Anyone had any experience with these £100 eBay stencil machines. Can't find any reviews on them trustworthy. Cheers

Yes I bought one recently.

Definitely works BUT as the pre-printed paper rolls through it has a tendency to curl up inside the machine (misfeed).

I use mine with the front section unlatched and with a pen tip or screwdriver just make sure the paper feeds through the exit port.

The quality of the stencil is SPOT ON, but the positioning can be out an inch either way on the length of the sheet, meaning you have to work slightly undersize a4 on the length. Trial and error may solve this problem but I tend to place artwork central to counter this movement. It's basically down to how the printed sheet and carbon paper align when you start the process.

I reported the misfeed error on my copier and the seller issued a £50 refund rather than exchange. Shipped from Germany but name suggests Chinese seller.

For £50 I'm very happy with it, and if it didn't misfeed I'd be very happy at £100.

Thanks for this, very helpful - sounds like they're worth it. Going to get one, the other options are all nuts prices!

Damn - Dont want to part with any of my RW's.........was gonna offer ujp a stunning Bov Williams coil machine. Oh well, I'll keep it. TBH, I seen them pocket jets on the Bay for £450 but I remember an old member of the old forum hooked some guys up on a deal on them. Shame I missed out at the time.

Saw widely varying eBay prices on this, assuming Pentax PocketJet (US) is same as Brother PocketJet...advice welcome.

Happy to bid in at £80

dammit whippet why do you have to come in and bid so high?
don't you already have all the latest coolest gadjets?
can't you just beam it up to your starship enterprise and have them teleport you the stencil?

yeah i got one of those ebay stencil machine for 80-90 bucks, it can do clear lines but not photos. overall worth it cuz it saves time. i can get the paper in just fine to make it come out perfect aligned. i really wanna gonna get one of those brother printers to print from computer

Haha cheers Reset, didn't realise I was so well off. mind you when I look down at some of my shitty machines (yes I have 2 Sharpz but a whole pile of other crap) I don't feel so privileged.

You do know I work for my wife, and she gives me a 'weekly allowance' rather than pays me? Just happens I have her PayPal password Laughing

I love my pocketjet, i traded it with Paul Porter for a machine. He sells refurbished ones for gbp209 for a 200dpi 229 for a 300dpi and then you will be added to hist thermal tech support list.
