Kelsey 5x8, typecase and accessories

Selling a working Kelsey 5x8 tabletop press in great shape with all necessary equipment and accessories to get you started. Press rollers were recovered in 2005 but have hardly been used (stored very carefully). Quoins, quoin key, leading, spacing, composition stick, composing stone, black ink and ink knife, furniture all included.

Also for sale, either together with the press or separately, a beautiful oak Hamilton type case, includes a drawer of 14pt Cheltenham Wide and one of 18pt Cheltenham Wide. Also for sale is a wooden furniture case. Will throw in a few odds and ends of cuts and decorations as well.

This is a great package to get you started with letterpress. I love this press but must downsize for a cross-country move.

All equipment is located in Oregon City, OR, on ground floor with very easy access. I prefer a local buyer who can come pick everything up, but I could also arrange to deliver it to you if you are in the Portland/Salem area and don’t have a vehicle.

Asking $1350 for everything, cash or cashier’s check. Will sell type case separately for $350.

Please email with any questions, clarifications, or requests for more detailed photos. See link within my ad for more pictures of the equipment. Thank you!
