New Toy

New Toy

Cutting a long story short, here's my most recent acquisition on the toy front, a German Klopp DP-AP. It was advertised and I bought it as a 375mm stroke, but it turned out to be a whopping 550mm when I actually got it home and checked!
In fact the machine is not hugely bigger than a 375, but I'd never had bid on a 550 if I'd known.

Basic parameters are 550mm stroke, table side travel 500mm, vertical 375mm tool slide 140mm. 2 speed 3~ motor, 3 speed gearbox giving 6 speeds. Weight is quoted as 1250kg without the vice. There's power cross feed and power down feed to the tool slide.

There are a couple of other novel features too, a Bowden cable operated clapper-box lifter to lift the tool on the back-stroke, a large inclined frame to the machine base from the table to counter cutting loads and the main drive is via solid rubber tyres on the motor spindle driving the outer rim of a large flywheel.
By operating the 4ft control lever worthy of a Holbrook at its most flamboyant, the motor is raised by spring pressure to bring the friction drive tyre into contact with the flywheel and the motor contactor energised. Operating the handle the other way, releases the drive, cuts the motor and at the extreme of movement, applies a brake which easily stops the machine in half a stroke or so.
The stroke is adjustable from outside the machine simply by releasing the knurled locking knob and winding the crank pin adjuster - not unique, but a nice touch. It came with an original shaper vice and a chip catcher.

I got some interesting documentation with it too, like the quotation and sales invoice for what I presume must have been its predecessor along with sales brochures for this one. This machine is around late 60's vintage, but the sales docs are dated 1943 with all that that implies of a factory in the Ruhr at that time!

As an aside, passing Stuttgart to collect the machine I went to both the Porsche & Mercedes Benz museums. I would certainly recommend the Merc museum for anyone with even a passing interest in cars, very enjoyable, easy and comfortable. The Porsche museum was like an ultra-minimalist stark Ikea kitchen with cars as clinically sterile ornaments. We couldn't even find the piggin' unmarked white button for the unmarked white lift on the white wall of the white hall beside the white doors of the white lobby. And obviously there was not a single drip of oil anywhere in the entire place - except in the carpark...... under my trailer - and yes, the floor is painted white!
The cars were as impressive as you'd expect in a Porsche museum, but it was anything but warm and welcoming.
I didn't have time for a return visit to Sinnsheim which I've been to before, but is well worth the time too if you're going that way.
