Besides Wallima and Luthy ? Planning to fly to Zurich first or second week of June (one week stay) and hoping that is not when Swiss businesses tend to shut down for holiday time. What say ye ?

You can hit Greub with a 9 iron from Luthy.

Are you suggesting he do that?

Take a video if you do. :)

Edit: I'm not sure who Greub is, but I hope he can take a hit from a golf ball.

Sent using Morse code on - .- .--. .- - .- .-.. -.-

Muller Machines in Bruegg is worth a visit. 12,000 square meters exhibit hall.

Don't miss downstairs. You might have to turn the lights on yourself.

Shouldnt this be in the finland & sweeden - nato thread, that is quickly turning into another off the rails ukie-ruskie rant?

I mean, it wasn't really meant as a derail, moreso as a joke sooooo...on the other hand, I haven't seen the thread you mentioned lol

You'd be disappointed if you did plan to visit Wallima... Unless you are a fan of empty warehouses....

Wallima made a huge stock clearence last month, through auction websites.
Interestingly, his most attractive/ovarhauled/well maintained machines were not available, so they would have either been sold to high bidders exclusivelly, or kept to be members of a top tier lineup in his stocklist.

Wallima passed away last January.
Meet his son and wife on viewing day.
Machines went ok-cheap prices.
Spare parts for Deckel's, tables, and disassemble machines went really cheap.
Incredible collection of manuals and diagrams.
And a funny story of how Wallima brand was born.
