Bad Gameplay Video Filmed From Neck

Reason why you never use Blue Harbor Freight Dollys

(been working fine since I got it in July but full disclosure).

Feel free to hit me up with trades. Especially interested in Whirl-Wind, The Simpsons Pinball Party, lower end Stern Star Wars, and lower Twilight Zones +/- cash as appropriate. Also looking for a lower end Golden Tee, San Francisco Rush, Hyperspin, or Outrun.

Edit: Vans fixed. Could bring to York Show Saturday for the right deal.

Edit 2:
I have always done my best to be completely honest in my listings and be 100% fair in my descriptions (check my feedback) so I am adding this section. The first buyer I spoke with was a high end collector who passed on my machine due to the clear coat. The 4 fish on the front look perfect because a previous owner had applied new decals over the originals and then applied a new coat of automotive clear coat. Apparently the proper way to do this is to apply clear coat and then put a decal on. I personally don't care and can't tell unless I take off the glass and run my hand over where these insert stickers are. As you can see from the photos, everything looks fine. That clear coat should keep the play-field looking nice for many years to come.

Please watch 1:30 through ~3:00 in the original descriptive video where I point out the negatives to this machine.

I have received many offers on this machine... over 27 to date but still don't have a final deal. At this point in time I am not willing to ship. I have been offered $4,000 to have it shipped, and have passed for two reasons. Please don't try to argue with me over PMs.

1. I would like to shake hands with someone local that has play-tested the machine (I always do).
2. I would like to go to the York show with cash in hand to buy another machine (preferably a Whirl-Wind or maybe a TSPP).
3. It is sooo much easier to move a pin with a buddy. My pins are in a walkout basement with no steps, but I have a slight uneven hill I could use a spotter on for 30 seconds while I push it up the hill just in case something happens like the dolly breaking.

I am still replying back and forth with several folks, and expect to have a deal in place in the next few days.

I am inviting anyone who wants to to point out any negatives to my machine that they see.
