    SSM was planning on carrying the NW mechs and some parts, and A&A is going to carry almost all of the parts for NW machines. http://ssmvending.com/northwestern/

    WEIGHT Machines

    Be careful of Flying J truck stops, they were just bought into by Buffet. When his company bought Dairy Queen 20 years ago we lost a few locations when they booted the bulk. Don't know if that was company policy or we just had a nervous franchise owner...

    1 inch capsules that sell good for 50 cents

    If its for a commercial rack I would suggest 'Adopt a Puppy' from A&A....if for a charity two head then 'Emoji Toys & More' from Flatline.

    Steampunk Ideas ?

    SSM sent out an email last week showing a new line of "Steampunk" tattoos. Last I looked it still was not up on the website yet, but they can email you a photo of the display.

    Vending 2 Gumballs

    If it is a normal retail / restaurant type location with kids as part of the traffic I would add Emoti gum from A&A to the DB 850 assorted mix at one out of 3 or 4. Your cost will go from 9+% to 12% but you will have a unique product with a lot less increase in expense. The kids that really want the Emoti will end up spending a couple quarters with each visit....same tried and true concept of the 'loss leader' in a general cheap toy mix. We don't do charity, but if we did I sure would at least test this strategy (for those locations with competition offering assorted gum).

    How should I acquire this location?

    That bottom shelf on the small rack is designed and sold by Oak and should only be able to hold 3 of their Vista's. You should probably remove one of the NW's before there is a big mess to clean - one of the reasons I don't care for those racks is the front support cross bar....it's just an invitation for kids to start climbing...sits there like the first rung of a ladder...

    Need treasure chest "shield"

    Smart Industries should have it....but shipping will be very high. HAvending has best solution (home depot) if you can't pick up part without shipping. I would use this peel n stick clear corner guard to unite the vertical joints of the panels, just because I am afraid of any hardware that might snag a tag... http://www.homedepot.com/p/Trimaco-5-8-in-x-5-8-in-x-4-ft-Self-Stick-Plastic-Corner-Guard-Residential-11434A/202061358 I have never used home depots version, we use these on our mall bulk displays: http://www.kofflersales.com/p/corner-guards-clear-and-colored.asp?gclid=CLXn3dHPl9QCFQIRaQodLhQF6w The 3/4 x 3/4 heavy duty clear 4ft works good (peel n stick option).

    That's a Beaver wheel, set up for 1.1" capsules. To convert to a gum wheel, you just add another spring to the remaining empty hole on the brush off plate. Or you can replace the entire set with an Oak set (wheel, riser & brush off plate).

    Action bulk vending

    I bought a pallet of used Beavers from them this past summer, and about a month ago asked about buying more. They told me they were no longer taking credit cards and I would have to use pay pal...that plus the poor service scared me off from ordering again. It seemed to me that they might not be around too much longer - but I have no idea of their current status.
