    Stoner candy machine restoration

    Imported this machine from the USA I was lucky for it to hitch a ride in a container heading to Canberra.
    It's a Stoner 8 pull with gum vendor its serial number shows it is a 1950s model.
    Candy bars are placed on each shelf with every 5th shelf red to help the vendor easily count how many bars have been sold.
    This particular model comes with a gum vendor with 4 merchandise chutes that can hold four different varieties of gum or mints.
    Different flavours are selected by turning the selector knob until the gum/mint that you want shows in the window.
    This model also has a coin changer mechanism which will give a nickel in change when a dime is inserted.
    Hope you enjoy the restoration I'm sure I'll need some help or advice along the way.20181222_193443.jpg20181222_140019.jpg20181226_140112.jpg

    Tear down involved removing the internals and complete disassembly.
    At sometime someone has tried to lever there way into the machine.

    A few more pictures of the internal rack prior to dismantling.

    Tear down of the rack, so many moving parts.
    Really is a work of art.20190119_152447.jpg20190123_131556.jpg20190123_154049.jpg20190129_104317.jpg

    After advice from a few powder coaters I had most of the internals chemically cleaned to remove the paint and then powder coated.
    Advised against blasting as heat could warp some of the thinner parts.20190225_182929.jpg20190225_143642.jpg20190225_193812.jpg20190123_131556.jpg

    yer thats good advice, Definitely would have been a bad idea blasting that.
    It doesn't look rusty in the picture so chem stripping made a tonne of sense

    you gonna use Enamel hammer-tone for the main body? Might look a bit nicer and closer to original than Power coat on the outside IMO
    The green Enamel hamertone is getting hard to find In Australia, it used tobe every where but allot of Brands have deleted the colour from their range.
    I had a bit of trouble finding some for my restorations, But I did find some that was sitting on a shelf in a paint store for a few years, so if you get stuck I do have a few Liters
    Or are you doing a hotrod?

    Jason, I'm not looking at going original colour with the main body, I'm looking at going 2pac automotive paint.
    Concentrating on reassembly of the rack whilst I can still sort of remember how.
