    Default Cameo 24SS

    The specs on the Cameo 24SS says the print area is 14x24 - does this mean it can only print to a maximum of that size or can it go up to 18x24?

    The vacume holes will be that size. You might be able to cheat your left right dims slightly but not the dims along the print stroke.

    Damn. That sucks. If it won't work, I'll hook you up with the info, Fools Gold - it's in a town just outside of Buffalo. $1K.

    Check the drive system. If it's older it'll have two arms on a regular cam that is integrated into the head-lift. Newer models have a banana cam that is independent of the head-lift.

    Either way, if there's some extra chunk on the arm/banana cam, you can drill and tap those, and then drill extra holes on the extender supports. You'll have to play with locations to see where the stroke will begin in regards to the frame edge. Will the machine even support a frame that can print 18x24?

    It can be done, it is some work, probably not worth it for such a small machine. You'd be fighting it every time you want to print that big anyways. Keep your eyes out. I just picked up an M&M 25x38 for free.

    I've been looking for over a year now. This one was driving distance and cheap! So I had to ask.

    I watched this SPE 4 poster 40X57" sell on Ebay for $2000. I don't know the brand, but damn that seemed to good to be true.....probably was.

    Electric motor beautifulness, nice and CLEAN looking. Someone should have been all over that.



    Personally, I'd be looking at something a little more useful than an old cameo. They're good for what they are, small footprint, reliable, etc. They're just small, and limited in adjustability. I consider them the broken rollerskate with clay wheels of screenprinting. Not to say they're total shit, but you can do better with a better machine, with a little more money.

    That is a Dorn, and I think it was in Arizona somewhere.

    I agree about the Cameo's. Although, nine times out of ten, it's the operator, not the machine. Though it does certainly suck to have equipment that is not as skilled as you.

    It is a very strange thing to be in the market for equipment that is rapidly becoming (dare I say it) obsolete. (At least to the general world anyways, the poster world is at least 30 years behind)

    My big press sold for $25K in 1982. I paid $700.
    My imagesetter sold for $18k in 1991, I paid $1.
    My little press sold for $12k in 1992, I paid $150.

    Etc. Now is the golden time for those of us with a use for old technology, and the space and means to move it.
