    My Sodick is an AP500, year is about 2000. It's a great machine. Pretty much all my problems with it were a result of something I did wrong. It just runs and runs.

    Just out of curiosity, why would anyone want an up acting press rather than the conventional down acting ones? Doesn't seem like a workable design to me.
