I had the pleasure of visiting Chuck this weekend, during an open house pin party....and Thank you for Hosting and Feeding US!

I wanted to share a couple of things, first, the amount of work that Chuck and his wife go through to produce these....
dust, kitchen tables, oh my gosh, I dont think many wives would go through this!

The Walls themselves are a joy to see, hold and install. An exceptional Job, from a talented man!

Now, if you saw his other work...Wood grained LOTR, and a Sword! Artwork, Hand drawings in his Studio...
(maybe you wont mind sharing a picture of your LOTR!)

I hope Chuck continues to find avenues of bringing his talent to Pinball!

I am grateful!

#202 5 years ago

I am as well. A skeptic at first ...... (due to my wife influence)... But Hell Yes!......... I would do it again in a heartbeat.

#203 5 years ago

Wow these walls are so nice, cant wait to get mine!!

You will be happy. Believe me....

take your time on the installation. Treat it as nice as the fella that constructed it.... and you will be really happy.

I have 2 sets left in stock from the last batch. The production time is about a week and I make around 10 sets each time... These walls have been popular world wide and everyone is very pleased with the way they look on their machine.

Amen to that.

#215 5 years ago

I bought your WOZ castle wall (plus witches cage) a few months ago and could not be happier. I could say the same for your shooter rods. I mean this guy makes some really nice mods. Very high quality. The price is more than reasonable.

#216 5 years ago

I also bought modfather's castle walls and cage and must say it looks fantastic. Nicely done. Purchase with confidence.

Will you be making an updated kit to include the wall around the witch?

#219 4 years ago
Quoted from marspinball:

I'm currently working on a supplement to the standard castle wall package that I still currently fabricate. The supplement will include the curved back wall behind the witch and the curved well that sits in front of the witch. I still have to create the custom brackets and the fitting to mesh in together with the original sets that I made. Should have something by the end of the week.

#220 4 years ago

I'm definitely in for a set when everything is done.

#221 4 years ago

Look forward to seeing this!

Exceptional Work, Chuck!

#222 4 years ago

I want a set too when the mods are done

#223 4 years ago

Take my money now!!!

Seriously, I'm in on a complete set when ready. Thanks.

Any update on this?????

it's finally here, the witches well has been designed. The well is made the same way as the classic WOZ walls I currently fabricate. The same color , texture and materials were used . Each well is hand carved with a latex outer covering, giving it strength and durability against any ball strikes. The back wall had to be strong, thin and hold its shape , so the witch doesn't rub against the back. I have the well sets available for 40 bucks plus 8 for shipping nationwide.

The Well looks awesome!!!...I have Matts walls, but think these might integrate.....I have a major concern however.....i appears there in no protection for the Witch herself from a ball strike ( don't think she's strong enough to take a direct hit.).....I've had a couple fly off the tube on occasion.....thoughts?.....thanks...mark

Does the witch need additional lighting?

#229 4 years ago
Quoted from TZBen:

Does the witch need additional lighting?

There is 2 led lights on either side of the witch. One white(activated on the way up ) and a red one ( activated on the way down). The lights reflect off the inside of the well and back wall "witch" is very cool. You can really see her "well" when she is not obstructed by things. The material is very durable against any ball strikes and will definitely hold up very "well".

#230 4 years ago

Can the witch itself take a direct hit from a ball w/o damage? Also, do you have a photo of the witch well by itself, prior to installation? Thanks.

#231 4 years ago

Looks awesome! Much better than the sneeze guard that came from the factory. Now you can at least see the witch!

#232 4 years ago
Quoted from redmamanora:

The back wall has a layer of rubber latex on it , which can absorb energy from a ball strike . The witches hat is about an 1/8 of an inch clearance from the back wall. If the witch got struck by a ball , her hat would be braced against the back wall and wouldn't bend back due to the minimal clearance that is left behind her. There is some movement and flexibility of the witch itself, and I believe she would be fine . The plastic that the actual witch itself is made from, it seems hard enough and durable as any other plastic. I personally have never had an air ball hit the tube or the cage when I had them installed. My playfield characters have never been damaged either.

#233 4 years ago

Thrilled! Amazing! Just ordered mine!

#234 4 years ago

Order placed!

doesn't this just beg now for a witch mod? I mean its about the only thing left for this to look awesome!

yeah , me too

#238 4 years ago

Taking the witch out of the tube makes her a lot more visible - one of those instances when doing somethings is both good news and bad news.

I think a better looking witch with a cape would be an instant buy along with the well mod.

#239 4 years ago

Beautiful work. But that "witching well" sure looks like a ball trap. These darn machines can put a ball in lots of places they cannot get out of.

The original prototype she melted down into her clothes like the movie. Or am I wrong? Either way someone needs to do that as a mod.

Any special combo deal for the walls and the well?

#243 4 years ago

I am sorry I can't reduce the price for both sets combined. Considering that each piece is individually carved , with multiple steps to create this look, they are very time consuming to make. If they were made from a mold , I could probably do that. If you were interested in any of my other WOZ mods, I am sure I could discount something for you. The walls have been very popular among owners, and I am glad JJP is shipping forward with their games.

Quoted from jsrfo:Any special combo deal for the walls and the well?

Got my Well and installed it yesterday (easy install) and it looks great! Excellent match to the walls from Modfather I had previously. Thanks again for another great mod!

Please keep us updated as to air balls hitting the witch.
Thanks, I worry about this.

Hello, can the well be installed alone on a 75th edition? Thanks. if yes, going to order a pair of these for me and a friend.

#247 4 years ago

I saw the added well in person on Sat. If my Standard WOZ ever ships, i have a set ready to install.
That being said, it looked EPIC!!!
Pictures do not do the well justice..
"Well Done "Modfather!!!.

Modfather, can the Witch well be installed on the 75th and blend in with the factory walls that came stock with that machine?

I'm waiting for an answer on this before ordering too.

Without a doubt this is FANTASTIC!

How do I order.

Thank you.
