Here are some pictures of a Stoner 180M candy machine we restored. What made this a 180M was the little window you see on the left that held gum and mints. You would rotate the knob to make your selection and pull then pull the handle to vend. The candy bar section of the machine worked like any other Stoner.
This particular machine was an upgrade from our standard restoration. The Candy lettering you see along the bottom of the machine is cut out of the panel. It was then raised and offset from the cut out. The cut out had glass put behind it and then a rotating multicolored light was put behind it creating a great effect.
The lettering design on the base of the machine may look familiar if you have seen other candy machines on the web. That design originated with Vintage Vending and soon was copied by many others. As with all our restorations the machine was done inside and out and was completely functional.
This item is not for sale. We show restored items in this blog to encourage discussion, prompt questions and further the hobby of collecting and restoration. We also enjoy sharing the photos of the many items we have restored over the years.
