You have no idea how many times I've seen that guy when I was researching this thing.
Those look beautiful. I hope the list opens up agian and I am able to get one for my machine. Nice work!
Anyone wanting out of their spot? I would like to get in on this mod as a late arrival
North suburbs. Just went down to Keg and Case tonight, Clutch brewery has some good drinks there. Nice seeing some Minnesota love from out of state places. The best was probably the dangerous man brewery sticker I spotted at the top of the church in Iceland.
My package is scheduled to arrive today and I’m the 19th name on list. No idea if they’re being shipped in batches, though.
I believe that the reason so many people signed up so quickly for the monkey is mot just that Steve is a true craftsman, but he’s also reliable and is committed to quality. Easy for me to say (soon), but it’s a good thing that rushing and cutting corners doesn’t get monkeys out the door faster.
Yeah. This one is a bit different since I took everyone on at one time. But I had to give myself a finish line somewhere, so that's the way I chose to do it. I also knew this would take a while, but after the monkeys I've made so far, I decided to spend most of my free time making parts. I'd rather have everything ready to go instead of going back and making molds, repeating the whole process, etc. But I can only make about three to four pieces in an hour, so multiply that by five parts with sanding and painting and assembly and it's a pretty time consuming process. I've doubled up on the molds so it shouldn't take long. Once I have a bigger stockpile of parts, I'm going to make bigger batches and list everyone in that batch on the thread so you'll have a better understanding of my progress as opposed to guessing when I'm going to PM you. The good news is that so far everyone is really happy with the mod, and that's what matters most to me.
I had emailed you privately right after the list closed....please add me to the list of people looking for this mod if you have others left or make more...
Every time I log into pinside, I immedately look for a pm hoping that its a pm from Steve telling me its my turn....
Do any of you have a LED light mod for your red smoke mod? Just wondering if I should get one to have ready when I make my initial install. https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1016-lermods/01069-wizard-of-oz-pinball-led-strip-witch-smoke-light-mod
I have this mod and I highly recommend it as it makes the red smoke more realistic and brighter.
Quoted from MK6PIN:
Counted again...Are you 20? Still come up w 31 for me...Fuzzy math, or wrong list..
People ordered multiples.
By the way, mine is paid for and waiting for it to arrive.

I know I have already asked Steve to be put on the Monkey Mod wait list - but please let me know if anyone has one or will have one for sale. I was lucky enough to get the Red Smoke and Witch Mod and this appears to be a must have as well. Just too late to the party.
Thanks - DEX
I don't exactly know my spot in line....but I am willing to go to the very end. I have no problem waiting until last.
was just checking in to see the updates as I havent checked since getting my name on the list. Looking absolutely amazing of course! And loving that everyone who's got one is enjoying them. Now I kick myself for checking in......I was doing so well and now i'll be watching the inbox icon....damnit. Cant wait Gouvia! Such a labor of love here.
Quoted from pinballinreno:
same here. I dont know where I am on the list either.
Im not in a hurry and am willing to wait for a final, dialed in product.
It’s not the product being dialed in, I’m just patient. I don’t have my WOZ at the moment anyway. I just volunteered to wait because I’m the nicest guy I know
Thanks DCFAN! Nice pic. To everyone else, they are coming. It’s raining pretty hard here in SD, so I got some painting done before work this afternoon. Working on about twenty right now.
#31 received. Looks awesome!
Can’t install until some renovation work is complete. But I look forward to seeing it in action!
Good to hear Froggy and 27Dnasty. It’s a tricky one but not too difficult. Glad the video helped.
so How do you make these? 3D printer, or block stamp , or some other method? Sounds like you are painting by hand, wow!
