[This press has been sold. Thanks to all of you who inquired. 21 November 2011]

This vintage 1920’s proofing press, serial no. G2105, is in good working order with a smooth action. It has been cleaned and lubricated. The gear track and cylinder gear teeth are clean and complete. This press has a detachable feed table and includes the pin wrench. Original Hacker Mfg. metal frame cabinet comes with wooden shelves.

The bed pins have been removed on the right end to allow a galley to be slid onto it. There is a chip out of the bed casting at the bed stop that does not affect operation. Before we acquired the press in the 90’s, the crank was repaired in two spots.
