Neat little labeling machine. I watched it a few times to establish exactly how it was working and just love it. HP (not Hewlett Packhard) will be bringing out a model sometime early in 2010 I understand . . .
I don't doubt it PH, but infernal machines fascinate me. Couldn't probably build one for toffiees but like to understand how the canny wee beasties work.
I can just imagine how much label stock might get wasted in testing and setting up. I was actually amazed that a simple manual machine of commercial origin (just happened to be in the Google video comments) cost. $1300. The one in Jezd link was obviously a home made job.
For even manually automated labeling there would need to be a LOT of jars. Be assured that the interest was transitory only. Oh, and I am not fascinated by bottling machines; just in case you wondered. I'm sure you realised that well enough though. I can't remember when you were getting away for your hols, but hope the current snowfall doesn't get in the way of your plans. You'll be needing all the you can get in your motor-home in the current weather. Extra food, fuel, heating and blankets will be the order of the day. The scenery will unfortunately be uniformly . . . white.
