Electrodart on eBay

Postby rippyspennyarcade » Mon Apr 16, 2018 2:58 pm

Regarding the Electrodart for sale on eBay, Item Number 273157765732, if you look at picture 3 you can see the dart image lit just above the SCORE EITHER, yet on picture 2 (inside) there are NO wires and no bulb or bulb holder in sight. The seller Messaged me stating clearly that 'no wires were missing'. How did that image manage to light up on picture 3 then?

On closer inspection it's probably the brightness from the extra bulb added in the top Electrodart sign, but clearly wires are missing, as the two payout thermal blocks are missing from below the six relays. Possibly the seller would not know this though, and I always seem to remember square payout cups on these Electrodart Machines.

You're right, the key parts are missing, but these cups are correct. In fact I would say there have have been more with round cups, as seen on this site and the two I have are not square.... Still seems to be fetching the money though, maybe they are after the added worm family.

That's the most complete Electrodart I've seen offered for ages.

£206. End price. The seller was close to me, but gave it a miss. Where do you start with electrics like that? :shock:

No one seems to have mentioned on the forum the woodworm on the Electro Dart on ebay. When you zoom in on the backboard and even the front case it looks riddled with it. Not easy to treat around the electrics unless you strip everything off. I have always found plywood needs not only all the holes doing a couple of times but the board having soakings of woodworm killer by a brush on it.

I had a couple of rough machines once that I bought from a slots auction with woodworm... ie a Caille pinwheel and a Greyhound Stadium. I injected the worm holes and stripped off all the varnish over the veneered case. Then I brushed on coats of wood worm killer. However I was really shocked when next day I knocked the case badly and part of the wood fell off to reveal live larvae woodworm... As the two cases were only plywood verneered I decided I had to cut my loses and pay a cabinet maker to make new cases.

I bought the Electrodart, picked it up Tuesday, & started work on it today.
It was very wormy, but apart from the base, the actual case isn't too bad.
The rear panel & the board that the door electrics mount on were toast, I didn't need to unscrew anything off the back board, the screws just pulled out!
Made up a new back board & re-mounted the mechs today. Started to make the front board & sealed the glass.

The worm had even eaten the supplier's sticker!

Just reading this post. Did the seller mention how bad the word worm was on the listing? Good luck with your resto. !THUMBS!

He did say that it had worm damage, but he didn't think it was recent. I've not found any live worm yet, so think they all died off years ago.
