Vandercook No. 3 and misc. letterpress

My wife and I am trying to downsize our studio and we have a Vandercook No. 3 for sale, along with a variety of Vandercook parts and other letterpress supplies. The press has a newly manufactured feed board with two slots for book work, and a gripper bar lever.
