    hello I was wondering if anyone here had a accurate ish weight of a ranalah wheeling machine

    I have a evil plan and need the weight to see if I can find a foundry in modern England with the capacity.
    Thanks

    Hopefully I can get a quote to cast around the £2k mark and then it’s viable to make a pal and myself one .
    I sold mine when I was offered silly money thinking Id find another for sensible money. That was six years ago
    I have the machining capacity to make it so why not

    Just updating thread incase someone searches in the future.
    A ranalah is 15cwt so allow 750kg with casting variations
