Vending Machine Restoration

Portland Public Library | 2022-2023

Ever heard of Art-O-Mats? Well PPL had an idea that we could host a similar vending machine for community non-profits in our space. A quick Craigslist search, and I was on my way to Pownal, ME to pick up a 1966 Fawn Fleetwood cigarette machine that probably hadn’t been touched since the 80s. I tapped the lock, opened it up, and got to work. I carefully disassembled the machine, cleaned and lubricated the parts, and gave it a PPL makeover. There were a couple of customizations that I had to make, but overall, this was a full restore with a great outcome! Check it out at 5 Monument Sq. in Portland, ME!
