FAG Control 800

‹The FAG Control 800 was an early handcranked press manufactured in Singen, Germany. The press has probably been developed in the early 1950ies and has been the first of the ‹Control› series.›

Since it is a very early press, unfortunately not much catalog information about it survived.

Please note: for all automatic presses (Control and Swiss Proof Models) it is critical to first identify the generation of the electrical controls: SF1, SF2, SF3 or SF4. Though the schemas might look similar—they are not. An SF3 schema won't be good to fix the electical controls of an SF4 press!
