Hi John, It's a good machine for it's price as long as it passes the longevity test, & yes Altus are a very good sales & service company, but it's not the answer to world hunger. What machines did you replace with this, and what did you trial it

I would look at Vitronics-Soltec such as the XPM 820 or even the 520. BTU also makes very nice ovens. The Hellers I used to use went through blowers every 6 mos. and both of them came it defective. You must have got lucky or I got unlucky. Russ

I'm currently using Electrovert Vectra's right now. They do really well. I was actually in New Hampshire last month looking at Vitronics Soltec's newest wave soldering machine too. I think they would be worth a look as well. Good Luck!

Hi, Yes, I was talking about the oven, but then thinking about Soltec in general and about things the software really should be able to do, got me worked up on the Deltawave. I guess the frustration with it's software is not far from the surface.

Hi, That's true, and the plant just does not look high tech without that PC on the front of the wave. I should donate the wasted processor cycles to the SETI screen saver if it's still going on. Regards, Grant
