Here is the project
It's a 1947 Stoner Univendor Model "Junior" 102
It holds, you guessed it , 102 candy products to vend, 17 in each stack
This is how it was presented.
However it turned out to be completely dis-assembled.

Because the base and machine were put together with finger tight bolts it arrived with some additional  issues becasue they seperated in transit!
