  1. Nice collection. You have an unusual machine - a Vendo 39 with a Selectavend conversion. Changed a single flavor drum machine to a slant shelf multi-flavor vendor. Don't see many of those. Really ...
  2. Really nice looking machine. Saw the question about the bottle door and yours is original. The 56 came with 2 different door styles, one solid and one with glass. The solid door is actually more co...
  3. Cool room. I only have one old pole, but really like it. Your collection is great, love the old original globes. I have the wind up motor for my pole, but the spring has failed. Do you happen to k...
  4. Mickey, Looks like you know your vintage barber poles. Great looking pieces
  5. Bernie, Very nice looking machine. Love that the white was in good enough shape to keep original. I am personally a fan of the 10 cent decal. Not so much on the Sprite boy or the "coke in the hand...
  6. Picking, I would love for your estimate to be even remotely in the ballpark. I only paid $200 for this one and the reporcelain estimate is about $400. Would love to have it restored, but would defi...
  7. Would love to find one of these some day - great looking machine. How hard are they to restore?
  8. Thanks again, Popcorn. These machines are really amazing. Works of art on the outside and engineering marvels on the inside. Just so much more than their modern day counterparts. I like to watch i...
  9. Bernie, First off, congatulations on a really nice and clean V80. If you need any replacement decals or pricing stickers, you can find them at SodaJerkWorks.com or Fun-tronicsllc.com. Both sites ar...
  10. The coin mechs are out there but I have never really felt like I needed one. It operates on free play and that is how I would set it up anyway. If I came across one I would probably get it just for ...
  11. Well thats just freakin' cool. Are those the original graphics. If so, they look to be in unbelievable condition
  12. Should have asked this when I first posted, but does anyone have any idea on a rough value for a barber pole like this? I have searched around quite a bit and have never seen one quite like it. I d...
  13. Picking, Thanks for the comment. At the rate I get one done, I don't think anyone would want me to take on their machine! I did see the 39 on your page, it looks pretty good as it is. How is the...
  14. Scott, Now is a good time to look for one as prices on jukes, along with most collectibles, are down from their heyday. I love this machine and have never regretted purchasing it. Get one and you...
  15. Hi Pickr, Thanks for the comment. I am actually pretty old school myself. I suspect TGBWC and I would tend to agree more than disagree on things, and I have no issue with his thought on decals. ...
  16. Signaholic, You have some great stuff. I love the old signs but don't know enough about them to feel comfortable knowing if they are original or reproductions. One of the best things about getting ...
  17. EJW, The only paint is on the outside of the cabinet. All of the interior is either re-zinc plated (mostly in the bottle mech) or powder coated (faceplate, tub and shelving). Hoping that the powder...
  18. No, the original did not have the 10 cent decal, it is there now because I like the looks of it. I have seen untouched machines that have 5cent, 6cent, or 10 cent decals though. Often they had the S...
