Thread: Refurbishing a Magma Mk5

    Refurbishing a Magma Mk5

    I picked up a 1986 Magma Mk5 casting machine thats been sitting still for almost 2 decades. I've cast a few 1000 bullets on it but there are a few issues.

    The pour and mould knocker solonoids are past thier best and will need replacing at some point not to far away. The sprue tapper is also missing. I contacted Magma to see if replacements were available. Discontinued. My mechanical skills are good but my knowledge of electronics and solonoids is basically non existant. Anyone know where I might be able to source equivilant replacement solonoids to keep this thing running a while longer?

    Rebuild it to pneumatic pour and sprue/mould knockers. That way you could get all the parts from Magma. I'm sure they are helpful. They have always been to me. They have a great customer support.

    If you want I can snap some pics of my machine. It's also a mark5 with the new upgrades.

    I have rebuilt a couple of older Bullet Master machines. You should be able to find a lot of replacement parts thru Grainger.

    You would'nt happen to remember the product number for the solonoids needed for the Mark 5 Caster?

    Do the pneumatic ones work better?
