Browsing Craig's List...

Came across this 'lectromech cabinet in Damascas Md. Figured this was the place to post a heads up.

Nice original machine, at a fair price. Isn't it amazing how an individual can post such
clear quality photos, showing every detail, including the instruction booklet, and the
people that are into the hobby, will post some of the crappiest, and fuzzy pics on eBay?

Yes, usually when there are only one or two crappy pics, is a clue that there are
issues that they do not want seen. Mainly pics of the mechanism.

these Keeney's come up often on e-bay , usually never sell.
actually crappy photos on C.L. or OFFERUP, seem to help me, no one else seems to know what it is but usually I do, & I snag it.
#1 comment from sellers, sorry no photos of the inside , have no idea how to open it up & pull that out...... I'm afraid I'll break some thing ". passed on a lot of machines via e-ban just because of this. usually it's A flipper who has no clue about anything. "I got it for nothing , will sell it for a million..." And they usually do more damage to it ( drill out locks, break the bonnet off, ect.).

The more I look at this game the more interested I get.
Tried calling yesterday during bis hrs, got the answering machine.
They haven't called me back.
Having heard you guys opinions, I'm tempted to offer five bills for it.
Wonder what that puppy weighs ?

OK, so I just talked to the guy, and they listed it on EBay buy it now for $540.
He says it weighs about 125. I'd be surprised if it was that light.
I'm going to sit on my hands. The electric aspect adds a whole nuther level of complexity that
frankly scares me. Plus it's three hours away, and I'm on full time taking care of my elderly parents

I own one like it , single 5 cent play. weighs more than 125 pounds , 150/ 160 maybe. mine was repainted years ago but, the original paint was under it. mine sat unplayed for roughly 10 years in storage, along with 2 other console type machines. I bought all 3.
I'm not an expert on anything electrical, but these have real simple stuff in them. these (along with others) were out long before Bally's slot machine in 1964. the Bally high hand (by them) is from 1941 !!!
they just got lucky with the right timing to "take over the world" in 1964. they did have to "perfect" some of the works to prove it was reliable ,worth buying.
mine took a bit to get running = old dried up grease, ect. some "steppers" were frozen in one position.
just cleaned it up well good , oil a few spots, ect. = runs like a champ.
if you really want it, think first ...." where do I want to play it ?" these aren't small ,do take up some space.
And do make some noise when the reels are turning. I did get a 60 coin pay out once ,shortly after getting it running; it's way of thanking me.

Great story Jeff. Sixty nickles -three whole dollars !
There's a spot just across the room from me thats begging for that machine.
The old folks would probably have a conniption.

I've made arrangements to go down Saturday to get it.
Unless someone beats me to it, which I told her was ok.
I made that clear. I don't really need it. Impulse buy.
May help with depression....
