    Anyone Interested

    I refurbished this balloon machine and I would like to see if anyone is interested in it. It is set up to bend 1.1 capsules but I can put what ever wheel you would like. I would be willing to ship as long as you are willing to pay. All powder coated finish with new digital printed vinyl graphics. This finish will last for years in any condition.

    My Vend Track Software is now FREE

    So true....
  4. I operate pretty much the same as AMD. My commissions average out to 35% with less than a handful of my locations being over 40%

    Lost machine

    Lost machine = $100.00 Attorney Fee's = $5,000.00 Throat Punching the Jerk who Stole your machine = Priceless

    North Western Super 80

    There should be a retaining clip on the back of the lock behind the door. Send me a photo and I should be able to help you out.

    Restaurant supply stands

    No, I'm afraid I don't have a clue to where you would get these flanges at. But it does appear to be something that your local machine shop could produce rather cheaply.

    Got this for free today

    If I were a betting man I would say 60's - 70's time frame. Do you have a photo of the back of the globes and product wheels? These would look great powder coated back to there original blue.

    Good day locating

    Beware of the Hut!!!! If it is a franchise location they will give you the boot more than likely. Keep a close eye on it thought. But on a lighter note congratulations!!!!

    PMM and MM containers

    I like them better than the bags. They are a lot easier to seal than the bags that's for sure.

    Refurbishing Bulk Machines

    Here is an example of a recent refurbishment that I done for a local Antique store. They purchased this machine from an estate auction and was going to place it for sale in there store. I priced this at $83.75 most of which being the new globe. If a machine has all the parts (mainly the globe) available you are looking at anywhere from $45-$70 depending on the condition of the parts when I receive them.

    Refurbishing Bulk Machines

    Right now it would only be me working on others peoples equipment. I may branch out to selling equipment but as of now no. As far as the profit margin it depends on the condition of the equipment that is sent to me.

    Refurbishing Bulk Machines

    Hey guys and gals, I have a quick question I want to run by you all. I am thinking about starting a side venture to my bulk routes. I am looking to see if there is interest out there for machine refurbishing. We have been in the business since 1956 and have learned some pretty cool tricks over the years. If this is something you may think would be viable please leave me a comment. I am just curious on whats out there.

    ever have a machine stolen?

    No point of adding trackers to much time, money, and hassle. It is part of the business over the years I have lost count of how many machines that I have had come up missing.
