LF : Pinball or MAME Cab for Youth Center (Ottawa/Stitsville)

Post by Steph »

I have a colleague at work who's father volunteers at a community Youth center.

They are looking to add a pinball machine or possibly some arcade cabinets. (MAME Cabs)

[Edit] I was told that a MAME cab would be the first priority , with possibly getting a pin sometimes later.
So anyone with a MAME cab for sale, let me know.
It does not have to be fancy, as long as it works OK.
(LCD screen is fine ; no need to be a CRT purist )

--

As for getting a pin ,
I assume the deciding factor will be cost, and not collectability / desirability .
(... so a Gottlieb would be fine ! ;-)
Any decent , playable pin would be fine.
I don't know what the budget is, but I'm thinking $1000-$1500.
A solid state pin would likely be preferred over an older mechanical pin.

Also, assume NO tech knowledge to make any repairs, so a "bullet-proofed" pin would be much welcome.

PM me if anyone has any candidates for sale, and I can put you in touch with the Youth volunteer.

Merci,
Stephan

Might be better to get a 60 in 1 or other xxx in 1 jamma cab set up as MAME may require work should there be any technical issues w/ the computer or software. Also they are plentiful.

Good Point.

Any Jamma XXX in 1 would also be fine.

Anyone ?

I have a really nice Gottlieb Pinball Pool SS machine. But it’s $2500 so might be out of their budget but figured I would mention it.

I live in Stittsville as well.

Thanks for the offer.

But I think the price might be a tad high for them, and the search right now if more for an arcade cabinet.

Even an empty cab would work.
