Yes that does worry me, fortunately most of them are in a family setting
and not just a single guy.
I just got a call from a customer in Princeton, NJ. Asking if I can fix
his antique juke box next time I'm up in PA visiting family. I only
charge the travel time from where I am in PA to the job, he'll pay about
$250 for me to get to his front door and back, plus the repair. Funny
thing is he wasn't my customer when I lived in PA, he found me after I
moved down here in TN.
No. Most of the time I'm not a great salesman so I try to stay away
from sales. Oh, I do suppose you mean "electro-mechanical" they were
made from the 1930's to the late 1970's. Big difference over the years.
I have worked on some that are strictly mechanical also, quite rare.
If I run into a really good deal I may buy it and sell it "as is". No
one wants to pay me for all the time I put into a machine with a warranty.
Where is a good place to get pinball rubbers these days I have two
Mata Hari pinballs the electromechanical and the electronic version I
want to clean up. I could also use some of the trifurcated pins to
rebuild the power connectors.
