Happily in late 2015 I took delivery of a new Enjay s24* etching press. It was built and sent from Melbourne to Brisbane, it came in three bits all delivered within the same week. So easy to install and now takes pride of place in the studio. Neil and Bill were most helpful in discussing the virtues of the various models and so were able to suggest a visit to a Melbourne artist Dawna Richardson-Hyde who has the very same model s24 in her studio. Making it possible for me to view and discuss it's easy care and low maintenance with a fellow artist really helped in my decision to purchase the Enjay.
