Anyone work in the printing industry?

Hi all.To cut a long story short I've managed to get my hands on some industrial printing machines after aquiring  them from a printers who has gone into liquidation.I believe that some of them are worth a lot of money and I have a buyer in for them already.The trouble is I have no idea exactly what its all worth and obviously want to do business with this chap armed with some reasonable idea of what to ask for.If anyone has any knowledge on this subject I'd be greatly obliged.The biggest machine there is an AGFA Avantra 30 OLP,plus numerous smaller machines which look like they should be worth a small fortune.Cheers.

    Ha ha,no I didn't steal them.My brother works for an commercial estate agents who manage this property.I've been asked to clear it ready for the next tenant and was told I could flog anything I thought might be of value.

    Cubed,as I say I know next to nothing about the machines,frankly.All I know is that the machine I mentioned is an image setter and doing a quick search on google is worth a lot of money brand new.I just wondered if anybody knew how much it may be worth second hand so when I talk to this potential buyer I'm not umming and ahhing.

    If its an Imagesetter, I don't think its an actual printer as you are thinking. I think its whats used to create the image that is etched onto the cylinders to go into a printer. The sort of printer used for large runs, magazines etc.

    I could be remembering it all wrong, my Dad used to own a printing company, but thats was 20 years ago, so might not remember it as it is.

    A referb one would go for about £2500 and that would be a very sellable price...assuming its all in working order.

    my dad had a printing company in batley that went bust, they all seem to be going that way. i know my dad had some 4 colour printers worth a million pound, they are worth a lot, its moving them , and making sure they work when rewired up thats the problem
