  1. I agree with non legal zoom, they charged way too much. What type of business depends on what your needs and goals are. I got good advice from an accountant, since they know the tax laws inside and out Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  2. Have you checked the sticky under the locating section of the forum?
  3. Looks good man. I hope they work out for you.
  4. It's been over a year i've been in the pacific northwest, and I've only had one jam up of mike and ike. I cleared it, and did absolutely nothing, and it never has happened again. Can't tell you why it happened, but keep all your candy out of direct sunlight.
  5. Whoa whoa whoa...don't buy any location and machine for $400. That's just way too much. Especially a triple machine. Especially if you're just starting out. Get a machine ready and locate yourself or hire a better locator like Rodney on this site to get you a location for a fraction of that. I'd start out with a double gumballs and bouncy balls at a barber shop etc. But whatever you do, do some reading first in the beginners sticky Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah, the chances of having that many coins is slim, sounds like it'd be a good sell in theory, but without bills or card, I can see why they flopped.
  7. I'm curious how it works? Those things are $2.50 at the store at least. Does it have a bill validator?
  8. Sounds good, some people are willing to work out payment plans too. I've tried calling a few of my competitors before, mainly to let them know they had an empty machine, I get mixed receptions, but sounds like it worked out great for you, hope it works out.
  9. That's my biggest pet peeve with the general public. If you worked for the charity and got a salary they'd be ok, but if you work with the charity and only pay a monthly fee people get upset. I'm always honest too, tho I never give figures because people can't see the big picture. I figure if I'm honest and can't keep a location, I don't want it. And if I lost all my locations being honest, I'd change my business model. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  10. I agree wit this, they also break easily if you're not careful, esp. if they're oaks. I'm a little OCD about my machines though, and like them to look almost new, which isn't necessarily the most profitable outlook. I do see a lot of other guys with cloudly looking machines, and they seem to still be making money. So I can't say what i'm doing is right, but I personally just can't do it.
  11. Globes for the soap and water, and possibly headlight cleaner. The bodies for the powder coating Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  12. If regular ol' soap and water doesn't due the trick, some have mentioned headlight cleaner. I've tried it, it sort of works for me. I honestly just buy new globes from oak or ebay. But you might try the headlight cleaner kits. I've also tried aircraft stripper and paint thinner, and it doesn't always make things easier either due to the powder coating. Usually I do a light sanding and several coats of paint. If I'm really trying to be fancy, I take it and get it sandblasted and powder coated. A bit more in cost, but they do great work and it'll last for years and years.
  13. Looks good! Let us know how it holds up after some use, I might paint some of my old 1800's I got laying around.
  14. Oak also makes collection bases like the nw 60 for a lil extra... honestly that's what I want on all my oaks..I have it on 2 right now..I'd rather scoop than take the whole thing off Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  15. Those NW trays end up getting stuck in my highest earners. Like I would have to scoop quarters out just to make room to pull out the tray, so I removed the trays. For oaks if it's a double, I normally set the head on top of the other head, but there's always that risk that I'll knock it over and spill everything, hasnt happened yet tho.
