Book binding, etching press and letter press equipment:

All of this equipment is functional and was used by a local artist up until a few years ago. I bought all of this together along with some lithography equipment.

$950.00 Book press:
83 " tall by 36" wide and 22" deep. The top plate is 21" X 29".
George H. Sanborn & Sons, New York & Chicago. Standard Machinery Co. Mystic River Ct.
Press in excellent condition, moves smoothly with large bronze bearing/nut. The press comes with a series of stands to adjust to different heights of work. The screw moves up out of the top as it turns to the working height is more like 8'. The unit is presently on its side on a dolly. I believe it weighs about 600 pounds.

$3500.00 Washington Hoe Letter Press
R. Hoe & Co. New York No. 3644
74" tall by 37" wide by 39" deep. The top plate is 28" X 22 " the bottom plate is 24" X 31" with a 2 page steel frame --each page opening measures 12 " by 21 "
Letter press is in solid working condition, this press is a piece of history and a working tool. It comes complete and ready to print. It is presently broken down for transport.

$600.00 Levigator -- stone polisher
This machine mounts on the wall and can be raised or lowered with the crank handle at the top -- very exactly. The arm swings out to a maximum of 54" -- and moved over the stone extremely level. This is for polishing a stone flat. It has been used to resurface lithography stones. The tool comes with two barrels of grit.

$1500.00 Lithography press
This is disassembled and can be easily moved (unlike most of this equipment). It comes with a 20" X 24" stone and levigator (for cleaning image off of stone). The roller is 23" wide and the bed is 24" X 30"

Skiving machine:
Fortuna Skiving machine with 2 additional new blades. Machine comes mounted with motor and belt in working condition. This is for tooling leather for book binding.
