    Acrylic Honor Boxes

    I appreciate that. I did contact you regarding those, however I would prefer acrylic if I can find it. I may still be in touch with you though.

    Acrylic Honor Boxes

    I am getting back into the world of vending and I am wanting to use acrylic honor boxes. I had previously used the pink ribbon boxes from Sheridan, but i was curious if anyone has used any others. I would like to find some plain ones and support the charity of my choice. Does anyone have any ideas where i could purchase some of these? Thanks!

    Dixie Narco Not Accepting Coins

    AZVendor, Thank you for your help! That was the problem. When I removed the motor cover, I found one of the motors not in the home position. I rotated it, and now everything works again. If this continues to happen, I will definitively be in contact with you!
  5. I ran into a problem a few weeks after I got my soda machine running. Now it will not accept any coins. There is product in it, and there is change in the coin changer. The machine is a Dixie Narco 276M, with a Coinco acceptor. Does anyone have any ideas on what might be the cause of this problem?

    Dixie Narco 276M Product Labels

    Yes, I mean the product strips for the buttons. I have one machine that is currently vending the following: Pepsi Mountain Dew A&W Root Beer Fanta Orange Dr. Pepper I need 1 product strip for each of these. Thank you for your help.
  7. First of all, let me thank everyone for all of the great advice I have read and received! I have been doing part-time bulk vending for about 6 months now. I have about 10 locations currently. I add a new one every 2-3 weeks as I continue to work full-time at another job. So far, I have reinvested everything that I have made back into the business. Now I have a small surplus of extra machines, stands, and products. So, my question is what percentage do you recommend to pay yourself? I know that I am not going to get rich off so few machines, but I would like to put the profits I pay myself into a savings account. Please let me know. Thank you!
  8. Hello everyone, I greatly appreciate everyone's help on my last post. Now that I have the machine working, for the most part, where can I get product labels for a Dixie Narco 276M?

    Dixie Narco 276M for a Beginner

    I am still having problems getting the machine to lock. HELP PLEASE. I can get the door to shut and catch the bolt to the inside, but I am having trouble getting the actual T Lock to catch so that it stays shut with the key. What am I doing wrong? Also, I haven't been able to get the machine to vend anything yet. The coin mech and everything appears to be connected (as far as I can tell). I insert the coins, and they enter the coin mech. However, I don't hear the machine trying to vend any product. I have placed a few cans inside each chute, but there appears to be a problem that is preventing the machine from vending. Any ideas?? Thank you!!!!

    Dixie Narco 276M for a Beginner

    Ok, so was able to get the lock figured out. I just didn't have it screwed on all the way. As far as the series, the serial number does not say "90" in it, nor does the motor cover say "shimless stack", so I assume it is an older model. Is there only one model earlier than a series 90? I only ask because I want to download the correct manual so that I will be able to maintain the machine. Again, I greatly appreciate all of your help!
  13. Hello everyone. Let me thank everyone in advance for your help. I have made a small leap from bulk vending to full line by purchasing a used Dixie Narco 276M machine to place in my full time job. However, I have a few questions that I hope some of you seasoned veterans could help with. 1. I want to download a service manual for the machine. I did find manuals online for a Series 90 and a Series II. So, how can I determine which Series my machine is so that I can get the right manual? 2. I am having difficulties getting the locking mechanism to lock. The man that I purchased it from did it with no problem, so I know it is something that I am doing wrong. I line it up and spin the lock, but cannot get it to seat locked. Any advice? 3. It appears that the machine is set up to hold bottles instead of cans. How can I figure this out? If it is for cans, it may just be that I do not yet know what to look for. It just seems that the space is rather large for cans. That is all for now, although I am sure that there will be more questions to come. Thank you!

    Runts at Sams or are they rascals? Runts vs. Rascals

    I have never had Rascals, so I can't help you on that one. However, the best place to order Runts that I have found is through Quill. Surprising, but true.
  15. I have been in the bulk vending business for about 6 months now. After reading some of the posts on here, I am looking to expand to the snack honor box system as well. I have checked out Sheridan Systems and Cameron Packaging as snack honor box suppliers. However, I am just interested in a few to begin with. The minimum order on Sheridan System appears to be 25, which is way to much for me to begin with. As far as Cameron Packaging, I like their boxes, and I can order individuals, but they don't have any graphics, so they are pretty plain. I also checked on vending-business-information.com and I can order individual boxes from them. But, it appears that all of their graphics list $1.25 as the price. This is too high since I was looking at $1 or 2 for $1 items. Does anyone have any idea where I can get a decent box with varying price graphics at lower quantities? Thank you in advance!
