Funditor Proofing press info? (UK)

Hello,

I recently acquired a Funditor Proofing press, with a bed size of 21X29 inches.

I would like to know if anyone knows anything about the company or presses, It says ‘Funditor London’ on it and i have no other info.

Ideally i would like to find someone who has one or a digram of how the rollers work so i can refurbish them and identify what i am missing.

Any info would be appreciated!

It looks like an Eickhoff press, built in Denmark. Or is it a British look-a-like? I can’t make out on the second photo what’s marked on the door. Can we have a detail of that?

Wow, well done, they look very similar indeed, here is mine from the same angle. Maybe funditor just rebadge them?

It’s very well possible that Funditor imported them and sold them under their own name. Quite a few of them around in the Netherlands and Denmark. I owned one myself years ago, but on a different base.
