WTB Pinbot "The sun" plastic insert**Made it**

Postby Chnillapoil » Sat Jan 31, 2015 4:34 pm

I'd like to find a replacement 2 1/2" yellow plastic insert "THE SUN" for my Pinbot. Mine is cracked.
Surface crackling is not a problem and I have a decal on hand.

I made a silicone mold from mine. I made lot of mistakes before having a perfect example.
The one you see is not that perfect you can see two bubbles in the plastic.
The last one I made is like original. The trick is vacuum and pressure, see?

My goal is to have a good bank of moulds so if you have any "rare" cracked, broken or good inserts I can use to make it in any color you want.

I'm glad you pulled this off!

As im slowly doing some house keeping I forgot I had another pinbot PF partially populated, I could have assisted with.

Great work!

I see a very real business opportunity in what you provide.

Your inserts look fantastic, and I'm sure you would have ALOT of demand
since, as far as I know, no-one else is reproducing inserts.
(...let alone being able to custom-make them ) .

It's nice to have an source of income to fuel the collector addiction .... ;-)

Really nice work.

Thanks for the kind words guys, but I don't think there is a real market for this.
When inserts are cupped or cracked, the PF is also shot.
CPR make repros and player games are player games......
I do this for fun and to help people get their game up and running.
In this case these arrows were available in the USA for 50 cents each, but that exclude 50$ for shipping.....

Bump.

Great-looking job and I might bother you in the near future to do my big blues in lightning whatever your cost is. I pulled them out and they're warped. They also feel rubbery. Might need to do some kind of pre-mold in the straightening jig and then do a final mold. If you're interested, I'll take a picture and post it later today. For now, I wanted to boost this post because it's so cool. :-)

Thanks Chris,

I use to try to make a mold from an old insert with no success sadly. If you could find another one of different color it would be the best.
