With a Budget of $5,000 look at a GFP over a used or Enduralam product.
I feel they are very well built. We have had our 463th since 2011 and it has been a tank. Some of the process sucks like needing a allen to loosen and tighten the spindle sprockets but they have improved that in current models. We are actively looking at a Kala Mistral or the new 563th trying to decide if the all electric self balancing is worth 50% more.So the GFP's are well built? I just started looking into them as our GBC is dying on us. I like the idea of the take up on the back...laminating roll to roll sounds great. We've always just had a bench behind the laminator to accumulate the prints as they come out.
