I no longer have stock of the Pinscape Lite and Pinscape AIO and many of my other products are selling out quickly. Please see here for a statement on this.

 

I have created this topic to centralize all my stuff in one place and it will get updated on a regular basis. I got into this amazing hobby in October 2018, I realized quickly that I had my own way to contribute back to the community by creating electronic circuit boards and integrated products that people can use in their own cabs. Feel free to append comments about my products below.

 

The best way to contact me is via email at  o a k m i c r o s at austin dot rr dot com rather than using messaging on this forum.

 

Oak Micros Current Products

You can append these product specific topics with questions or send them to me offline at the email address listed above.

 

Oak Micros Products with no stock

 

I do not plan to make these products in the near future.

Oak Micros Discontinued Products

Ordering

To order any my products, contact me via email at  o a k m i c r o s at austin dot rr dot com with what you want to order. I will tell you the shipping cost and give you payment instructions for Paypal.

 

Shipping Policy

I usually ship the next business day for items in stock (see Covid-19 statement above) using first class mail (airmail for international addresses). I can combine items to reduce overall shipping costs. Contact me using the email address above for final shipping costs. Note with cut in funding and covid there can be delays with USPS and package may take twice as long to arrive.

 

Payment Policy

I only take Paypal. I prefer to use the non-insurance option (gift for a friend) as it keeps down the prices. If you want PayPal insurance then I will need to add a 3% premium to your total (5% for International customers). Note I have had all my customers (>160) do it this way and no-one has had a problem. My reputation on this board and around the hobby is paramount.

 

Returns Policy

All sales are deemed final. If there is a problem with the item I have sent you then I will gladly replace it free of charge providing that the defective item is returned to me. If you accidentally force out the magic smoke then I will work with you on a partial or complete replacement.

 

Disclaimers

Oak Micros products are NOT intended for use in applications such as implantation, life support, or other hazardous uses where malfunction could result in death, bodily injury, or catastrophic property damage. Oak Micros does not warrant merchantability for any purpose and shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, or consequential damages of any kind, however incurred, through the use of Oak Micros products.

I have sold a number of electronic boards for virtual pinball cabs such as Pinscape All-in-One, Pinscape Lite, Plunger Kit, Rotary Encoder, Fuse board, Resistor board, Pinball Addressable LEDs (PAL) board, and RGB Flipper/Magnasave board with clear buttons. I am currently taking a break but will continue to support existing customers. See my home page for more details.

I wanted to comment on the Pinscape All in one (AIO) board.  As a non electrical engineer, nor a hobbyist electrical guy, I was a bit under water with what direction to go with button connections as I bought 11 RGB LED arcade buttons for the pinball cab I am building....cause...why not.... What I didn't know is that RGB LEDs alone need 4 different wire connections.  Of course one of them being power, but then one for red, one for blue, then one for green.  I say all this due to needing 44 wire connections (thats not including the other 2 connections per arcade button to power those up).  AFTER I bought these super cool arcade buttons, I was stuck with what board I needed.  I heard most go with the LEDWiz as its been around for a long time and "it works" as every youtube video I watched so needlessly added.  My issue was the shortage of wire connections that I needed.  A random internet search popped up with the Pinscape AIO.  Ive heard and read about pinscape and was very interested, but again, shortage of wire connections.  I read about the pinscape AIO board and jumped on board. I have to say, its really really easy to figure out, and has more inputs then I know what to do with. 

 

Mike has been on top of communication when I pre-ordered out of the second batch of boards he had.  He sent me an email stating he received my paypal payment and re-stated when he was planning on getting the boards in.  Once the boards came in, he tested everything, flashed the board (installed pinscape), and sent me another email with tracking number saying the board has been shipped and on its way.  I don't see this kind of customer service from major retailers let alone some hobbyist who wants to improve upon whats already out there.

No not yet. I should have more news by the weekend. I am finally getting the PCBs for the RGB Flippers today (it took them almost 3 weeks to make them over the Christmas/New Year holiday).

Before you sell out of those, put me in for two pair of the RGB flippers.

Today (July 20), looking at the stocked/sold items for the 1-3/8" clear buttons. 113 sold, 11 stock, just wondering... who ordered an odd number of buttons? :P

Someone wanted a clear "fire" button for their lockdown bar. I have more buttons on order now and an odd number, I might add, to get me back to a multiple of 4.

Hello, I want to add force feedback on my virtual pinball (as in a shaker). What is the best shaker I can get and what boards do I need? I believe I need DOF.

It's an RS 545, it will probably shake anything
And power your PC car too LOL


It counts as a cabinet, right?

Yeah, this puppy is pretty powerful, but after I saw the huge motor they put into the "Attack From Mars" cabinet, it takes a distant 2nd.
