    Default How hard will this be??

    So these four machines went up for sale around my area. Iíd like to buy a newer 90ís machine, but Iím wondering how hard these machines are to repair. None of them are in working condition is what I am told...he wants $50 for one machine. Is that fair? I donít have one this new in my collection and I donít know much about them.

    If you were to pick one, which should I pick??

    Thanks guys!

    $50 for what might turn into a door stop isn't a good deal, but if they can be fixed it's a pretty good deal. They look badly neglected.

    Not knowing what is wrong with them is a deal breaker for me. Keep in mind it would be pretty hard to source parts if it turns out the brain box is fried. If it turns out that they only need a fuse, or something simple, there's that.

    If you have good electronics troubleshooting skills and $50 to burn then go for it. I would have to pass.

    #4 is my favorite theme of the four.

    I dunno. $50 each isn't too huge to me, even non-working as I've known people that just use the playfield as wall art. The playfields on those look to be in good shape with good color. A bit hard to tell for sure with reflection and some dirt, but they seem decent enough. I've been offered $75 for the playfield of Pumpkin King, from someone that likes halloween stuff; no frame, clipped wires behind it. I kept it because I figured I might do the same thing, just wire up some LEDs and use it as decoration.

    I can understand others look at them and judge worth by playability which is fine. I think that's part of what makes the price range of them so spread out, they are worth different amounts to different people.

    Is a horde an old timey measurement like a score or bushel?

    As there are 2 Sanyos and 2 of the nishijin. I'd off 75 for the 2 of the same make. I notice the first one is missing a light lenses.

    A hoard is a collection of valuable objects or artifacts, sometimes purposely buried in the ground.
    Max may agree that some maqy have actually been buried in the ground.
