I was a dentist in my "other life", but I often got sidetracked casting jewelry instead of crowns and bridges. I was the only dentist I knew who had a Thermatrol (Jelenko electric casting machine) in my office, and I cast all my post and cores. I occasionally cast a crown or a bridge for a patient in a hurry who couldn't wait for the laboratory processing. I stopped chairside practice in 1986 due to osteoarthritis which affected my manual dexterity. Now, all these years later, I started making jewelry again. My dexterity hasn't improved but that's not an issue as long as there is no living tissue in the path of my handpiece! Today I learned about the PUK 2 arc welding system and I believe it is the perfect addition to my limited outfitting for what I do. It was suggested to me that I come here in the hope that someone out there may have one of these machines that he/she will be turning in on a terminated lease. My hope is to puchase that lightly used machine at a more reasonable price (like 50% discount) from the brand new PUK 2 MSRP of $3.5k and up. Anyone out there have a PUK 2 on a lease that is ending? If you are turning it in with all your leased equipment so you can again get all new equipment on your next lease, I want to take it from you before you give it back to the company. Now all I need to do is find a way to make this happen. SUGGESTIONS? All are welcome!
