    Default Deckel FP2 Restoration / Overhaul Company in Germany

    Hi folk

    I'm looking at purchasing another Deckel FP2 from Europe.

    It is a 1972 machine and was rebuilt or overhauled by Maschinenbau Hellwij GmbH, (Spezialwerk fur uberholungen) a Special factory for overhauls...

    Does anyone know anything about this company and its history or its reputation??

    Well that's a start, thanks very much Charly - much appreciated

    Now I need to find out what was done to the FP2, trusting that their reputation is as good as their website?

    How long ago was it overhauled
    If it was in the 80ies it has little value

    If the machine is overhauled in the 80ies it might need another overhaul by now
    If it was recently overhauled it ads value
