Some of you may have heard that I am retiring at the end of the
Holiday season. My son has taken over the Gallery and studio, and I
have some equipment that I no longer need. Because I have received
so many inquiries, I have decided to post the list on Orchid. A lot
of people were looking for tools and equipment for beginners, but
most of this equipment is more suitable to a production shop or
I have a new Handler split lap ($150). I bought this unit for
production work 15 years ago, and only used it a couple of times
before discontinuing my production line. I also have a used split
I have a Raytech Model #10 vibratory tumbler w/ flow-through system
($150). This unit has a 10" bowl, and is great for small production
runs, like 50 rings. It comes with media, steel shot, sieves, and
everything else that I used with this unit. This model does not have
a timer on the flow-thru system.
I also have a rotary tumbler ($100). This unit has the barrel
mounted at a 45 degree angle. It is great for tumbling stones.
I have an Allcraft annealing furnace ($200). You could use this for
small flasks, but I used it for annealing my metals. Far more
precise that torch annealing.
I have a new, never used, Otto Frei bead blast cabinet ($150).
I have a Micro Etcher/ Micro Engraver. This is a miniature pencil
blaster for detailed sand/bead blasting ($250). Like new.
I have a bench shear, for cutting sprues ($60).
I have a Cavillin F-100 wire mill ($300) for rolling ingots prior to
drawing through a draw plate. There are some tiny blemishes on the
rolls, but these do not affect the mill at all.
I have a Highland Park Model 8C cabbing unit. ($850). This unit has
two 8" silicon carbide wheels, a flex-drum for 3" belts, a flannel
buff, and a flat lap on the end. I have a new 180 grit diamond
wheel, two new 600 mesh diamond belts and one 220 mesh diamond belt.
The wheel and belts alone would cost you over $300. I also put a new
lap on the end, with a foam pad. There is also a new leather pad
included. Includes a motor.
I have a Star Diamond Model 10C 10" slab and trim saw, with a new
diamond blade, and precision power feed ($250). Motor included.
I have a Foredom #35 High Speed handpiece, with two diamond
flywheels ($75). If you don't know what this is, you don't need it.
I have a 5 1/2 " bowl stake ($35), and a double-ended spoon stake
($35) for you silversmiths.
And, for all of you that love surprises, I have three boxes full of
rubber molds. All of these are old, with some bordering on antique.
I got these from a shop that I purchased some years ago. I'm sure
there are some treasures in there, but you may have to hunt for
them. There may be e 100 or more molds in there. Make me an offer!
If you are interested in any of this equipment, contact me off-line
or call me. This equipment is being sold on a First Come basis. Some
of this stuff is heavy. I'm not set up to ship things like this, so
it may take a little while before I can get it packed. The Holiday
Rush is upon us, and my job box is full of custom work. If you can
pick it up here in Frederick, MD that's best.
