table top cylinder press

i’m in northern new mexico and looking for a table top cylinder press, any simple vandercook or challenge, would work for me, preferably in terrible shape as i assume i can afford it then and pay to fix over the long run in keeping with my income flow, looking for something relatively nearby that i can drive to or won’t break the bank on shipping.

i welcome any advice, tips or suggestions.

    That is more what I was expecting to pay. I had actually stopped looking on ebay, becoming discouraged and have been looking for something in my locale.

    Today (03/17/08) a 099 sold on Ebay for $200.00 that’s a fair price in this market.

    come to think of it, they probably bought off themselves. lol

    i had to read my email notice several times, i thought it was wrong.

    The eBay auction for the 099 ended. $975.55! WTF!

    thank you
    that’s my ballpark budget for a little tabletop press, i’ll put a bid on it (my first one ever :)) and keep your estimate in mind.

    i did see a rusty 0 on briarpress for $500 obo. that seemed a bit high, though i did email a much lower offer.

    i’ve got a fixed amount in the bank for this right now and figure it can’t hurt to put a few inquiries out there.

    Last week a somewhat rusty Model O on eBay sold for $387.89! There were five bidders. I think the price too high considering how rudimentary this press is, I think $200-250 is fair.

    The “099”: bed is the smallest of the gravity presses, its bed is 13″ × 22″. The “01”: bed is 15″ × 32 and the “0”: is 13″ × 32″

    There is a Vandercook 099 press on ebay item #160203623698. Does this belong to anyone on the list? Or can anyone tell me what a good price would be for this? Or any info from personal experience?
