Information on Laguna Etching Press

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge on etching presses from the Laguna Etching Press Co. I’m looking at purchasing a lightly used model no. 1830, which is fairly small. Do Laguna presses have good pressure? Does it work well for relief prints? Just looking for any kind of information to inform my decision.

A few years back I had a larger Laguna Etching Press and printed many linoleum and wood blocks with it. The quality of the press was great and I am sure that the smaller size press would get the job done. It is an etching press make sure that the top roller will raise high enough to get your relief print under it. —Rb

Thanks byarts, I’m definitely getting the press!
