Elna or Euro-Pro Press machine

ninja | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

I am planning to purchase a “clamshell” press.  I do a lot of tailoring, and am wearing myself out fusing with my iron.  I want a press with a vacuum feature.  I have located the Euro-Pro EP5500–sounds interesting.  However, local dealers have worned me that these presses are unreliable, that the heating elements go bad, and that it is super difficult to get parts/service.  Any suggestions?

    I have had a Euro-Pro Electronic Steam Press (EP5100) for about five years.    I hate to bate the Gods, but I have not had one bit of problem with this machine.  While I don't use it regularly, I always use it to fuse tailored jacket interfacings.  I bought the press on-sale from Montevilla Sewing Machines in Portland, OR.  Whenever I am looking for a "deal" I always call Montevilla even though I live 5 hours south in Ashland, Oregon.  Montevilla has an 800 number (800 854-1430) and they are a great place to comparative shop for prices.  Beverly
