Scotsman 747X duplicode (before HPC bought them out)

Anyone know what my Scotsman 747X would be worth?
The HPC scotsman 747XU Duplicode goes for 1197.00 but does pin in pin which this one doesnt.
The regular HPC Scotsman duplicator goes from between 7 and 8 hundred

So I am lost as to what I should ask for it when selling it

Selling this one has been put on hold... I have stripped it completely and am in the process of getting the things together I will need to powder coat it.

The holes circled in yellow are for the screws to hold the motor, the ones circled in black are for little screws to hold the motor up to the correct hight. If I can figure out that hight then I can make a plate to put it and then make a shim plate that I could put in and take out that would allow me to do pin in pin cuts. (EDIT.. After talking to my brother who has been in the vending machine business all his career, he said that he has seen a total of 3 machines that had pin-in-pin tubular locks and that was back in the 90s so i wont be pursuing that)

I think the hardest thing is going to be finding some plexiglass and bending it to the correct shape, well that and figuring out what to do with the motor.... I would love to take it apart to powder coat but I would loose the "Scotsman" sticker

Good to see your back MrPharmer2012, I have had a few questions on your Medeco code setting keys but you were gone for so long.

I have a HPC1200 that can cut Medeco's, I was thinking of drilling small holes in-between the right and left settings so I can cut the inbetween cuts.
Should I use the regular Medeco cutter (very sharp at the bottom of the cut, or would a wider cutter be better to allow the pins to move back and forth freer?

cant for the life of me remember what the other questions were.... pain meds cloud my mind most times

I found the powder I wanted to PC the key machine (well 2nd choice.... I wanted the red with the silver vein but they were out so I chose the black with silver vein) I hope it turns out nice when I coat it... we will see
