Title: New real flat Nintendo T-molding FINISHED and waiting for shipping !
Post by: Level42 on April 19, 2010, 11:45:40 PM
The problems with the "Nintendo" "flat" T-molding being available so far is that it was not flat at all, the wrong material not shiny like the original and so overall not very much like the real stuff.

[EDIT: Please note this from Audiomidiman's webpage: 4) Satin finish (not semi-gloss because they cannot do semi-gloss in flexible PVC)]

Audiomidiman from KLOV forum is going to take on pre-orders for people who are interested in a TRUE repro of this T-molding.
So all you Nintendo cab owners, chime in to get this project done !!!

OK, nobody ?

The pre-order page is now open !!!!

http://www.chompingquarters.com/2010/04/true-flat-nintendo-t-molding-reproduction-pre-order-now

If we do a "group" buy we might be able to save on shipping, I already discussed this with Bill (Audiomidiman).

Here's a good comparison between the current available "Nintendo" white T-molding and the _real_ original Nintendo T-molding:

Yes, count me in for 20 feet of this stuff.

Post by: Level42 on April 23, 2010, 01:55:35 PM
OK so the order is at 40 feet right now, anyone else ?

I won't wait too long because the pre-order period is pretty short. I do think this stuff will be available after the pre-orders have been done, but I'm not sure....didn't read every post in the threads there....

Also note: the pre-order page says it _may_ be your only chance to get it.

Also, for pre-orderers the 30 dollars per 20 feet includes shipping within the US. I assume that we will have to pay any extra for shipping abroad, but it could save a couple of Euro's (esp. when we do the group order).

I'm actually thinking about getting another 20 foot. You never know what you might bump into......oops NO MORE CABS ;)

Oh, by the way, I have a set of T-molding of that other repro Nintendo T-molding here for sale :D Never installed completely new.

OK so that's 80 - 20 (Ninty's do not get NintENDO t-molding) = 60 feet.

Seriously great to see we get to 80 feet already ! :D

Don't think so. Why would it be ?

Here: http://www.chompingquarters.com/2010/04/true-flat-nintendo-t-molding-reproduction-pre-order-now

it says approx. 15 mm. wide. I assume that's the right size ?

20" ? That's going to be one tiny Nintendo cabinet. That _must_ be the reason you keep mentioning it Ninty  ;D ;D ;D ;D

But OK, 20 feet added, so we're at 120 feet now !!!

no, because 20'' = 20 INCH = 50 cm! might be good for one of those balsa models  ;)

Post by: Level42 on April 30, 2010, 12:32:23 PM
Some kind of carpenter you are !  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Just kidding my friend. The mistake lies in this:

" = inch
' = feet

So you meant 20' instead of 20" :D

and

1 foot = 12 inch.

Stupid imperial system.       ;D ;)  Only 1 country in the world still use it....

I just checked the width of the T-molding on my Japanese built cab and it's exactly 15 mm. so that's fine.

The order is final at 120 feet.

Not bad at all after a slow start. Gonna be a pretty hefty package though ;)

I'll let you guys know the definite price as soon as I get it from Bill. He will have to look into the shipping price and manufacturers final price.

Well luckily the structure of the Nintendo T-molding is so that it is very little mass compared to the regular stuff.

Incidentally I noticed yesterday that my (bootleg) Puckman has a similar flat structure T-molding, but then in black. Bet I'm not going to find that stuff though....Hope a US sized T-molding will fit....

Bill just e-mailed me with an update and some extra info:

Took some more photos of the sample material and updated the pre-order
page. Some decent photos. Now, I saw your thread at your dragon lair
forum and this is not as shinny as the original (more satin). Just
wanted to make sure you guys know this before we ship this overseas.

20' = less than 1lb... So, 5-6 lbs... So, 120 feet isn't that heavy.


So, do not expect the "shine" to be a 100% match. As Bill writes on his site:
4) Satin finish (not semi-gloss because they cannot do semi-gloss in flexible PVC)

Anyway, I'm sure it will still look 10 times better than the "bulby" alternative.

Bill also made some more pics:

Look at Bill's page for some good tips on installation !!!!!!

I strongly recommend not installing the super flat more flexible T-molding with that!!! haa haa. Won't dent. But you might find it following a profile you would find undesirable.

Payment by PayPal only please, this will enable me to get the money quickly to Chris.

More info will follow !

Yes, it must be sure that I get the exact amount needed from each person in my PP account, without any costs bein deducted on my side. So, everyone should select the gift option AND wish me a happy birthday in the comments ! :D

Normally I'd also accept bank transfers, but for so many orders/people involved, I want to keep this a bit manageable.


Title: Re: New real flat Nintendo T-molding _definitely_ to be reproduced !
Post by: Level42 on June 15, 2010, 11:38:37 AM
OK guys, I just put up a list of all the orders I got:

Level 42      20'   PAID
CKONG        20'
Muerto        40'
Robinholland 20'
Brry71         20'
Darthnuno    20'
falcon NL     20'

TOTAL       160'

Please contact me if I forgot anyone or if anything is incorrect.

Since there are so many Dutch people, I will accept bank transfers too. I think Darthnuno can also do an int. transfer for free using BIC and IBAN but don't think that will work for Muerto.....

Please, no cash etc. even for the local guys, I simply want to have the total amount BEFORE I transfer the total to Bill.

Thanks for your co-operation.....now we wait for Bill with a total from him....

Post by: Level42 on June 16, 2010, 09:00:29 AM
Uh, I probably missed your Gyruss....sorry.

I _think_ it will be OK, I just dropped Bill an e-mail.

So the FINAL list would be as follows:

Level 42      20'   PAID
CKONG        20'
Muerto        40'
Robinholland 20'
Brry71         20'
Darthnuno    20'
falcon NL     20'
Gyruss        20'
Superully     20'

TOTAL       200'

I think I will have a definite price today and I'll let you guys know.

For speed, it would be ideal if you guys could still use PayPal because I will have the amount immediately in the PayPal account so I can pay Bill ASAP so we can have the T-molding here ASAP too.

For shipping I chose Priority International Shipping from USPS, so that's 1 class over First Rate Int. shipping (which is what I normally use). This way we have it quicker AND it's even more reliable. The total in costs difference is very low per person so that's why I went with that option.

Title: Re: New real flat Nintendo T-molding _definitely_ to be reproduced !
Post by: Level42 on June 16, 2010, 10:30:15 PM
OK, Gyruss and Superully are in ! A whopping 200' will be crossing the big pond. That is almost 61 meters !

Now for shipping we chose Priority International. In my opinion this is safe enough. I have had countless packages send from the US to me with lower rated service (First class international) and ALL showed up without problems.

Also because of value indication, we are kind of excluding insurance. So for evrybody there is a (small) risk in this, but I think we all agree. If not let me know.





Title: Re: New real flat Nintendo T-molding _definitely_ to be reproduced !
Post by: Level42 on June 16, 2010, 10:48:06 PM
I forgot.....

The grand total is as follows:

10 x $25 = $250 + $45.75 shipping = $295.75

So, note that because of the large order we rounded up, we managed to get the shipping included in the price of the 20' which is great IMHO !

Now, the official currency euro/dollar rate is 1.22 at this moment, however as we all know PP and banks use a much worse rate AND the rate is pretty volatile lately.
May I suggest, because of this, to use a rate of 1.10 ?

This would mean €26.89 PER 20 FEET. For most of us that means I'd like to see that amount transferred on my PP account. For Muerto that will be €53.78

I will PM all of you with my PayPal info now.

Thanks, Andre

Post by: Level42 on June 21, 2010, 07:40:57 AM
Ronald Reagan's payment is taken care off.

Muerto, I just e-mailed Bill to ask if it was still possible to add another extra 20'.

Guys, please note that this is (if possible !) the last addition, I want to round up the order ! :D

This went pretty weird, first no-one was interested and in the end we made a big sprint.....I wonder if some Nintendo-cab import has to do with it ;)

Anyway, I'm glad that we got in a very decent order for the stuff !

andré, is it possible to add another 40000 feet? sorry, just kidding  ;) ;) ;)

anyway, great that we got this together, thx a lot for your efforts, andré! if everything goes well, you can bring the stuff along for your wrong-way-round roadtrip and we can have a roll in-party with some girls ;D

Urgent call for Muerto to pay the 3rd set of 20' please....thank you.


Ully for you it is €53780 Euro extra for the 40000 feet. It might be that Bill will need to back order some of that though ;)  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Hello Everyone. I need to move the 12 pieces of molding into a slightly larger box, get an updated weight, do customs paperwork and head to the post office.

Thanks for all the orders and thanks to Andre' for dealing with everything on your side of the pond!

My T-molding arrived here in Australia a couple of days ago - it is totally awesome..  very flat and exactly the same as the original profile pictures that have been floating around..

The fact that I am the only person in Australia to order the flat t-molding must means that I must be also the only nut case here that scratch building one as well :)

Well, I have a lovely friend who is half Spanish/half Dutch, and I'd love to see the Spanish team go on for her, but on the other hand.......
Holland-Germany. A replay of the 1974 match.....but this time......this time.............

I don't know WHAT it is, but there's something about these guys, this TEAM, the SPIRIT, their GOAL, there is just ONE GOAL........ I love to see that in their eyes......what a TEAM !
