I haven't seen any posts here on how to search for machines, I know we all probably have different ways to find them.  I wanted to pass on my method of searching, maybe it could help someone.

I usually search Craigslist, but you are limited to the locale in your search.  One way is to use Google, and in the search box, type:

"Coke Machine" site:craigslist.org

This will search all of Craigslist, where I have found some good machines, many miles away.  Obviously you can replace "Coke Machine" with anything you're looking for, but it's a start!

How/Where does everyone else search?

       Wow, thanks for sharing guys. Just found a machine that I would have otherwise missed.

       And here's another one too far from me but Terry may be interested although
they want a lot of money for it!  biggrin

It all depends on what area you are searching... If you are searching near me, search CL for dirty socks.. biggrin

Just kidding.. I look for a few different things, so I just go by category and check 4 different categories in the 4 groups in my area... if I am really bored at work, Ill search a few others...

I've used both methods as well, the problem with the first craigslist search method is that it doesn't catch the listing as it's newly posted... I've heard it's 2-3 days late??? but still a nice feature, if your willing to get stuff shipped, or willing to drive a ways.

I found my Cavalier 72 on Craigslist.  I used to search only under "coke machine", later I found more machines, including mine, on Craigslist that were but not under "coke machine" but under  "cola machine".

Other than the usual "coke" "coca" "vending", "dispenser" can sometimes yield unexpected results.
