    These look like great machines. I like looking at the threads that come up on the Maho machines and I bet they are a joy to run. I don't think they are very common in the U.S.

    In 30 years Ive never run into one in a shop hear.

    Nice machine Good luck

    I've got another test certificate, without machine,
    1581256 S from 1962
    so yours could be made in 1962 or 1963, -perhaps.

    What's your first name, sable?

    Not only looking like great machines, they are great, no toys. In my opinion, they are better than DECKEL-machines, but that is a question of faith.

    I agree that the Duplex 159 is the best designed German/ Swiss made milling machine
    I do not like that the 158 has no NT40 and IMHO the anglehead of the 159 is much more elegant The 158 head with quill is a bit clumsy OTAH I prefer the manualy engaged rapids over the electrical engaged of the 159
    The big advantige of Deckel is that parts are still available and for a decent price And that there are a lott of accessories in the market
    I think Deckel was very agressive in selling accessories with the machine

    Thanks for that information Max ,I don't know why but I always find it interesting to know how old my machines are even though it doesn't really matter of course.

    The pictures were taken when I first bought it ,even though it looks reasonably clean it seemed like it had not been used for a long time ,the coolant sump was by far the worst I have encountered and still stinks even after being cleaned thoroughly.

    The horizontal bearings were too stiff with old oil to run in the higher speeds ,a clean out and some fresh oil sorted that problem out but there is still a few other problems to sought out.

    Don't tell anyone but my name is Ed

    regards

    I believe all going well that I will be picking up a 155 but I'm having troubles searching online for it's weight.

    Does anyone here know or could point me to a resource to find this information?

    Thank you

    The weight of the older 155 model is 910kg (older machine has only one motor and which runs both spindle and the feeds through the gearbox).
    I have German manual for the older machine and I can send the pdf for you if needed. Also if there is need for the new bellows I have drawings and source for them. Just drop PM to me.

    Great to hear! I have been refurbishing my machine last two years and it is no finally in use. My machine has been in school use so it wasn't very much used but there were damages in the gears and it had some bad repairs. There are some photos about the project in google photos: Thiel Duplex 155 - Google Photos

    I went through the photos. Congratulations, you've done a beautiful job of repair and restoration. The machine is better than new!

    Thanks Ballen! Visually and mechanically the machine is in good condition now but getting it to the factory spec with it's geometry would need a little bit scraping work. I haven't yet skills to do it myself so I didn't touch the geometry of the machine. But if needed to do it later, it is much more nicer to do when everything else is in good condition.
