Both great machines, with great customer service, and parts availability, pretty decent price on both of them

If you can't get confirmation of accurate temperature settings on the Knight, go with the Hotronix.

Accurate temperatures is the most important thing you want to be able to confirm.

THankbyou for taking time to reply.
I ended up buying a used hotronix fusion looks great condition, seller provided me two videos .
One video was the presuure paper test and the other was he showed me himself appying a certain vynil on cotton and it came out perfect. I ended up paying a total of 1100 with shipping included! My mindset is if there is heat issue a new plate runs about $300 so still good deal. Its my first press , do you have any tips recommendations for accessories like certain outlets or surge protectors or any must have item size to help me maximize this baby. I cant afford different plates nor a movebale stand but I am looking into buying a commercial grade restaurant cabin with wheels

20amp circuit. If you don't have that, a 15amp will work if it is the only thing on it. Grounded of course.
