Chase Size

Based on previous feedback about this press I believe it to be some version of a Joseph Watson press. Based on the measurements I have indicated on the image, what size chase should I be looking to buy? In the final image here showing chase sizes for the various models, are the measurements given reversed from current way of expressing size? I.e. are they giving the chase length first and then the width. If so, and my press is in the list, maybe it is the “Circular” model?

For many years, in the U.K. at least, the larger dimension is seen as the width, and the smaller dimension is the height, looking down hand to view in *plan* form.

The entire Adana range, always taken as read that 3 x 2
5 x 3, 6 x 4, 8 x 5, (H.S.3) = 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, ALWAYS Inches/Imperial, and always, as above, larger figure denoting the Width.

The same applies to (seen here) Sqintani,S and Ajax, >>crude attempt at Parallel Approach.<< in table top form.!!

If all else fails, contact me via the B.P. lines of communications.!! Good Luck.
