At $270, this is not a good deal, especially as the press seems to be
missing a gripper and comes with no other equipment. You should be able to
get a Kelsey for under a hundred bucks. Also keep in mind as you shop how
far the press is from you. Ideally, you'd want to pick it up, rather than
have it shipped.
