    I'm thinking of producing my own tiles,
    Jcr tiles . Of course these need to be of the utmost quality so does any body know if I would be able to produce a high quality tile using this equipment .

    The machinery they used was perfectly fine, same as in any other factory really, they just didn't know how to use it :)

    I guess they didn't read the instruction manuals of the machines so didn't know how to control all the variables that can affect the sizing and warpage during manufacture, and another important bit of machinery they are missing is the electronic calibre sorter which you find in most foreign factories (it scans every tiles dimension and sorts them into their own separate groups/batches.... minimising size issues).

    Other than that, its all good. Worth a cheeky £5 bid, and may cost a further coupla quid for a shed to fit it in

    Don't know how true it is but they didn't turn a profit for the last couple of years.
    So do a Ken Bates buy the debt for a £1 make it profitable then flog it for "Brewsters"

    Not sure how true it is but I was told an asset stripping company bought it a few years ago and had the intention from the start to sell the land the factory was on for development.
