Furnace Record Pressing Tests One of Ten Rebuilt Toolex Presses Soon to Go "Live"!
Furnace Chief Eric Astor wrote: "Next steps are to affix all of the rest of the parts, replace the analog controller with a PLC and then fire it up. We’re very excited. Live soon: 10 brand new presses."
Astor also runs Furnace Manufacturing the company that for more than a decade has done, among other things, final record assembly and packaging for major and indie labels, sourcing pressed records from its partner in Germany, Pallas.
Furnace purchased these ten presses and had them completely stripped down and rebuilt, as well as modernized with the latest technology designed to produce top quality vinyl records.
Here's a video showing one of the presses in "test mode":
