hey what should I be looking for in buying a new heatpress .
Is digital better than manuel? is a swing press better? should the temp go up to more than 450? I have the jet press 14 by geo knight right now it keeps over heating and burning everything geo knight will not replace it,I have sent it back 3 times and they reckon they have fixed the problem. anyway , so now i'm just looking for an upgrade. Looking to spend about $1,000.00- $1,200.00 looked at the phoniex any other suggestions?

Cheers Debbie

Look for how the press measures time, temperature & pressure. For $1000-1200 dollars, you should be able to get a top of the line clamshell press in a 16 x 20 size. At that price point the press should have digital time & temperature, as well as an over the center pressure adjustment point to ensure even pressure. At that price point you should even get a press that opens automatically when done with each application.
