The Hopkins BWM presses are the originals, and the company was started by Riley Hopkins. He started a new company called Riley Hopkins Promotions, which are the Riley Hopkins presses. The Hopkins BWM presses have conventional micros (XYZ style), and are considered (and always have been) great presses. Riley Hopkins presses feature the joystick registration, which is unique, but requires two hands to use - one moving the joystick, the other the frame. Many who've bought them like the joystick, but having learned on regular style micros, I think it would be harder to pull the screen into registration. The presses themselves seem to be well made. I'd want to see one in use at a shop before I bought one, though, just to see how easy it was to register screens. The original Hopkins presses are pretty much the standard design that most other press manufacturers copied.
