  1. Does anybody run a vending business in Oregon that would be able to help me understand the requirements for starting a vending business here? Specifically in Washington County?
  2. I was driving home after work, and saw what i thought was a beaver machine on a wood stand on the side of the road with a free sign on it. I pulled over and hurriedly threw in my Suburban. I heard change was still in it when i picked it up. I didn't really check out the machine till i got home and realized it wasn't a Beaver but a knockoff brand made by Sales Force. I was even more dismayed at the condition the machine was in and what the machine is made out of. It's mostly plastic except for the coin mech and the top. Upon further inspection there was no lock on the machine just a nut that was tightened on to keep the lid in place. The lid is pretty much wrecked as it looks like the lock that used to be there was drilled out in the past and the surrounding area was heavily damaged. The body is made out of plastic and was shattered in the past then glued back together in a couple places. On the upside i got a nice stand and $2.75 in quarters out of it as well as a usable coin mech i will probably sell. I also got a spare candy wheel out of it too that i will hold onto.
  3. Making stands

    I've been looking at making some out of large table legs with a nice varnish on em. Thinking it would be a lot cheaper than making a pipe stand.

    The light fixture harness will get completely replaced. The conversion kit plugs into the main harness where the old light fixture harness is currently plugged into. Unless there's a problem with main harness this should work no problem.

    Awesome! looks like i will just convert it over then.

    Thanks for all the info guys. I found an LED conversion kit on ebay for 90 bucks. Would it be worth it to convert it over? http://m.ebay.com/itm/142023955773?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368

    Never mind, please disregard the last post. i think there's an issue with the old wiring for the light fixtures or the fixtures themselves. sometimes when i jiggle the wires the lights will come on very briefly.
  8. Lights won't come on. DN 368

    I figured out what was wrong. When bought the machine the guy gave me some lights in some packaging and said they were new. I switched the old bulbs out for those and still had the problem. went to the store and bought new bulbs myself and voila. it works now. I guess you shouldn't trust bulbs given to you lmao.
  9. Lights won't come on. DN 368

    I made sure to wire them exactly as the old ones were wired. What do you mean by "run power to the ballasts"? Is that different than wiring them and plugging the machine in?
  10. The lights in my DN 368 won't come on after i replaced both the ballasts. Before i replaced them the lights would only come on every once in awhile and they would be extremely dim. Symptoms of bad ballasts. So i bought two ballasts of same make and model just newer, Installed them to the same wires the old ones were attached to and the lights haven't come on. Any idea what could be going on?
  11. Donations

    I've only been here a few weeks but have learned a ton already and i'm still going through old threads taking more info in all the time. I hope the donation helps.

    Here in Oregon all carbonated drinks and water bottles are charged a 5 cent deposit per can/bottle at purchase. We can return those to stores that have bottle return machines, but every place except for a few locations only allow 144 cans per person per day. There are always long lines, long waits and out of service machines for what amounts to only 7.20$. That's why we have had such low return rates for the last couple of years because it's simply not worth it.

    I've been doing a ton of reading the past few weeks since i found this forum and came to the same conclusion. While we don't have sales tax here in Oregon we do have to pay bottle deposit of 5 cents right now. Unfortunately It's going to increase to 10 cents Beginning of next year because of a low return rate.

    I'm in Hillsboro Oregon which is about 25 minutes west of Portland. I don't have anything located yet, but i'm waiting to hear back from my brothers boss about putting a bulk machine in one of their game store locations. Working on getting my dn368 into a good enough condition to put in a location. There's a few minor problems i need to fix before i'm satisfied with it.

    Thanks for the info! There are typically slim pickens where i'm at but i don't want to buy junk and deal with it later on.
