Hi,
I just bought a old Seal Jumbo 150 dry mount press. It takes about 30-40 minutes to reach the highest temperature level (350 degrees). Is this normal? It seems kind of slow to me...

that is a long time; however, why do you need it to reach that temperature; which is much too high for dry mounting either RC or fiber papers with modern mounting tissues?

Thanks for the replies guys. To answer your question, I guess I don't really need it to go up that high -- I was just testing the press out and was using the highest extreme as my example. I probably should've picked a temp that more people actually use though shouldn't I have? Point taken. Thanks again for the replies.
