bump-

Engaged Ingo, PayPal sent for one of each type of board. Mine works great but still buying Just Because ... you never know.

Thanks for doing this Leon and Ingo!

#309 3 years ago

Just put my order in.

#310 3 years ago

I'm in!
Thank you all for doing this hobby so easy with things like these boards
And of course, thanks to Leon for showing us the way. RIP.

#311 3 years ago

WOW guys ... you are all so great!!!!

E-mail contact and all was so uncomplicated as I have never seen before.
I thank you for your great faith. It's not easy to order from someone from a foreign country, you do not know.

And now it will go on very fast. All parts are already here, all parts are sorted and bended (about 5000 resistors and diodes!!), all is prepared for soldering.

And the best: The PCBs will arrive on thursday this week, means in 2-3 days. Got the first fotos from the pcb-manufacturer of the single LEON-board today. I am very excited and can hardly expect, to hold the real boards in my hands.

The board looks better than I ecpected

To be honest, I don't know who Leon is. Is he a member here? I can gather that he came up with the idea and such?

Yes, the idea is from Leon, see post#7.

This is Leon, one of the greatest pinball-experts ever:

looks great cant wait to get mine, Quick question, back in the thread somewhere someone mentioned adding some holes or pins to power some light mod,did that make it in the final boards? if so are they labeled on the board? thanks

#323 3 years ago

Looking great! Do you happen to know when you might be shipping the kits (no rush)?

As fast as possible, the first one will go out in 1 week and the last ones in about 2 weeks. I will give my best!!!!

#326 3 years ago

We need to make two cables to install the board, correct?

Great to hear! Thanks for all you've done to make this happen.

Quoted from jsa:

Naturally NOT, all necessary cable are sent with the boards. Not everybody has the proper tool, to press the wires into the connector. I use high quality connectors from ITW-PANCON. One side of the cables has a protection cap, this side of the cables has to be put in the connectors on the Leon-Board, so anybody has to care, what cable has to be put where.

That's beautiful, Ingo. Thank you for including the cables. You're a professional operation, indeed.

Here is a little video with the single trunk-opto-board together with the little tester - you see, you can test the board outside of the pinball machine:

Nice video. Looking forward to getting the combo board installed.

#337 3 years ago

An inside view into the "mass-production" - the hardest parts are the small 0805 smd -leds - I have to solder about 1000 of these little leds

Hi Ingo,

That tester board for the TOM board is really slick. Do you have a similar tester board that works with your TZ clock board?

Thanks.

Gord

#339 3 years ago

Support this dude. What a favor he's doing for TOM owners, regardless of price!

YES, I have - for all products I build, I have a tester.

You can see my tester for the TZ-Clock-Board here, post #39 + #41 - you can see there my tester and the one I have built for borygard (rob has the better one ):

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/now-available-ingos-tz-clock-board-borygard-le-version

A few years ago I even built a tester for both my TZ-clock-Board and the orginal TZ-clock-Board. This tester was hand-etched and is in australia, see following pics:

TZ-clock Tester 1.jpg

TZ-clock Tester 2.jpg

I do not have this universal tester for myself, but have this one only built one times for my friend Rob in australia.

Here is the first video of my TZ-clock-Board (I think, it was board revision 1.0) ever with the tester built on bread-board.

Why do you ask, do you have problems with the clock board?

No problems, I recently ordered both a TZ clock board and TOM combo board from you. It will be great to have a tester board should the need ever arise. The idea of a tester board to fully test the optos is a great idea.

I was told that my recent order will be shipped out in the next 3-4 weeks or so which is fine.

Thanks.

#342 3 years ago

Thank you Ingo! Just sent paypal for the all-in-one assembled board.

Question -- does this work well with the auto-eddy board? If I understand correctly, it may mean a delay in hits as the board powers back up, but that would be an acceptable tradeoff to prevent the trunk from stopping.

Thanks again!

bhwolf

#343 3 years ago

IF I understand correct the power is never cut, it was designed to cut The signal... But i May be wrong....

Can we get a small indication IF some boards already has been shipped?

It works perfect with the original auto-eddy board and with the pinbits auto-eddy board. Somewhere in this thread is written, that we changed the layout to cutting the signal-line instead of the power to the eddy-board. So no problems in any case.

fantastic- this is great news. I have and love the pin-bits. error free, just right sensitive trunk!? worth every penny!

#346 3 years ago

Production is running and makes progress - it is more work, than I expected (only for the cables I have to do about 1200 presses for the wires) - but I am working very hard.

I will begin to ship gradually within this week, so therefore I beg you all still for a bit patience.

WOW! Very cool. I am very impressed with all the work you have put into this. The price you are charging for assembly is very reasonable. I'm sure after you were bombarded with orders and got into assembly, you probably thought, "what was I thinking? This is going to take way more time than I imagined." Thanks for everything.

#348 3 years ago

This is one high quality looking board!

Payment sent.

Thank you Ingo!

#349 3 years ago

Lots of work but looks great. You might need to expand your workforce.
