In addition to buying and learning about these fascinating devices, I also enjoy talking to anyone who is willing to listen about them. However, my backlog is currently at 5 years so I am not taking on additional projects at this time. However, I am always on the lookout for anything unique or anything that is a really nice original machine.
If you have a machine and want it restored and are thinking about doing the restoration yourself, then check out the that I am currently working on. I know many reputable dealers and collectors and if you have something that I am not interested in I will put them in touch with you. There is nothing wrong with that because they have to eat, however, since I am not looking at selling the machine for a quick buck, I can almost always pay more than a dealer is willing to pay. I also restore antique slot machines. If you have a machine and want to sell it. If you do have something that is of interest to me then I will usually pay more than a dealer would because a dealer is purchasing the machine with the sole purpose of selling it at a profit. Since space is now at a premium at my house I am pretty selective in what I purchase. One thing led to another, including adding on a 9 car garage to store my machines and I now have a pretty decent collections of machines. If you have a machine and just want to learn a little more about it feel free to. Once I had my new toy I became fascinated with how it worked and with the history behind it.
