I have just learned that the wheeling machines have been cast and machined and are at Peters for the final paint and component fitting and adjusting, prior to crating. The shipper has advised that the delivery is still on schedule for arrival in the US about mid February.

Just received word that the Tommasini wheeling machines have left Peter's shop and are at the dock, waiting to be put on board. They are expected to arrive in about 30 days or so.

As an aside, if any of you sheet metal enthusiasts have an interest in acquiring one of these wheeling machines, the pricing has been more closely determined. The wheeling machine itself will be $3,100 for the next order only! A 'wheel' package is available from Hoosier profiles, here in the US for $750. These upper wheels have been made to accommodate the larger hub/bearings that are part of the Tommasini design, and include a 3" x 8" upper wheel and lower anvils of 4", 8", 12" and 24" full radius. Crating for shipping will be about $100 and nation wide shipping has been made VERY reasonable thru Fastenal. PM me if you have any questions.

I would love to have one to learn on. Might be a little crazy for a beginner to dive right in and spend that kind of money without any experience. However, I did buy some parts from Joe to build an English Wheel almost 5 years ago that I still haven't gotten to.

I want to add my 2 cents to this thread. I picked up my wheel frame a few days ago but until lasts night hadn't had time to do anything with it. I worked out a deal with Peter to buy just the machined, unpainted casting thinking I'd make the machined components myself. So finally the point of this blurb: I was deburring an edge of one of the bores and the chips that the burring knife produced were long and curled more like steel chips and not crumbly like cast iron chips.
I know that Peter did destructive testing during the development of this machine and he finally arrived at a nodular casting that had the strength he was looking for. Years ago I worked for a company that made governors for big diesel engines. The standard product was common gray cast iron but the governors that we made for the military were made from nodular iron called ductile cast. These ductile castings were much tougher than the standard iron. This frame is that, nodular cast iron. Or to borrow a phrase from Per, Good Chit!

Bob you are quite right ,we do use nodular iron on the casting but after testing a few of them, we decided to use other materials as well in order to give the casting the proper elasticity for all weather, simply because if they are used in a very very cold environment they will not brake
