Finally found a moulder
« on: January 29, 2017, 11:32 AM »
After having to sell my nice Weinig P22 with accuset heads about a year ago, I have been trying to find another machine.

While I will miss the digital set, this machine would eat the p22.

Got to pick it up tomorrow and then have to figure out how to unload it. 

Wadkin GA 6 head with a 7th Universal head. 

At low voltage it draws 235 amps!!

That's an absolute monster [eek]

A 235amp current draw would probably black out my neighborhood !!! I'd love to see it in action. Looks to be in pretty fair condition too.

Huzzah!  I want some pictures of that beast running once you get it cleaned up and ready to go.  Looks like it could eat Godzilla!

It just looks so intimidating that the molding makes itself before the machine can get hold of it.

I will have to take some current ones. Stuff changes constantly in there between selling machinery, rebuilding stuff for customers and working my way towards just production parts work. 

The RAS is a Danckeart, Belgium made.
I seem to have a thing for RAS.

Caught the guy around the corner from me that has a 8448 Lull, he said sure, how's 50 bucks sound?

Moulder is in its permanent location, 100 feet of 2" EMT run, 125a breaker found, wire pulled and machine is hooked up.

I have an issue with top head starter, does not want to pull in very well.

Two spindles will need bearings soon. 

Have to hustle, 6k feet of material to run in 3 weeks.

Cool! Did you get a bunch of tooling with that thing or do you have to fork out some more loot?

I got about 10 heads, plus all the steel and rubber feed rollers.

I am buying an insert head for the first bottom and first inside head (the two used for straightening).
