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.
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.
Currently in the process of refurbishing our Garage and turning it into a lovely clean and warm home for our letterpress, hopefully we will be finished very soon and can crack-on, and start producing some lovely work again. Just to tide you over here our some pics of our rather large new edition soon to be installed and hopefully operational.
