After some thought and then some more thought, I have decided to let go of my SHUFFLETECH. Here is the brief history of the unit. I acquired it in an estate sale about a year ago (it came with the table that I purchased). I feared the worst, having done my homework prior to purchasing as I know that the units can sometimes be finicky... Once in my possession, I cleaned it up as best as I could and it was all in working order. It never made it into our main home games (the reason being is that we prefer using KEM Bridge sized cards). I proceeded to successfully build a sidecart for it which is now sitting in my garage. All in all it is a great unit, that I really don't see why naysayers hate it so much. I have kept the auction open for a few weeks, so get the word out or if you are looking at paying it forward to your home game host... this is a great chance to grab one of these units. You can do your own homework on other websites to see that this is a great price!
Please read the notes below carefully before bidding.
What the AUCTION WINNER receives:
- Shuffletech 1000
- 2 *NEW* MODIANO decks of cards (1 red, 1 blue; Bridge/Jumbo)
- Shuffletech unit instruction booklet
- AC/DC Power Cord (bought from bestbuy; works well, suited for mounting under a table; *buyer may need to buy a 90degree angle tip for the unit to sit flat on a table)
- A card game where no one groans about dealing and you avoid the classic "story-teller" or "microphone" dealer who takes 5 minutes to shuffle-up and deal! ^^
- Mount Kit Plate*
^^ Not my guarantee!
****AUCTION ENDS: Friday, July 31, 2020 @9:00 pm (TORONTO TIME/Eastern Time)****
Exterior of unit - great shape, a few nicks and scratches, but nothing to be bothered about
Interior of unit - I did not dare take it apart as this is not in my skillset. Q-tip cleaning of the rollers was all I attempted.
Shuffletech preferences - What I learnt: It HATES Bridge sized cards. LOVES my copag poker sized cards. I am willing to do testing for bidders with the decks I currently have in my possession (KEM, Modiano, Copag, Bicycle, WSOP, gemaco, and I think that may be it). Let me know if you would like me to test decks that I have and I will run them in the laboratory (my garage)
COVID concerns - Unit has not been around others outside my COVID-free household.
Shipping & Handling - I will be packing the unit with bubblewrap and as much styrofoam as I can to ensure the Shuffletech get safely to your address.
I am not sure if I missed anything, but take a look at the pics below and I would be happy to answer any and all questions you may have about the unit.
GOOD LUCK to ALL!
Toronto, Ontario, CANADA
