Hobby letterpress shop

Up for sale is the letterpress equipment I’ve collected over the years. Recent changes in employment have made it obvious that I won’t be able to work on this any longer.

All items are clean, oiled, and well maintained. Most items are mounted on pallets and can be removed with a pallet jack. Linotype requires removal of pig feeder and distributor to fit under door. (I can assist with removal from the building)

Pictures can be provided upon request.

Major Items:
- C&P Craftsman 12x18 platen press, broken foot brake (parts available), otherwise works. Sale does not include the motor. Eight rollers included (four almost new)
- Model 5 Linotype (Late 50s vintage), works. New digital heater temperature controls, new motors (240V single phase). Boxes of spare parts, six magazines, plus many mats in boxes. Dozens of border slides and decorative mats.
- magazine rack (heavy), holds six.
- Ludlow model L - Works - Last serviced by Dave Seat ~5 years ago.
- Ludlow model L - Unknown -
- Three Ludlow cabinets w/ mats (not completely full)
- 60 case type cabinet (with type)
- Morrison printer’s saw
- Paragon guillotine paper cutter (no blade)

Would like to sell as a single lot for $8500

Buyer is responsible for all loading and transportation. I can recommend local rigger/equipment mover if needed.

Thanks for looking!!
