Well after two months of reasearch the Eclipse Pro is here from Atlanta.
Now the fun begins. The unit was just plain grungy and poorly maintained.
The entire machine will need to be taken apart, all the components cleaned and the wear items replaced with new. $1,600 in new parts and about two weeks work.
This is how you get a $32,000 machine for about $7,000, sweat equity.
Just plain grungy, incorrect lubrication, dirt, sawdust? = a lot of work
Yes that is rust. Not something you want brand new bearing to have to run across.
Yes, that is the same rod, I can live with that. And more importantly, the new bearings can.
Before and after, a bit of an improvement.
Stripped down to the table and tracks. Ready to clean and reassemble.
Slotting the rod for the air cylinder for a screwdriver
Now the hold down clamps can be installed and removed or adjusted from the top of the machine, huge time saver
All cleaned, rebuilt, calibrated and cutting mat boards. It really does make the Wizard look like a toy. Still having to learn the new computer program.......
The Eclipse all rebuilt and in it's new home
The Eclipse was to big to go in through the back so a new doorway had to be cut and framed and a new French door installed
The new and the old
I have seen the future, and it is more shelving for the metal molding
And let there be (more) light.
Still to come more flat file cabinets
The largest vacuum press in the state at
48" X 96"
I don't know how many times over the years I've needed to mill, turn or thread something.
Now I can without having to beg a favor or pay a machinist.
