Who the fudge is cleaning electronics with freon? You're going to end up severely disabled and brain damaged. The stuff is poison.

FedEx won't take them anymore only ups ground and you have to take them to the main center not the stores. I had to ship 300 cans of butane last year and learned this lol. or you can just send usps and not tell them

Yeah, that'll fly real well when you get flagged for sending flammable items. I'm sure homeland security will like to pay you a visit.

Are you sure about the Fed Ex thing? I see a ton of sold listings, so I can't imagine its that much of an issue. Also, Freon is non-flammable.

lol homeland security coming over 10 cans of freon. i wouldn't do it as a regular thing, but if you're only selling 10 cans its probably fine.

personally i would just sell all 10 cans at once for a discount and just send them ups though.

So I replaced the top screen of that 3DS I bought last week. I always hated disassembling the DS, but man did they make the 3DS a pain in the ass. I always hated rolling those ribbon cables up to pass through the hinge.

I went to the thrift store today and they had a bunch of PS1 and 2 games. I bought Activision Classics and Army Men Air Attack 2 for 3 each, would have bought more but I only had 10. Also got Age of Empires complete pack and a Ms Pacman game for PC and a Sevendust CD for 2 total.

Sega Master System in box.

$80

Unused but box has some water damage.

Scares me because I have no Master System games to test and by the time I order one for testing I will be outside the return period.

Correct. They should have something for $5 or less, maybe even closer to $2. It will be a crap game, but for testing purposes it would be perfect.

The original Sega Master System model has a built in maze game that can be accessed through two possible methods, depending on console type. Hold Up + 1 + 2 at the instruction screen or hold those buttons down and turn on the game console until the game appears.

Worth trying just to see if the sucker can play a game. Leaves the jury out on the two cart slots, but still an awesome find in the wild these days.

Seems I stand corrected. Still need to try at least the main slot, and he should easily find a SMS game at one of his local used game stores for a few dollars. Last time I was in KC there was a vintage stock pretty much every 15 minutes.

Yesterday I had an incredible find. I bought this Mamiya 645DF medium format digital kit with a 33mp Leaf digital back and two lenses, case and extras for $1,900. I know the person that runs the Vermont Center for Photography and some old rich dentist up and donated all his photography gear. There were boxes for everything. When he bought this kit in 2009 the digital back was 20k. The 150mm lens was $3,500, etc.

I am over the moon. Its a little outdated, but produces incredible quality.

Two years ago I bought a 30mp digital back for my Hasselblad camera. I can resell that back for 2k, and it will have been like an even swap for this kit.

So awesome.

That reminds me, I'm in possession of a bunch of old camera items a dentist donated to a Jewish temple I volunteer for. I don't know what any of this stuff even is, but I know it's not digital.
