Certabo peices

Hi all,

 

Does anyone have the 2.5" wooden pieces? If so, quick question..

Do these have felt on the underside?

 

Thanks.

Hi again Cameron

Thx for question I answer as it may useful for some others too

Yes piece have felt underside the rfid chip is smaller is 15mm and is glued inside circular milling in the base then its fully embedded by protective resin to have solid part with piece as with this dimension there is no possibility of pvc disk protection. Then felt is applied flush to the base.

Al the best

Hi Pietro

Do you sell the smaller rfid chips? I have another wooden 2.5" set  I want to convert to Certabo pieces and the normal 20mm chips dont fit on the base of the pawns.

Thank

Mark

 

Hi Mark

Normally not because the smaller chips are naked one,  and do not have the rigid and stong plastic enclosure so you cannot directly stick to the base.

You would need to mill and house them in the base making a 14-15mm diameter and 1mm deep hole then put and resin them inside or kind of similar stuff.

PM me in case

All the best

Hi all

For anyone wishing to use alternate smaller (2.5") pieces then I can confirm it is possible. It requires a bit of DIY effort to drill an approx. 15mm wide hole to a depth of 2mm in each piece.

The pieces I used were weighted and not particularly consistent with how deep the wieghts were placed. In some cases I had to drill through metal. The small rfid chips were not at all sensitive to the metal weights, even at very close distances, or the liberal use of hot glue!

Finally I hot glued felt directly to the chip which was flush with the base.

Very happy with the outcome and thanks to Pietro and his team for supplying the naked chips and directions. The chips are not particularly fragile but need to be handled with care. Once glued it is not possible to remove the chip without breaking them. I had two accidents but there were plenty of spares supplied.

Thanks again Certabo!
