Coin Operated Hot Nut Machine, Pull Chain
This polished aluminum Coin Operated Pull Chain Hot Nut Machine was made in 1920-30's. It was made by Roy Stringer Co. LTD in San Marino, Ca. This unusual machine is not like you see everyday. It operates on a dime, when inserted, you pull the red ring attached to a chain to release the hot nuts. The machine stands 23" tall, the globe is 11.5" tall. Below the globe is the heating unit which has a chute that the nuts flow thru when the chain is pulled, the heating unit is encased in aluminum and rests on three columns attached to the base where the coins drop. The top has a place for a small padlock. There is a light in the heating section that lights up. The machine is 110 Volts, 25 Watts, and on the back mid section there is #8997. There is no original decal, but the globe has been hand painted that says "Hot Nuts 10C", the words are outlined in black and the center is gold leaf. There is an arrow that points to the coin slot, also gold leaf. The rest of the machine is all original. The globe is in perfect condition, the machine is as close to perfect as something that is over 75 years old. The photos will tell the story. This is a beautiful machine, and would be the center of attention to any collection. Take a moment and look at my other items. Thank you for viewing.
