Retro & Vintage Jukeboxes
The process actually starts with assembling an expert team of craftsmen and women. Our apprenticeships and training programmes make sure they have all the skills they need to produce the highest quality jukeboxes. Add our in-house research and development team and bespoke production facilities to the mix, and you can see why our machines are a cut above the rest.
Here's how we put your jukebox together...
We begin by inspecting the raw timber, which includes oak, American white ash, beech, maple, birch ply and a range of special woods and veneers. Meanwhile, our electronics team starts assembling the amplifier, processor and other components that make up the heart of your jukebox.
Specialist tools cut the hardwoods to size, the birch ply is cut and any other ply is veneered. Laminates are sent to the press.
In the forming press, the pre-cut ply is layered with material and adhesive to create the distinctive dome shape of the outer cabinet. This unique process produces the single piece Sound Leisure cabinet. Ash ply is prepared in a similar way and goes on to create the front door hoop.
The base frame and door knuckles are crafted from Beech. By now the adhesives have firmly set to create the raw cabinet. Other parts, such as speaker chambers and cash boxes, are pre-assembled.
The door hoop, knuckles and chrome castings are attached to the main door using an assembly jig. Meanwhile, the cabinet is fitted to the base and internal elements – like the mechanism shelf and speaker chambers – are installed.
The door is fitted to the cabinet and the assembled unit undergoes a rigorous inspection. If it passes, the two parts are separated again for staining and polishing.
The door and cabinet are rubbed down and treated with coats of polish. Our team constantly checks the workmanship to make sure the finish meets our high standards.
The cabinet is reassembled and the complete unit is checked again before the build moves on.
