Sigwalt Chicago press info

I am looking at a Sigwalt press, and wondering if anyone has a list of press numbers and sizes for the Chicago style. Any info on these presses would be beneficial. I have already scoured the net and found most of the history. What sources are there for truck measurements and roller cores?

Here is a measured drawing of the rollers, cores, and trucks for a Sigwalt Ideal No. 5 (6x9)

The Chicago presses are a lot smaller than the Ideal, Are the rollers similar diameters?
