    condition: good
    make / manufacturer: Chandler & Price
    model name / number: Pilot 6.5 x 10
    Selling as a set.

    Old Style Chandler & Price 6.5 x 10″ press. It pre-dates C&P serial numbers; manufactured Cir. 1880-1910. In good working order and has been stored at my studio high and dry. I’m a artist that purchased this on a fabulous whim a few years ago and enjoyed restoring it. I specifically chose not to repaint it; she is clean and well oiled.

    It deserves a studio or letterpress hobbyist who wants the durability and legendary quality of a C&;P.

    I replaced the rollers, trucks, roller springs, and the chase (which was missing when I purchased it). I took off a century of gunky motor oil and rust. Based on the condition when I purchased it, it may have been used in a school to teach letterpress.

    What you’ll get:
    – An 6.5 x 10″ Old Style C&P press
    – New rollers
    – New roller trucks
    – Hi-speed quoin key and 2 quoins
    – Counter
    – Furniture and Reglets
    – Type High gauge
    – Pica ruler
    – 20 compete sets of type/font
    – Six 7.5 x 15.5″ California job cases – no cabinet
    – Five 16.5 x 21.75″ California job cases – no cabinet
    – Eight 16.5 x 32.5 California job cases – no cabinet
    – 3 brand new books on letterpress: “Letterpress Printing” by Paul Maravelas, “General Printing” by Cleeton,
    Pitkin and Cornwell, and “A 21st-century guide to the Leterpress Business ” by Marty Brown (which has
    some practical tips on tweaking the platen height and general press maintenance).

    Selling as a set only. Cash. You pick-up.
