    Seeburg 222 restoration

    Guys

    New project, I have just imported a 1958 Seeburg 222 jukebox to restore.
    This jukebox plays 160 selections and I believe was the first stereo jukebox.
    It arrived yesterday and I hooked in today tearing it down.
    I have new sideglasses as well as a new 50Hz gear .
    I am on a big learning curve here as this machine needs a lot of work Amp and selector need rebuilding and god knows what else.
    All help is appreciated
    A few photos attached.

ID:	1808481A quick update frame has been patched with fiberglass filler and sanded smooth ready for painting.
                Anyone have any good scans of the interior paperwork?
                Removing the anti theft screw from the cash box was a bitch but got there with the use of a dremel
                I have purchased a as new 500W stepdown isolation transformer and still compiling a list of parts required.
                Slow and steady but getting there.
                Hopefully have the box painted in the next few weeks.

                    Quick update on what progress has been made, selector has been dismantled cleaned and reassembled after the case had been primed/painted.
                    Keyboard has been dismantled and keys polished, I'm yet to decide whether to bleach/whiten the keys.
                    I kinda like the vintage look.

                              Haven't updated the thread for a while, progressing well on the jukebox all aluminium extrusions have had scratches removed and polished out.
                              Back and top cover plates panel beated and re sprayed then reinstalled very happy with the results.
                              New speaker cloth has been installed and new side glasses installed it's really starting to come together and once again look like a jukebox.
                              There was a time when you could purchase wireless remote volume and record reject add on control boxes from the USA.
                              I tracked down the guy who made them and he had no plans to make more of them, when all else fails ask google.
                              Found a site where a guy made exactly what I wanted using Arduino, bought all the parts only to find that as parts had been superseded since the original build the code he wrote was no longer suitable.
                              So I then spent two days learning how to code, it uses a stepper motor turning a remote pot, this will connect in the remote volume control input.
                              Original build had one digital output to a relay for the record reject, I used a dual relay so I could use one relay to switch to an iPod input at a later date.
                              Has a software clutch so the torque generated is not enough to damage the pot at either end of travel.
                              Mounted on a piece of Perspex it looks the goods.
                              Should recieve parts back from chromers soon so should be able to push forward with the restoration.
                              Two Perspex channel signs have had scratches polished out using 800 and the 1200 wet paper then polished.
                              Faded paint was removed ready for airbrushing.
