Restoration Gumball Machine Stahlberg 1980s

  • Published on Mar 21, 2023 veröffentlicht
  • A very old and broken gumball machine restoartion. I bought the gumball machine on ebay for 15€. The machine stood for years by the sea on the North Sea in Germany. The plastic container was burned. The color was already chipping.
    I have restored the complete gumball machine. Even the smallest parts have been machined. What I have done. Metal parts powder-coated, ground, filled, polished, machined on the lathe, nickel-plated. Parts that were missing were made new. It was a lot of work to recreate the gumball machine. But it was worth it, the result looks fantastic.
    My new lathe from Paulimot

    I used this lathe in the video
    The best threading dies in Germany.

    It can't often be said, that this was a phenomenal restoration. There are so many people on Clip-Share who have no idea what they're doing, this was absolutely magic. And so very well done. Probably my 4th or 5th time watching it it's a real pleasure to see somebody who's a master at work.

  • Mike Nelson

    That's a fantastic job of restoration you did on the machine, especially with the red paint! It brings back memories for me! Practically every week for 20 years I was doing something like this - usually just cleaning them. I had a Vending Machine route of similar machines, Norwest Model 60, with either the same plastic globe or a glass globe. My machines had a removable product chute on them, and on top was a keylock rather than the more basic screw lock top you designed, that's what the ridges inside the top cover lock depression are for.

    Dang, who knows what kind of things it went through sitting by the sea for decades. Good job at restoring it back into it's former condition. Though it's a shame the burn on the old container pretty much led to that part being replaced in the end.

    I believe this is a Brabo machine (Belgian, made in ANtwerp, named after the famous Brabo legend). This machine is from the 70's, on later models plastic was more used instead of metal for some parts. The "screw"on top was originally a lock screw, so you could only unscrew it with a key.These machined used to be in supermarkets. I have the quad version of it, on a stand. Nice restauration !

      @MW Restoration thank you. In fact, it is a child trauma :) My mum never allowed me nor my siblings any of those chewing gums or little toys, so when I was around 45 (I’m born in 1973), I bought a quadruple machine to make up for that trauma :) Sadly my mum had passed away already by then.
