Cigarette vending machine info needed

Postby widget2k4 » Fri Nov 18, 2016 3:35 pm

I've just finished restoring this cigarette vendor and it was one of the hardest challenges I've done and was so time consuming the before picture actually looks better than it was, anyways I've decided to try and find some info on it and wondered if anyone knew anything as I can't seem to find anything about it, I don't think it will be that old because it's on 6d coin, any help would be appreciated,
I know I should of looked for info before I done it but I like the look of it anyway :)
And it's one of the heaviest vendors I've picked up.

Looks like a mighty fine job done there.. I did look at it myself a while back and decided I had too many projects and not enough skill to do it justice. Well done.

Don't know anything about the maker etc I'm afraid...

Soren Wistoft, Danish company, and I'd bet my boots it started life as a vendor for Aspro or something similar. Nice job though Widget.

p.s. are you any relation to Bridget the Midget, the Queen of the blues?
