    Hi all! So what plastic ramps that have not been reproduced and are in dire need? I’m guessing maybe certain Gottlieb ramps?? Considering looking into a run of something if there’s a sufficient need. Obviously it would have to be a good/popular game to be able to make enough and to get costs down per part!

    Thanks

    I'd contact freeplay40 and starship fantasy they work together to make sure they dont make the same ramps as each other.
    Maybe see what people are looking for that they arnt in cue to make.

    JodyG makes mostly Gottlieb Ramps, but makes others:

    Also a lot of people have asked for Demolition Man Ramps.

    I'd like to see Roadshow ramps (even if clear) and the Corvette skidpad ramp.

    Johnny Mnemonic (i guess these would be very expensive to re-make) and the blue LAH ramp.

    this times 1000, very hard to find a blackwater with good ramps. I want one but pass on them because of the ramps

    I don't think I500 ramps are available anywhere.

    I also need Baywatch and Grand Lizard.

    It's looking like this thread should be called "What Ramps AREN'T Needed" Of course, you said good popular, so I guess my ramps may stay borked.

    Seen a set of these ramps for sale in the market a couple days ago.

    I have a few questions...
    1) Did Stern and all the other builds of pinball machines make their own ramps?
    2) Do they still have the tooling to reproduce these parts?
    3) if outsourced does the supplier have the right to run the tooling and sell the ramps?
    4) Would it be cost effective to make and inventory 25-50 ramps for games with less than 2,000 units produced?

    Many parts out there are unobtainium and finding used is difficult.

    I was fortunate to buy a lockdown bar for my GTB Atlantis here on Pinside. The Pinball Resource had sold out of their run of reproductions.

    I know a guy that needs a Data East POTO main red ramp.
    The game was left outside to long and the ramp is melted.

    I sent stern an e-mail about tron right ramp and recieved a reply that they have none in stock, and would not be remaking them.

    #45 1 year ago

    TMNT. They are almost always cracked. Several years ago you couldn't find them anywhere. Not sure if anyone makes them.
