Craftsmen Imperial 5x8 tabletop press

I’m selling my 5x8 tabletop Craftsmen Imperial press in great shape, ready to print. I found that the side arm on this model increased the printing area significantly over Kelseys and other 5x8 presses.

Rollers are in excellent condition. I also have an extra chase, two Challenge quoins and some furniture. I even made a cotton dust cloth that fits over the press to keep it clean between printings.

I would guess that the press weighs about 75 lbs. Located in the Lower East Side in an elevator building for easy moving.

Image upload so won’t work, but here is a link to photos:

Asking $1600. Please feel free to reply with any questions!
