Here is my restoration, finally finished!
its all done now (at last)
I put some trinkets in so my son could demonstrate how he could win his mum a mother day gift!
A few pieces left over , as follows:-
I have some repro corner piece rosettes left over as well as some extra starburst castings (lower door, both sides) and LH side cash door trim i had made.
On the upper side prize loading doors I have one complete Repro lock protector set (inner and outer casting) and one ORIGINAL inner casting
I also have a spare boom locator gear and assembly (original) that needs minor repair for sale.
I wont be restoring anymore Buckley's due to high costs of plating trim and ageing pot metal parts.
Now its done, though, I have to say they look a $ million $$$!

The before pictures as sent from California 2010.
I must of been off my Nut to attempt this resto, but I love the Art Deco look of this crane and I am always up for really big challenge when it comes to coin op.
This beast was never anything but.

Hi Mario
yes that is a beautiful find, where did you find it, was it in Italy??
Looks all original timber someone has taken a good deal of time with the restoration.
Is there any chance you could post pictures of inside the doors to see the locator mechanism, does it have the original cash box.
This machine looks fantastico!!
