    Sorry if this is a repeated question. I acquired a 1935 Exhibit Gateway. I have not found a lot of data on this machine, as such I am wondering what archival information I should be collecting? I am recording serial numbers and pictures to upload to ipdb.org etc. Are there other things that should noted or cataloged?

    I will note this machine is in very rough shape, or I would be a lot more worried about having what I believe is a rare machine. The legs are water damaged and split, the table is oddly in decent shape. The cabinet made a nice home for mice for many years. I'm pretty sure it will be a complete tear down/rebuild. So far its been a lot of rust removal, disinfecting and figuring out how the mechanics work, which has been fun.
