Hi folks, I am trying desperately to acquire or convert a Kold-Draft machine to 230v / 50hz for use in a world class cocktail bar in Singapore. There is simply no substitute for KD ice for serious cocktail programs.
KD used to make these machines, but let their ETL export certificate expire and will not currently produce any for sale. That said, I believe they still sell the parts to service the 50hz machines. What I would like to do is buy a new or used 230v / 60hz machine and swap out the motor and handful of other parts that are 50hz specific.
I can export from anywhere in the US without a hassle -- the shipping and export paperwork is not a problem at all, nor is the importation to Singapore. Likewise, I do not need a warranty and am not concerned about servicing locally here -- our local techs are used to solving all kinds of machines from all over the world without factory training. I'm happy to pay my money and take my chances.
Any of you guys know someone that would convert a machine for me? Or sell me a new machine and convert it? Or even tell me what parts my local tech needs to swap out? I am more than willing to pay handsomely for this help.
