Type etc. for sale
Here is my list of stuff that I will bring down to the Wayzgoose, subject to interest shown and room in my car. The list has been produced in a bit of a rush and is not exhaustive and is no firm commitment as to what will actually be on show. But if any member lets me know of his or her interest I will bring the item down and we can then haggle on price.

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.)
