 If you are looking for a particular machine please ask as machines have been coming in -

however, I have been selling them before I can list them on this website.

         If you are looking for a fair deal to BUY an antique slot machine, you have come to the right place.
Most of our time is spent 
RESTORING machines for collectors and clients who have a sentimental attachment to an antique slot machine.


            Do you have an old slot machine you'd like to SELL? If you are serious about selling please e-mail us or call 734.475.9730 with a description of your pre-1950's machine. Since you found our website it means you've done your homework. We are interested in your single slot machine or an entire collection. How can you tell if your machine is pre-1951? Slots made before 1951 did not have lighted or plastic fronts, except for the Jennings Sun Chief models. They were metal and wood, not electronic. Most of the slot machines from the 1890's to 1940's were made by only a few manufacturers: Jennings, Mills, Pace, Watling, Caille and Superior.

                                When you call or e-mail please provide the following information:

  • Manufacturer of your machine?

  • Is it in working condition?

  • What coin does it take? (nickel, dime, etc.)

  • Are there any broken or missing parts?



Restoration is my main business!
Check out a few of examples below:


1933 Superior Confections Gold Award Vendor
Before restoration


Serial # 838. This was a recent restoration for a client. These are not common machines, in fact they seldom ever show up for sale. When received the mint vendor and gold award were disabled and many parts were missing. There was no awards card or awards card frame.


1933 Superior Confections Gold Award Ven

1933 Superior Confections Gold Award Vendor
After restoration


Serial # 838. After fabricating an awards card frame and manipulating the awards card to fit the frame this turned out to be an awesome machine. We had to make parts and linkage that were missing to get the mint vendor and gold award dispenser to operate properly. Everything works just as it should including the alternating twin jackpots.

1936 Watling Gold Award Vender

1936 Watling Rol-A-Top Gold Award Vendor
Before restoration


Serial # 70334. Nice original 5 cent machine. This machine was purchased by a fellow who bought it out of an airplane hanger back in 1962 and was stored as it is pictured until I bought it. There were gold award and vendor parts missing at that time. As you can see it had several coats of paint slapped on.

I get asked all the time if I watch American Pickers, Pawn Stars, American Restorations and the rest of the "reality shows" and of course I do; I actually participated in a local show, Hardcore Pawn, and when doing so I really found out how these shows are "made for TV" and they do make great television and these guys are all now super stars but honestly what I do here at my little shop out in the country is the real deal. I don't have a whole crew of people working here, I am just a hard working guy who loves what I do.
Along with buying and selling machines I offer restoration and repair.
If you have a vintage mechanical machine that is not working I can repair it for you.
If you have a vintage machine that is tired but looks good I can restore it mechanically.
If you have a machine that works good but is simply faded and ugly I can do a cosmetic restoration including wood, polish and paint.
If you have a basket case I can take care of that as well.

Below are a few more examples of my work.

This 1939 Mills Diamond Front was the only thing salvaged from a whole house fire.


This is the before and after of a 1932 Roman Head. 


I restored this nickel, dime, quarter and half dollar set

of Black Cherry machines for one of my clients.


Bill was featured in television's DESTINATION MICHIGAN with Bob Garner on WCMU Public Television with his antique slot machines in 2011. Later the TV crew came back to film a segment on the Waterloo Croquet Club, which aired in June 2012. Bill also appeared with his slot machines on a "Hardcore Pawn" TV episode in 2010. "Around Town with Linda", produced by Chris and Linda Meloche of Chelsea, did a show on Bill and his work as well. Archived DVDs may be borrowed from Chelsea's McKune Library.
