Repairing an Albion hand press

Some time ago someone posted information about having an Albion press they wanted to restore, but it was missing the bar/toggle/chill mechanism. I don’t now remember if it was posted on BP or elsewhere, and I believe the poster was from Australia. Now there is an auction at

for what appears to be the complete impression assembly (disassembled) but it is not stated from what manufacturer’s press or what size press the parts are from. If someone is looking for an Albion impression assembly cheap, there it is. It may be possible to adapt it to an Albion larger than a table-top model.
