A friend of a friend is selling his 4 color, 1 station magnetic press, with squeegees, inks, emulsion, spot cure, and a bunch of other stuff for $1000 cdn. I don't think it's worth that much, what do you think? I'm also wondering if a magnetic press is good, it seems pretty amateur. Has anyone owned one? I currently am using a harco 4 color 4 station press bought from Monster Press in Langley, BC. This magnetic press would save room and allow me to keep my current press but once again i'm not sure how good this press really is.
That same press for Under $400 USD. I think your friend may be asking too much. I know in Seattle, a lot of people are trying to get rid of that press on a regular basis. I had a one color like that, and gave it away cause I was tired of dealing with t-shirt printing. It worked, but was a pain to setup.
I have one of these sitting around as a backup for t-shirts. I also use it for posters (with a big ass 20" x 26" platen attached) Not having micro or joystick registration can be difficult at times, but not impossible. Good for doing stuff in a spare bedroom because it doesn't take up much space, but that price is definitely too steep.
