    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,

    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?
