Can someone (op) please put the contact info for ordering these on the front page?
I need one of these and it would be super helpful not to have to comb through 8 pages to find the contact info.

But past that, this is amazing and so helpful. Huge thanks for this.

#357 3 years ago

Op busy getting product out to customers, why are you unable to follow post and go to post 225 which has ordering instructions?

My wife and me were very busy over christmas and will begin to ship tomorrow gradually step by step. Tomorrow we will continue to solder further boards. I will keep you informed about the progress.

Forgot to mention, that all connectors are coded with these little sweet coding-pins, so there will be no chance, to put the connectors the wrong way:

#373 3 years ago

Simple question (hopefully) but I just wanted to double check. I just replaced my trunk eddy board with an auto-eddy from Pinbits. The "Trunk opto-board with Leon integrated" is completely separate than the eddy board and will work just fine with the eddy from PinBits? Right? I should just get the "Trunk opto-board with Leon integrated" and call it a day, right? Sorry I just want to make sure that I get what I need (which would be just the Leon board) but since I like things to look "original" then the single board gives that "integrated" look.

Thanks.

#374 3 years ago

I was wondering that too. My trunk eddy board is a little finiky.

#375 3 years ago

1.)
The trunk-opto-board has the function, to "controll" the function/position of the trunk only.

2.)
The eddy-sonsor-board has the function, to detect switch #85.

3.)
The Leon-Board corrects the following disgusting fault: The trunk going into 'error' mode, if you hit it while it's turning.

1.1.)
The original trunk-opto-board has a design flaw, thats the reason, why it sometimes is a troublemaker.

You have the following alternatives now:

a.)
If you have a working original trunk-opto-board, you can leave it as is and only take the single Leon-Board to correct the fault described in 3.).

b.)
You go with the very good GLM trunk-opto-board and only take the single Leon-Board to correct the fault described in 3.).

c.)
You go with my new single trunk-opto-baord and only take the single Leon-Board to correct the fault described in 3.).

1.2.)
You leave the original eddy-sensor-board in or go with much better pinbits auto-eddy-board.

Quoted from nickbuol:

Simple question (hopefully) but I just wanted to double check. I just replaced my trunk eddy board with an auto-eddy from Pinbits. The "Trunk opto-board with Leon integrated" is completely separate than the eddy board and will work just fine with the eddy from PinBits? Right?

Simple answer: YES

Quoted from nickbuol:

I should just get the "Trunk opto-board with Leon integrated" and call it a day, right?

YES. This is the trunk-opto-board, but improoved in opposite to the original trunk-opto board with the Leon-addition. They are only integrated on ONE PCB.

Quoted from nickbuol:

Sorry I just want to make sure that I get what I need (which would be just the Leon board) but since I like things to look "original" then the single board gives that "integrated" look.

If you want it look original, than you can go with the single trunk-opto-board or the GLM-board and put the single Leon-Board as an addition on top of the trunk-opto-board.
If you then want to have it look original, then you an take out the Leon-Board and all looks like original - BUT does that make sense? Then you have an original look and the disgusting fault described in 3.).

Hope, all questions are cleared up.

Example:

Look at this photo:

https://images.pinside.com/3/38/33893dfb5020d1f12fe1ffd04225a745802cc799/resized/large/33893dfb5020d1f12fe1ffd04225a745802cc799.jpg

Here is the good and reliable trunk-opto-board from GLM. There is no need to go with a new trunk-opto-board or an integrated board, so only a single Leon has to be used. Then you have the following result:

- You have a trunk-opto-board, that does not make any troubles
- you have the Leon-board, so fault 3.) is eliminated
- depending on what eddy board you have, you can be free of errors, with pinbits no errors, original eddy-board not so reliable

#376 3 years ago

Awesome detailed response. Thank you so much! PM sent.

#377 3 years ago

Payment sent. Thank you again for working this up for everyone.

#378 3 years ago

Salut,

Happy new year from France.

Payment sent and quite keen to get one of these nice boards to make my TOM even better.

Thanks to Ingo,
Cheers,

#380 3 years ago

Thanks Ingo: A Californian is now looking forward to your obviously very fine work. Thanks for doing this as my TOM was temperamental, and seemed only to do this if I got into a VERY good game.

Looking forward to upgrading my machine.

Best for the new year!

#381 3 years ago

One last endorsement from me while everyone waits patiently (or not!) for your boxes from Ingo.

I tried both the Leon and the Combo board in my game today and both functioned perfectly, as expected. Top quality workmanship and materials on the boards - it's hard to imagine that one man designed and assembled these. The only downside is that you're not going to be able to look at these beauties while you're playing!

So cool to see this project go from an idea to a (better than) commercial board in just a few months. Thumbs up, Ingo!

#382 3 years ago

Box arrived today, one more TOM free from errors! Works great and easy to install..
Many thanks to you Ingo, your wife, son and Leon - may he rest in peace.

#383 3 years ago

Mine just arrived today too! Can't wait to install it later tonight! Thanks again Ingo and Leon (RIP).

UPDATE: Just played a bunch of games with the new board. It's perfect! I feel like I have a brand new ToM. Anyone on the fence about this board/fix should just pull the trigger. It's awesome. You'll have no regrets.

#384 3 years ago

Yes, just ordered the combo board. Thanks Ingo, for the solution for the trunk problem.

#385 3 years ago

Works like a charm, cheap, and easy install. Installed in a little more than 2 minutes.

One of my best 'mods' so far!

#386 3 years ago

Installation took minutes and works perfectly. This is a great addition to the game!

Thanks Ingo!

I was waiting patiently. But seeing others receive and enjoy them makes me wish mine comes soon.

#388 3 years ago

Ingo, just received my boards today and couldn't wait to install it on my own machine. It's working exactly as it should. Thanks for building this and putting so much heart and soul into it!

Also, thanks to the rest of the community here who contributed, it's really a testament to what a community can do.

Leon, RIP man. Wish you could see this.

Salut,

As far as I know it is still possible to order.
Just let Ingo some time to answer as he is very busy to prepare all the boards.

Cheers,
flugs

#394 3 years ago

All PMs for the "latecomers" are answered now.

Short update:

My wife, my son and me are very busy working on soldering the boards.

Anybody must have fear for his boards.

Many are already shipped, but the time frame changes a little bit.

The next 20 boards will be shipped tomorrow, 11.01.2016.

Then there are still 24 boards to be done. These will be shipped between 15. to 18.01.2016. Then all regular orders are done.

I hope for you understanding - it is much more work, than I thought.
Do not look only look at the list, there were some guys, who ordered 5 or more boards.

I give my best, to ship as fast and soon as possible.

I did not post the term "SHIPPED" to the list, to prevent that jealousy arises

I have a tracking number for each package. Within the next week, I will send tracking number by PM, if I haven´t it done yet.

- Ingo

Ingo,

The pinball community owes you a debt of gratitude. This is a really wonderful thing you've done. And you've made one of the best games even better. I know it was a ton of work for you.

Thank you!

I am first on his list but have yet to get mine! WTF!!! Just kidding!

Ingo, thank you so much for getting this done. I can only image the amount of work this is and, just like everyone else, really appreciate the effort! Amazing to have a "we need this" thread become a reality in such a short time!
