I have a project coming up where I am in need of a 1000 - 1100 ton machine.  I am looking at new machines right now but would be very interested in getting a good used machine.

Roger, I used the MAPP Capabilities Search Engine found on the front of the MAPP website.  The only criteria I used was checking the 1000-1100 Ton box and the list generated will over 20 MAPP Menmbers with presses in this size range.  When narrowing the search to IN, OH, MI, and IL, I came up with around 18 MaPP members with this capability.

I sent you a list of phone numbers and contacts you should call to see if there is any 1000 press sitting idle on somebody's floor that they may want to move.

Good Luck!

Thanks for your help in my needs for a large machine.  Once listed on the MAPP website, I received a call within a day or two with a company that had one for sale.  I went to Illinois yesterday, looked at the machine, and purchased it.  Again thanks.  I really appreciate it.

Kind Regards,
