WTB:Skee Ball machine
« on: March 13, 2019, 11:10:41 am »
Hi All,

The Mrs.  Would like a full size Skee Ball Machine..   
Can you let me know the best way to find one within a few hundred miles of the Boston area? 
Used/project is fine - I can fix/restore anything...
Thanks!

Obsessively search craigslist and Facebook marketplace.  Took me probably 6 months, then came across a 10 ft model H project for $200 in Maine.  Was worth the drive (Iím in CT)

They are going for STUPID high rates, but I see a working machine going for between $200 and $500 once every couple of months.

I posted working internals for a Model S.  Sometimes you can get a cabinet for a few hundred when the CPU blows.  They'd probably work in a variety of different machines.  Take two friends, they are Heavy.
