Closing down Typesetting business - South Africa

I have a complete Letterpress (Hot-Metal) Typesetting business for sale in Johannesburg, South Africa.

I had hoped for a group or institution to purchase the bulk of the collection to start a studio or something. This has not materialised so I am selling off in parts. Partial lists have been posted on the FaceBook page

If you share any of the posts you are in line for good discounts.

I will consider shipping internationally on a case by case basis.

Check out the web page at
and some of the listings at my shop

There is a lot more equipment for sale. What you would expect from a place that has been operating since 43 years ago at the same location. If there were to be just a little bit of interest (even the occasional email) I would take the time to itemise some of the smaller items.
