    We just discovered a 180 reverse ramp on rescue 911, that is supercool!
    Let's rip it out!

    #1809 1 year ago

    First things first,at dpo we noticed that the playfield stuck on something.
    It appeared to be the ufo ball lifter mech we installed last fridays.
    Mic cuts a bit of the bracket off..
    We found the safety goggles,so don't worry guys,i am safe!

    These 2 ramps need eachother,the left one is the rescue 911 original feed.
    Right is from roadshow i think?

    IMG_0566 (resized).JPG

    #1816 1 year ago

    Let's combine these two so the original size wire feed is in place
    This new idea is great,this ramp clears the under playfield ánd the lamp matrix at the flippers!

    IMG_0572 (resized).JPG

    IMG_0574 (resized).JPG

    #1817 1 year ago

    Yeah...awesome...just the way we planned (...)

    IMG_0577 (resized).JPG

    IMG_0578 (resized).JPG

    #1818 1 year ago

    This piece o ramp has a nice stop at the end..just might work :-/

    Let's

    IMG_0579 (resized).JPG

    #1820 1 year ago

    And after some spotwelds,we have a ramp that feeds your flipper directly,if you hold your flipper up,you catch the ball and play on!

    cool unique idea...

    to save rework down the track maybe consider putting some sides rails (lhs and rhs) to then design around

    I love our playfield,it will be sooo cool,we talked layout all night and we have great plans.
    Spoiler alert: we decided to redo the backbox..it just screams mansion?
    So yes,again a big crazy house backbox,a castle like mansion with the talking heads in the towers.
    We can change moods of the faces with different colors led.
    So when one gets angry,the light will be reddish..
    Everybody(you guys)liked our backbox style and at dpo we decided to make that our trademark.
    3d backboxes with integrated fun mechanics!

    great idea re the backbox and the talking heads - cool signature for your games

    #1828 1 year ago

    Love the idea for your signature part, you should incorporate a little bit of the minions... maybe Gur's car could be parked in the mansion garage or something like that....

    Quoted from swinks:

    Yeah,we need to make a 3d backbox,feels right.
    Something is wrong with this square one we currently have.

    Hey Amigos, any updates on public availability of the Pinball Amigos t-shirts you talked about recently? Ready to buy...

    Bedankt!

    #1834 1 year ago

    The shirts need a bigger area of a lighter color to make space for autographs. We will need that.

    #1835 1 year ago

    Count me in for an autographed shirt!

    #1836 1 year ago
    Quoted from PinballBJB:

    Hey Amigos, any updates on public availability of the Pinball Amigos t-shirts you talked about recently? Ready to buy...
    Bedankt!

    We totally get back to you on that next friday.
    You can also choose white shirt with our autographs!
    Do white permanent markers excist?
    Then we will totally sign the black ones too.
    I am getting an estimate next friday for envelope shipping,so you know exactly how much a Pinball Amigos shirt will set you back

    I meant what I said. I wasn't being sarcastic at all. I think these guys have awesome energy, and build some really cool stuff. I was being sincere.

    I got your back Fooped, the amigos are the coolest. Catching up on the Friday thread every week, it's a nice diversion from the stress of an average work week. Pour a nice quality beer and see what's happening, its something I look forward too. Who else takes the time to document their build with a weekly update? You can count on the amigos for an entertaining live update including responses to our occasional posts and actually taking our feedback to heart and incorporating it into the build. Pretty awesome stuff. Three beers to the Pinball Amigos !!

    Not white but there a silver one that would work great.

    First things first,our shop vacuum cleaner refused to suck crap,after inspection,the bag was about to explode
    I had to tape the full one up,it was puking dust just sitting hahaha.
    Nice and fresh baggie my little green friend...can you believe it,someone threw him in the trash,these are real strong vacuum cleaners and i took it home figuring the motor needed new brushes...(i don't have too but i like fixing stuff and me and my girl are super thrifty )
    Came home,plugged it in and it worked perfectly?
    And it is even my favorite color!
    So now Henry is my favorite hoover in the house

    So earlier this week i had to look up a metal fab shop i did business with a few years back...they were moved and now a superbig business!!
    I asked him if he could bend new side blades for the playfield reinforcement.
    I took this one off sega baywatch.
    I wanted them in our style!
