Heidelberg Windmill – Up and running

It was an exciting weekend as I finally ran my first job on the Heidelberg Windmill, here are a few beauty shots of the fabulous beast. It is taking a while to get to grips with this fabulous engineering wonder, and will surely be a steep learning curve.

Also notice the rare ray of sunshine streaming through the window.

Heidelberg Windmill

Well it’s been over a year since I obtained this magnificent beast, but it’s operation is still alluding me. Have managed to install a bit of wizardry to turn our single phase supply to 3 phase. Have managed to have the motor rewired since it burnt out, but the final obstacle is sourcing a new starter switch.

But hopefully there is light at the end of the tunnel.

All fingers crossed.

Here are some pics for your enjoyment

Studio nearly there

The studio is now painted and water tight and damp-proof, the Heidelberg and Golding Pearl are back in, all we need to do is clean-up and wire-up the Heidelberg and we are away. Bring on 2012
