Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: How in the world did the Fire District end up with a piece of machinery like this? Is there a box/locker full of dies associated with this machine anywhere? When was the last time this machine operated? Has it got a three phase motor? (11/20/20 10:41 AM)
A: Our fire department purchased a building and this was left behind by the previous tenant. The previous owner of the press states that it was in good working order last time it was used. It has been sitting for the last 2 years since we purchased the building. We looked on the motor tag and believe it is a 3 phase, but are not 100 percent sure as much of the markings are worn. As far as I know there are no other pieces/dies that come with the machine, but I will check into that and let you know for sure. (11/24/20 3:30 PM)
Q: 3 phase? (11/23/20 7:54 PM)
A: We looked on the motor tag and believe it is a 3 phase, but are not 100 percent sure as much of the markings are worn. (11/24/20 3:30 PM)
Q: forklift on site to load (11/23/20 7:54 PM)
A: There is no forklift on site. Any moving associated with this press is the buyers responsibility. (11/24/20 3:31 PM)
