Chandler and Price 8x12

Advertising this for a friend in Staten Island.
Old style C&P 8x12 press. Motorized 110volt. Nice condition. Fully operational. Old style fancy cast flywheel.
At the moment press will need some dismantling to remove it from basement. Mechanic is scheduled for this Friday to start breakdown. Five steps from basement to outside street level.
Ink disc does not turn with each impression…I believe pawl is missing. Pulley to motor is wood and not metal as I believe original was. Does not look like press ever had or can be easily outfitted with treadle. Has 2 nice small work tables attached.
Also remaining in shop:
Various cans of ink
2 Composing sticks
12 Full size type drawers (no type)
Small marble composing stone
Large slate composing stone
Small amount of old style quoins and keys
Type cabinet exterior (no drawers)
Old style (open) type cabinet (no drawers)

Any reasonable offer takes any or all.
Sorry pickup only in Staten Island.

Photos and video of press available upon request as well as photos of other items. Time is of the essence to remove these items and save them from the dump!!
