    Quoted from GLSP3022:

    Another "buy this or I'll destroy it" ad

    I live semi-near Keith, and I have worked for him in the past.

    He has never destroyed a cab that I am aware of. He'll sit on it for a while if it doesn't sell.

    Should have "honored" the wife while you were there.

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    Did someone not know how to adjust the leg levelers?

    Someone in a wheelchair perhaps?

    #4954 1 year ago

    I was thinking that very same thing.

    They "destroyed" a set of legs, but really this isn't as bad as it looks.

    Looks funny as hell, but is easily reversed.

    WTF does "OG" mean?

    I've been seeing it everywhere lately.

    Why can't we just say "NOS" or "original" like normal people???

    Quoted from DropTarget:

    Te only BS I see is where he says that the parts are in fair to good condition.

    Hey, there's some good condition screws on that playfield! Gotta be $400 worth of screws there right?

    #5310 1 year ago

    It just sounds retarded no matter how its used.

    #5313 1 year ago

    Maybe he keeps the machine clean, replaces rubbers and bulbs, and goes "Oh, what a shot! You go girl!"

    I don't think I'd trade him a Simpsons for 10 playboy's.

    Maybe if a real playboy bunny came with it....

    I agree, that's pretty badass, and A LOT of work went into that.

    It looks like they wheeled that around to children's hospitals or something like that.

    Ask her if she's going to use the money to buy a better camera/phone.

    Its actually not that bad.

    Definitely got a good start on it.

    How does that dolly even work? And how is it "adjustable"?

    It look just like any other Addam's Ive seen.

    You'd have to pay me $150-$200 to take ANY bingo machine.

    Now if they weighed about 1/100th what they actually weight, might be a different story.

    Not sure what to make of this one.

    Hard to find BALLY Ro Go warrior Vintage Pinball Machine rare to find - $2700
    santabarbara.craigslist.org link

    A client of mine bought a ROGO for about $300 in mostly working condition, and he probably paid too much. What a dog of a machine.

    #5734 1 year ago

    Maybe he'll give it you in a baggy, and you can reassemble it like a puzzle?

    "Across the nation". Find me even just 1.

    Gives us Pittsburghers a bad name. Tards.

    Quoted from statictrance:

    Given the information gathered in the listing and assuming it's 100% accurate - we can determine this person isn't exactly a major pin enthusiast or very knowledgeable about the hobby. Based on that - there's no way this machine in a home use only environment was getting enough use to require major yearly maintenance... Certainly not a full multiple hour teardown requiring a $150 charge.
    Maybe it's easy for me to say since my repair business is a side venture that I genuinely enjoy doing, but being willfully dishonest with your customers to pocket a whopping $150 is a shitty way to do business. I'd rather give them the honest information, work with them to do more infrequent maintenance based on their actual needs, and build my business on positive word of mouth.

    I run mine the same way. But... there are a few others in the PGH who will tell you whatever you need to hear for them to make a buck.

    "Heavily restored"?

    "Barely restored because its so heavy"?

    #6530 40 days ago

    So which one of you guys is getting paid "hundreds of dollars an hour" to restore???

    I need to raise my rates!

    #6544 36 days ago

    Not my ad (obviously) but what is so shady about it? In fact, he has all of his punctuation, complete sentences, and correct spelling. I'd give this ad an A+.

    #6552 35 days ago
    Quoted from Matesamo:

    Sure, sounds great.[quoted image]

    I read this ad exactly 11.32 times, and I still have no clue what I am looking at or reading.

    Something about a box? 2 can play the box from 30ft away? Remotely?
