Re: morso underpinner

It's an underpinner James, they are hydraulic from what I remember, I guess check it ain't leaking, also take in to account the Moro underpinner isn't anything like as wide spread or well known as the Mitre cutter, this would throw up a red flag for me.

Re: printers capable of printing onto mount board

I actually had one of those and didn't realise it printed on 1.5 mm board, I had it as a photo printer, I gave it away because of how fast it went through ink, nice quantity though.
