Free Donkey Kong 3 Machine!
« on: September 17, 2013, 08:28:54 AM »
Yep, that's right, I'm going to give away the Donkey Kong 3 machine I first broke the world record in for free!  There is no marquee.  The joystick has problems, and the monitor has problems as well.  Still it's a historical item (I first broke the Donkey Kong 3 record on this, and you really can't beat the price! :)

There are 3 requirements though

1.  You have to be a member here
2.  You have to actually like to play Donkey Kong 3!
3.  You have to be willing to pick this sucker up from my apartment in the next 30 days.

Wow! Nice deal! Wish I lived close enough to pick this baby up!

I've been waiting for over a year now for Rusty Quarters to get a DK3 so that I could start seriously going for the 1m+ trifecta. Oh well... just need more patience. It'll happen someday.

Man, I only qualify for #1 (and that's even debatable).  Still, very nice of you to offer that here.  I'm sure someone will take you up that rather quickly.

Adelanto California.  Out by Victorville.  Probably should have mentioned that.

Heck if this wasn't so far. Maybe you could get it fixed rather than giving it away?

Let's just say this.  Because of things that are entirely my own doing the fixing option is not an option even if someone were to give me money to fix the machine.

I wish I was close enough to get it. I would like to fix and preserve it.

Thanks for that.  I really appreciate it.  Well 10 more days, and I am going to have to throw the machine in the garbage.  My have to be a Donkey Kong 3 lover is not a requirement anymore.  In fact, if you want to make it into a Donkey Kong or Donkey Kong Junior machine I am fine with that.  I just don't want it to be turned into a 60 in 1 machine.

You should at the least, pull the board and sell that as you can ship that and if 100% working are at least looking at $75-$100.

Good point, if I have to throw it out I'll take out the board.  I can do that at least.

Put me in with the crowd that wished I lived closer. I'm in PA, so not so much of a day trip to you.

If you do go the pcb sale route, include the wiring harness for those of us that have a DK machine without the proper wiring for DK3.

How close is Daniel Dock from you?  His lair is a blackhole for all things DK.

He lives in San Francisco Hank.  I live in Adelanto California which is close to 500 miles away.  People in Nevada, and Arizona live closer to me than Daniel Dock does.

Ehh, maybe a long shot but you wouldn't mind remove the monitor chassis and send to Sweden? My DK I bought has a defunct chassis and the seller who imported take forever to get it fixed and I don't think it will be repaired since he only got the chassis and my guess is that the tube need a rejuvenation.

Anyway, there are what we know, 4 of these monitors, Sanyo EZ20 in Sweden so they don't grow on trees here.

Or wait? Is it a Sharp monitor on yours?

Anyway #2, whatever the chassis is, is it possible for you to remove it and send? Without the metalplate since it will increase the shippingcost alot. I'll pay for the shippingcost of course. If not, I understand.

Thanks
