I live in North Carolina as well, Southern Pines, near Fort Bragg to be
exact. I have been looking hard at the Thomas presses and was wondering (if
you don't mind) what the shipping was from BC to NC for your press. Thanks

I have a Takach press, made in New Mexico. They have
a variety of sizes available from table top to really
(mine has a 44x84 bed and it is not top of the line).
Unlike most, they have a composite bed (Maple core,
1/4" aluminum laminates, topped by high pressure
laminate (Formica). Lighter and unlike a steel bed
they will not warp under pressure.

Takach is a family run business, and are very pleasant
to deal with.
