I have attached a picture of the AWT Accu-Print Screen Printing Press, High-Tech 5, APV 5280. Here is the link to AWT's website for the features and specifications on the press ( This press is set to auction on Tuesday, December 28, 2004 at 12:00 pm here in the Midwest. The Accu-Print Screen Printer Press (S/N 30895) is being auctioned, with reserve, by a governmental body. As you can see from the picture, the press is in excellent condition. However, if this press is not what you are looking for there is an American Arrow Screen Printing Press Model 44564 (S/N 939038) being sold as well. I have a picture of this press if you would like to view it as well.

I am brokering a deal with parties interested in purchasing the equipment from me after I purchase it at auction from the governmental body selling the equipment here in the Midwest. I am asking the interested parties what is the highest amount they are willing to purchase the equipment for? If you offer is highest and I am successful in purchasing the equipment, I will contact you on the afternoon of December 28. At that time I will forward to you an equipment sales contract. Once I receive a signed sales contract (fax back acceptable), I will provide evidence of clear title to the equipment from the Selling Party (governmental body). The equipment is being sold “as is”, “where-is” and FOB Shipping Point. At that point you will be responsible for making full payment prior to picking up or shipping the equipment to your location. The equipment has to be removed from it current location by no later than January 11, 2005. I am willing to provide you with a list of local rigging companies to crate the equipment for shipping, if necessary. All rigging fees are the responsibility of the Purchaser as well.

I am not like a traditional equipment broker whereby I am trying to sell the equipment based on the market value of the equipment. I purchase and resell the equipment based upon the return on my investment. Therefore, you are generally able to save your capital and purchase the equipment at less than market rate. However, it is also entirely possible that another party will out-bid me since I am bidding based upon my return on investment (which is based upon the offers I receive from potential customers like you) and I won’t be able to complete the transaction as well. In that case, I will forward an email to you on December 28 that I was not able to purchase the equipment. That’s why I tell the offeree’s that you should offer the highest amount you are willing to pay for the equipment to afford yourself the best opportunity to purchase the equipment.

In addition, I can provide you with a reference on my most recent equipment brokering whereby an equipment broker was able to purchase close to $40k of pre-press printing equipment for just over $11k in early December 2004 (Linotype-Hell 3900 Drum Scanner, Chromaset & tubes). I will need to have your response by no later that 11:00 am on Tuesday, December 28, 2004 to be considered for the purchase of the equipment. Thanks again for the inquiry and I hope we can make you a successful purchase for you.

Best regards,
Greg M.
