Best way to find and buy a cheap arcade cabinet?

I'm looking into building my own arcade.
I've heard of people contacting old arcades and buy cheap, broken, arcade cabinets.

Are there any other methods or places to buy cheap arcade cabinets?

Thank you,
Dado

Unless you get lucky and the eBay seller is local, it'd probably cost a boatload to "ship". I might recommend (in addition to craigslist, as well as local arcades), finding an arcade repair shop(s) in the area -- Here in PDX, I know (or at least knew -- assume they're still in business) of at least 3 places that sell / repair arcade machines. Again, these aren't arcades, just places that sell/fix them.

I see them all the time on craiglist. I think one of the local repair shops is posting the ads.

Where are you located? I have one to give away. Asteroids Deluxe, full sized, old style video game cabinet. I'm in Oklahoma -- not far from Tulsa.

Companies that sell or lease Juke Boxes and bar-top Mega Touch usually do arcade machines.

Find some restaurants and bars in your area, look on the machine, there usually is a sticker with contact info.
