    Karo, thousends of sailors hammering off rust would want one of those machines. Nice find. To bad if they find out, there is nothing under the rust anymore. Laser off rust and any part found beyound repair is reprinted in a 3D printer :). Soon we are only a few steps away from Starship Enterprise and its Replicator.

    It's simply a high tech heat gun..........it's like the post we had here years ago about a amazing torch that ran on water, it was simply a hydrogen /oxygen torch.

    Good luck, I know a guy who wants to buy one he asked me if I could contact the company and find out the deal as they were singularly unhelpful to his inquiries. I got a request sent to them in German and got an answer that they were not interested in dealing with us and could not provide a demonstration even if we visited the factory.

    It has a very similar feel about it. Let me know when your up for a visit to the HQ.

    I did get an email from them.

    All very vague. They were quoting $35k to $45k for the smallest units. I lost interest after that. :eek:
