    same one I have since I couldn't afford to ship the larger models to NZ. You should be very happy with it. I think some go larger doing sections at a time, but I mainly use it for 8x10 prints..

    Good deal. That's a good press at a very good price. I use a much older 11x14" press mainly for flattening prints, and occasionally drymounting. It is possible to mount larger prints in sections, but I'm not sure how it works with the "reversible" mount tissues that seal as they cool, as opposed to tissue that seals as it heats.

    This is the exact same press I posted about yesterday. The platen and pad are slightly over 11X14. I have been using this press recently to mount 11X14 prints on 16X20 mounts with no problems. Just make sure you sandwhich the print and board you are mounting with a board on both the top and bottom. The press works fine for me. I think these go for at least $500 new and you got a good deal.

    I hate to say it but I had been watching this one since it listed. I think I got a good deal. I saw a couple new ones listed at above 600US. I noticed it was listed in a weird place so I hoped no one else was waiting to snipe.

    Now to figure out how to get it past the wife. Maybe they can send it up to work and not home:smile:
