    Thank you for the info. We were looking for a used 2 color tob... they seem to be very compact with not taking much space. Could you share some info on its performance and maintenance. We do mostly simple small run jobs, not with lot of graphics.

    @ ajaybc: Is this a Roland 202? They are easy to maintain and run. The water system is a little tricky at first if you are not used to it, but it is a system superior to the Heidelberg or other presses. We have many customers with R202's. If kept in good condition, it is a very good press.

    yes, we are considering to buy Heidelberg SORMZ or Man roland R202 TOB or EOB. We do mostly pharmaceutical jobs which are not high on graphics. But all of them have special Pantone colors and so the press needs to cleaned often to change colors.
