This project was donated to the group as it was found on Craigslist, acquired by Claudio & Joe. It was originally in a restaurant, bought by another party, appears to have had some work done on it, and was not working when we first examined it. Sonny was able to isolate an issue with a prom that was not acting correctly and borrowed a replacement part. The borrowed replacement part made the machine operable but the video needs some further tweaking.
