I’m sure it’s been asked but is there a way we can get them without clear? I need a new SW playfield but I would rather use my own clear on it
Yes the production ones I am working on now will be available for $100 US off for those that want to do the finish clear coats themselves. Power was restored to the workshop last night. Day #3 of recovery after the hurricane. 2 of the 3 indoor public pools I work at still had no power in the city.
Today I was at the printer picking up backglass, & the other 4 Seawitch cut playfields at the sign shop. So the first 22 Seawitch production with yellow arrows are in the shop. Next week the 20 old stock playfield blanks of 100 go to the sign shop for Seawitch. It is more likely they get cut this month, but it depends on the production demands of the shop. Also picked up more supplies for epoxy glueing of inserts. Sanding will continue to have playfields ready for the printer this month.
I was sanding very briefly tonight until light showers. Had to get a Seawitch glass boxed, & minor epoxy repairs to some lenses (mostly Star Gazer).
Picked up a cold from my wife. Still sanding the first 8 of 22 production Seawitch. I am having a problem with finding 3/4 inch trans blue lenses. So while I sort this out I will just use playfields already cut. Might ask the German guys if they have them ready. Northern Precision Plastics has gone silent, & Foremost Plastics is always hard to get stuff. Still slow on selling test playfields for Seawitch with white arrows. Standby pre paid guys for Seawitch production with yellow arrows.
I assume you're talking about Mirco for the inserts. I'm sure they can supply you, but I hope you find them elsewhere. The tooling is very visible in the translucent inserts.
I have yet to see them lit in a game, but from the playfield pics I've seen it's one of those things that my eyes are immediately drawn to. Not a dealbreaker, but I hope you can find inserts that look like the originals.
