    i've wanted to try one out forever.

    andy mac has some kick ass looking clamps in the works i'd like to try too.

    So until Andy sends me some protos I'll stick to my jiffy clamps mounted on some birch and masonite.

    I've been wanting to get one of those. The jiffy clamps have been great so far, but registration's tedious, and it's time to upgrade the press to a big surface with vacuum suction and a decent clamping system.

    I believe this unit has micro-registration abilities.

    I am totally pretending I know what that means. I assume it means I can adjust the fine positioning of the frame via the knobs. I could be way off, given what little they provide in the way of information.

    Hopefully someone here has used one.

    I always liked the look of these. Hard core industrial and likely unbreakable, super solid rego etc.

    I have what looks to be that exact unit. I love it. Set up goes about 500% faster, and if for some reason you need to tweak registration during a run it take a matter of seconds. Working without micro registration is bullshzt.

    I have that exact set, and I find it adds too much offset at the back due the hinge design.

    But yes, set up goes way faster because of the micro reg.
