Welcome to my web site. I've been a full time restorer since 1973. I'm still buying Paces Races and other horse race machines, as well as nickelodeons and coin-operated gambling machines. I am also buying piano rolls and jukeboxes. I'm not taking on work at this time. I'll be glad to help you in any way I can with your old mechanical collectible. Advise is free! Email Paul at:


These pages are devoted to collectors who enjoy viewing interior mechanics of automatic music, coin operated arcade and gambling machines.      

I have restored almost 500 automatic pianos and dozens of coin operated gambling machines.  I'm not taking on work at this time.

For the hobbyist, I offer my extensive "Guide to Restoring the Ampico A". Click on the tab "Ampico A Guide" and I will take you step by step through the process of restoring the Ampico A. In the guide I share useful techniques applicable to all player restorations. 

Click on "Restorations" and have fun exploring photos of the various machines. You are welcome to email me with questions about restoring your own machines you may be working on.
