    What is the oldest machine you still service?

    Had a idea for new thread here,
    What is the oldest machine you still see and service out in the field?

    I will start it with a old Sharp SF-7320 at a school, last seen just before school ended this year, in May.

    I guess our oldest one still on the books is a canon CD-4046 scanner, installed April 1999.

    It's still going strong apart for the occasional call for a new battery unit. Over the past year we have been actively been encouraging our customers to up grade to new models with an emphasis on colour.

    We also have a customer with a Sharp SF-2022 but this is on a chargeable call out basis and only so long as we have remaining spares and can lay our hands on toner.

    The impossible is easy - miracles take a little longer
    So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late.

    I still have a few Sharp 2060 machines that are still working, although I've been able to offload much of their volume to newer machines.

    I've since retired some older Sharp machines that I just refused to mess with anymore.

    Well, I guess my wife is 41 now.

    --- Well, I guess my wife is 41 now. --- OUCH!!!

    WD-40 and duct tape, right? If it moves, the duct tape will fix it, and if it doesn't, the WD-40.

    We had a couple of copiers in a Bakery place, which were NADs, installed in 1999.

    I've worked on a Russian C1 in a school which was running on 2.4 Million copies!!!!!!! The customer refuses to renew the machine.

    I know we have some analogs knocking about, and some copy-printers which are aging a bit.

    Hmm,

    Copier: Aficio 200/250 (just a very few left in the field) - we also have some Ricoh and Minolta analogue machines out there but I'm not doing these.

    On my arrive, i couldnt believe my eyes... i spotted a Canon PC10, a copier build in late 80's.

    If sometimes you feel a little useless, offended and depressed always remember that you were once the fastest and most victorious sperm of hundreds of millions!
