CP 205A Chase size?

I have a new to me Chandler Price 205A that needs a chase, rollers and trucks. To get the correct chase do I simply measure the greatest available distance? I have marked that “B” Or is there another point I should be measuring from. Inboard I marked “A”.

Hi David,

What you have is a Chandler and Price Pilot press. It is a very common tabletop press so you should have success if you just post a wanted ad for the chase in the Briar Press classifieds. The rollers and trucks can be sourced from NA Graphics, Todd’s Press Time, and a handful of other sources.


Also… the parts list for the press (the New Style version) is here:
