"Oh noes, it's another noob, just ignore him and maybe he'll go away...."
That is a great deal...you can sell them all day for $500 in bad shape.Yeah, I had been keeping close eye on craigslist ads and facebook's marketplace etc. My plan was to go ahead and switch money over to different account so I could use a debit card that was valid and still purchase the Transpro. However as I checked messages before leaving the office here to go work on the studio (still building) I decided to check marketplace on FB again.
Passing all the same ol' ebay'd presses I came across a Maxx 16x20 for $1000, got to $850 but 6 hour trip to get it. Then there she was, a GK 14x16 swing away for $200. I looked again and said "Where'd you come from?" ... there she was, said it was posted 5 days ago.. which I'd been on here every day for two weeks, never saw it. Checked location, 1.25 hours away in Memphis!! "$200, can't be real, that's a $1,300 press". Sure nuff, guy said "Buddy of mine owed me money, he tows trucks and in a truck he hauled off had this in it. Was never picked up. So he gave it to me." I Got it for $180. At initial test it fired up to 300*, but needing to go soon I shut it down after making sure timer worked and paid the man.
It's a little banged up, but it's a press, they can take a beating. Will clean it up and fully test it tomorrow.
