Vandercook No. 1 (1930s proofing press) $500

This is for a Vandercook No. 1. It can be (and is) disassembled for moving purposes, which is good because it’s over 200 lbs. all together.

It’s a functional printing press which has been used recently but has been dormant for the past year. We are moving and have access to a few other presses that serve our needs better, so we have decided to sell this one.

It could use a little cleaning up, but you’ll have it up and running in no time.

Here’s a description from the Vandercook catalog (1935ish).
