Re: Wrigleys PK vintage vending machine

You probably wouldn't notice it if it was high enough on the wall, and depending on your height :D but I like to try and put faults right if it is possible, after all we are caretakers for these machines.

Re: Wrigleys pk vintage vending machine

I think it will straighten out ok as well treefrog, I could get hold of the correct hammers and striking back plates and do a half decent job on it, it's just the sides which concern me, so better to take to a specialist on this occasion.

Wrigleys PK vintage vending machine

A couple of weeks ago I was the highest bidder on this vintage Wrigleys PK vending machine through Amersham Auction Rooms. Well what a dissapointment it was. This was the first time I had bought from an auction house. On receiving the machine, I find the top of the machine had been forced back as so...

Re: Wrigleys pk gum vending machine

The camera that I am using isn't taking the sharpest of pictures at the moment, so I think that is the best image that I can get. Are you looking to get the image made for your machine? I have seen some adverts for OK gum that show a clearer image. I wouldn't say the print of the gum picture on my m...

Re: Wrigleys pk gum vending machine

Re: Auction today

Some great looking machines on sale there, I have to say, if it wasn't for the internet I wouldn't have the vintage vending machines I have now, after visiting multiple antique shops, all I would have have amassed so far would be a vintage condom and tampax machine :dammit: I have not been to a spec...

Re: Oh Boy Gum vending machine

Can't seem to fathom how the coin mech works. Not pulling all the way out at the moment. I thought the three holes at the front were for coins at first, but these are not big enough to sit a half penny, so must be for putting your fingers in to push up the gum to release it?

Re: Oh Boy Gum vending machine

Thanks, I hadn't heard of plus gas before, I might try some, with wd 40 if you don't wipe it off, it can go into a hard to remove residue as I found out when I sprayed a lot on my motorbike one winter. One of the screws had to be drilled out as it was so rusty, it is a good idea to put a lot of mask...
