Comments from recent customers of the new 300-AL machine:
“Wow. This thing is fast. I could hardly keep up with it. I dumped two rolls into it, turned it on and started cracking and dumping into the hopper as fast as I could. At the end of the box there were maybe 60 coins still in the hopper. 5 stars to Andy for such a great design on a simple idea.”
“Ran a stop watch for a box. 7:52.7 for 2500 pennies. Works out to a hair over 19,000 an hour. This thing is a rocket on my desk.
“I haven't been so fascinated with a device since I bought a turn-of-the-century (the LAST one) Parke-Davis encapsulator twenty years ago. The encapsulator made more impressive noises, but man, this Ryedale rocks. After work Friday I brought home nine boxes, sorted them all, then returned $150 in zincs this morning (yeah--on a Saturday!). One of my favorite tellers said--I swear--"So you want six boxes?" Sorted those when I got back home. Simply an amazing machine….”
“Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
Your machine rocks. I could not be happier with it. I just wish that I had ordered one earlier. Thank you again!!
Just wanted to say thanks! Received my machine and started using her already. Thanks for great service and a great product!"
"Andy, I appreciate the quick ship. Already notified from FedEx. I already ordered the Dri-Slide from Iron Braid."
HolyCow! This thing rocks!
Andy, I'm blown away by this thing. I can't fill it with rolled pennies fast enough to keep up with it. I'm trying to find out if I can get bagged pennies instead of rolled, but geez--unbelievable.
I set the thing up, a bit of searching for where to plug in the power supply (by the switch--duh), put it on the edge of a workbench, put a little cart under it with a couple of bins, and add some pennies from a few rolls.
Right away, I'm certain something's wrong. I'm getting 2/3 of the coins in the "copper" side. That can't be right.
I grab a handful of those coins. Yep, all 1982 or earlier. That's strange.
I add another 10 rolls of pennies. Most are falling in the copper side. There's GOT to be something wrong.
Well, there isn't--it works amazingly. It just turns out that in a bag of $50 in pennies (in rolls), I had a remarkable 69.9 percent of coppers.
I know I won't get that yield over time, but sheesh.
It's well-engineered, well put together, and works like a bandit. What's not to like?
Got to run--I've got another 180 rolls to break and feed the beast. Now I need to figure out a faster way to get those pennies unrolled. :)
