I have one of these that I'm thinking of selling as I keep on downsizing the business.

 

The machine is O.LA.ME.F TP/6 manual component bending and cutting machine. https://www.olamef.net/en-gb/tp6

 

Serial number 4575, Man date 1992. We paid around AU$1,000.00 back then, still available on several sites. Make me an offer I can't refuse.

 

 

The container on the left has the spanner, lead gauge, setting tool and gears for a motor I think but we only used it manually and for small runs.

John, I think you and I are probably the last engineers in the world who still use leaded components. cheeky

They are still making and selling the machine it seems, so there may be another 1 or 2 people using them.

Not so. I have a similar machine and will running a few thousand standard value resistors through it later today. I buy standard values (1k/2k2/4k7/10k/...) by the 1,000 and preform them as the price then works out at less than 0.01 standard currency units each.

 

 

Oh look, there's one for sale on eBay...

#1 Hardware Problem? https://www.avrfreaks.net/forum/...

#2 Hardware Problem? Read AVR042.

#3 All grounds are not created equal

#4 Have you proved your chip is running at xxMHz?

#5 "If you think you need floating point to solve the problem then you don't understand the problem. If you really do need floating point then you have a problem you do not understand."

That's a very cool machine. I have never see one, but then I am just an amateur.

 

Just sitting here thinking how much time and effort that machine will save you, and the benefits of repeatable accuracy.

 

EDIT: I also use leaded components, mostly because my eyesight isn't what it used to be and those SMT's are so damned small!

 

EDIT2: Buying resistors and caps by large volume is something I have done since I was young to save money. I still have some left from 40 years ago! Leads are a bit rusted now though.

there's one for sale on eBay...

 

399 pound sterling is about AU$700.00 for a new machine, they are getting cheaper. I have seen them for US$700-800.

 

As I said make me an offer I can't refuse. smiley

Isn't this how electronic components are dispensed these days ? ;) Not pre-bent though.

Yea, but still just a habit forming as the old vending machines!

I have a sea of old genl. purpose transistors (2N390x, 2N2222) that were, unfortunately, stored by the sea, and the salt air did a number on their leads.  A little scraping with a knife cleans them up enough to be useful - but if you don't, lord help you soldering them, 'cause nobody else will.  S.

I recently bought these:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/163710738462

Cheap Chinese stuff, but they actually help with SMD work (I had to modify the hinges a bit so that the lenses get as close as possible to the eyes, this increases field of vision).
