Hey!

I got out a load of chairs yesterday, so the "shipped" list has been updated on page 1. The remaining stools will be shipped on October 29th. ;)

1. No additional shipping charges to Canada.

2. No more news from Taito yet. They are shockingly inefficient at replying to emails. The only other thing I've learned since I last updated is that they have been trying to sell me the push medal game stools which are faaar too tall (62 to 68cm) and I'm needing the Viewlix stools (48cm). Apparently the Viewlix stools are not made-to-order like the stools I have been ordering, and they only have a fixed amount at a warehouse somewhere outside of Tokyo (rusting?). Anyhow, the next email I receive should let me know how many they have, what condition they're in, as well as pricing. Our last communication was Friday, so I wont be expecting a reply until Wednesday. :lol:

Oh, and some OTHER good news - I've finally bought enough from them that they see me as a "business" account. I guess that's what 100+ stools ordered will do for you. So, I now have a login / password to the Taitotech website so I can see all the goodies on offer exclusively to arcades. Hopefully I can find some treasures and have those up for offer soon.

The benches I'm trying to get together for this next order look like this:

Well hot damn. I was wondering what other stuff they might be willing to sell other than chairs. Ashtrays? Yen stickers? Artwork? Replacement parts? T-shirts? Baseball caps? Pennants?! :D :P One can only dream.

Those chairs look efficient, but also really uncomfortable? Looks like they don't have much padding to them. I've never seen one in the wild.

My chairs are in the mail and I am tinkering with my vewlix in the meantime. Thanks a bunch amigo!

The one with the backrest is called "TT Couple Stool" IIRC. Maybe they don't do them anymore.

Fall orders have all been shipped! ;)

I'll open up Winter orders in about a week. Hopefully there's still a bit of demand out there.

In case some are wondering what kind of wait to expect, this is by far the longest I've seen so far:

Update from Taito today. They have 20 benches. They're already made and ready to ship, so there will be no 30 day wait time.
They will not make anymore, so once these 20 are gone there will be no more.

The benches are going out of production, not the stools. All stools are still in production, so you're safe. ;)

Is there a 43cm bench option or just 48cm?

No worries, I'll be in for 3x 43cm stools when you reopen orders. Thanks for doing these buys!

Just an update: I paid for 2 benches yesterday, and am waiting for them to arrive so I can get weights and measurements. As soon as I can get a figure on the method and cost of shipping I'll open up orders again. Thanks for the patience! ;)

I’ll will definitely be interested in one of those 48cm benches if/when you do a group buy. I’ve been wanting to get a bench for a while now. I’ve seem some with adjustable heights and back rests. Are those available of their site somewhere?

What’s the difference between the two models? The YBW-S looks shorter?
