    Unfortunately, only junk on eBay.

    Was understood, just saying 'go for it' because there is nothing worthwhile on eBay.

    Our Drytac 2525 has lasted over 19 years, is used 6 days a week and we have absolutely had no trouble with it. The heat is more even, the pressure adjustable for delicate work, the heat is more accurate.

    A Seal 210 will not stand up in professional circumstances the same way this thing will. The Seal is great if you like trying to find parts and repairs. How do I know this?

    I got a Bogen Technal for nothing or next to nothing, from a local newspaper. I dont know much about them, but it does work just fine. I wouldn't hesitate to get another.

    I use a Bogen Technal 560, and the heat could be more even. When I measure it at different points, under a distributing sheet of board to make it more even, it varies up to 9 C at extremes, and it floats some 8 C between cycles. All this means a lot of testing of adhesion, and having to return prints to the press once or twice if they pop, but I do bend them rather severely after mounting. Such strong adhesion helps them cope with very humid display conditions, which I once had to learn to deal with.

    I hear that HotPress is one to look out for if you have the funds and a ton of space.

    The temperature fluctuation between cycles is a matter of the thermostat. I measured that on my Seal 210 and got a difference of 6°F between high and low.

    Ralph, by the way what type of tissue are you currently using? I've been using Seal/Bienfang Buffermount (low temp and supposedly removable - though I've never tried). My understanding is this type of tissue melts in the press and bonds during cooling. I'd really prefer something that bonded in the press if that exists. I'm a little frustrated with the Buffermount workflow.
