Hey everyone. I just wanted to put out there that I have a one pound coffee canning line for sale that I took out of production about 7 years ago. It is an old continental seamer, complete with 9 head filler, de-scrambling table, boxer, conveyors, etc. It lacks a vacuum pump, but I know where to buy them if needed. We were running an 11.5 oz. tin can while we had it, and doing a truckload every 4 days during normal business hours. So, it runs at a good clip.
It was fully functional when we took it out of service, and I'd expect it to still be with a little tune up. The can companies usually provide a free technical visit if you're buying cans from them. Their techs are very good at helping you get these old lines up and running smoothly. They helped us a ton during our initial install phase.
Please contact me if there is any interest out there for one of these antiques!
