Here are some examples of repairs that have been made.
MUSIC PLAYER UPGRADE
This automata of a cowbay singing and playing his guitar used an old Sony Walkman that played music when 10p was inserted. The client purchased this at auction and wanted the music to play again as this was a gift for her husband.
WORM SCREW UPGRADE
This is on display at the MAD Museum and has been motorised to avoid damge. However due to it running contiuosly the wire worm screw needed strengthening...
THE OWL & PUSSYCAT
A Tim & Vicki Wood Automata from the Quest Collection "The Owl & Pussycat" No. 9 of 25. I was asked to repair damage to the automata, top of the trees was missing, the mast was snapped, and very dirty. The belt drive system was temperamental so it was replaced with a chain drive.
