I was first made aware of Robs restoration work when a friend of mine bought a Rock Ola Tempo off him as a result of that I sent both my jukebox’s to him to sort out the mech and amplifiers on them and are now both sounding and working amazing.
After speaking to Rob I bought a Seeburg V200 off Ebay and had him do a full restoration on it and I am over the moon with the job he has done. The pictures on his site do not do it justice and you have to see it in the flesh to really appreciate how stunning the cabinet work is.
To anyone who is looking to buy a jukebox that looks and sounds like it just came out of the showroom I would say they would be hard pushed to find anyone doing a better job than Rob.

“The quality of Rob’s workmanship is beyond reproach. I have owned my 1957 AMI 200 JAH since 1983. My kids have grown up with it and as a family we have had many years of enjoyment from it. However it had stopped working properly and looked rather sad when I spotted Robs website. Following the restoration it now looks and sounds like it has come straight out of a showroom !
Thank you Rob.”

For many years I had wanted a jukebox. My son said to me that I should go for it.
I chanced upon Robin and what a wonderful piece of luck that was.
I am now the proud owner of a beautiful red AMI J200 with Coca Cola design which was lovingly brought back to life by Robin.
Looking at the workings and the chrome, the machine cannot have been any more pristine when it first came out of the store all those years ago.
There is no doubt that Robin’s attention to detail and love for his craft is second to none. Also, in the unlikely event that you have a problem, his after sales service and friendly personality will soon put you at ease.

“I first heard about Robin when I heard his advert on eBay. After our first two telephone conversations, it became obvious that I couldn’t find a better man to look after my precious jukeboxes.
Rob has restored four classic jukeboxes for me now and i couldn't be happier with the quality and craftmanship of his work.
My subsequent experiences proved this to be correct and I cannot express adequately how much I appreciate his attention, good nature and abundant skill.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him to you, whether you need a complete re-build or a simple service of your box.”
The Machines Rob has restored for me are Rock-Ola 403, AY 160, Seeburg 222 and a Ditchburn that i never thought would ever play again. I was wrong.

Having owned various Silverage machines for 30 years, visited shows around the country and Europe, jumped on trains to every part of the UK viewing machines, two things i've learnt in all those years is that this can be a very expensive hobby if you don't find the right restoration engineer but I also know the standard of workmanship that can be achieved, if you do find the right one. After studying Rob's restorations on his website and YouTube, I knew this was the specialist I was looking for.
From first contact, Rob listened to everything I wanted from a ground up restoration. Rob kept me updated on a regular basis from the right machine being sourced in the USA to being delivered to his workshop. Rob provided quality detailed photos on a weekly basis, from the machine in it's original condition, to being stripped to a bare shell then taking me right through every part of the restoration. Rob's knowledge means he does'nt cut any corners and his many years of experience provided advice when needed, ensuring the machine would replicate when new with no hidden costs. By the end of the restoration, I was fully confident that there would be no need to visit and view the machine. Rob also organised professional door to door transportation, taking full responsibility, making sure the machine reached me in perfect condition.
Without a doubt, Rob's Restorations provided the full all round service I'd be looking for this past 30 years
I have bought over the years about a dozen classic Jukeboxes and after having a couple of bad experiences with so called restorers i was getting to the point where i would totally give up trying to find someone that did the work to a high standard.
A couple of well known restorers here in the UK did nothing short of a botched job for high money.
I thought all was lost until a friend recommended me to Rob and he has done everything he said he would do for virtually half the cost of the other so called restorers.
I know now that machines that are restored by Rob and restored to a point where everything was stripped right down to the base and then bit by bit put back together.
Robs work is exceptional. The other restorers was purely about money but with Rob he loves what he does and my god does it show.
Recently Rob has restored a Seeburg VL200 Jukebox for me. It came from the USA in probably the worst state i have ever seen one, but with Robs dedication to detail and his his total love of these great classic machines it looks like it was new straight from the factory.
I would highly recommend Rob to anyone. He certainly is the best around.
Thank you so much for the excellent refurbishment of my Wurlizer 2304s Jukebox. The jukebox now looks great on both the inside and outside. I am over the moon with the attention to detail, it looks to me that every part of the jukebox has been cleaned and reassembled, in fact the inside looks new. I am also massively impressed with the improvement in sound quality, it sounds fantastic now.
It has been an all round massive improvement, I would have no hesitation in recommending you to other jukebox owners, well worth the investment.
Thank you Rob, much appreciated.
