Mystery Press

Our son discovered a platen press sitting out in the rain at a fruit orchard in the mountains near Leavenworth, WA. He took a couple of photos, and sent them to us. We’ve never heard of this sort of press before, and couldn’t find it referenced in our guide to presses by James Moran. Does anyone know anything about it?

Possibly the “Dauntless” printing press or “New Champion”.

Suggest you also read this link on Howard Iron Works site:

I believe it may be a Samson model.
