Our Kuraki has died! This was the first machine Taylor Freelance purchased many years ago. It was built in 1986 and we communicated with it through a serial port that we had to make a custom cable to get it to work. It also had a paper-tape drive! (That’s really ancient tech!)
We have been amazed at the durability of this ancient machine. It has made tens of thousands of parts for us.
So…we are tearing it apart and have a new toy showing up in a month. More on that later!
