1957 Genco Grandma Horoscope and Fortune Teller

Postby hur13y » Fri Nov 20, 2020 9:35 am

Looking for parts to refurbish a 1957 Grandma Horoscope and Fortune Teller machine I just inherited. This would include any service manuals or fortune cards and rolls as well. Canopy has damage, Grandma has damage, not sure on internal issues yet.

Congrats on acquiring the machine! These are fun.
Feel free to email and we can connect on parts / repairs.
I've restored / gone through a handful of these over the years and have some NOS rolls (in original Mike Munves boxes!) and fortune cards.
I also got fabric made to accurately replicate the original Grandma dresses.
happy to help-
John

Once I get the machine on site I’ll take some pics and post them...and start asking lots of questions about how to get it refurbished and running like new.

Got some pre shipping photos. It actually looks better than I was expecting outside of the canopy and some of the glass art that will need replacement. Unfortunately there are no keys so I’ll have to drill the locks and replace and figure out why it doesn’t run.

Do NOT drill the locks!

Take it to any locksmith, and they'll pick the locks and make keys for you. That's what I've done with my machines that I didn't get keys with, and they've never failed to be able to do it yet.

Thanks for the suggestion MikeB. I’ll see if I can get a mobile locksmith to come out as I don’t have a truck to take it in a service call.

Look on YouTube on how to pick locks. Usually not to difficult.
Locks just keep honest people out.
