Packaging and wrapping products for shipment.

Since these restored machines have fresh paint and in some cases have to travel 1,000+ miles to its destination, I have had inquiries about packaging options. I came up with a successful system that involves wrapping the machine in a blanket of felt, adding cardboard corner braces along the wood cabinet corners, adding the same cardboard braces down the outside of the metal legs, adding the corner brace to the front coin slot & plunger area, then stretch wrapping around the cabinet, head and legs to secure everything in place and finally place a large decal on each side of the cabinet that boldly states “Please Use Care – Glass Top”.

All in all it takes two people about two hours to do it correctly
