The Deckel Pantographic Engraving Machine

It is a small pedestal machine.

Friedrich Deckel. Type G.I. Machine No. 2751.

A close-up of the pantograph arms with engraved graduated scale.

The spindle mechanism.

The spindle is easily removed from the machine.

Top half of the spindle assembly, disassembled (gulp!)…

…and the bottom half of the spindle assembly. Spindle arbor and pulley should separate but are too tight to remove by hand.

  2. Hi Ahmad,
    I am sorry to say I don’t have any engraver parts available for sale. Good luck in your quest.

  3. Good day.

    I have a G1l Fredrich dekel machine but my problem is the markings on the arms have gone.
    i have tried numerous methods of trying to pull the detail from the metal with no luck.
    I have scoured the web looking for detailed drawings of the arms so that i can re-mark them but this too have been fruitless.
    Is there anyway i could get a detailed drawing / photo / sketch of the arms with their markings?
    if so please get in contact with me.

    Regards
    Daryl
