New Press Acquired

New Book Press
New Book Press

The Guild does not often purchase equipment, but with plans for a bindery space under way and courses becoming more popular than ever, we do take the opportunity to collect good quality items when they become available.

We were approached by an older couple at one of the recent public events, and were asked if we were interested in purchasing a press. After some discussion it was decided that we would inspect it and see what it was like.

It is not often that one of this size in original condition is spotted, never mind being open to purchase. This one is approximately A3 in size, with about 80mm of daylight. It needs a little cleaning, but it is in generally good to very good condition, and will make a wonderful addiion to the bindery. It is almost too heavy for a single person to lift, and certainly not for any distance. At least it is going to a good home.
