    Today I am one of those people. Picked up POTO today for the low low price of free ninety nine.

    Story goes that my buddy is in the trades and he's working on a guy's basement. He just wants the thing out of there. So he sends me a text asking if POTO is any good. I say it's DE and it's kinda old but yeah it has it's charms. He says he might be able to get it for me. I say cool for a few hundred I'll take it for sure. I could use a project. The next day I leave for a 2 week vacation to vietnam. I send him a text a few days in asking the story and he says it's mine. I say for how much. He says buy me a six pack.

    So a week later I finally get it set up ( at my buddy's; small apartment remember )

    When I got the left flipper wasn't working at all. A wire had come loose and I soldered it up right away. The flippers both are in dire need of a rebuild and the entire thing is real, real filthy. But it seems to be functioning somewhat decently. It'll definitely be poppin when I'm through with it.

    Does anyone have the manual for POTO?

    #10 7 years ago

    That's only part of the manual. There's a ton missing that i'd like to see.

    I'm gonna have to get the manual off Marco. I can't seem to find the flipper diagrams. It seems to me that there are no EOS switches on the flippers which confuses me. Also it sucks living in canada because every time I order off anywhere the shipping is like 100% of the parts I bought. Oh well, at least the machine was cheap
