Coney Island Boxer Restoration Project – The Beginning

I’ve just purchased my next project from a Playdium auction. It’s a Coney Island Arcade branded boxer machine (sometimes also known as a punchball machine, strength tester, or punch measurer) that, from the auction listing, appears to be in terrible disrepair. Since there is very little repair information on boxer machines available on the internet, I’ll be posting updates on what I’ve done (with pictures + instructions), and a total running cost, as I fix it; piece by piece.

The description of the boxer from the auction was: “Coney Island Boxer – This is being sold for PARTS ONLY! Missing coil, missing bag, bad display, missing mech.” Ouch.

Images from the auction:

Well, the body doesn't look that bad...

The body is in OK condition.

Guess I'll be replacing that.

You know it's a risky buy when the list of problems is longer than the space available on the problem sheet.
