    I realize that you get out what you put into a piece of equipment, just wondering if anyone on here has one and if you've gotten your money back outta it. I was looking at the Thomsons, they're monsters, you'd have to crane that sucker into the building.

    Regardless of what anyone else is doing with theirs, I think you have to ask yourself what it is you plan to do with it, and how you will market your products and services.

    I do something similar with a small hand-operated Kensol hotstamp / die cut press. We have developed our own line of specialty products for a very small niche market. Except for the steel rule dies and the hot stamping dies, we do everything else in house. Since our press is primarily a hot stamp machine, thermal kiss cutting is the next frontier we plan to venture into.

    Sit back and drool...the press shown here (definitely not my own...wish it were) is one sweet press: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyCyUsFhYsY&feature=endscreen

    And another on .010" poly-carb http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hRUVfqIY9Y&feature=relmfu
