    Now itís marked down to a much more reasonable price; $400 obo

    It probably would have sold already if they offered shipping; but canít really blame them for being hesitant to ship such a heavy yet fragile item.

    I know nothing about arrangeball machines. Is it an unusual enough machine to make a 1000 mile each way road trip to obtain?

    I'm no expert, I just know they're pretty hard to come by. I've only got one of them myself and I drove about 5-6 hours roundtrip to get it, but didn't pay anywhere near that much for it, then again, the seller couldn't say if it worked or not (got lucky, it worked!).

    They are very hard to come by; it might take years for one to pop up locally depending on what part of the country you are in. 1000 miles one way is a bit too far for me; 200 miles is about my maximum radius for pachinko road trips unless itís Compirateís house Iím going to.

    Probably better off to message the seller and use your negotiation skills or bribe them into letting FedEx pack it for them and ship?? I had luck with this method for an arrangeball outside my 200 mile radius once; from the DC area, too far for me.

    I've done something similar for a couple pachinkos.

    This is the same one who posted on Reddit a couple days ago...seller was quoted a $200 value for it (which I think is perhaps a bit low if it really is fully working, rust or not). If the seller was somewhere within a 4- to 5-hour drive, I'd probably drive for it.
    Video game store owner, Twitch streamer (watashiwannabe), photographer/videographer, and many other things, trying to prove to myself that even though I have a lot of days behind me, at nearly 40, it's not too late to try to be the best version of myself.

    i spoke with the seller just to let him know what he had. if anyone is interested in it then i'd definitely ask him if all the functions work properly. i told him to go through and check all that stuff but i don't see that mentioned in the listing. also told him the 600 balls weren't needed.

    Now that it sold, instead of local pickup only listed, there is a quote of $197 to ship to Florida via USPS
