    Default Restoring Nishijin Model B

    Just picked up this machine I saw on eBay being sold near me. Wasnít really planning on getting a second machine but I wanted something to tinker with. Canít tell yet if anything is broken but it sure is dirty.

    It's amazing the difference a good cleaning will make. I find that's usually 50-90% of the restore, depending on the condition of the machine.

    The wires for the lights were in pretty bad shape so I replaced most of them and got some new grommets for the sockets. Moved on to the front and removed the door frame to try shining it up the best I can.
