Just a quick hello from a new user. I've read the forum for a while but never joined, decided to finally join as there is an item on the sale listing I'm interested in.

I'm currently putting together original bits for a Street fighter 2 cab (boards, buttons, marquee acquired so far), also building a mame bartop from scratch (just need some art work and a few finishing touches) and on the look out for Galaxians original parts to build repro or original CAB to restore... But with work, young family, budgets etc these always seem to take a backseat! But that's ok as I'm not in a rush and I enjoy the hunt/reading around the hobby as much as the buying and using.

Cheers guys, as you were.

Thanks everyone, already making use of the sales thread! Not sure my missus is too happy I've found somewhere else to look for and buy arcade gaming stuff. I did try to explain it's better than eBay...but I've still got some convincing to do I reckon!

Hi Duckman , There is a way of dealing with the ' Wife ' Issue. I use it all the time its called ' Don't Tell Her ! '. Works for me ;-).

Dave.

P.S I have a nice Zero Point original PCB for sale / Trade if your interested ?

Hi welcome, yes not telling her works for me, until she discovers another machine in the house. I brought that one to sell usually is the line I use. What I didn't say is when I'm going to sell it !
Out of room but always room for one more !

Then clearly you are not lying Daz ! Lol. My wife normally ok to be honest never really moans about the stuff I buy so I am lucky. Do sneak a few things in mind. I do tell her I will sell some but have no intention really. Its a good Strategy to tell them how much you paid and how much its worth.

Welcome to the forums, you will get lots of support here.

There is also a special formula you need to learn when asked “how much did you pay for that” by your wife, take what you paid suggest it was at least 1/4 of the real cost, if still too high just suggest you have gone half’s with a buddy or you are fixing it / storing due to a lack of space.





PS watch out for the unseen strange force that pulls you in, seems it has already got you as you are in For Sale section.

well, for the moment she'll spot new stuff in the garage, but I have "permission" for two cabs at the moment, which will be one dynamo or electrocoin Goliath type, and one galaxians / pacman style.  Once they are in situ, new PCB's can arrive and be stored (hidden) in the base of the cabs out of sight out of mind!

Thumbs Up All good ideas...noted. It was the unseen force that got me to register finally I think, and yes...straight to the sales section!
