Our Museum

Here's a look at our ever growing collection! We're up to a little more than 500 different machines!. Once they're all up, we'll add new ones as they come in. The serial number of each machine, when available, is after the machines name.

Some of these machines are on the other pages of our site with descriptions. These are denoted with an asterisk. To return to the main page where you can access the other pages, click here. After viewing a picture, use your browsers 'back' button to return to this list. Select machines on the other pages also have video to show you how they work! These are noted here with 'video' in italics. The videos are in Real Movie format so you'll need a RealPlayer to play them. The player is free and can be downloaded from Real.com . Dates noted after machines are "circa" and represent our best approximation with the information we have at hand. If you have information that will help us correct any of these dates, please let us know!

Lastly, if you were thinking of offering us a machine but you see it on this list, don't let that stop you! Your machine may be an upgrade for the one we have or it could even be slightly different! Duplicates are always welcomed anyway as they're good for trading with other collectors for machines we may not have yet... and there are PLENTY of those! Thank you to our fellow collectors, relatives, dealers, pickers and everyone else who has helped us so far- we couldn't have done it without you!

Please remember that images and descriptions appearing on these pages may not be downloaded or used elsewhere without permission. Last time we added to the museum was 8/01/04.
