  1. Vandalism

    Pick the stuff out when you're counting the money.
  2. Help! Name as many different candies as possible

    Any of the big 3 will be able to provide you with that variety. Ford Gum, sold under Carousel brand. Oak Leaf, sold by Sweetworks. Concord Confectioners.
  3. Ways to get rust off machines/racks?

    It's a lot easier to cover up rust with paint. Get all loose rust off with a wire brush or sanding disk, thoroughly clean with alcohol, then paint with a rust covering paint. Rustoleum safety red matches Northwesterns, Rustoleum semi gloss professional black works well for stands.
  4. Stickers inside globe or outside

    We used double sided tape inside the globes for a long time, now we use Scotch Reusable Tabs. We buy the 1"X1" tabs and cut them into fourths. One on each top corner is all you need.
  5. Identify machine

    Vendesign on the left, Routemaster on the right.
  6. Need a new parts supplier.

    A company that sells locks: https://www.laigroup.com/accessories-high-security-hasps-vending-locks-padlocks.php
  7. Coin scales

    I can corroborate that My Weight makes excellent scales, I have 2 of their digital pocket scales that I like a lot. There are a few quarters out there that you can only confirm as silver by weight. I have used the pocket scales for that. I would suggest buying from: https://www.oldwillknottscales.com/buy-my-weigh-scales.html. They have outstanding customer service, calibration weights and a knowledgeable person on the phone to answer any scale questions you might have when you call them.
  8. route purchase

    Good job!
  9. Crazy Bananas

    .4 to .5 oz. Smallest wheel setting on NW or what I call bevel on Oaks.
  10. what should I use?

    5 gallon buckets work well for pouring 2" products.
  11. Crazy Bananas

    I bought 1 case on the last Oak Leaf order, don't really have a feel for how well they're selling yet.
  12. Coin scales

    I was there too, I'm sorry to have missed you. While you were talking to Andrew, you didn't happen to have someone walk by and tell you how much they liked their Acucount did you, if you did, that was me.
  13. Crazy Bananas

    Electrical tape.
  14. Account of two years wants lower prices?

    Wrong forum, try beverage and snack forum.
  15. Coin scales

    There are YouTube videos showing the operation of the counter and explaining how to do different things with the counter. If you're very anal (like me) and everything has to come out exactly to the coin, then occasionally you will have to "reprogram coin". It's an easy 2 minute process that keeps everything accurate. For bank deposits we have a Glory mechanical counter that counts every coin and rejects anything that is not a quarter. That count is double checked with the Acucount. The bank will count the coins a third time when we deposit them. Very seldom is there a problem, mostly their coin counter rejects Canadian quarters and ours does not. As an aside, we used to do business with a big bank who would not count the coins at a Branch but send them to a central location where 3 days later our account would be credited, the count was always 50c to $3 short on each $500 bag. I knew they were wrong but there was nothing I felt like doing about it. On day when they credited a bag they said we were $63 short. I called them up and told them there was no way that could happen, they told me I was SOL. I switched banks and the discrepancies magically disappeared.
