I would like to at least make my money back with it. That's good news. I went and checked his feedback again and it looks like people are happy with it. I figure if it works with an IRON this thing should work...

What paper worked for you? I am looking at the Trans Jet II

What temp / time worked for you?

I've been using 300 for 30 seconds, and getting close.

Very happy to meet someone who used it!

anyone have info to make this? can't buy the guide from the guy he is not offering it anymore. i would like to see how this works out. under 50 bucks i could probally make my profit back if this goes allright. then save up fro a professional one.
Save up and get a real press. I think I got this one working...it turns out (I think) that the temperature gauge is waaaay off. By like 100+ degrees. I tried it on some scrap JetLite (the page that worked), and by golly it did not burn the shirt and about 98 percent of the time 99% of it came off. I used 300 and not so much pressure and it seemed to work. I still haven't gotten any more sample paper to really make a determination, but I think I may have arrived.

This is what I have been doing lately to test that is better than going through all the shirts that I have been blowing:

I cut up little squares of the shirt and fold them in half.

I cut up the paper into little squares and test those.

Kinda like making shirts for mice. This way I can test and test and test.

When I get the sample paper I will post my findings.

But, as for you my young friend...I seriously recommend: don't try this at home.

Start off on the right foot and don't screw around. You won't save money, you'll only aggravate yourself and waste money trying to figure out how to use it. If I had to do it again, I would never have bought this thing. It's also very dangerous as the griddle part is unstable and spins around and is very likely a fire hazard. I think it would be near impossible for me to foist this thing on someone else if I wanted to sell it. REAL presses hold their value. I spent like $168 on this thing.

I, too, wanted to just get my hands wet. If I had to do it over again, I would, (and maybe will get) the Mighty Press 11 x 15. They have it at Coastal for $475 and that includes shipping. I seen the Might Press Light 11 x 15 for $386 plus shipping with two teflon sheet protector things (around $400 altogether). It comes with warranties and such.

Please don't make the mistake I made in trying to get by. You'll pay in the end. PLUS: The guy on eBay that makes the EZ-PRESS was VERY MEAN AND NASTY to deal with.

DON'T DO IT! Start off right! I know it's not what you want to hear, neither did I and paid the price!
