vmc 44 restored

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

vmc 44 restored

Postby Drfting1 » Wed Feb 22, 2017 10:07 am

after I finished with the cooler, went looking for another one a little more challenging.... came across this vmc44 from the 50's all the mechanics were locked up, coin mechanism was missing parts, didn't realize the hole inside until I disassembled it.

With as much interest as there is in restored Coke machines, I wouldn't be surprised if there are repro parts and mechanicals available.

oh there are plenty of parts used and repo out there... I just didn't have the spare $$, also wanted to try to keep her as original as possible, so I just disassembled the whole thing, cleaned and repaired each part, only needed a few parts that were missing

more pics... I was extremely lucky someone gave the inside a few coats of silver paint instead of cleaning it, was able to carefully remove the paint and the original galvanized finish was in great shape for its age, so I clear coated over that

The coin unit looks very similar to the ones used in payphones about 25 to 30 years ago.
If you are not part of the solution,
