    That is actually a text book marketing trick. It can give the perception of more value, OBVIOUSLY not when your too over priced to start with though.

    Really beautiful woodwork.
    But I think pachinko is a plague on this earth.

    #7567 32 days ago

    Eh, it just isn't for me but if someone else enjoys pachinko, then who am I to piss on their fun? It isn't like they are those dummies into bingo machines.... screw those guys with a rusty Harbor Freight 5/16 wrench. Amiright gang? ;P

    Some nice work there Yak.

    #7568 31 days ago

    Here's what does it for me. All of the interlocks in this purely mechanical device. It's quite the system of checks going on behind the pile of pins. I'm a sucker for that kind of thing.

    the museum of flipping

    I mean if it's a museum then I'm sure you've got the proper non-profit paperwork ready to show me and I can make any donation as tax deductible and hey where are you going

    If they ask to borrow an Escalara, DONT DO IT.

    #7574 30 days ago

    Do museums pay less for their machines? Starting to sound like a good idea. We currently need donations of a Paragon, a Centaur, TOTAN and the other machines on my wishlist. Only working like new machines will be accepted, because we have such high standards.

    Tell him the negotiation will only take a couple seconds, just move his decimal place one little ol' position to the left.

    heh, I suspect that his first language is French and meant "here's your chance."

    Quoted from ThatOneDude:

    Yeah I'm not a huge fan of calling out/making fun of non-native US folks for broken English. One damn complicated and ass-backwards language to learn and their English is definitely better than my French/Italian/German.

    Making fun of US citizens who can't spell, well, I mean, still not nice but....

    “The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.” - James Nicoll

    Quoted from JethroP:

    Can we post ads from Pinside in this forum too?

    I wasn't poking fun of anyone's language....I posted that because I got a laugh out of the price $150 for an old ragged schematic....that's all.

    So, was the EM version super rare? Maybe that's why it's pricey.

    #7589 23 days ago

    I was making fun of the wording. I didn't know it was his 2nd language.

    Quoted from SarverSystems:

    Just to be clear, I'm not trying to bust anyone's chops for this. I work for an international corporation, so I get to see lots of weird English phrasing. I kind of auto translate it in my head now.
    The phrase was funny and the price is inexplicably high. It's all good.

    #7592 18 days ago

    Where the Kansas City pinheads who know the story behind this Lady Robin? Somebody has been posting it on CL for over a year non-stop with prices from $750-1500 (maybe more I can't remember). Seems really odd to me. Definitely pricey for a woodrail.

    If LE stands for "Lacking Electricity", then I guess it is.

    Alright folks. Here is the worst attempt at a scam I have seen.

    #7600 14 days ago

    This guy tried to scam me a couple days ago. He responded to my want ad for a HH. Called him and he asked for $500 deposit to be wired to him via Zelle, Venmo or Google Pay (aka anything without buyer protection). When I said I wouldn't pay him until I saw the machine he asked for $250 then $100 then sent me this pic of a virtual pin to try and sweeten the deal. Oh also at the beginning of the call he told me he was in Ohio, then later when I asked him where he was he said Florida. Then by the end of the call he was back in Ohio...
