NOTE: Effective immediately, all Reliable S550’s will be shipped with a new all metal mesh pressing plate, instead of wood pressing board. Only Reliable uses an exclusive metal mesh plate for the bottom-pressing surface. We use metal because unlike wood, it will not warp. But most importantly, the steam coming from the head will no longer get trapped in the wood press plate. This reduces condensation, and along with an improved one-piece pad cover set with thick felt padding, greatly improves the pressing performance of the S500.
Steam Press hold down bolt 12mm x 1" is included in ST04 only for Family Press FP202L&E models and will need substitution at the local hardware store for other brands and models of steam presses. Velcro straps are not needed if presses are bolted down to the stand. The hold down bolt with China Feiyue Family Press ST04 Stand is not the right thread size or length for Reliable Empressa and other brands, so you need to take the bolt to a local hardware store for the next size up 13mm x 1" metric threaded bolt and add lock/washers for increased stability and permanent installation. If you use a 14x1" tighter threaded bolt, you will have to slightly ream out the hole in the stand which is too small for the 14mm bolt. John Douthat, Tech
The revolutionary digital S550 will change the way you do your ironing. Imagine pressing your clothes without all the work!
The pressing surface on the S550 is over 10 times larger than most hand held irons. Pressing with the S500 can reduce ironing time by up to 70%
For dressmaker’s, you can even use the S550 as a mini-fusing press. Its even heat and quick burst of steam is great for setting fusing on collars cuffs, jacket fronts etc.

Note: Home Ironing Board Presses have 100 pounds pressure between upper iron plate and lower ironing board. Pressure is less at ends of the boards, depending on press width, fabrics and garments.
Clamping mechanisms are in the middle of the press and lose some pressure at the ends You can equalize the pressure using press cloths at one or both ends. We have few complaints in 38 years. It is not a problem on shorter boards like Elna. Miele and Singer rotary presses are best for equal pressure. John.Douthat@AllBrands.com, Owner and Tech.

The mounting bolt that comes with the Family ST04 stand is for their own Family Press FP202. The Reliable S500 press footprint fits the ST04 stand tray, but you have to get a next thread size larger metric bolt plus washer from a hardware store to make it a permanent installation. John Douthat
