Hi all!!

I know this isn't the right place to post this but I wanted to make sure it received attention as it is time critical.

It has been an age since I've posted and a very old Contact of mine remembered a conversation I had with him in 2014. He manages a print shop in Winnipeg Canada and told me that by the end of next week 5/27 they are scrapping this old machine as they don't have the space for it anymore. He is just asking about $200.00 for it.

Let me know if anyone is interested and I'll get you his information. Hate to see this scrapped. Attached is an image I took in 2014 of the machine.

Thank you for the consideration,

Gis izurieta

I would like to know if the machine was scrapped. If not, could this be purchased. Thank you. My phone is 610 762 3120

Good news for this machine. According to the Briar Press website, the machine has been saved and will soon be on display in Winnipeg.

Sorry Gis, it looks like you missed out on this occasion.
