Is this press in good condition?

I am a beginner letterpress designer with a couple courses under my belt. I need more hands on at home, so I have decided to buy a table top press. I really want a C+P Pilot, but that’s a distant dream :)

To me, this looks like all it is missing are rollers.

Please advise if this is a smart purchase for a first time press designer.

Responses as soon as possible are preferred! :):)

Thank you!!

it looks like its all there except for rollers and roller trucks, which are not too hard to find, i think you can get them new from a few different suppliers. the kelsey press isn’t as strong a press as some out there but i’ve owned 2 for 50 years and would never sell them, one is a 5x8.
