has been using this press for some light occasional
die-cutting - one job for one client - but not
enough to be concerned about any wear problems.
Here's the text of the email I received along with the
photos posted on this page:
"It was moved in here back in the early 1990's from a sale by my
ex-father-in-law, who purchased the equipment from the Lutheran Home here in Belle Plaine. They used to run their own print shop, but sold all that out to him. He opened up his own print shop and then sold it to me back in 1999.
This press comes equipped with a crank on the main shaft,
making it a good candidate for treadle power. A treadle
can be had for $150- 200 and can be installed in minutes.
Contact us for details. - Alan
I've been using the machine specifically for one client and one
client only, as I have an electric machine that perfs, numbers and scores a lot faster than this one did. I only used it to do a specific die cut for a law service company. I still have that customer, but he no longer needs this service so I no longer use the equipment.
I would appreciate if you could post this and see what we could do to find it a good home. Again, I don't want to scrap the machine. It's in too great of shape for that and I know someone out there would enjoy working
