Good or bad buy?

I didn’t see the category “Letterpress for Beginner’s” before I posted it in the general discussion. Wanted to see if it would get more attention in this category :)

Good if it went for the opening bid, but it will most likely go for 7-800 plus rollers trucks another 300

I think its a bad buy. Rather than spend that kind of money on a small Kelsey, I would spend it on either a Poco press or a Pearl Press (both roughly $1000-$1200). But that’s just me.

I don’t have the means to have such a large piece right now. I am also a beginner, if this turns out to be a hobby (not that I think it will) I don’t want to have to figure out how to get rid of a 1000+ pound piece of equipment.
