Looks like a National 6-column vendor to me...that's about all I could tell you about it.

Mid to late 50s ... close to a Stoner machine... It's missing its base which would bring it to about
5-6' tall..... cool looking. See if he has the base.
Good Luck

Getting back to your question Dave. That looks like a nice complete machine.
       Yes it has a lot in common with the stoner but I think this larger bottom section looks even better. A base for it can easily be made.
        Buy-it-now is reasonable, and no overseas shipping costs.

Hi Chaps

went to see the machine today.Its a bit batter and bruised and after a bit of a struggle I managed
to get the front door off. It would appear that the vending mech is NOT complete. The columns are there but whatever gate system there was to stop the bar droping through has been removed.

How easy is it to obtasin parts for this machine?? Anyone have a picture of what the complete vending mech looks like so I can gauge what's missing. Are decals etc easily and reasonable available??

The machine ran its time on Ebay with no bids. I offered him £60.00 but he wants his £100.00 (Just double for dollars) So don't know what to do. Hearts says grab it. Head says use your money for the V-56. Wife just gives a look of disgust.

Help Me guys... I'm addicted.

I'd say pass.... Wait and save for Dole parts and restore your 56.
That is missing pieces I've not seen and a base.... So unless he drops the price way down.
Wait for something better. The way your luck is running here lately a Stoner Jr will fall in
your yard anyway '<img'>

Okay now promise not to tell mey wife, but I was over at my parents today and the seller of the Candy Machine is only 2 miles down the road. Guess what, I went to have a look and bought it. £60.00 I thought that was good. Its currently sitting in the car waiting for the Mrs to go to work before I can hide it under a blanket in my garage.

Its missing its base but the seller has given me details of someone who could repro one at a reasonable price.

I took some pictures of the inside because there seems to be bits missing from the mech. Does anyone have these missing pieces or know where I could get hold of them.

I've just done a search on ebay and found this
 http://cgi.ebay.com/THE-OLD....iewItem

Looks like I am missing quite a bit. Mine is six instead of the nine in the auction. I'm sure someone here was parting out a National Vender a while ago.
