Caille Brothers Company

Detroit, MI

Do you have an antique Caille Brothers slot machine in need of restoration or repair? Nation’s Attic specializes in factory correct world class restoration of slot machines made by this company. Give us a call at 316- 371-1828 or email  Starting in 1888 the Caille Brother Company would invent and produce a large number of coin operated devices. Among these products were some of the very first slot machines. During the 19th Century and into the early 20th Century, Caille would be one of the largest manufacturers of slot machines. Caille slot machines would be regarded as some of the finest made during this early period of slot production. At the turn of the 20th Century Caille was inventing some very unique slot machines. These machines today are very collectible and well worth restoring! During the 1920’s Caille was still making high quality slot machines but their sales were starting to slip compared to competitors. Just as the Golden Age of slot machines was starting (1932) Caille slot machines were playing catch-up in terms of external and internal design. By the late 1930’s Caille stopped production of slot machines altogether. So what kind of work goes into a full restoration? As the United States premiere company for the restoration of these slot machines we take our work very seriously. Each machine is carefully restored on an individual basis. When your machine arrives in our shop the first thing we do is take a full set of high resolution photos of it. This allows us to fully document the machines condition, unique features and serial number before the work is started. Next a detailed set of notes are taken about the machine along with discussing any final restoration details with you the owner. When restoration begins every aspect of the slot machines cabinet inside and out is taken apart and individually restored. Parts such as the main castings are cleaned, polished and then painted by hand as they were originally. The wood cabinet is taken apart, refinished professionally here in our shop. Trim parts such as handles and bolts are either polished or chrome plated. Back doors are cleaned and repainted, locks serviced, new glass cut, new award cards installed. There is no detail that isn’t overlooked. Internally the various mechanisms are given a full tune- up with proper critical part cleaning and lubrication. Depending on the need, we can also take the mechanism 100% apart and media blast every single part as well. Either option will result in the machine being fully tested to ensure it will work correctly just like the day it was made! Once we are finished your slot machine is then re- photographed. We put the entire before & after photo package on a CD-ROM and send that to you. We also include a brief historical report that includes an appraisal value for insurance purposes. No other company provides this kind of world class service both before or after the work is completed. Call us today at 316-371-1828 or email . We are more than happy to provide you with a restoration quote for your machine within minutes!
