    So how long would 36 take?

    36 in an oven will take about 35-40 minutes plus an additional 15 minutes for the oven to warm up

    72 would take an hour and ten.

    in an over you need 36 jackets, and probably 72 so you can prep while cooking .... thats a lot of £$£ on top.
    With an oven, you do all the work, then sit back for half an hour, then do some more.
    With a few presses, its more continuous, but easy to fit around doing other things .... init?

    Yes and no :-)

    Not really trying to start a topic on mug v presses (unless you want me to :-)), I have both and both have their good and bad points.

    I am just interested in how long a box or two would take as I see good reviews about this press so was just curious.

    I have one of these and it's great, though I do tend to put one mug in at a time as I only normally do one-offs as and when required. I had an order for 30 last week so decided to do 2 at a time but got similar issue to that of Gooner Gary. Hence i just stick to doing one at a time .

    You see the reason I started the thread was that I wasn't sure if I had a dodgy press, before I start buying more. Not only will it randomly countdown immediately, but when you switch off the right side of the press with the red button, the left hand side also stops its counter!

    I'm printing 36 mugs as I type on one side of the freesub and two adkins presses..It took 45 mins without any faffing with clamps. if I make a mistake, the new mug will be ready in 166 seconds.

    The Freesub will print a single mug in 4 and a half mins on average if you want to work out times.

    I would say 36 mugs would take approx 75 - 80 mins, including taping the paper on the mug.

    what do i know?

    FREESUB ST-210 looks like a pretty bit of kit ... why do you need to press mug for longer?
    This doesn't work. It works for the first mug because the press is heating up from cold. But when you do the second mug, the press only cools down as far as 150 degrees. This resulted in under cooking of the second mug. Or else I have a wildly inconsistent press.

    I have had the dual mug press since August - worked fine to begin with but recently the temperature has become erratic. Can jump to 200 degrees in a second (i have it set to 175) - resulting in overcooked mugs. Very frustrating. Has anyone else experienced this issue...?
