    I was offered this AFS arcade game and was wondering what one was worth. I saw one for over 5000.00 and I believe I can pick this one up for less than 1000.00.

    Are you talking about the shock machine or the pinball machine?

    #3 9 years ago

    He's talking about the shock machine .. not the pinball machine.

    Here are some links:


    I don't know if I'd want something like this as I just don't find the concept appealing. Not to mention if something went wrong you might really get hurt or hurt someone. I'm sure there are some safeties built in though.

    #4 9 years ago

    Definitely dont see the appeal for those either but for the price and the chance to make a buck or two? Go for it. Ive got a bud that likes those things. I loosely call him a bud because hes a real idiot. Him and another guy grabbed a receptacle wire (110V) on a jobsite once just to see who could hold on the longest........Idiot.

    Yea .....I would not want it to keep. I saw it on you-tube and it seems like if put in right location, it would get a lot of play. I told the guy.....actually, he is working on my STNG, that I would think about it. He wanted me to make him an offer, so I just wanted to get an idea of their value. Thanks

    I used one of those about 10 years ago out of curiosity. The amperage has to be real low. You can feel a current going thru you but that is about it. Nothing like accidentally touching an electric fence or wall socket. I only needed to do it once to "Max it out" So I don't see this making much money.

    I'm pretty sure there is no electric current. They work by vibrating the handles at an annoying rate where it starts to hurt your hands. If you've ever used a power tool like a hand held grinder, it's the same sensation.

    I heard the same thing, but I will find out for sure when I pick up my pin.

    "I'm pretty sure there is no electric current. They work by vibrating the handles at an annoying rate where it starts to hurt your hands ..."

    Looks like you are correct:


    Based on my very limited research, it seems like the machine is actually quite rare.
