golding official no. 2 printing press

I’m selling my circa 1880’s Golding Official No. 2 printing press that I acquired several years ago. If you’re interested in letterpress printing, you know how difficult it is to find a working, tabletop press (think portable) capable of pulling nice prints with adequate impression. The press has original paint and has been reconditioned with new rollers (from Ramco)and functions very smoothly. The No. 2 has a 4” x 6” printable area and I have used it successfully for several small jobs. I believe the wood base is original and it comes with two original bronze chases marked “OFFICIAL NO. 2” on the back. Also included is a custom cut Boxcar deep relief base to use with photo polymer plates. This would be a fantastic & unforgettable Christmas gift for anyone looking to get into the world of letterpress. Press dimensions: base is 8.5” x 11”, and it stands 24.5” at the highest point. Weighs about 40-50 lbs. The press is located in Eugene, Oregon. Local pick up only. $825.00
