I see all of the time that stores that are staying in business and not struggling to survive are selling old used equipment for basicly nothing. Much of this equipment brings a couple hundred bucks and effectivley sets up competitors that do framing for an extra $20 over cost. Here is my suggestion, rather than setting up hobbiest competition why not take a sledge hammer to it and take it to the scrap metal dealer in the area. Many of the very old dry mount presses are selling for a hundred bucks more than the scrap dealers would pay. A good whack to the thermostat, one to the platten and another to the arms that the platten swings on. The industry has become so dilluted that an ongoing business would be well served by not putting it in commission to create competition. Recently Fletcher went through a Bankruptcy and a piece of that is 25 year old cutters are being recycled to death. A couple whacks to the head and bars would help protect them in the future. We tend to keep this stuff in service for decades to the demise of much of the professional trade. The best analogy would be like Israel selling well maintained and fully functional but aged fighter jets to Iran. Heck the U.S. might as well sell the old nukes to N. Korea.
