ademco 2226 press : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Rather a strange one (for a change), but someone may be able to help! I've seen an Ademco 2226 hard bed press for sale, but the seller thinks that it may need one of the heating elements replaced. My question is thus: are the necessary replacement part(s) readily available (in the UK?) and if so, are they easy to replace? MANY thanks for any advice! Regards Paul

I have an Ademco 2226 Press like this that is about 18 years old and costed a fortune then. On the front of it there is the address from that time ADEMCO Ltd, Coronation Rd, High Wycombe, Bucks,England. To my knowlegde the company is still in existens some said they had merged with Seal so also look for their adress in England. I think the heating element is made from resistant wire like the element in a toaster so contact an old and experienced electrician and ask for his advice.
