6400 GRAPHOTYPE


This is our 6400 series machine.

This is a DEBOSSING machine and was used by an auto parts distributor in Ft. Worth, TX.  We acquired this machine directly from the original owner.  The machine runs fine, it did need some cleaning and adjustment.  The machine was on line and in use when we took possession of this unit.  We want to thank Mr. Tom Cheek of Wills Point, Texas for his contribution of this machine to our collection.

Currently we are seeking the following for this project:
FACTORY ORIGINAL OPERATORS MANUALS
FACTORY ORIGINAL SERVICE MANUALS
FACTORY ORIGINAL REFERENCE MANUALS
Advertisements
Technical Bulletins

Also seeking an EMBOSSING version of the 6400 series Graphotype machine to add to the collection.


6381 GRAPHOTYPE - #1


6381 Graphotype #1 - with "electro-assist" shift

This is a 6381 that we obtained from a undisclosed source.  The interesting thing about this machine is that it has a solenoid that assists the shifting of characters between upper and lower case.  When activated the solenoid will hold the first character of a word in upper case and then after the character is struck it will release automatically and all the remaining characters will be lower case.

This machine has a crack in one of the cast iron supports on the base which needs to be silver soldered.  The work light is missing.  The clip board bracket is broken and the side mount tray and drawer are smashed and severely dented.

This machine does run and prints well.
This is a DEBOSSING machine.

6381 GRAPHOTYPE - #2


6381 Graphotype #2 - this machine is almost mint.

This 6381 came from a man in Virginia - he donated it for the cost of shipping.  This machine is a mint in condition as anyone is ever going to find.  The machine has a clipboard, all covers and shrouds and a work light.

Everything on this machine functions and it runs like a dream.

6341 GRAPHOTYPE - #1


6341 Graphotype #1 - Machine we currently use at Gun Shows.

This is a 6341 that we bought from a man in Tyler, TX.  It was the first machine we got.  This machine is the work horse of our inventory, we take it to all the gun shows we go to.  This machine runs great and has been a good machine for us.  This machine has a clip board.  We removed the work light as the socket was damaged and it was hazardous.

We have located the original equipment manufacturer of the work light but must raise the money to purchase a replacement socket then we will put the work light back on the machine.

This is a DEBOSSING machine.

6340 GRAPHOTYPE - #2


6340 #1 - With tipping unit.


Another View of 6340 #2 - with tipping unit.


Close up of 6340 #2 - with tipping unit.

This is a very interesting machine, it is a 6340 EMBOSSING machine and the tag roller has been replaced with a tipping unit.  The tipping unit is chain driven.  This machine is in very bad condition, it is currently being "prepped" before we work on it.  We are soaking the machine in penetrating oil to try to get the workings to free up.

It has a work light and clip board.

Currently the Keyboard, ring gates, dies and punches as well as many other moving parts are completely froze up.  This machine was used by a school photography company to make ID cards and the tipping unit was used to put gold tipping on the card lettering.

This is a EMBOSSING machine.

We are seeking the following for this project:
ANY documentation related to the tipping units
Operators Manuals
Reference Manuals

6341 GRAPHOTYPE - #2


Front view of 6341 #2 - with tipping unit.

This is a 6341 which is technically a DEBOSSING machine but the user changed the dies and punches out and this machine was converted to a 6340 machine, which is an EMBOSSING machine.  This machine was used by a company that did school photo ID cards.  Notice the tipping unit on the machine in place of the tag roller.

This machine is in serious need of repair everything on the machine is frozen.  Currently we are soaking this machine in penetrating oil in an attempt to get the mechanical parts free and working.

This is a EMBOSSING machine.

6340 GRAPHOTYPE - #1
6381 GRAPHOTYPE - #3


6340 #1 and 6381 #3 awaiting repair.

Both of these machines are in need of serious repair.  More than likely both machines will be completely stripped and used for parts.  These machines were donated by a man who bought them on eBay only to find out that they did not work when he received them.

NOTICE: None of these machines are for sale.


6340 #1 - Close Up

This machine has a cracked flywheel and a bent main shaft.  This machine appears to have never been used.  It looks almost as if someone knocked the machine over immediately after it was manufactured.  There is also a crack in the main horse shoe casting.  The machine is exceptionally clean but it is damaged beyond repair. 

The only use for this machine is for parts.

This is a EMBOSSING machine.

6381 Graphotype #3 - "Large" plate machine.

This is a 6381 machine that came from Tyler, TX.  This machine has a large carriage on it to accept very large plates.  This machine is missing parts that prevents it from running.  We need a character spacing paw and some other parts to make this machine functional.  This machine is missing the tag roller, it does not have a clip board, it is also lacking the work light.

These machines are projects for our "living & working" museum.  Many of these machines are either donated or sold to us at a discount for the purpose of putting them in the museum.  As we repair these machines we will be working up complete information pages on these machines and posting the information here for everyone to use as reference material.

This project is funded solely from on-line sales and donations these machines get addressed as funds become available.  Your on-line purchases and donations will keep this project alive and allow us to further the restoration of these machines.
