Good price, I've had one for around two years used daily and it's still going strong.

Get the 550w if you can.... it's much easier to do CU labels

you can print custom CU legends with different sizes on the same label.... i.e. 18.2mm for MCB/RCBO and 36.4mm for MAIN SWITCH/RCBO

 

I had the 300 and the 550 is much better

lol.... it's still s good printer,,,, and a damn sight cheaper than the 550 (approx £120 😲)

 

I got the 550 when I broke the lever thats under the back cover .... so be careful with it!!

So the 550 doesn’t have said lever? 
 

how do you do a 36.4? I thought max was 24mm so surely your just printing two 18.2mm strips?

Back in the day Edmundsons did a deal...bring in any battery label,printer and well,swap,it for a new Tyco ( Dymo one with labels and case)

went to office world and bought 10 cheap Dymos with batteries and 2 tapes each

kept all,batteries...

4 Duracell AAs per printer

kept all tapes.   2 per label,maker

kept ONE printer

 

took 9 label makers to Eddies and swapped them

kept 4 for work and ebayed the others ....having taken the tapes and batteries out to keep

 

big advantage was these units print on to heat shrink sleeving as well

 

just saying

In telecoms wrap around cable labels are normally required by customers, most popular is Brady as they do hard wearing labels in numerous sizes and styles.

 

Sadly they normally retail for around £850+VAT new.  Mate of mine bought one and was moaning about the price, I then informed him I picked up  brand new one on Facebook marketplace for £150, brand new from a house clearance. It still had the bread bag ties on the cables... 🤣
