Re: 3x Fathom

I think time plays tricks on our memory as we get older. I got into this hobby around 10 years ago, and since then I have owned 2 1/2 Fathoms. Bought the first one, fully working, for around $900. Second one wasn't much more. When I sold them, I got somewhere around $2500, and that was after doing w...

Brampton to Halifax available ~ leaving July 4 or 5

Heading out to Halifax from Brampton middle of next week. Space is available for delivery or a machine, backglass, playfield, or whatever.

Could possibly arrange for a pick up and delivery anywhere along the way. 8-)

WTB ~ Skateball Backglass and -35 MPU

Looking for a used but nice Skateball bg. Know CPR has them but don't want to spend that much...yet.

Also looking for a nice -35 MPU, meaning that it is at least semi-reliable and isn't all nasty.

Thanks.

Re: Trade Dolly Parton Playfield for 8-ball pf can bring to Church Saturday

Hey Amona.

I have an Eight Ball pf that is almost fully populated. I do not need a Dolly pf so would be looking to sell this instead. If you are still interested, then I can send you some pics so you can get a better idea of its condition.

Cheers.

WTB: Small EK plastic

Looking for the smallest of the EK plastics that lives up near the top left of the playfield. Only about 2 inches long next to the left spinner. Would actually prefer the original one since all my other plastics are original, however, if you happen to have a new one, that'll do too. Let me know if y...

After reading your response above I have this to offer. In order to avoid this exchange from getting uglier than it needs to be and for the sake of peace on this forum, we should really agree to disagree. What say you ? I thank you for your post. It is an example of how annoyingly complex we are an...

Holy crap ! Glenn, I get the vibe that very few people here on MAACA care for what you think, except maybe for Brock. And for the record, Warlock has built and runs a successful business, as I am sure you know, so it is obvious that he knows a thing or two about buying and selling, whether it be pi...

Re: Buy and Sell ethics

If the buyer didn't leave you a deposit because you didn't ask for it, and in an email you state that it's OK, then the sale is still pending, and his flipping tactic, while not very ethical, remains on the legal side. Yes a good point. But other emails can certainly take precedence over those init...

Re: Buy and Sell ethics

This is what I do. There is no deal that is done until there is AT LEAST a deposit. I make it clear the deposit is mine, regardless. I love the idea of a small deposit and whenever I have to hold onto a machine for pickup, I always take a small deposit and would not hesitate to keep it if I felt sc...

Re: Tron Project - Barn Fresh

Why back in the 80s and 90s did people set up arcades in their barns ?

Were farmers playing a few games between milkings ?

Re: Anti-Fatigue mats

Your problem is that your ball times are too long.

When you suck like I do, the games don't last long enough for you to get tired. :mrgreen:
