A customer engaged us to repair a sandblasting-machine. The machine was not sold by us! It was found, that it was a clone model!!! of a CLEMCO Pipe Cleaning Unit Spin-Blast type. Unfortunately it was not possible to repair the machine because wear-and-tear was too high, furthermore the quality of various parts was insufficient. The machine, though it hadn´t been used much by the customer, was not in a condition that it could be repaired for reasonable expenses – a total loss.
