Gunter Wulff Arizona

Post by massy »

Hi,
I have this machine and want to restore it. I am needing some parts. I hope someone can point me in the right direction. I've uploaded some pics. I am an auto electronics engineer and mechanical engineer. I have lathes and milling machines. I have done many vehicle restorations, etc, but never a penny machine, but I like the style of these on the wall type machines.

Any and all help would be greatly received with thanks. I broke the glass front today digging it out of the back of the workshop.
Many thanks, martin.

Hello Martin,

Shame about that glass, not something you will likely find a replacement for. Funny enough I have a Arizona glass which had a break in the corner, not across the artwork, but the machine was scrap, but still have the glass.

It looks like there is a break on the damper arm as well in one of your pictures. You would need to advise beyond the glass what help you need. Is the rest of the machine complete?

This looks like the Arizona that sold on eBay a week ago.

Hi treefrog, yes that's the one. As you can see, I didn't pay a lot.

Thank you so much for your reply and interest, it is really appreciated.
I have two of the clamp brackets missing and the broken arm as you saw. Is there a mechanical set up manual or drawings available for this? Hi how much for the glass? I have been onto a man today l know about laser printing the picture and the plain glass is going to cost me £16.00, 5mm thick from a local window manufacturer. That arm that's broken is a pain but it may tig weld,
I will be stripping it down soon, as soon as l can find a drawing or an assembly guide, thanks.

I was looking on German ebay today. There are some good deals. I like the on the wall type machines, thanks.

You would have to share pictures of the problem parts, eg clamps.

You could scan and get printed. One of our members on here offers this service and has a printer of the size to do. I would have to dig out the one I have and check its state, but may work. Www.endofthepier.com

There are no guides other than the knowledge of people who can help, like on this forum.

Welding the metal used I suspect may be a challenge as it is an alloy with a heavy zinc content. I can’t believe you can tig weld and would probably melt.

I do have a lot of parts for the mechanicals of these machines, so may be able to help…

Cheers, thank you so much for your help, it has been invaluable. !THUMBS!

Be careful when pulling it all down.
It's not unusual after undoing a nut & bolt clamp on the mech to find it's also got a stainless steel pin through the two parts.

Hi,
Am I able to get the keys cut for these locks, based on the serial number or will I need to get locks with keys? Pics of my locks below.
I will be breaking it all apart over the weekend, thanks. I am looking for another one of the same type I just missed on on ebay, see below.

A quick search for Zeiss locks on this forum comes up with more than 40 posts

I bought my first Gunter Wulff machine in 1971, and although some claim success in getting keys cut and even getting hold of blanks, I never have.

See my post in this topic on Locks for a Beromat /Gunther Wulff wall machine. Not sure if it still applies...
