Thanks Josh.

Josh, can you recomend a 16x20 or so that is an auto clam press.

Auto I mean, you still bring the handle down yourself but it clampls down automatically and it makes a funny sound like....puffff....like a compressor or something. My friend had one but he moved and I really liked it.

Do you sell these or know who does in Toronto Canada ?

sorry, i dont know the tech terms/name for this type of press.

Here is a quick video of one for you. This one is an Air Swinger style, there is also an air clam, but I don't have a video of it.
YouTube - Hotronix XRS

The one shown is a 16 x 20 but Hotronix also makes them in a 22 x 22" size.

Default Re: Heat Press - Selecting a Style - Video Demo

thanks Josh, I will watch the Vd tomorrow.

I'm seriously looking for this type of press to use with my old 15x15 manual one to test transfers etc. so that I can confirm results more accuratly by using 2 different presses. I find that these days with all the new ink-mixes and materials it has become more of a necessaty for me.

Thanks again.

Does Stahls sell them here in Canada ? I think I still have an account with them.

Why aren't the drawer style presses more popular? It seems like a far superior design? Or am I just overlooking something?

Outside of the clamshell that is my favorite to operate.

I think the main reason they haven't been as popular is that up until a few months ago Stahls Inc had an exclusive on them because it is a design that is made only by Stahls Hotronix.

So you won't see them in the Hix, Insta or Geo Knight line either.

Now Hotronix has opened them up to other distributors, so poularity should grow

I also thought the draw had the best design.

Josh, just curious - which style of press do you sell the most of? I'm guessing clamshell.

Clamshell -- About 10 to 1 over any other style. Then the Draw and Swing Away presses are pretty much even.

What are the basic price points?

How much work is above a 15x15 area, and is that full area applicable for the pressing?

Is one particular press better for Plastisol than others?

By the way. Nice job just showing the product on the video. Thanks

You mean like the Phoenix Phire press that Josh demonstarted in the first 20 seconds of the video?
