Bought this today $300 bucks

Postby Richard13 » Thu Jun 23, 2016 4:12 pm

Bought this poor little orphan off Craigslist today for $350. I had to it was calling me but before I did I researched the forum and found 76 posts for the Columbia and most of them were well had some disparaging comments about this little beast!

The guy was selling it for his 82 year old father, they spent $75 at a local slot place having it cleaned and lubed and it plays like a charm. Reels spin nice it pays out almost correct 6 when should be 5 sometimes. Did not take it apart because I have two machines apart right now....its a sickness. Needs a coin box any ideas guys?

Looking for survivor machines especially vendor fronts or original side vendors with or without
a machine. 1920's-30's goosenecks, round escalators. I enjoy hand painting the castings.

Very nice find but those speckles are Radioactive material so you better send it to me. I will gladly give you your $350.00 so you are not out any money :) Rick B

Let me guess you want me to pay for shipping too? Maybe we should wait until I find a cash box and THEN send it to you lol!

Now that you mention it I will split it with you. Your half is the disposal fee
