Ordered my backglass and plastic set today. Let's get these playfeild happening.

#102 1 year ago

Bought another Strange World so I'm back in.

Messaged op couple weeks ago. No response. Does this mean it's dead?

Nope!
Boilerman is on here, he just spends less time on Pinside, than he use to be in the past. More time on restorations, and possibly life, and work. (I would guess)

Would really like to see this get done but we need a commitment from 25 people and many on the original list were from 2 years ago.

Let's see if we can get a current list going

In the last month we have 3. If your on the original list and are still interested please chime in.

1) Mitch (I'll buy 2 if needed)
2) Grizlyrig
3) Tyamry

Bump it up anyone else. Need to get to 25

#109 1 year ago

I thought 20 was the magic number. That's what it was for SkyJump. You might want to PM the original interested people in case they miss your post. I would take two if needed to get it done.

I will start sending pms out. Wade said in a recent email to him that he needs 25 firm commitments.

1) Mitch (I'll buy 2 if needed)
2) Grizlyrig
3) Tyamry
4) topcard ( 2 if needed)

So we are at 6.

I've sent a pm to everyone on the original list. A few have sold there games already including the OP boilerman.

Cool to see this is still alive. I just came in possession of this game. I have never ordered a repro PF yet. A few noob questions if anyone doesn't mind:

1- Does it make sense to try to ship to Canada, or better to ship to US if I live ~1 hour from border?
2- Do these repro playfields come clear coated?
3- Anything else? Basically, carefully take off PF mechanical components from the old board, and screw on to the new board, and drop in? [I know this is a big task], just wanted to make sure inlays are set and holes are pre-drilled etc?

Thank you-

To answer your first question, I'm sure there's not much difference shipping to Canada. CPR ships from Canada to the US all the time and it's reasonable. I believe in the US Wade charges $70 and it comes in a wooden crate that is the best packed playfield you will ever receive.

The playfields have a coating that is just like what came on an original EM playfield. So no, they don't look like a hi gloss CPR playfield, which is good, as it would look odd in an old wedgehead. Assuming your game is getting home played only, it should serve you well for years to come.

Everything is pre dimpled or drilled. You will need to drill holes yourself where it is dimpled. If you are mechanically inclined, the process isn't that difficult, though your first swap will be time consuming, probably 15-20 hours. If you search the forum, you will find some great threads that will explain how to do a swap. I'll leave you with three words of advice: take a million pictures from all angles, and then take a million more, buy a furniture upholstery staple removal tool, and order all new plastics (posts, rollover guides, pop bumper bodies etc.) unless yours are in incredible shape. Otherwise they will look like crap on a brand new playfield. Good luck!

Thank you for the detailed answers. It sounds great to me.

For whomever is managing the 'list', if I could be added for 1 playfield, I would be quite grateful. Working from the $700 estimate.. not sure if it is more now.

Also, if there is a 'Glossy Clear coat' option, I would not mind paying more for it.. I know it is not as pure as the original look, but I have played a cleared Quick Draw and thought it looked pretty sharp... but beggars can't be choosers, so I'm happy with the normal finish if that is the only option.

Thanks again-
