    Default Impossible to find?

    Is it me, or is it impossible to find arrangeball machines on the east coast. How are they best located? Where have you all found them before?

    4 on YJA last week. That's one of the places to find them. But condition and prices range from junk to immaculate collectors items. Then of course. You have to ship it from Japan

    Not many were made to begin with and production ultimately stopped altogether. As clam said, YJA is the best source but they’re still pretty rare, are expensive to import, and their actual condition is hard to ascertain. That being said, I’ve gotten my best arrangeballs from YJA and frequently the ones that do come up we’re never imported here.

    I agree, Yahoo Japan is usually your best bet, but be prepared to invest $500-600 to buy and import. I think I have only bought one from a seller in the US. You may post in the wanted forum and see if there are any members here that may be willing to part with a machine.

    Shipping from Okinawa to the fromjapan site. Domestic shipping will be a back breaker. Nearly as much as international?
