    I'm looking to buy a dry mount press, preferably in the Sydney area, but potentially from anywhere within Australia, depending on freight costs.

    Please PM me if you have one for sale, or know where to find one.

    Dry mounting press

    Hello James,
    the good news is we have an Ademco model 1518. Its platen size is 390mm x 450mm. It's not been used since the 90's. I switched it on a few months ago and it works. The paint is peeling and there's some handling rust on the handle. It came from a dept at Sydney uni. I'll shoot some pix of it and run a heating time/temp test and send to you

    The bad news is we're in Launceston.

    I'll ascertain a shipping cost to Sydney and advise you. I think the best deal would be as backloading for a Sydney removalist/carrier on a Sydney-Launceston delivery.

    We also have a large box of tissues.

    And, we've a 5x7 deVere enlarger with three heads.
