Dryer casters With heavy-duty casters specially designed for the Workhorse line of dryers, users can roll an oven anywhere in the shop or at an off-site event. The caster kit comes with two casters for each leg of the dryer that are affixed with a nut and bolt to a steel strip that is indented in the center where the leg fits. Each caster can be locked to ensure stability. The 3" caster wheels are made of a durable rubber that will reportedly not damage floors, but will roll across a variety of surfaces. The wheels swivel making it easy to move the press into position. The only tool required is a wrench.

Magna AquaPlas White CMJ is a ready-made white opaque paste. It can be used as an underbase, white or pigmented to achieve pastel shades. Magna AquaPlas Neutral CMJ is a ready-made clear opaque base that can be used as a print base on white or light colors with the inclusion of as much as 12 percent MagnaPrint Eco pigments. It also can be printed on the top of a flash cured AquaPlas White CMJ underbase to achieve bright shades on dark backgrounds. The bases are compatible with each other and can be mixed in any ratio to achieve the required brightness of print.

This machine features the Advanced Super View (ASV) HD LCD touch screen display by Sharp Corporation. The PR1000e features the Thread Spool Reset feature which erases the machine's memory of what thread belonged in what needle position for the last design, and assigns the colors needed in the new design in sequential order. It reportedly stitches at 1,000 stitches per minute. The enhanced InnovaChrome LED Thread Color System, is said to have sharper and clearer lighting than before, for virtually fool-proof color matching. The LED light under each spool indicates what color thread belongs on that spool, and the lights also double as a visual status system. They flash if a thread breaks or needs changing, and signals when your design is finished. Software upgrades are also available.
