Vendor.
So the old system is   € 3400:- ex works, 30 days net, delivery now 5 weeks ARO, optional std 7" win 10 pad may be added at current price, BT wireless I/F. price valid 30 days.

New system MEBalancer is € 3100:- ex works, 30 days net, delivery now 3 weeks ARO, price w/o win 10 pad, request current price, 2 options 8" rugged or normal pad or use your own PC w. USB cable or BT wireless. Complete with 2 accels, tacho, magnets and extension cables. price valid 30 days.

I already sold and upgraded the above described balancing machine from 1972 (soft machine) with the MEBalancerBM, the no battery balancing machine upgrade version so now it increased the sensitivity yet a significant step. Since it use a version of MCV sensors like IRD does but smaller called "Pinngivare" here as a rod goes inside from the nose and connect to the coil so it is working like a displacement transducer but differential so it reduce the influence of background noise and have a extremely good dynamics and low noise so it can really use the new measurement system. Even or because sensors are original from 1972 refurbed and rebuilt by me at least once.

Can you give me your e-mail or other contact number so that I may forward that to my customer. I like the concept, would probably prefer a rugged I-pad to be included, battery operated, and certainly have all menus, units, etc. be in the US format (imperial?).

Shoot me a quote for new system with rugged I-pad to d_mccallister@suddenlink.net
include the pertinent info for contact when buying and I'll go from there.

Thanks Oli,

Right now there is a 2130 Balance box on Ebay for < $4000 USD. It has Balance and Analyze loaded. Looks like it was sold as a balancer. Has 2 channels. Mux adapteres, tach, accels, etc. Not sure what the Route program would cost, but this might be a real deal.

that would indeed be a good price. However, the union is crazy at this facility, and their core group already collects data (took it from me, said that was their work[rolleyes]) and sends it in to DLI for analysis. So the word is no one can have a collector. But, they don't do balancing, and I still have that work. So this department I've been working with wants to be able to balance. I said I'd teach em. So that's the short of why I'm looking for balancing box alone. There is winking going on when discussing whether the ability to look at a spectrum to confirm large 1X is data collection or not.
You can't make up some of the stuff that goes on in this place. They make money in spite of themselves.

Oh I got a call from the 3 letter corp that had me contracted as supervisor and didn't pay the bill, their customer did and the none paying party wanted the report on the balancing.... I referred them to the entity that did pay for the report...... It i crazy out there.... Yes there are a stealth FFT in the box :-) sort of hidden in the menus but exist so y can see 1xRPM I will also upgrade with some bearing condition as soon as I can.

I have to admit I am not that up to all oz-inch IPS you know. It may need some work. Amp, peak yes and some most are mm/s RMS for normal use.... I attach manual for your comments and I may need some work to do that in all......
You can even find the run up/down and FFT tools hidden in the initial run menu window. I just found that the software can be run in demo mode
so I can email it to you and you can run and comment on the not really existing imperial settings.

Dave, I can only imagine. In the 25 years I’ve been in business I’ve had the good fortune of never dealing with a strong union presence. Most plants I’ve worked in were all too happy to let me do the heavy lifting. When I was with the power company in the 80’s the union (IBEW) was fairly strong and certain ones were difficult to deal with. I drew a bunch of them for post-shutdown balancing, and they were giving me a bunch of crap. I told them “you’ll all be gone within 10 years.” “Oh they can’t get rid of us - the union won’t let them.”

10 years later the company transitioned maintenance to “multi-craft” and those knuckleheads couldn’t learn the new skills and pass the tests, so were the first out the door. At that plant, the original staffing of 365 now stands at 150.

Rusty,

This place made national new 15 years ago when they were shooting at people during a strike. They thought anyone coming down a state highway where the plant is at was trying to scab. They stopped practically everyone to know why they were on the road. Made lots of folk mad. They threw jack rocks out on the road and ruined many a tire. Didn't like the owner I think. One of those places you'll be glad to retire and not fool with any more. If I didn't have a lot of history with the supervisor I work for there, I wouldn't go in. It's easy work (supervising bearing installs, teaching and supervising alignments, balancing, etc) just most of the fellows I work around (save for the two or three that I am personally with) are aholes.

Rusty, there is a great opportunity for some adventure before retirement. You can go to work in a Lybian desert. You can find a job offer on the other forum [wink]

No hard feelings, I wish you all the best [smile]

30.06 and .30-30 were weapons of choice at that time. Lots of mountains and hills they laid in. A 160 grain boat tail can cut a lot of limbs coming down out of the brush, and still have a good punch when it gets to the road.
The world is a small place. I was on a job in Va. (not stealing from Danny, he knew I was there [wink]) and met a guy who after much discussion over a couple days found out he had worked at this place during that time. As a matter of fact, he was the union president. His wife convinced him to leave not only the company but the whole area when he came back home early one morning from laying in the woods close to the company owners home. He went there to shoot him. He told me it took her about three days to get him to see what was happening in his life. Said after he realized it, he put all effort into finding another job (was with a contractor) and they left. He was tickled to death to have another life. I could only shake my head. People get caught up in things like this that consumes them. Sometimes leads to poor decisions. This gentleman was lucky he had a good woman, that didn't give up on him. Would have been easy for her to do.

This sort of thing is about power, not money. The fundamental problem with our world is the need for power, and primarily men and power. You can see it in politics (at all levels), sports, the gun culture, domestic abuse, sexual assault, terrorism, mass shootings, the corporate world, even the fascination with powerful machines (cars, jets, crushers, earthmovers, etc). Men just need power, and when they feel powerless, when they feel disrespected, all hell breaks loose.

I am thinking of buying the 2130 I mentioned above for sale on Ebay. (I have a customer interested in my IRD B-50 balancing machine) It is a single channel unit but comes with a 2- and 4-channel multiplexer. It comes with the Analyze and Balance firmware, but no PC software, so if you didn’t have MHM you wouldn’t be able to download balance data or analyze data. I would resell this unit with a laser tach and holder, and 4 new accels, cables, and magnets.

In case my deal falls through, is this something (the 2130) that would interest anyone?
