For Sale

Throughout the year Splinter Scenery construct a wide variety of theatrical sets of all shapes and sizes. Some elements such as Steeldecks and Stageweights are used in nearly every single production.

As part of our build we can hire items such as Steeldecks to keep your production cost down. Alternatively if you don’t require our build service but need to hire or purchase these items we can also offer this standalone service.

3 Axis CNC 3050 x 1525 Router (Meca Numeric) 2001

Starting bid: £5,000
Buy it now: £10,000


3 Axis CNC 3050 x 1525 router (Meca Numeric). Manufactured in 2001. This has been a fantastic machine. A 10′ x 5′ bed (3050 x1525) We have owned this machine for ten years. It is a basic machine as far as CNC machines go. but it cuts quite happily to run and run all day long. We manufacture theatre scenery so I’ve posted some examples of its work. We cut floors with it mainly so it’ll be busy for a couple of days then not do anything for a couple of weeks, consequently its not a machine that’s had particularly heavy use. Excellent starter machine. Only selling as we have been offered a newer machine….THIS MACHINE IS FULLY WORKING AND CAN BE VIEWED WORKING AT OUR PREMISES UP UNTIL 26TH JUNE!! Comes with: Computer, A box of spares, several collets, lots of cutters. This machine weighs around 1.5 tons. We can assist with moving the machine at buyers expense.

Twin Axle Braked Car Transporter Trailer

Starting bid: £700
Buy it now: £2,000


Condition is Used. I think this is an old ‘Brian James’ the wheel patterns are the same as older Brian James trailers. Anyway For Sale. This twin Axle Braked 2500kg rated heavy duty Car Transporter Trailer. This has been my motorsport trailer for over ten years. The Bed was Plywood originally now replaced with Chequer plate measures 16′ x 6’3″ (4850mm x 1900mm) The trailer comes with Spare Wheel, Handbrake, full electrics. 2 x ramps. Jockey wheel. Originally it was a covered trailer but I chopped the top off to collect a citroen Acadiane from france some years ago. This trailer has been sat around for a while and its time for it to go. It now has a coat of surface rust, and there are rust perforations on the back panel where the lights and related wiring have been fitted. This trailer hasn’t been used for a while so there is no guarantees that the electrics are all working, and it now has a healthy coating of surface rust, but it still rolls around easily. Would fix up very easily. Sold as seen Buyer collects. (could be delivered within 20 mile radius for a small fee) Ashton Under Lyne.
