Help Me Identify This Machine


Recommended Posts

I just bought this machine today at a garage sale for $30.  Can anyone tell me who makes this machine?  It says Astro on the chute cover.  Where can I buy a replacement chute cover because this machine is missing one?

I found a place that has a spare candy cute cover for my machine.  It cost me $14.95 for the part.  I now have a fully working double head bulking vending machine for $44.95!

My source for spare parts is:

American Gumball Machine Company

your astro is a fordway program machine; even the blue is specially for fordway distributors;an oak vista door will work fine, which may be ordered form oak mfg. also the slip clutch mechanism handle was mainly used by fordway distributors as well; it is awfully hard to fist slap the sharp point on these versus the typical flats on a oak mech handle. i have bought several old established routes which resulted in me being the owner of 300 +++ oaks of all types........it was a heck of a learning experience as much of it was from the 50&60s era....hope this helps
