Fully rebuilt Nolan #2 Proof Press - 15” x 28”

Fully rebuilt Nolan #2 Proof Press. Very heavy-duty small presses with a large impression roller and heavy construction – great for printing or, with steel plates, some light die cutting.

Press is fully reconditioned, including bearings as needed, bed fully reground, new paint, and bed plate. Roller is trued or recovered if needed and entire unit is adjusted for type-high. The rebuilt presses are as close to factory new and will print flawlessly.

Photos are of one of the units with the optional stand showing the finished rebuild and grinding.

Specifications from Nolan allow a print area slightly smaller than the bed size – 15” x 28.5” with a bed or 15.25” x 34.5” — and overlength sheets may be printed —type or engravings may be locked onto the bed, or bed plate removed for use with galleys. This is a very versatile press and bed plate can be packed underneath or rollers adjusted to vary the impression if needed.

I have sold a few of these previously to individuals who did do some die cutting using a thinner bed plate and a plate over the stock being cut; the heavier roller will apply sufficient pressure.
I can supply different thickness bed plates as well.

I do have the matching cabinet base available, as well as dead-bars for use with the bed pins. Asking $1,995 plus shipping. Matching stand as pictured is $295. (I can crate the press and make all shipping arrangements for buyer)

Please contact me if interested in the press or if you have further questions.
