I'm in need of sourcing a complete Taito Canary control panel.
What should I type (in Japanese) to start a search? Can anybody help me?

What are folks experiences of hardware listed as "junk untested"?

Worth a punt at the right price as it's generally working but genuinely untested OR

Junk means junk. Proceed with caution

Yeah I've had a few junk games actually work, but for the most part they are indeed junk.. :(

It depends on the translation really .I would bid cautiously ,and expect it not to work.
A lot of the time depending on what it is it's genuinely untested. Problematic items I'd give a wide birth

Depending on size and weights it can be an expensive gamble.

I took a punt on a "junk" Capcom io.

Reason given for junk status is that there is no environment to test as it's no longer in a game centre.

I decided to take a chance based on the above explanation plus the io is a fairly simple piece of kit so the chances of it going faulty and giving out errors are less likely than a naomi mobo for example.

All in all the cost to get it to my door will be around 50 euro which seems to be a good price assuming it works of course!

It's definitely hit or miss (usually hit more than miss). I've gotten junk item lots where everything works, but there was a time where I got a Ringedge 2 that ended up having a video card that was artifacting.

Just got myself some Sammy tokens. Something to pair with the future AWSD and Tosh cabs I hope to get :D .

Wow, very interesting. Do you have a search term to share so I can look for some myself? Thanks

Unfortunately not, just keep an eye on the arcade section. That's where I find all my stuff.
