  1. $30 consignment shop find

    Thanks. By same machine do you mean they're both Eagles?

    So the one on the left is an Eagle. What's the other one? Also both locks are bad. Where to get new ones and will both be the same? No idea why they had marbles in them. https://www.flickr.com/photos/149582526@N03/shares/37o7gr
  4. Another lost key thread

    My teenage son managed to lose the keys to a routepro triple. It's about out of product and loaded with quarters too. Is there any recourse other than just hauling the thing to a locksmith? What a pain.
  5. Old bulk hot nut machine

    Thought you guys might be interested in this. My wife's grandfather built a theater in a little town called Grangeville Idaho in 1930. Now my brother in law runs the theater. This old, electric, hot nut bulk machine was in the theater. One of the heads takes nickels, the other two take dimes. The dang thing still works too. Key is long gone but you can hear coins rattling around in there.
  6. Base for Dixie Narco 601E

    It's for sure a Mars although not certain which model.

    What would one use for an external filter? A piece of furnace filter attached to the outside of the machine somehow?
  8. Base for Dixie Narco 601E

    I am worried about the dust. Initially I thought about one of those fiberglass pads that you sometimes see central air conditioning units at homes sitting on. We also have a lot of dust storms to go with the heavy equipment. I was wondering if I should put something say between the two boards, (or steel plates) to minimize the loose dust under the machine. Hardi backer? The cement under layment they use for tiles. Just a thought. I have a sheet of it on the ground in front of my lawn mower shed that has been walked and driven on for years. Seems like fairly tough stuff.

    No it's not like that. It's packed road mix and against a building. Very solid surface. It will be under constant observation by the managers of the scale. It's in an enclosed 100 acre facility that is filled with heavy equipment moving past 5 days a week all day. Besides If it's not rock solid I won't do it.

    Excellent idea thank you. So I have some 2 x 6's, is that not high enough? Do I need to go with the 4 x 6's? Thanks very much.
  11. Hello, I am putting a DN601E next to a heavily trafficked truck scale at a grain and corn storage facility. I am putting it outside on the north side of the scale house facing the scale. Unfortunately the north side is not paved, but is packed road mix. Is there anything handy I could or should use as a base for the machine? I have thought of a couple things. Possibly 4, 12" x 12" but 1 1/2" landscape pavers, one on each corner. Or possibly a sheet of hardi backer concrete board. This is what is used as a flooring underlayment for tile. Any other ideas from you experienced guys on here? Should I place a pad like that or can I just put it on the gravel? Thank you
  12. Vendstar 3000 disassembly?

    That's what I did. Didn't improve any yellowing. Make sure that 100 percent of the water is out of the candy wheels before you put product in. I had to adjust them anyway so I took them apart and dried them thoroughly.

    Ran mine through the dishwasher, no heat dry. Got Krylon paint and viola.
  14. Lipstick on a pig

    I didn't take them apart. Just took them off. I had new doors for the chutes so I painted them separately and installed them later. It was really quite easy and didn't take long. Let's see it when you're done. I have two more to paint and I'd like to see a different paint scheme.
