All the machines within the Gates Collection are kept in as original condition as possible to maintain an authentic representation of the machines as they would have appeared when in use.
We undertake minimal light restoration and preservation to ensure the machines can be appreciated and will not deteriorate.
Restoration would usually entail cleaning and sympathetic polishing and de-rusting.
Some repairs are undertaken to base tables, cases and machines when required due to age related damage or breakage.
All machines are maintained in working condition and oiled accordingly.
