1925 C&P Platen press

The press lives in a barn in Groton, NY (outside Ithaca). It hasn’t been used in 6 years or so, but the flywheel gets turned every time someone goes out to the barn. It has a treadle. The shaft was rebuilt about 8 years ago. Last time I used it, it worked great. Obviously, at this point, the three rollers will need to be either refurbished or replaced.

It needs a temporary/permanent home. If you can get it, you can have it for at least 3 years. After that, I’ll know if my life can accommodate such a large and heavy piece of equipment. Chances are, you’ll get to keep it.

Please email me if you are interested.
