The price of a new press is pretty steep but when I went to pick mine up, they had a couple used presses for sale. I opted to go with a new press just for the warranty, but these things are pretty sturdy and I wouldn't see having much trouble with using a used one.
Go on ebay, and email the people selling heat presses. Ask them if they have any used ones that they can sell you. Sometimes you can find a good deal that way. If found one that was just used in trade shows that way, but still had the warranty.
