Kelsey 5X8 press in great condition with all the extras!

For sale is a 5X8 Kelsey tabletop printing press in like-new condition, along with all the extras you need to start printing today (except the type)! I purchased the press from a museum collector. It was new/in-box when he found it and barely used when it came to me. This has been my back-up press and has been used, but only occassionally, over the past 2 years—just enough to know it prints great! I purchased new rollers and trucks for this press about a year ago. The press comes with these extras:

3 chases
6 lock-up quoins with key
guage pins
composing stone (not shown in photo but included)
galley tray
composing stick
type ruler
Kelsey lead/slug cutter
lots of leads, various sizes
black ink (has been in cold garage, but should still work once in a warmer climate)
ink knife
block for levelling type
lots of precut tympan sheets
several sheets of pressboard

Price for everything listed/shown is $895 firm.

I’m in the final phase of liquidating my printing workshop and have lots of other items to post, most for the small-scale (ie., not a lot of space) printer.

This is a great opportunity to get started printing or add to your own shop. Check my other adds, as well! Items are in my garage in Pepperell, MA. Easy-access for pickup.
