Happy Anniversary! National Cash Register Restoration

My husband and I are celebrating our fourth wedding anniversary tomorrow. Yay! To celebrate, we bought a 1926 model 717 National Cash Register to restore. This baby is looking rough to say the least! 

This ugly duckling will be looking good as new in no time! At least that's the plan. We are still trying to figure out if we would rather restore it back to its original condition or turn it into something pretty and fun that would look great in a soda shop or ice cream parlor. Hmm... I'll post more as we go. Until then, enjoy this adorable pic of my son helping daddy tinker with it.

  1. I got my hands on a rough one once, just for the price fags and keys. Those things are a pain to take apart. Definitely built to last:)

    Should be a fun project.
