    – Old Emerson motor w/ Belt (motor was working when I purchased press, but removed it to fit press with a treadle).

    I purchased this press and many of the extras from a man who?s family owned a type casting company in Indiana in October 2012. The original owner gifted it to him in the 70?s after closing his print shop. I?ve and have done a ton of clean up, including rust removal and steam pressure washing.

    My husband and I had every intention of completely restoring the press and moving move the press into to my stationery studio. However, I am now six months pregnant, and my plans have changed. I?ve closed my studio and plan to work from my home when the baby arrives. I?m also afraid that I will not have time to devote to printing. Thus, we would like to see this beautiful piece of history go to someone who will put it to use.

    Asking price $2,800
