offers this Fully Restored
Craftsmen Imperial
5x8" Table Top Side Lever
Pilot-style Platen Press



We are sorry, but this press is no longer available.
THIS PRESS HAS BEEN SOLD.


Completely restored to better than factory new condition
with brand new wooden feed board and brand new rubber rollers

 note: This press is designed using the same platen movement technique chosed by Heidelberg when they created the vernable Heidelberg Windmill. Craftsmen apparently felt that copying Heidelberg's engineering principles and using a compound side lever would give them a press that would exceed the quality, impression and overall and capability of the competing Kelsey designs of that era.
We agree.
