    Default one arm presses

    im thinking of investing in a nice strurdy one arm press for my new studio in the summer. could those with one-arm press experience tell me some advantages/disadvantages of using them? how much should i expect to pay for a 4'x6' or smaller one-arm press?

    All I know is that i used a Cincinatti one arm press for a while and it was fucking rad.

    I have no idea what they cost.

    I used a one-arm Cincy in school. It was nicknamed "Big Mama". I was using a "decently" stretched screen (I was too lazy to re-stretch it myself) and on my first color, first pull Big Mama pushed the mesh, making it look like waves in the ocean.

    Needless to say, the rest of the day was spent restretching my screen.

    Is that the kind of press the drummer from Def Leppard uses?

    I sell two styles.

    One is the classic clamshell, an updated version of the old Cincinnati style, comes with aluminum vacuum bed, micro register, vac motor, etc. (the existing available ones from other manufacturers have arborite tops, vac is extra)
    A 4'x6' print area model is $4335, depending where you are, shipping could be up to $1000 or more. All presses are made in Mexico.

    The second is a more advanced parallel lift model (like the type in my shop). Uses compressed air for lifting, has a masterframe, alum micro adjust vac top, very precise, very easy to use. A 3'x4' is $9440, 4'x6' is $11,063.

    I am the North American importer for these, I can give GPers a very good deal if they want to deal direct. The product line is due to launch later this year when we set up our dealer network. PM me if you are interested.

    See if these come through.



    this is the parallel lift version with air lifting



    this is a smaller parallel lift using springs and internal counterweights - cheaper than the air lift. we don't have the prices on these yet.



    Sorry I don't have better pics, but the top one is the clamshell. We will have better product photos and information in a few months.
