"Yeah the enrober is a pipe dream and not really necessary.  I'm doing 500 pcs a day, mostly molded.  And I don't care new or used, as long as it works.  Thanks for the info."

"Rob: New or used? Your budget is not realistic for a new machine with an enrober belt though you may be able to find a used one in good condition in that price range. What sorts of production are you looking at in pieces per hour and week, and what…"

In the market to buy temperer

50# or less (not too small).  Need a wheel because I run a restaurant not a chocolate shop so I'm scattered.  Ideally will have have spout so I don't have to spoon.  You get bonus points if that and enrober (not mini) come in under $10K.  Not committed to but leaning toward Selmi, Savage or Hilliard.  I want in hand by the end of January.See More

"I'll just put it out there that I'm in the market for a machine comparable to the original poster and in a price range under $10K.  The wheel and depositor are important to me but not deal killers."

"When I opened my shop (not chocolate exclusive) I went to the local SBDC (Small Business Development Center) and they held my hand as I did the business plan.  At the end was a sort of stamp of approval for the SBA loan program.  So not…"

I'm entering my first competition next week and my design has a lot of white in it - very little natural brown.  The comp doesn't have written rules about the matter but I suspect there's a standard of when you've gone too far with color.  Any thoughts?Thanks.See More
