    I've got an old Arizona 180 that's been out of commission for a year now. But, for that entire year, it's also been pushed into a corner of the shop and taking up space that can be better utilized. Any recommendations on the best way to send it on its way? Scrapheap? Junkyard? Recyclers? Dumpster? Anything?

    I appreciate any feedback on what you other guys have done with old solvent printers - thanks!

    Dynamite. You want to make sure that nobody else has the misfortune of using such a terribly designed machine - even as a boat anchor. I hate those things.

    there was a whole thread not too long ago about the pro's and con's of free items in the front yard! LOL !
    the machine would go away, the sign would be laying in the gutter, and then they guy would come back around to complain that it is a peice of junk and how dare he put it out for free....
