    Best Edger.

    Dear Opticians.
    I am looking for some versatile Edger, who can run with out problems for at least couple years and with out bells and whistles.
    I am so tired of Essilor ultimate capa, which costed me 45K and it is junk once they start giving you problems and even TECH they don't know what to pin point at, all they do is change this or that and the problem is still the same.
    Thank you
    Manny

    Call VSI https://patternless.com/

    If you are willing to fix things yourself there is no better deal in my eyes.

    Kappa is a good basic machine! Ultimate is even better basic machine! Is Essilor the one that cant fix it? Get a new tech. The techs inside are very knowledgeable in US. In essilor line up kappa was one of the work horses in my opinion. Everything higher up just add on of bells and whistles...
    What issue are you having with Kappa?

    Once Coburn lost the contract for essilor tech support, all I hear is terrible stories about Essilor Brand Techs.

    Got you beat:
    I bought a 9000 series VSI Refurbed unit 8 yrs ago second hand from someone who'd own it 5 years. I've only sent out once for maintenance, the rest I can complete in house.
