    Long shot... I have really nice custom islanders / rangers and looking to trade for caps / canes if anybody happens to have a set.

    Hi everyone - proud new owner of an extremely dirty and well-used, but mechanically sound, 1983 red-base Chexx. Getting into cleaning it up right now and getting the electronics squared away.

    Especially interested to hear from anyone who's gone through one of these machines before.

    Hi all
    I bought a set of original goals for my 1983 chexx restore and they have yellowed just sitting in my room
    Are there other options available? The NHL style ones look good, do they fit the 1983 Chexx and best place to buy?

    #2905 59 days ago

    I think, you could do the un yellow that they do for console plastics? Or at least worth a shot if you were going to replace them.

    ICE themselves sell the nets. And there are some people on the FB group, maybe I can find the website, that also custom make/mod nets to look like NHL ones.

    If anyone needs some reference photos here's me going through mine - https://photos.app.goo.gl/FbPP8kzuvKkoco3u6

    My handle grips were disgusting, new ones were pricey, some rubbing alcohol and elbow grease made them look like new!
    Replaced the bulbs with LEDs
    3D printed the humps/goal bottoms
    Repaired some crispy connectors
    Polished the dome with Novus
    Replaced some broken reed switches on the shots sensor
    Painted the guys
    Did a quick sand/paint on the coin door
    Replaced all the lexan washers
    Replaced the dome bolts with standard hex ones and some 3D printed washers

    Can anyone advise on Ice Game distributors and their pricing? I know that distributors are prohibited from advertising prices below what Ice sells for, but I'm wondering if I have room to haggle.

    The game I'm looking at is $4795 on the Ice site.

    An authorized distributor on eBay selling for $4795 with free shipping. If eBay's cut is 12.9%, then they get $4215 after fees, so is it reasonable to think I could ping them directly and get the game for $4500 so we both save?

    Thanks for any feedback!

    I purchased my 'Miracle on Ice' version in October of 2014 directly from ICE. The authorized distributors always seem to have their games priced the same as ICE. I don't think that haggling is really an option with the Super Chexx Pro games, but if you can get a few hundred off the ICE price then good for you.

    Yeah let us know how you do!

    Quoted from Chalkey:

    Yeah let us know how you do!

    Full disclosure: it's actually for a Super Kixx game, so even though Chexx is 100x as popular there is still a 3+ month lead time for the Kixx game right now.

    So far, the best price I've found is a Maine dist that quoted me $4695 with free shipping no tax(I'm in Utah and they don't sell enough here to meet some threshold). $100 cheaper than Ice and no tax, not bad.

    As for eBay, they have a few Kixx listed there now and one is buy-it-now at $4795. If they only get $4215 from that sale after fees, maybe $4500 direct to me is a win/win.

    Would like opinions on the "skated on" ice surface.
    Worth it?
    Which do you prefer, classic or skated?

    Thanks

    If I were buying new or had to replace my surface I would go with the skated, unless there was an upcharge for it. I wouldn't swap out for the skated surface if there were no issues with my existing surface.

    It's 200$ more for the skated surface.

    That's rough! I like the skated surface and, again, if I were buying new I'd consider it but 200$ for something completely cosmetic is tough. Already spending over 3k what's 200$

    I have it. I really like it. I think it’s worth the extra $$

    At long last... got my ground lights installed on my Super Chexx! I'm hoping it'll attract some attention from the other side of the brewery as it slowly fades colors.

    I got the skated on when I ordered my super chexx last year. Wasn’t a $200 difference though.

    Is that an accessory or comes with newer machines?

    #2921 4 days ago

    I got it as an add-on accessory for my non-pro super chexx. I believe it's a factory and add-on option for the pro.
