    What I could not believe is they actually passed down a cabinet bottom from a rafter to the floor with just two guys?!?

    Just how much is NOT inside a EK professional home version?

    Agreed. I was waiting for one, or both, of them to get injured. But, as we all know, Pickers is staged. I'm willing to bet the producers gutted the cab.

    No coin door, no cash box, no anti cheat corner plates by leg bolts. Playfield bottom arch is plastic. Cabinet is not as tall/deep so less wood. Boxed weight is 160# so no head & no box means main cabinet weighs maybe 125#.

    Do you honestly think either of those guys - Frank is out of shape as hell and I don't know who the other guy is but he's not exactly the epitome of youth or fitness - can lift 125lbs easily? Let alone weight shaped as awkwardly as a pin cab? Not a chance. Frank ain't deadlifting that thing even if the rafter was helping distribute the weight.

    Ha! I'm kinda glad they didn't find it; that game is probably better used as a coffee table.

    I was a kid when those were selling in Sears. I would've LOVED to have one over any of the other choices at the time.

    I was wondering that myself. May have room for a game.
