    Hi all,

    I would like to buy Ademco Seal press - minimum paper size 30x40cm, but bigger also is good. Since I am in Hamburg, Germany - and this is heavy stuff - the closer to me is better, but I can drive 500km or more to make personal pickup if nothing close will pop up.

    Thanks.

    Regards,

    In Tassie, right? How big, how much do you want for it and how much to get it to SA?

    It is hard to find this kind of press - are there any new produced still?

    Yes! See the www.macodirect.de site for details. A bit pricey, but they are still being made.

    Thanks for the link (I got same link from one user on PM moments ago). I will keep bumping for some time here - and if nothing - I will buy new when I get some extra money.

    The press listed in the link is (if I am correct) not a drymounting press, but something like the glossing machine. Maybe you know all this, but in short: the glossing machine takes a wet print and gloss-dries it, or just dries it. The drymount press was made to glew dry prints to carton, and is now used by many b/w fiber labs and photographers to flatten their fiber paper.

    I use the drymount presses to flatten prints. A Buscher for 50X60cm prints, and a Seal 210 for smaller prints. The latter I got in Germany two years ago, paid euro 450. Lot of money, but now I am happy I did it . . . The Seal is the easier one in use.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks Hilo,

    I know this. My plan is to get Seal for more less same money you paid, but it is extremely hard to find...

    Bump.

    I saw one on British ebay for only 45 £, but no shipping to Germany, as it is around 45 kg.

    But I am a patient man :smile:

    I have looked at the web site. I think there is some confusion. Our dry-mounting press has heavy aluminium plates top and bottom (heating element in the top plate) It is used with a dry photo, a sheet of adhesive a dry cardboard mount about 90 degree heat and pressure. Squeezing a wet print in it would not be a good idea.

    Dear darkosaric,

    My father has an Ademco 2125 dry mounting press, he might want to get rid of it.
    Are you interested?
