Just curious if anyone knows where I can score a new backglass for my Abra Ca Dabra? My google search came up empty

Ron Web (Homestead) used to sell them but lost the printing company he used. You can order from Bgresto. He doesn’t do silk screen printing, but his results are really good. He travels a lot for his day job, so he only replies to emails on the weekends.

The Ron Webb ones look great but are not a correct fit size wise. Don’t ask how I know.

That's strange as I have one in my game.

I don’t think he’s traveling as much during a pandemic. Also people who travel as much as Steve are experts in communications. Why do people soften the blow here?
It should read “You can use Steve, he’ll respond whenever he feels like it, if at all”
If I had a dollar for every post I see about Steve’s response time I’d have enough money to buy another backglass from him.

I don't want to use bgresto. Last time it took forever to get my glass with zero communication. Honestly I'll just keep my shitty glass over dealing with that again.
Maybe I just need to post a WTB ad for a Ron Webb version? Noone else made them?

Interesting. Every time I contact him I get a prompt reply.

Maybe if you're not an ass about things maybe response time is better. People think they're the only ones ordering and should get what they want, chop chop, from a guy who does this as a sideline. And thank God he does it, because a lot of games with bad backglasses are saved because Shay and Ron Webb simply aren't going to do a lot of the less popular games that Steve does.

Did you get it in the end? Would you have gotten a glass at all if not for bgresto?

Seriously, you'd rather have a shitty glass than wait awhile for a great looking new one? What's the hurry? You can keep your shitty glass while you wait so what's the difference?

The bg resto glass I received looked like shit for various reasons. It's not just the communication aspect.
This thread isn't a debate about bgresto I'm just looking for options. Go kiss his ass in another thread.

Put up a WTB ad for one of Ron Webb’s reproductions. I think it’s been ran more than once in the last ten years. Some people in the hobby buy one (or more) in case they find a game that needs one. You might be able to shake one loose.

Get me an original and I can do a translite from it, i'm pretty slow these days, could probably crank it out rather quickly.
I've got two others pending but I'm waiting on the originals to work from.
I know it's not the same but...just an option.

I have Ron Webb ABRA...the thing has about a hundred dust particles under the paint, and a split in the wizards robe. Buy with caution.

Could you do it with a high res scan? I've got access to a flatbed scanner.

Absolutely.

I bought a Flipper Clown glass off of him a few years back which had some tiny pinholes in it.when I told him about it he promptly sent me another one no charge.
