New from Cornwall

Post by Cornishcoinopp »

Hello folks I'm new as most of you where at one point im from corwall i deal a lot with arcade machines and games too. I've just purchased 3 capsule machines they are near on all plastic no name on them and missing the locks ( where do I get them from ) as I've had to get them out without any keys one of the machines is on sweet vend I've heard that rules have changed on them due to Allergens as such is it worth me converting it to capsule vend 32mm. Unless I'm missing something here I read that 50 filled CE cert capsules is £11.95 free delivery that makes it no profit at all on 20p vend anyway fantastic forum you will be seeing a lot of me here

250 20mm toys at Toyvend will cost you 17.50 plus vat so still some profit at 20p They are probably your best bet for parts as well.
You can upgrade the mechs to 50p. 32mm balls should sell well for 50p. wont cost you more than 10p each.
If its sweets you can change them to 50p vend and increase the portion size to maximum. Should work for skittles or eggs.
