Taito Stools - Fall 2018 Order

Post by rancor » August 20th, 2018, 3:09 am

Ok, lets get started with the 43cm or 48cm Taito stool group buy. ;) Please read all of the below before you order.

I will keep this order open until September 6th*. I reserve the right to close it early if there gets to be more than I feel I can handle. This is a group buy for brand new 43cm or 48cm Taito stools, and will take a month to be manufactured. They should all be at my house by ~October 3rd. I will then begin shipping as soon as possible in the order of who paid.

For this order, you can get either 43cm or 48cm. You cannot order just one of each. ( 43cm + 48cm). You must order at least 2 of whatever size you want. There's no need to MP me here on AO about anything - a few times each day I will update the list below with who has paid, and I will also update when the stools are received and when I ship.

There will be a time from August 26th to August 28th that I will be away from my computer, and cannot update the "paid" list.

IMPORTANT - When sending me money please include your username here on this forum, and MAKE SURE YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS IS CORRECT. I will be using your address in Paypal - NOT the one you MP me or send to me by email. It's too confusing to keep track of things if there are too many "special cases" - I want to be able to reference everything in one place.

Price:

For UK / France / USA / Switzerland / Australia / Singapore the prices are:
Other countries, please inquire and I will post the prices here.


2 stools - $250.00 USD

3 stools - $300.00 USD

4 stools - $500.00 USD

5 stools - $550.00 USD

6 stools - $600.00 USD

7 stools - $675.00 USD:

8 stools - $850.00 USD

12 stools - $1500.00 USD

Please inquire if you need a different quantity.

This includes surface shipping, and will come with a tracking number. Your stools will arrive 4-6 weeks after I ship, so we're looking at the stools arriving at your door 11 to 14 weeks after you make payment. You can track your shipment here:

Send the money to: CLOSED (Goods / services, please - not "Gift")

In the "notes", please remember to write your username and how many and what size stools you are ordering.

Please read the first post -
You must order at least 2 of whatever size you want.
Ill see what I can do, but Im not sure if the 48cm and 43cm will stack to ship together. I may be asking you for more money later. :wtf:

So quick question. Please correct me if I am missing something. Based on your previous posting 2-3 Stools would be shipped at one time. So a shipment of 6 stools would be 2 shipments. Which would dictate why ordering in groups of 3 would be the best pricewise. Now this new group buy we are able to order different sizes but they need to be ordered as 2 of each size due to the possibility that the different sizes are unable to be stacked together. Not sure if this will workout correctly. Example what happens if someone orders 2 43cm and 4 48cm? Would that potentially be 3 shipments and not 2 and pricing would be different?

Again if I am missing something please correct me as it could just be late and my thinking is not correct this evening.

Youre right - I have no idea if the 43s and 48s will stack together. I assume they will - because theyre either the same size (win) or if one is smaller, put the larger on top - perhaps with some extra padding....? There may even be a third solution. Ill make it all work somehow, but I dont want to encourage it. ;)

No worries. It’s late and just wasn’t sure if I was missing something, tired or misunderstood. Really appreciate you creating these group buys and allowing people to be able to get something that is not easily accessible.

How does the 43cm size fare on smaller cabinets, such as the Sega Aero City? Seems like 43cm is about 2.5cm higher than the classic Japanese Arcade stools.

You could always shorten the legs. The ferrules can be just pulled off.

You're silly. rancor just said he can declare whatever value you want on the customs form. He's selling these as an individual (as opposed to a business), so there won't be any invoice on the carton.

Would that amount to any meaningful change in the height? I'd also then need to find a solution to prevent the legs from damaging my floors... :problem:

You can shorten them as short as you want. After doing so, just put back the original ferrules. As long as you have a good hacksaw, it's like a 10 minute job.
