Default The waiting paid off in the end

Just wanted to update everyone on our business venture. As many of you remember around a month or so ago, I had multiple post about the many different machines our industry. Our quest was for a quality used machine that would last for years to come.
Well, we found it, the 10/12 RPM that was listed last week on this sight should be ours. I will be flying into Virginia next Monday and if everything goes as planned. The press will tore down and brought back up to the good ole Dirty Mitten we like to call Michigan. I've had my on this press for over a month and had spoke with John from Blue Ridge Graphics on may different occasions. John and his employees have been great to deal with thus far, in the early stages of the transaction and they seem to run a great operation. They are one of the few that have moved forward with green technology, with the entire roof of their facility covered in solar panels. To say the least I am impressed. They have given us the opportunity to see the machine run before the tear down, which was a must for me.
I will try and post pics of the progress of both the tear down and install. We have roughly 30,000 prints the month of June, so we should have this thing pretty well broke in by then. I would like to thank everyone who gave positive feedback and especially Allan who without his input and Youtube videos, I probably would have completely looked past the RPM all together.
Thanks Again

Grrrrrr, I had my eye on that but about three weeks or so from having the cash as we'd just bought an umbrella printing factory. I think it's a great buy, just sucks our cash-flow is tight right now. Wish you all the best, great machine!

Sorry, if for some reason the transaction was to fall apart, I'm sure John would be more than happy to sell it to you. Iv'e known about the machine for some time now, it's been listed on Hirsch's site since early April. I was honestly surprised it wasn't gone already.
Reading my post above, maybe I shouldn't even be buying myself a press and spend the money on some English classes. My college professor would laugh at my post from beginning to end. Wow!!!!
Thank you and good luck to you and the umbrella biz.

Congrats man, let me know if you need anything. I know I'm not the worlds foremost expert on the machine but from a printers standpoint, I know all there is to know about it and I will be more than happy to help you with anything you might need although you probably won't need any. It's a great machine and I can give you tons of advice on getting the most out of it and especially how to take proper care of it from a preventative maintenance standpoint. I have a few shortcuts and tricks as well so call or email me once your close to install. I'm excited for you, you'll be impressed once you open the first crate all the way through the install and for years after. Congrats and welcome to the RPM crew.

Welcome to the club!

Unlike these other guys around here we took the road less traveled and glad we did, totally love our Progressive Rhino and the RPM Revolution, so much so we have a 16 color Mustang on order now.

We are located on the South Carolina / North Carolina border and bought a Rhino from Progressive Machines when they were in Greenville, South Carolina back in 2004, then we bought an RPM Revolution from Rick Fuqua a few years later, you will fall in love with your 10 color as we have ours. Only regret is that we didn't buy a 14 color and an extra quartz flash.

Do yourself a favor and call Robert Barnes of Spider Machines he has always been helpful to us, especially when Rick Fuqua fell off the planet awhile back with his divorce and all, Rick's a great guy and we wish him the best rebuilding his business.

Robert Barnes has had a long relationship with Mariusz from 2M and his brother Wes over in Poland, these two guys build the best screen printing presses in the world and we can't wait to get out new Mustang.

Do us a favor and post lots of pics of your install, and feel free to email me if you have any questions or Robert Barnes number.

It's amazing the fat jerk simply cannot keep from inserting him self into other peoples business when there is no need for him. And to go and make up a fictitious customer is really pathetic, you bob are pathetic and classless. So it's ok to bring up ricks personal life concerning his marriage? Well then I guess it's ok for me to mention what the grape fine is saying about your possible divorce coming up and your extra marital affairs with some close persons in your circle, guess your wife finally had enough of it lol.

P.S. hope the trust funds are all in her name.

That's what happens when you only sell 6 presses a year and steal your customers money.

If any screenprinter sold that low of volume he would be out of business.

Don't be fooled about that possible divorce, that is for business only, she isn't leaving Robert.

Classy plug for our favorite machine guru and automatic press salesman, but I digress.

Congrats on your new 16 color, we all heard about this machine being sold 4 months ago and I know some of us have been waiting anxiously for this machine to hit the states so I'm sure you are really ready to put it into production.
