Wear on a C & P 8 x 12…

If you grab the platen on an 8 x 12 and try to rotate it a bit and it moves…

What exactly does that show?


How much could it be able to rotate before you would consider the press not worth using?

Maybe 1/16” or 1/8” you could get away with after that your impression could become blurred. Dick G.

The platen will rock a bit when open—it should be stiff at the closed position.
