Model # on Craftsmen 5”x8”

Here goes—I just got a 5”x8” Craftsmen (Boston). It needs some TLC but I can’t seem to find the model number on this press. I think it’s an Imperial but would like to be sure prior to researching the crap out of this thing. Any info would be much appreciated.

“Researching the crap out of this thing” is probably the best way to find out what you have.

Your little 5x8 is called an Imperial. You can look at a sales brochure here. If I can help you in any way, let me know. You can also contact Sherwin Marks at Craftsmen Machinery Co
