There's a local auction by me by a liquidation company because a business that rented out and owned a large amount of arcade machines. Most of the things listed in the auction are for arcade PCBs. I don't want to see these things end up in the dump because a lot of them are irreplaceable relics. A lot of local collectors are swooping in on it and bidding up all two working machines in the auction (gunbird, and a rolling thunder cocktail). Is it a bad idea to bid on about 100 bucks on arcade PCBs? Would I ever get any decent trades for them?

I'm also pretty hyped to get my hands on this control panel. It comes with two cores for the internals of the cabinet. I'm mostly excited about this one because whenever I got a chance to play it, it was always set to something like a dollar a play and ate through quarters like mad so I never got a chance to beat it.

I have a question for anyone who owns an arcade cabinet; is this a huge mistake and a future money hole?

And right as I posted this I was outbid on the lot with sunset riders and tech romancer. The auction ends on the 12th and I'm still hopeful about that control panel and can now put more money towards another lot that contains third strike.

I did it for anyone who read the thread, I am the proud owner of a third strike cart and a cps3 motherboard. I ended up going with that because the parts for it are still being sold/traded on a still alive videogame forum of dedicated neckbeards. I think I'm going to end up selling it so not only I make some money off of it, but it gets into the hands of someone with the technical skill to restore it.

Good luck with finding someone to do any electronic repairs. There's fuck all for jobs in the US for electronic engineers, and I've been working for a fucking phone company wrangling retards for almost a decade. In that time, all I've done for EE was modify a couple consoles. Still, congratulations. Maybe scrounge around some coin-op forums for advice on restoring everything? They're generally pretty friendly and helpful people around those places.

I found that most of the stuff I'm missing on the main board for the cps3 is computer standard stuff like a specific CD ROM drive that goes for 10 to 20 bucks on eBay but I also found out that the cps3 I have is worth at least twice what I paid for the the entire lot just because of it's difficult to replace proprietary parts alone. I think I'm going to sell it on that forum but now I'm stuck with the issue of wether I should sell it as is or cobble some shit together for it and test it in order to get a better return on my money. It seems like a bad idea to keep a hold of it because there's mobs of people who would be excited to restore it instead of it just sitting on my shelf on the off chance I actually get my hands on a 6 button arcade cabinet.
