Vandercook Universal III Power Test Press

This Vandercook Universal III Power Test Press is in beautiful condition. The rollers are nearly brand new and everything on the press is SUPER CLEAN. It truly has next to no rust anywhere on the press. (see pictures) It has a very nice new wood feedboard. The power inking works perfectly.
There is however a problem with the carriage coming back to the feed board in the exact same place. It either runs to fast or too hard on the way back and often “bumps” home if that makes sense.
Paul Moxon (vandercook guru to put it mildly) has visited the press, inspected it and believes it can be an easy fix for someone willing to put in the time and effort. The carriage on the press is not running currently and needs to be adjusted/fixed to work properly. We are moving and are being forced to downsize our shop and have no choice but to sell the press as is. We are def sad to see this amazing press go, we had plans to get her running again but it’s just not in the cards for us, we are hopeful there will be someone out there who will enjoy it as much as we have.
