Can you still get these presses, and are they expensive!!

Niall
Niall,



yes they are expensive. About 2000-4000 USD per piece plus the cost for the currency adaptor.

I don?t want to get hit on my MKL again so I won?t tell you why we beeing a registered company can?t import them <img src='http://forum.fotoimpex.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':blink:' />

But you as a private person can import this from the US for yourself because in case of an electrical damage you would be the importer and could only sue yourself <img src='http://forum.fotoimpex.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Wink' />

Niall,



You might want to look around on ebay. I bought my press about a year ago for US$300.00. Of course it is used and not as pretty as a brandnew one but it works like a charm. Shipping/import to Europe might be an issue, though...



Best,

Niall, Muskeder,



whatever you do don?t forgett about the 110 V vs 220 V issue !!

A step down with 3000 Watts power costs a fortune and weighs up to 90 KG.



It is important that your press can be set to 220V.



This will unfortunately eliminate most nice price offers from inside the US.

I don't know about second handgoods though! it might not be an issue!!

I usually buy most of my photography stuff on Ebay ,Germany1 The prices are usually good!!

Hello Nial,



the german for dry mount press is: "Aufziehpresse" but maybe you could find some under "Presse zu aufziehen von Bilder" ( Press to mount pictures... )

hi Niall,



FYI, there's a hefty import duty on goods imported to the UK from the US. (more than 20%)

This also applies to second hand goods bought from a dealer through ebay, if its' value is properly declared on the package, I got stung by this myself.
