6X6 CHAMELEON FOR SALE
« on: May 23, 2024, 05:00:17 PM »
It's just taking up room in my garage. Good shape older 6x6 M&R Chameleon with side clamps and 16x22 pallets. I have 3 no name flashes as well. $750.00 for all of it. You haul it or pay for shipping. I have no way to get it on a truck. If you want pictures I can send or try to figure out to put them on here. Located in Cedar Rapids, IA (that's Iowa). I'll throw in a '06 Sportster XL 1200 C for $3,000. The wife wants them both gone. Otherwise it might be me that's gone.  Message me if interested

Off to the scrap yard I guess. I know I'm an old timer, but it's sad to see there is ZERO interest in a press like this. I know the times have drastically changed over the last few years. I just didn't realize how much. I know, DTF is the way to go.

If you were closer I would of bought it just for a backup.  We haven't had a manual press at the shop since 2014, but in the back of my mind I always wish we did.

Unfortunately there is a huge glut of used presses that are just near impossible to sell unless local pickup. I've got three in storage won't even bother posting.

I have my old 6 color with the arms off, shoved into a corner for "just in case". It's not in the way and I'm sure if I got rid of it
the auto would go down the next day.  ;D

..and i sit here in Germany green with envy how much second hand screen printing gear is available in the US. (looking at you, digitsmith) A 6/4 chameleon with a hot chili flash went two month ago in the classified ads for 2000.- euros in less then an hour.

Manual presses are selling so cheaply because people now use DTF printing technology for the short runs.
Never saw this coming.

I'll tell her you said that. Just make sure you're wearing a cup if you see her coming.
