My family is now entering year 51 of framing. All without a CMC. I have an experienced framer who is good at manual mat cutting. With 4 frame shops closing in my area recently, I might be able to find a CMC for a reasonable price. -For a "high end" shop with very good results using a Fletcher, how would I benefit from a CMC? -Does anyone know actual recent selling prices of used CMC's for different models? My assumption is that with more and more frame shops closing, the lower the demand on used equipment, so it might be time for me to consider picking one up, if the price is right.
