Restored 1924 Chandler and Price 10x15 Letterpress

Hello There!

We have for sale a restored 1924 Chandler and Price New Style 10x15 Letterpress Printer. Asking $1800 for this is a floor-model printing machine capable of the deep impressions you may see online. It was saved from a salvage yard, stripped down, cleaned (Every nut, bold, thread and screw), painted and reassembled. The wood was left original to the press. It’s very rare to get a press this clean, let alone one that isn’t covered in oil, dust and rust.

Right now, it is on two thick skids of wood, without all the bits and pieces mounted for purposes of moving. It is located in Ashtabula, Ohio. You would be responsible for pickup and moving it. For those who have moved presses like these, it is in a ground-level garage on good smooth concrete, so pickup would be very easy - roll it onto a trailer!

Included with this, is the motor, motor mount and the very rare Humbolt Clutch System. This enables you to run the motor at full speed (Good for the cooling of the motor) and regulate the speed of the press with a movement of a lever. It will need mounted, however, as it is currently off the press.

The rollers have not been replaced, and it will need new Rollers. I can offer suggestions of where to purchase them. There are two cores which the press came with, that are in good condition - they would simply need new rollers applied OR you can purchase three new rollers and cores.

Aside from the rollers, it is ready to print! Slight adjustments may be needed after moving, so the platen may need to be adjusted once in it’s new home.

Please contact me with any questions you may have and I’ll be happy to answer them - Preferred method of contact is email initially as I have an easier time responding to emails rather than phone calls with my schedule.

This is a first come-first serve sale, as it needs to be moved and the sooner the better.
