Lightening The Load

I’ve been collecting/hoarding since the mid 1980s and now I’ve come to the time in my life where I need to get rid of some stuff, actually lots of stuff. I’m offering many presses and other printing equipment at, what I think, are reasonable prices. I’m even offering some free stuff. If you don’t like my prices, make me an offer. I will not ship; you’re gonna have to come get this stuff. I’m located just outside of Little Rock, AR, 22 miles off Interstate 40. Everything is at ground level and I have a forklift. Getting a semi-truck to my warehouse is tricky but anything smaller is not a problem. So here it begins:

Later Model Hoe Washington iron hand press. Serial number 6063. Platen is 20″ x 26″. It does not have corner irons or tympan and frisket. Otherwise it’s in good shape. $3500.

22 1/2″ x 33″. Press is complete with tympan, frisket and chase. The tympan and frisket are home-made, not original and need to be recovered. $4000.
