    I make the ones that go on the four corners. I don’t know if I’m the fanciest, but I’m the one that came up with the idea that others copied.

    Where can I buy these?

    I got 4 from Taylor myself. Work well. It wont hold much larger then a can, so if you like to drink from a cup, like a yeti, it may not be wide enough. Not a knock against it just letting you know.

    do you make them in different colors. I saw a cabinet on here where someone had a red one on one side and a blue on the other like for USA vs Russia or USA vs canada and it was just the prettiest thing ever. oh just found a pic of kind of what I was looking for.

    Yeah, they work for cans and bottles, but not large things. If I made them bigger, the bottles and cans might tip over when shaking the game.

    I do make them in red and blue but not with the logo's because I don't own the trademark rights to them.

    totally makes sense, do you make them in that blue and that red...something about those colors that looks so gosh dang good. ok so no team logos, or the olympics logo im guessing...what about the team names?
    and yes I second Pinpickle and ask where can we buy them and how much good sir?

    Turned on my super chexx and it played part of its little song and then just made a loud hum sound and just kept making that hum sound. The scoreboard only had one side lit up. Unplugged the scoreboard and it played its full song. Any ideas?

    Quoted from Sirgubster9:

    hi looking for the guys who do the cup holders... the super sweet looking ones. trying to find it in this forum but its a lot of pages... any help from the peeps who have done em?

    For those that have replaced their dome, how did you go about getting it? Ice sells the dome I need for $385, but I was quoted $425 shipping. Over $800 for a dome is not something I would even consider. I was looking around and saw that a local distributor (Betson) has it listed for $510 (or so). I was just looking to see if there was a more economical option.

    Thanks,

    I contacted betson and they said that they basically have it shipped from Ice so you would still be paying the 425 shipping plus 510 for the dome, so it would even cost you more ha ha. Ya I am looking for the exact same thing you are. if you can find something more reasonable please let me know because I will be right there with you.

    #2816 4 months ago

    Chexxmods.com makes an alternative to the dome that might work for you. It’s modeled after the traditional hockey “boards”. You can find some videos of it on YouTube. They also make a bunch of cool mods that you might be interested in as well.

    chexxmods stuff is sooooooo cool!!!!! but i feel like there alternative is basically the same price ha ha and even though i do think it looks super awesome i feel like the whole point of bubble hockey is to actually have a bubble. but ya big fan of all there stuff and wish i could afford it. This might have been more of a response to dinot, but i figured id chime in.

    #2818 4 months ago

    Even tougher trying to find a dome in Australia!
    I'm currently trying to wet sand the major scratches out of my dome but not sure how well it'll turn out.
    If i could get a new one at reasonable cost ($500 inc shipping) I'd do it in a heartbeat

    Uggghhh....I assumed that the $508 was to Betson's location. (only 30 mins from my house). It is insane to me that a 20lb part costs more to ship than a pinball machine. I wonder if we use another freight company shipped to an airport. (usually much cheaper than delivered to your door). I had some slot machines shipped this way a few years back. I think I paid $150.

    My dome isn't atrocious. I took out some of the haze by flame polishing it. But I wouldn't mind a new one.

    if i could do one for 500 bucks including shipping which is what it used to cost a year or so ago i would be on it as well allsport.

    i am trying to wetsand mine but i dont have high hopes and i am wayyyyy too scared to bust out a blow torch.

    but ya I thought betson was 508 to there location as well which im 30 min away too....i started contacting them because a couple months back they actually had two domes available on there website... one for 508 and another for 300 and something so i got super excited and tried to purchase the 300 one and then i was told that one didnt exist and all the other sad info about shipping and what not.

    I asked chexx if they would be willing to ship there items in different methods and they pretty much shut me down but i have been told by others on here or a facebook group that if you call and talk to the right people they are more willing to discuss different ideas and plans with you.

    How does the dome get scratched ? Is it from the puck hitting the dome,or just careless players?

    #2825 4 months ago
    Quoted from ralphs007:

    It shouldn't in a home use environment. Some people have purchased these 2nd hand from bars, etc. These will show dome issues. Unless you're spilling something on it or the family is abusing it in some way, they should be scratch free. Mine is close to 15 years and still looks perfect. I clean it once a month with Plexus.

    Mine was off route.

    #2827 4 months ago

    Even HUO domes will get scratched at some point. It just doesn’t take much for scratches to show up.

    #2828 4 months ago
    Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

    Even HUO domes will get scratched at some point. It just doesn’t take much for scratches to show up.

    I'd agree with that. Though mine was on route prior to me purchasing it, a lot of the scratches are on the inside.

    I got a new shipping quote. LTL freight. $245. Still high IMO. But closer than the last quote.

    My magic number was $500. With this new shipping quote I am at $385 + $245 = $630. (for a piece of plastic )

    I wonder if Fast Eddie would pick it up if he was ever in the area? Don't know him or ever used him but people swear by him.

    is the bubble only 385 without shipping? I say only like its a small number... so expensive ha ha. and are you able to just purchase the item and pick it up at there store or factory or whatever or do you have to pay for shipping to somewhere no matter what?

    ICE allows you to pick up orders at their manufacturing facility, but that facility is in the Buffalo, NY area.

    Yes, the dome alone is $385. They are about 8 hours from me which is not an option. I'd consider 90min drive (each way) but not anything longer.

    good to know next time im in buffalo. if i could get a bubble for 385 id do it in a heart beat at this point.

    Hi all, apologies if this has been covered but I didn’t see it in my search…

    I just inherited a Miracle on Ice Super Chexx, which is in terrific condition except for a few areas of the ice surface which look a bit raised near the tracks of certain players and can sometimes catch when turning/passing/shooting. Doesn’t impact vertical movement and the conditions have to be just right for it to be an issue, but it’s annoying when it happens.

    Is there a way to fix this, maybe with double sided tape underneath the warped sections to hold them back down? If so, what kind of tape would be best so that I can still remove the ice surface later if needed? Anything else I should try? Am I just hosed and need to pony up for a new surface?

    Have you opened the dome yet? Any pics?

    #2837 4 months ago

    Also, could anyone with a Super Chexx be so kind as to share a photo of how the 4 colored wires connect to the prongs near the game’s starter button? It appears those were mistakenly unplugged in the move. There are four prongs they clearly connect into. Thanks.

    #2838 4 months ago
    Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

    Have you opened the dome yet? Any pics?

    I have not yet, no. The support harness was missing and reading this thread it sounds like you want to have one when opening so you don’t bend the wrong thing. I’ve ordered one that comes in later this week. Don’t have in front of me but will try to get a few pictures later today or tomorrow. You can see a few tracks where one side is a bit lifted if you know what to look for but it’s not super obvious otherwise.

    #2839 4 months ago
    Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

    Have you opened the dome yet? Any pics?

    See the pictures below. The slight raised areas are one side of the USA right defenseman and the USA center forward. The rise by the forward doesn’t really affect his play much at all, it’s really more the fight defenseman that can get caught up in it. I’d love to fix both if possible.

    Yes it really adds to it. You can change the colors in the menu. I also got the cup holders for it but I’ll put them on once it’s moved downstairs.

    I actually did buy drink holders directly from Ice. I just haven’t installed them yet. I’ll put them on once the game is set up in the basement.

    #2850 3 months ago

    Hi everyone,
    Forgive me for asking due to it's probably been asked before and answered. Has anyone added their own LED lighting outside? If so, which lights did you use.
    Much thanks
