Where to find a good vacuum press?

Discussion in 'Commercial Posts, For Sale of Framing Shop Stuff a' started by Bridget Hanley, May 26, 2018.

    I am re establishing my framing shop in north central Florida, after having a shop in PA for over 20 years. Need to find a good used vacuum press. I had a Print Mount Cold Press and I really liked it. But can't seem to find their website, or a good working number to call them.

    Also, where is a good source for used equipment? Please, If anyone is associated with Skyline, work on the website!! Can't navigate, have no idea what is currently offered, and there is so much sold items--why are they still on there? I would be so happy to be directed to someone who has nice equipment for sale, but it is a mess to use their site!

    I re applied here under the new account, but I have been a lurker for years! You all are great!

    I believe the Printmount Company, from Smithfield Rhode Island, to be gone since last year. (It was a few miles from our shop and home) The website is still there, but I saw the property up for rent last year and the toll free number points to a non functioning local number.

    I believe they shared the space with Richmond company, which went under in 2016. (Nexmark LLC picked up Richmond's line, but it's not clear if they also have Printmount parts)

    Hi- I have a good condition print mount press and just rebuilt the vacuum pump for sale. Actually, I have plans to list all my frame shop equipment and supplies during mid June to early July. I live in Northeastern Connecticut and we operated a professional frame shop in Woodstock, CT for 12 years. We bought the vacuum press from print mount directly. Biggest problem, I'm in CT and your in Florida. If you want to discuss this or the the other items we have for sale please email me at elundin3460@charter.net. Our business name was E.M. Lundin & Co.

    Steve, to be truthful, I like your old catalog much better than your new one. Your new catalog is no where near as clear about what equipment is being sold or where to search for it. I wish you luck with the new catalog but I do hope that you look at it through the consumer's eyes. Joe

    Joe,

    Thank you. Always appreciate feedback and will make on-going adjustment to accommodate the consumer. Our new catalog is automatically defaulted to only show available items.

A search feature is located on every page. http://aimequipmentcompany.com/ Type in a word (or words) or number about what you are searching and all items will appear with regards to the words entered. Also check our "Resource" page for manuals that you may need.

    Any additional feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Back to PrintMount. I have a 32 x 40 cold press and may need a new bladder. Does anyone have info on where to buy one? It's probably something so simple so if by any chance anyone speaks to the Print Mount owner I bet that he could steer me in the right direction.

    If anyone knows how to get Print Mount bladders, please let me know. We have a 32 x 40 cold press. It runs fine in the summer but in the winter in the Northeast, it will not reach a vacuum. I am guessing that it needs a new bladder. Thanks!
