DONT CALL THE SCRAP MAN YET!!!
Thats all valuable stuff.
It all aught to go to someone that wants to do minting. The dies
alone are worth thousands of dollars. Then theres the press tools to
go with them.
fly presses etc are so useful.
A die making machine ie a 3d die sinking Alexander, or Talor Hobson
or Deckel are also worth thousands.
Just try and buy one.
Big tools like this are the key to making stuff you cant do at a
bench with hand tools.
I bought just a setup in 1987 here in the UK. I paid scrap price
plus 10% but with the promise id use it all.
The old chap wasnt well, he didnt see the outcome of my
investment.He died 6 months later.
It opens the door to making things you cant do any other way. To give
you just one example, The die striking machine I bought I made fully
transportable. In 1989 I took it to the Great Dorset Steam fair,
attendance some 30,000 people.
I minted on site 1000 plaques over 5 days for the event., Sold off
the hammer. they were queing up for them.
Almost a licence to print money.
With this tooling ive here, I also make buttons brooches, buckles. Rings
pendants. All die struck, blanked and also enamelled, coins medals and
Id like to see pictures of the machines. Happy to advise any one
interested in these tools. Pay my travelling and ill be there!!.
