Hi all, hope everyone is doing well Smile

Selling my Taito TT Block cocktail that I picked up from eBay quite sometime ago. I was going to restore it but like all projects I think we know what happened LOL It's been kept under a sheet under my stairs and now that I'm moving it needs to go. My technical knowledge is very limited so I haven't been able to diagnose what the problem is with it and I haven't poked around too much as I've been zapped enough times from other electronics in my time to know better now. When plugged in the monitor powers up nice and bright but that's as far as it gets. From what I can see everything is there so most likely a board issue? Cosmetically the photos speak for themselves, it's seen better days. Dated late 1976/1977 so been around quite sometime. Bad points, no coin tray and there's damage around the coin tray where it's been pried open, one of the legs is at an angle and could do with bending back into place. Legs have surface rust and pitting. Again the pictures do a better job describing than I can hence why I've put so many. Doesn't have keys but is unlocked. Measures 87cm x 57cm x 61cm. Located in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.


I've only seen a few sell online between £150 and £350 based on there condition so offer only what you think it's worth haha

Thanks Thumbs Up

Louis

I'm on here at least a dozen times a day and I missed this post completely up until now so it may be worth giving it a couple more bumps before going to Ebay.

I really don't understand why there isn't more demand for them.

They are tables and can be pretty useful since you can put stuff on top of them and pretend they take up zero space!

The floor plan/space to use and walk around a table for 2p is huge vs upright.
An upright can use the same walkway in front of cab, to stand & use the cab.  
A table could use as much floor space as 2 perhaps even 3 upright cabs due to the above

So when space is the most expensive part of the hobby, or biggest thing most people lack, it makes the decision to buy a table a lot less attractive.

Your idea of how to make it use zero space also gives a zero purpose for the cab.
So I don't get why people would get a table arcade to store stuff on, rather than save the pennies and store on the floor.

I'm loving my Taito cocktail. I've spent about £150 on a Jamma adaptor and 2 nos control panels, and I've chucked in my 60-1 pcb. Just need to wire up 2 x 4 way sticks and I can while away the hours on Pac-Man, frogger, donkey kong, galaga etc.

It also plays modern vert games (as long as they only use 2 buttons!)
