Hampson and Betteridge Book Press

Overall dimensions including stand: 104w x 65d x 139h Platen size: 79x53cm

The press is in good working condition and has been in use for conservation projects up until recently. It is mounted on a low wooden stand that allows it to be lifted with a set of fork trucks.

The press is for collection only and will require a vehicle with tail lift to load it.

The press was kindly gifted to me to aid improving our selection of woodtype and as I said I am open to all reasonable offers or to exchange for wood type (preferably complete founts.)
