for me it didn't start out that way. It turned into it after a year or so.

Yes, thought I had studied the market and equipment real good before purchase, didn't take but a few month's into it to know it was going south. For me it was pad printing equipment the whole 9 yards of gear.

...no......but..... I do know a guy who bought something and has been paying on it for 5 months and has yet to have a successful print come off it. I'm surprised this particular fella hasn't set it on fire and shipped it back to the vendor with a giant F YOU spray painted on it.......jussayin

Happened with our UV Printer. Everything else has been great, met expectations at least for the first few years. (DTG equipment is what wasn't fun after a few years lol)

"Equipment" is more than vague. What are we talking about? Printing? Laser cutter? Tractor? Toaster oven?
There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply. The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.

Yeah I bought an Epson F2100. Printer itself is fine, but I never use it or have time to use it and the price of them dropped aggressively like a month after I financed one. I'll likely sell it for a huge loss this year just to get it out of the way. Some lessons are learned the hard way lol.
