Lifting a Chandler & Price OS

Hi all
I need to lift my C & P up 2 inches with an engine hoist to remove the dolly it is on and to replace the skids. Where is the best place to lift it? Thanks for any help

You don’t say what size C&P, but my suggestion would be to remove the ink disc, close the press, and loop a chain carefully around the platen and bed, keeping pressure off any smaller bendable or breakable parts like the gripper mechanism or the ink disc support. Then you should be able to pick it straight up with the engine hoist.


Thanks, it’s an 8 x 12, looking it over that looked like the way to do it, I just wanted to make sure it was the best spot to lift from.
