Colt’s Armory Press


My question is how hard do you think it would be to find parts for this press? I found very little information on it. Any suggestions?

Hello Deineria,
Depending on how much is missing, you will either be able to fabricate the parts (that will be expensive!) or you will be out of luck.

I can’t see what is missing from that seller’s photos, but it looks like that press might be best kept as a die cutter.

So the missing roller assembly wouldn’t be a problem for die-cutting and embossing? Thanks for your response.

Certainly not. I have a feeling the reason they were taken off was because the press was being used expressly for that purpose. Those Colt’s Armory/Thompson/Gally presses were quite sought after by those who do die cutting work.


Ok thanks alot!!!
