"Hi Emily, (I'm a bit cofused, since I don't think C&P made a 9x13 platen.) The designation comes from the size measured on the inside of the chase. I'm betting it is either a 10x15, or 8x12. Either one is a fine machine, and…"

"Thank you! How often to you oil your press and how do you do so (if I'm wearing you out on questions, feel free to stop answering). :) I read that there are small oil holes here and there on the press? Not sure where to look for them."

Help getting my new press running

Hi ladies!! I just got my very first press, a 9x13 C&P Gordon and need some advice on getting it up and running--particularly how to clean and de-rust it, where or how to re-cover my rollers (do I need new trucks too?), and just how to use it (yeah I'm that new to this), particularly with photopolymer plates to start (I'll get into setting type soon after). Where is the best place to buy ink & how can I learn how to mix it? Is there someone near Northumberland (Central) Pennsylvania who…See More
