I love my enjay press: it is exactly what I wanted. I had castors added to mine so that I move it by myself. I'm using it for intaglio and relief printing, and find it smooth and effortless, with good, even results. Bill delivered it to my door and oversaw the installation in my studio, ensuring that it was running perfectly before he left.
