Quoted from jar155:

Edit: one more thing. There's very few project machines being sold anymore. There's too much money to be made by fixing them up yourself before selling them. A lot of the great deals disappeared along with the project listings.

I haven't been around but for two years... well maybe 2.5... but I agree here 100%. At auctions I go to, the project pins sell for maybe $200-$300 less than prices of pins out of collections on here. It's really not that big of a savings and in some cases that money is eaten up to get them working again.

I did purchase my TAF at an auction and have been quite happy with it. I also bought Black Rose at an auction. It worked okay but I didn't like it and lost $100 on the sale.
