    Default A funny thing happened on the way home this weekend

    I had just got do doing a beach run out at Long Beach Washington and was heading home. I sis not want to take the main drag out of town for the 5 hour drive home. I hopped over a block and started out of town, when on a Sunday in february i see a yard sale. As I go by out of the corner of my eye I see something I haven't seen since I was a little kid 8 or 9, what looks like a pair of old Pachinko machines sitting at the front of this yard sale. Not sure I saw what I seen i go a block up and come back to check. I get back to the yard sale and yes to vintage machines are for sale. $10 for a 1974 Sanyo ans $15 for a 1975 Nishijin M-11 (Flower Spray) in better condition. So the lady came out and I gave $25 for both and loaded them up carefully in the jeep for the ride home. I am going to clean them up and get them working again. I do have one technical up front what kind of power supply do you use for these.

    Welcome to PachiTalk. $25 for the pair is a good deal. You can find balls on eBay. Usually about $30 for 500 balls. Make sure the balls you are buying are as new as possible. Rusty balls are not your friend.

    Nice find! From a cursory look, it seems like both machines were cared for.

    Looks nice, like that spot was waiting for a pachinko to be hung there!
