I know where there's a panto machine available for sale..........................

Probably very cheaply too.

A definition of 'very cheaply' would be of some help.

I think it may be an AEI cross-arm type (although the photo is marked Vulcan Foundry and I'm sure the Class 83 locos they built used Faiveley pantographs).

LOL :):):)

Well done panto IS quite nice I have to say. Must have been the advertising of those days, instead of flashy graphics. I went a bit nuts and got some panto stuff for my Ciocc. Now the whole world cannot miss the brand. I am a free advertising billboard! ;)

Is the machine still operational as a pantograph machine?

From what you infer, a CNC could be used to panto parts - is that correct?

Richard




Yes, Richard that is correct,pantographs were used for reproducing a shape from a master patten, with engraved names on bike parts many parts can be reproduced from one master, we haven't used it for tooling for about 20 years. All that kind of work is now done on our CNC machines, as can the work on cycle parts be done on CNC in a fraction of the time it would take with the pantograph, our machine is still in perfect workin order. My mother in law used a pantograph when she worked at a ship yard in Pula, Yugoslavia in 1955 engraving name plates for the various places around the ship I have a picture of her at work using the machine at the ship yard, I will see if I can find it.
