Hello! I recently acquired a Golding Jobber from 1881. And I’m afraid the more I examine it. I think it was well used and abused. It appears to have been taken apart at least 2 times for painting. Some of the bolts and connections are loose and the Delivery Tray Brackets/roller holders have the screws in 2 different directions. I was wondering if someone could please post or send me some close up photos of another jobber to use as a reference. Thank you!

If you put Golding jobber into Google images, you will get many, many pictures.
If none of those help, you could contact John Falstrom, who is the “go-to” guy for all things Golding. Here is his website:
Smarty pants. I need close ups. Thank you for John’s Info.
I underestimated you, I apologize.
Ha! This Jobber will be the 4th “little project” of restoration I have done. Then on to the Beast C&P Guillotine!
We’ve got a 1915 Jobber No. 7. Golding did make loads of changes over the years, but I can provide photos of our machine if you think it would help. What, specifically, did you need shots of? Just the feedboard brackets?
I should say in advance that the screws fixing the boards to the brackets on our press are not originals (the bolts holding the brackets to the press are). The feedboards were already dismantled (and the screws lost) when we bought the press. I did use antique screws I had squirreled away to replace them, though, so the replacements should be very close to the originals.
Apologies for the double post. The site gave an error that made me think it hadn’t posted.
