Kelsey 5 x 8 excelsior (side operation) PLUS type, etc.

*Click on link below to view pictures of press)

I am selling my Kelsey 5 x 8 Tabletop Press and all the extra equipment. It has an ergonomic stirrup-style handle with side operation, which is a desired and rare feature. This is not only more comfortable, but also creates a more powerful stroke, producing deeper/sharper impressions and makes it well suited for die-cutting. It includes 2 black rollers that have not been used, 4 chases, brand new type, used type in drawers, plus much more.

A small print shop closed and I bought a lot of the equipment in hopes of starting a letterpress business. That didn’t happen, as I am a full time teacher and have a toddler. Perhaps I’ll give it a try again down the road! :) I need to clear out the garage, as I have many projects and a small invitation business. My husband says it ALL has to go.

It is in good working order. I have two more drawers of type not shown in the picture. I am located in Ormond Beach, FL. You can pick it up or I can wrap each drawer with heavy plastic and put everything on a pallet. The dimensions are 32L x 32W x 17H. Everything fits on a standard size pallet. We use and if you have a business it will cut down on cost, as we can send the pallet from our business to yours.

Asking $1000.00 for everything.
