We know vast majority of people dont really differentiate the two terms nowadays but there is actually a huge difference between them.
The difference between restore and refurbish is that restore is to reestablish, or bring back into existence while refurbish is to rebuild or replenish with all new material. Restore English, Verb To reestablish, or bring back into existence. To restore to original (or better) working order and appearance. To bring back to a previous condition or state. To give or bring back (that which has been lost or taken).English, Verb To rebuild or replenish with all new material. To rebuild or replenish with all new material Source: wikidiff. Since many people still keep asking questions about whether those items we list are repainted, with new stickers etc, we feel the need to clarify things. All items we list as restored are almost 100% originals , nothing new put on them other than oil & grease, rubber o-rings (tires), rubber / felt feet, and motor / treadle belts, depending on the model. If a part is missing or damaged and we can't repair it, we'll replace it with one from a donor machine of the same era. Never a newer or a new one. Those items are certainly repainted as many think, nor have we put new stickers / decals which would then label them as renovated or "refurbished". Everything was set in the factory back then. Motor sets may have a new plug and leads but coils and internals would be vintage and serviced. Always have in mind the time to restore an item, is many times the time needed to refurbish a same one.
And although it is much, much more time consuming, we prefer this approach which preserves the authenticity and history of an item rather than just making it eye appealing but strip it from it's history and identity. Growing up in Athens, Greece watching the archeologists, since we were kids, painstakingly removing layer after layer of debris and foreign matter from the ancient finds in open dig sites the size of football fields using nothing more than small brushes the size of a toothbrush and small hand tools along with tons and tons of patience and sunscreen may have contributed in our later days attitude towards items of historic significance ;- Or at least we like to think so :.
