We do full rebuilds, and can also restore your old machine to maintain it's original classic look while incorporating newer safety features and electronics.

Depending on the condition of the screw machine, it is sometimes more cost-effective to have it fully rebuilt all at once, rather than the customer having to replace part after part.

If a rebuild is to include painting, then the machine must be torn down completely.  I prefer to tear it down completely regardless, because I have found many manufacturing defects as well as defects caused by prior rebuilds that may have been rushed or improperly done.  It doesn't take that much extra time to do a thorough job. 

The following three day time-lapse shows an older D6 going through the tear-down for a complete rebuild.


 Here the machine is stripped and ready to be sanded and primed for painting...



The D6 Clutch box is shown at left.  It will be stripped down, as shown in the next several pictures, to see what needs to be replaced or repaired.
The next two pictures show the Gear box, which also gets completely stripped down to see what needs repairing or replacing. Here the Gear box has been cleaned.
This picture (left) shows the straightener and feed lever housing, removed from the D6 and awaiting further inspection.


Machine is now painted and being reassembled.


Machine from the back.  One of the changes made was to modify the old-style oil tank for a drop-in Bijur style.


Concurrent within the D6 rebuild, the same customer is having me rebuild an Agathon grinder - a true basket case.
Above, you see the Agathon stripped and ready to clean.
Here, the Agathon is cleaned and ready to prime and paint.
All painted, reassembled, clear-coated,  and waiting for parts.


Above, you see the D6 ready for wiring.
Here the D6 is in the process of being wired.  I expect to fire it up any day now.

D6 completed but without guards.
