  1. https://www.abcvendingproducts.com/collections/machines/products/northwestern-super-60-new This is the style I was referring to. I didn't catch that it was for the Gabriel globes. If your worried about someone unscrewing it, use a security head, it is pretty easy to get the security bits but most people are just too lazy. Here are a couple examples... https://www.fmwfasteners.com/products/8-32-x-1-2-tamper-resistant-torx-button-head-socket-machine-screw-18-8-stainless-steel-t-15?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI8OXt-aH55wIVEtvACh1zoAFVEAQYAiABEgJtS_D_BwE https://www.grainger.com/product/5KA29?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI8OXt-aH55wIVEtvACh1zoAFVEAQYDCABEgKsjPD_BwE&cm_mmc=PPC:+Google+PLA&ef_id=EAIaIQobChMI8OXt-aH55wIVEtvACh1zoAFVEAQYDCABEgKsjPD_BwE:G:s&s_kwcid=AL!2966!3!281733020627!!!g!351220560904!
  2. Are you talking about the screws that hold the globe onto the hopper? All of mine have been replaced with Stainless Steel combination head 8-32 truss head screws 3/8" long. I get them from my local hardware store.
  3. Welcome back, glad to hear your OK with a new ride!

    I would never place a machine without talking to the owner of the property or business. If the owner doesn't want the machine they could just throw it away. Public places would just invite people to walk off with your machine since there is no one watching it. Welcome to the world of vending!
  5. I have one of these, not using it yet... have a feeling people wont understand how to use it properly Easy to use, my preferred style If you can get them used, that will be your best value. Eagle is the only one that makes new mechs. No, the Big Oak mechs will not work, the front plate on the Big Oak is completely flat whereas, 50 cent Vista mechs have a groove cut in the bottom to allow for the chute door to swing allowing the candy/toy to drop out. If you put a Big Oak mech on a vista the chute will only open about 1/2 in. One of these days I want to play with a Big Oak mech and see if I can fill in with weld and machine out the groove... probably more work than its worth honestly...
  6. Mike, I don't want to dismiss your experience in any way but it is very disappointing Rodney was rude to you. I have used Rodney in the past and if I need a locator I will gladly use him again. I honestly locate all of my machines myself now. Using a locator is nice for me when I expand into a new area but for towns I am established in already, I just do it myself. I hope (truly) that the person that is locating for you does a good job and you are happy with them. A bad experience with a locator can be very disheartening and frustrating. Be careful there are quite a few "fly by night" or rip off locators out there. Come back and let us know how your locator does. I personally would like to hear.
  7. if you mean the display cards, Sweetstop is a member here and makes labels for all kinds of candy https://sweetstopvending.auctivacommerce.com/Bouncy-Balls-C377196.aspx?sid=1794
  8. Lol, I had one location that the owners 8 yo daughter collected BB's. She had to have bought 200+ before stopping, it was great. Some of it depends on whether its repeat traffic or new traffic, generally speaking. You could also swap it out for a mystery mix 1in capsules every 6 months or so. Depending on the machine is how tough it is to switch between the two.
  9. I run all my BB's in normal oak/eagle machines. Gimmick machines just means more to break on them.
  10. Check out Sweetstop he is a member here and does labels for a good price. He is a vendor but does labels on the side... or is it vending on the side? Either way here ya go. https://sweetstopvending.auctivacommerce.com/Default.aspx
  11. Eagle did have a website just 3 years ago. I asked them why they took it down and the response was that it just wasn't worth the expense. There were no prices and you still had to pick up the phone to order but it was nice to be able to look at the options of machines, stands and colors available. CandyMachines.com has the best selection I have seen for their machines online https://www.candymachines.com/Eagle-Vending-Machines-C411.aspx
  12. Avoid peanuts, they do damage the machine and the machine just ends up looking nasty really fast. Here is what I set my machines at. Peanut MM's 5 per vend. Regular MM's 10 per vend.
  13. Can you give an example for this? Everything I have read says that sales tax is paid on gross sales, so I am curious where and what circumstances this is incorrect.
  14. Repost this in the Food and Beverage vending section. We bulk vendors dont understand the fancy words you are using. 😁
