I am looking to sell my Challenge Style K proof press. Its equivalent to the Vandercook SP-15 in size and quality. The main difference is the Vandercook SP has auto inking and the Challenge has manual inking on the rollers. Also, the bed moves instead of the cylinder which is kind of nice for long runs since you can stay stationery. The parts are pretty much interchangable with most standard Vandercook models.
The rollers are ok, and probably have 6 months of good life in them. I can have them re-rolled with Denny from Advanced if you wanted. I will include this in the price.
This is the perfect opportunity for someone to get Vandercook quality, but at less then half the price.
Its a great press, but we just don’t use it enough to justify keeping it.
Here is a guide for information:http://letterpresscommons.com/files/2013/02/ChallengeProofPresses.pdf
I am asking $5,500 obo. I have attached some pictures. If you would like to see more pictures, a video or come by our shop to check out the machine let me know. We are located in Alexandria, VA.
If you have any questions, please let me know.

Is your Challenge proof press still available?
Hi Pete, is this press still available?
I was just inquiring in regards of the Proof Press you posted for sale, Do you still have it for sale? I see that it was some time ago that you posted this, but figured it never hurts to ask!
Thanks for your time,
