Kobold Platen adjustments

Does anyone out there have experience with a German (Leipzig) built Kobold parallel approach treadle operated platen. It has the swan neck method of closing the platen and adjuster bolts below that.

It prints well, but I need to tweak it a little, and dont want to loose what I’ve got anyway.

HI
I have a Kobold parallel approach platen. It is a Victoria Heidenau. I have some information, that I received with the press. If it’s any good to you I can e-mail it over.
Let me know and I’ll get it sorted.

Does anyone have ‘Kawi Sortierhexe’ German made, or maybe German-Swiss, a device rather like a miniature mat slide tower, for sorting out pied spacing from pie, using vibration.

The late and regretted Georg Kraus from the Preu├čissches Bleisatzmagazin had one for sale. He did show it to me and it looked fantastic. I don’t know what happened to it when he died, did the people who took over sell it, or is it still there?
