Heidelberg Windmill 10x15 - $7840

Up for sale is our fabulous 1969 Heidelberg 10x15 Windmill, w/ foil attachment.

We have owned this press for about 2 years, and it has been our primary press for all of our production needs in that time. We run wedding work, stationery jobs, business cards, and all manner of custom work on this press.

We are downsizing our operation and changing our creative setup, so now this press can be yours!

This is the perfect press for all your production needs, including printing, scoring, die-cutting, numbering, and foil stamping.

Here are the details on the press:

Model: Heidelberg Windmill Platen Press, Redball, 10” x 15”

Features: Lockout rollers (allows instant change to scoring, diecutting, blind impression, foil, etc) no roller removal needed
*Features: Factory foil stamping unit. Includes entire roll up assembly and heat control currently attached to press. also includes honeycomb base and plug ins.

*Foil stamping honeycomb base and plug ins

*Foil unit came with the press but I have never used it. Previous owner never used it. As far as know everything works and is included and present, and more or less ready to go, but I can make no promise on the foil unit based on personal experience. Heat unit will need to be wired separately to the wall.

Minor details: this press may need new form rollers sooner than later. The ones on the press that we have been using the print with good results, but it may be time to replace soon.
Also, this press is lacking the part know as the bearing clamp, which either clamps or removes the bearings on the rollers, in the event of a roller change. It’s a handy part to have.

The press is currently located in our studio in San Anselmo, CA. It can be viewed by appointment and is plugged into power for inspection.

Buyers are responsible for moving costs and arrangements, however we are happy to recommend local movers that we have used previously. We are selling our Vandercook, and moving a press that was on loan to us as well, and we could attempt to move them all with the same movers on the same day for some savings to everyone.

We are happy to answer any questions about the press and give advice or details on running and using the Heidelberg Windmill. We would love to find this press a good home where it can be appreciated for decades to come.

Thank you.
