My name is Bill Darwin II, and my wife Marsi and I
own one of the largest vintage slot machine companies in Michigan.
We BUY-SELL-TRADE-REPAIR and RESTORE vintage MECHANICAL
We do not deal in reproduction, remanufactured or electronic machines.
Collectors are rapidly buying up these machines. We can supply you with a working piece of our great American history, an
investment quality heirloom to pass down to future generations.
Our machines are original, not "remanufactured" or reproduction machines. We try to leave these vintage slots in original
condition whenever possible, using genuine salvaged parts. We do not plate them in chrome or nickel; they are generally polished aluminum and painted as they appeared in their heyday. We stock machines ranging from 100% original needing nothing to machines which have been cleaned, lubed and repainted to fully restored originals.
I've been in the stained glass business since 1973, having learned from my grandfather, the late Roy Darwin of Ann Arbor,
Michigan, as a teenager. After 20 years working 7 days a week on custom stained glass, I started to burn out. I was
encouraged to get a hobby, which turned out to be slot machines, and that in turn has become a second business.
My grandfather was always tinkering and collecting. A tool and die tradesman, he also dealt successfully in player pianos,
model airplanes, and antiques. I recently learned that he had 3 Mills slot machines in his basement that he had restored
back in the 1950's, when he was about the age I am now. So I guess it's just in my blood.
We can usually ship anywhere in the 48 contiguous states, in a shipping drum, fully insured for
$135.00-$200.00 depending on zip code.
Please call 734-475-9730 or e-mail us
with questions and we will reply.
Thanks for looking!
Bill and Marsi Darwin
