    Default Who has printed on an M&M?

    Not the delicious candy, but some sort of an automatic press.

    I am wondering if it would work printing posters. Does anyone have any advice or experience using one of these things?

    Sure that would work if it works. That's probably from the 80's. I can't tell the size, but you can measure the vacuum area, that is your max size (giveortake)

    run the press, ensure it has a reasonable smooth print cycle, note if the vacuum works and the top is chewed or usable.
    check that all the control switches work.
    check there are no serious breaks or mickey mouse repairs.
    Get any spare floodbar and squeegee sets
    See if they have frames to fit if you don't.

    AWT sells parts, they reserected the brand.

    Yep,... I work on one of those here in Fresno. It's still there. It's a very easy press to run work on. It's on cam and the one we have you had to get use to the way it stops and starts. If the print stroke is not stopped at the right time it would print the cycle again. The people that I worked for use to alway mess with the equipment themselfs and alot of the stuff you had to know the tricks to them to make them work right. The good thing about these old machines is they built to last forever.
