Found the connector under the playfield was off by one pin. Plugged it in correctly and aimed the spot at the rug. I wish will problems were so easily solved.

Quoted from MR-808:

I was having the same problem with mine when I got it. Neither had any vertical play. Loosened the flipper shafts, inserted my homemade gapping tool (a credit card with a slot cut in it), and tightened the cranks to the shafts again. Much better!
That we both had the same problem on recent builds suggests that someone at the factory doesn’t know how to properly install flippers.

I assumed they tested them before shipping. One two minute ball would have exposed my two issues.

Quoted from Livin:

Got an email from CoinTaker tonight stating “Your order has been shipped.”
Looks like that means my machine has arrived and is awaiting shipment to me. I was told I’ll get tracking when it ships my way Monday. Sharing for others for insight on the process.
My timeline has been….
9/10/23- Deposit
3/4/24- Paid in Full
5/31/24- Notice of Fulfillment
6/3/24- Tentative Expectation of Ship to Home
Obviously a few more steps till done but progress is great! Looks like things are speeding up. Thanks to all those Early Achievers who sacrificed to make it possible.

UPDATE: I’ve since received tracking info and it’s moved from PA to GA. Estimated delivery to TX is now Monday or Tuesday of next week. Of course the inevitable delays are always looming but making progress.

FINAL UPDATE:

3/4/24- Paid in Full
5/31/24- Notice of Fulfillment
6/12/24- Latest call to freight co checking on delivery appointment was told Monday, 6/17. Couldn't bear just missing another weekend so drove an hour to pick it up myself at the loading dock.
6/12/24- Home!!

I expect that from July the lead deltimes are gonna be like 1 month. Last couple of months we have been shipping mainly to US in order to catch up on the US backlog which we saw a prio 1.

If you look at CT website this is also stated.

With CT as master distributor you will see also extra distros being added.

now patiently awaiting a tracking number and delivery notification. the wait hasn't been too bad comparatively to some. These last few days sure are taking a long time though. the relativistic nature of time while waiting is always fascinating.

Melissa is out of the country till Mon, I would expect pinballs to start rolling then. I've got a few goodies waiting in that bag.

Curious: when you say "master distributor," is that implying they're middleman to the new distros? Would make sense from an overseas shipping standpoint I suppose.

I just keep getting told “two weeks”, then “oh, this shipment didn’t have any lit aprons or mirror blades or HD glass. I’ll remind Barry for the next shipment.” Then “two weeks.” Wash, rinse, repeat. Paid my invoice on 11/9/23.

I feel your pain. I'm in a similar but not quite the same boat. Honest transparency would go so far in this situation.

It's been 5 weeks since I received an email from coin taker stating my order was shipping from them. Two weeks since I last talked with Mellissa checking in and was told it was there and will be shipped soon. All the email did was get my hopes up for the machine to be delivered. At first it was maybe before Father's Day or before fourth of July. So now maybe before end of summer? I guess I'll call every two weeks and see what they say.

At this point, why not every few days. Put the pressure on.

With a little help from Rensh and Mellissa to locate a shipping issue, I now finally have a TBL on the way. I have a tracking number and it is enroute about halfway. Super excited.

DAMN!! I read that as "5/31/23" at first and I was still thinking that's faster than usual.

I expect that the long waiting times are over as we have shipped a lot of games to CT and waiting list after upcoming July shipment, if not already, is gonna be like max 1 month long.

This is also mentioned on CT website.

Thanks for the update, Rensh. Does that include machines with the Starry Lit Apron option? Are you shipping out lots of those lately as well? I suspect the addition of that option on my order is why it's taking so long.

I’m not great at math but it hurts my brain that people who order now will have a TBL in 30 days, when I don’t yet have the game I ordered in November.

We ship what’s ordered. For us CT is the, appreciated, customer, no the enduser. Can imagine however that for certain config it could take a little longer. We had I think 2 shipments ago a shortage in starry aprons, perhaps that’s causing still some slack?

Hi guys. I put down the 1k depsoit in April but I am now picking up a new out of the box machine, so question is what do I do with the 1k deposit. Is this transferable if I find a buyer ?
