How Long will a Tensilkut Machine Last?

We had an inquiry from a customer for replacement templates for their Tensilkut I.  They couldn’t find a nameplate containing the model and serial number of the machine, so they sent us a photo instead.

Tensilkut I from the early 1960s

Judging from the color and the lack of a stainless steel top plate, this machine was built in the early 1960s.  A corner is missing, the phenolic plate is broken on one corner, yet the machine still works well.  There is at least one other unit of this vintage still in everyday use.  After 50 plus years, that’s pretty good.

And, yes, we were able to supply templates to this customer.
