Badeco 217 Medium Spring No Duplex Spring Attachment
Badeco Swiss Made Hammer Handpiece - The World's Best Hammer Handpiece!
Genuine Swiss made Badeco hammer handpieces are recognized by stonesetters throughout the world as the best quality reciprocating hammer handpiece you can buy. Jewelers prefer the Swiss made Badeco hammer handpiece for its easily adjustable stroke, its controllable power and its long service life.
Most setters prefer the model 222 heavy spring-this is the most popular spring strength throughout the world.
These handpieces are sold with a Badeco 137.753 (Badeco 240.000) non-hardened tip. This tip is meant to be shaped and hardened by the user. Factory instructions for preparing the tip for use are as follows:
Shape the tip as you wish.
A wide variety of pre-shaped and hardened tips are available separately (see below)
- Step 1 Hardening. Hold piece on thread part with tweezers. (Caution: do not damage the thread!). Heat up front part with blowlamp up to 820 degrees centigrade (light cherry-red). Cool down rapidly, putting tip head down into oil bath.
- Step 2 To remove oil, whiten with thin sand paper. Do not touch point with your fingers!
- Step 3 Tempering. Finally, pass piece from back to front over blowlamp up to 130 degrees centigrade (the color of the piece must not change!) and cool immediately in oil bath. Should the temperature be too high, tip will lose its edge rapidly on first utilization. In that case start the whole process again beginning with Step 1.
Badeco has a one year factory warranty. This warranty does not cover the American made duplex spring, which has no warranty. Duplex springs add flexibility, but can be easily damaged if misused. Do not exceed a 45 degree angle when utilizing the duplex spring. Please carefully read the owners sheet that is included with every Badeco hammer handpiece we sell for proper use and limitations. The factory states the warranty as such:
Repairs caused by faulty material or workmanship will be rectified at no charge by the manufacturer within one year of invoice date. During the warranty period, all pieces dismantled by the user will be repaired at user's expense. Repairs effected due to wrong utilization and non-observance of our (Badeco) instructions will not be done under warranty.
Otto Frei has a repair department that can repair Badeco hammer handpieces.
