We ran this 16" machine for 12 years in our reclaimed flooring mill.
It came out of a fruit crate manufacturer in Oregon in 2003.
Pacific Fruit Express Company, Roseville, CA took delivery in Jannuary 1957.
We rebuilt it and put it into service for running super wide flooring.
It did a fine job at far less $$ than a Weinig.
It cost us somewhere around $15,000 to rebuild - cheap!
After we put it into production we started collecting every 16" machine we could find.
Only one, in Texas, got away.
When we closed our factory in 2015 we got $4,500 for the moulder at auction.
It went to a large production mill in California.
They knew exactly what they were buying and were glad to find one at a very fair price.
These machines are real workhorses.
