Chandler & Price 12x18 - Craftsman Press

Behold the mighty 12x18 press!

For Sale: Chandler & Price 12x18 - Craftsman Press $500 o.b.o.

I acquired this press a few years ago but have not been able to use it. Prior to getting the press, the previous owner had gotten maintenance work done on it when the rocker arm had broken. I have tried to locate the part, ask fellow pressman, or even scrap places to try and find the part, but I’ve had no luck.

I even considered getting the rocker arm part fabricated, but with my limited knowledge of the mechanics of the press, and no schematics of the part that too was unsuccessful.

To my knowledge, all this press needs is a replacement rocker arm, some new oil, and a little shining up- and she will be back to a thing of beauty.

• 12x18 Chandler & Price Craftsman Press
• Motor (currently detached)
• Spare furniture
• Ink Rollers (needs repair)

The press currently mounted on a skid for easy pickup. The motor and a few other accessory parts are also on another skid. I should be able to utilize a nearby forklift, but buyer will have to bring a trailer or otherwise arrange transportation. I am open to shipping as long as buyer covers the cost.
