Based in Netherlands and in urgent search for Ademco press

Post by Jos Segers » Sun 18 Feb, 2018 8:10 pm

Hello all,

I am a hobby photographer and passionate on traditional black and white photography.
For almost 40 years now I process my own films. As an experienced and passionate printer I only work with fiber based paper. The problem with this type of paper is its tendency to curl which makes mounting of prints a challenge.

For this reason I intend to buy a second hand Ademco heat mounting press. In the Netherlands these are very hard to find :head: .

So my question is: does anybody on this forum know where I can buy an Ademco 1822 in the UK? I will take care that the heavy machine is transported to the Netherlands.

Thank you,
Jos

I usually mount enlargements sized 40x50 cm. Therefore the Ademco 1822 is more what I am looking for.
Thank you for your help.

Yes, I was lucky to lay my hands on a 1822 model in March 2018. Nevertheless I am interested. Is your press in a normal working order? And what would be your asking price?
