Super rare & clean Vandercook No. It's a cylinder press w/o gripper system - registration on bed, ideal for letterpress, linocut and woodcut printing. I added a soft offset rubber blanket to the cylinder, which makes for a pronounced and crisp impression, which can be adjusted with tympan or mylar sheets. This press is not an SP-15 and is extremely versatile due to its simplicity and heft. 968 galley height, can be raised to type high.
05" metal sheet (12"x24 sheet included). The rollers are in freshly re-cored by Ramco Rollers and press is dialed in properly. The press inks very well and prints great, super convenient to use with motorized inking & LARGE 15" x 26" BED. Press is in regular use in my letterpress studio to proof photopolymer plates.
