We are moving to Philadelphia and must downsize our shop. Sadly, we must part with the items listed here. Everything for sale has been very much loved and hope we can find buyers who will treat this equipment with care and respect. The presses and type have been kept in a climate controlled building for the past 6-9 years under our ownership.
Everything must be sold soon as our building is currently for sale. Please make an offer and we will consider it if we do not receive a higher offer before we need to move. Please let us know if you have any questions. Contact info at the bottom.
Very early pre-war Heidelberg windmill press / No. 11764 - mfg'd 1928 / $900 or best offer
We acquired this press 6 years ago and have not had the time to put it into service. We sent out the two main rollers to be recoved by NA graphics ($300 cost for Buna-N rubber) and wired the press to our 220 electric. The motor works fine and the press will feed paper, but we have not actually printed on it. Could be used for printing or die-cutting. It is a great old press.
Also included with the press: an extra set of arms, brand new rollers, old rollers and box of pre-cut tympan sheets. Press is located on ground level with garage door access. Very easy to move and load. Local rigging service can be arranged to help you load. Please inquire for details.
10x15 C+P press with Kluge feeder / Mfg'd 1926 / $2500 -- PHOTOS SOON!
We have been using this press monthly to print large runs of our greeting cards and invitations with heaver ink coverage. It has black Buna-N rollers in perfect condition with the add-on ossillating metal roller for fantastic ink coverage. The variable speed 220 motor works great and we repacked the compression cylinder two years ago so the suction is strong and will handle heavy stocks such as Lettra and chipboard like a champ. Start printing tomorrow with this press! Buy the composing station below and you will have everything you need to lock up a job and print. You can also hand-feed on this press by flipping up the feeder (makeready mode). Lots of extras with the press. Also included: new suckers in various sizes, various tongue sizes, pre-cut tympan, side guides, three McGill’s gauge pins, six metal chases, original feeder manual and parts books, extra delivery arm, press packing, and everything you need to print. Press #C71308 / Kluge #101208
