Vandercook SP15, Challenge Cutter, Ink, Boxcar Base, etc.

Hello Printers! The time has come to find a new loving home for my letterpress printshop.


Vandercook SP15 Proof Press - manual rollers, rubber rollers in excellent shape (resurfaced in 2006), movable lock-up bar.

Challenge Guillotine Manual Paper Cutter - stand and second blade included. NOTE: this equipment is missing the safety latch that is meant to keep both hands occupied while the blade is lowering. I am selling AS IS. Buyer will agree in writing that they were advised of this defect before sale, and that keeping their appendages attached to their body is their own responsibility, and failure to do so has nothing to do with me. (It functions perfectly well without it, it is a safety feature only).

Ink: Mostly VanSon rubber based (plus tack reducer, putz pom)

Paper: approx 100 sheets of 22 x 30 Lettra 110 lb, Fluorescent White. Other various high-end leftovers.

Envelopes: Mostly 4Bar from WasteNotPaper, many colours, and Crane (matches Lettra).

Boxcar 9 x 12 Aluminum Base (for use with photopolymer plates)

Etc: everything else you will need to set up your little operation (extra tympan paper, various wooden furniture, roller gauge, oil, ink knives, inking glass, complete list to be compiled).

I am located near Toronto. I would be happy to deliver all within a reasonable radius, or perhaps further if you live somewhere particularly interesting; to be discussed (additional cost may be involved, ie van rental and fuel). I’ve moved it all a few times now, I’m starting to get the hang of it. If shipping is required, this cost will be in addition to selling price.

Asking price as a complete package, all in: $12,000

Photos available (as soon as I can get my fancy-pants camera to play nicely with my outdated computer.)
