Oldest Messer Machine Still In Use?.
Thanks to Zoe Green, Operations Director at Wakefield Skillcentre Ltd for submitting the original video and photos of their 44 year old Messer Secator S portable flame cutting machine which is still in daily use. The date on the plate is 1969, model no.1266.

The cutting machine has been owned by Wakefield Skillcentre for many years and is used every day Monday to Friday to cut plate for candidates learning how to weld and pass BS4872 and ASME IX welding certificates. "The unit has worked like a steam train cutting many pieces of metal".
