Here's what's going on with us! The ToTAN playfields
had to be split into two runs because we just aren't equipped to
print that many PFs at one time. We have material in stock
though for the whole run so we'll begin cutting the second batch
as right after TAF or Fishtales. The first batch
finished screening a few minutes ago and Kevin is very happy with
the quality and alignment. He went to some crazy lengths to
ensure the printing surface was as close to glass as we could
get, which makes a superior image during silk screening.
Next up will be Gottlieb Joker Poker
PFs which guys have been pretty excited about. Then we have a small
run of Corvette Playfields over getting ready to print. Stu did a
great job of making the artwork true to the original and yet
better :-) Jim Heck did a spectacular job with Medusa and we are
about half done cutting Medusa! So look for those Playfields
soon. I am doing CAD work on Fishtales right now whiich would be
printed after JP and Medusa, unless the supplies for The
Addams Family arrive first. If the material show up in time,
we'll just cut TAF ahead of Fishtales.

Just a quick update; We have 92
ToTAN Pfs cut so far and when we hit about 100 we'll effectively
run out of room to move in the shop so we'll switch over to
sanding and filling so that we can move these outta my shop and
over to Kevin's. Then it's right back to cutting. Kevin will
seal and further sand, dimple the backs and generally get them
ready to print. Once he has about 150 which is about his max due
to drying rack space he'll start printing and we'll get to see
how all this hard work is shaping up.
We'll be testing out our
new sander. It's a Woodmaster 5075-X2 50 inch double drum sander
bad boy. This will allow us to finally look at the wide body PFs
and hopefully work much more efficiently than our old General
International 25 inch sander which wasn't really wide enouigh to
effectively even do narrow bodies. It worked but was
horrendously hard on the sanding paper.
Take a look at ToTAN being cut below!
