1902 C&P Oldstyle: Feedboard measurements

Hello! I have been working on opening up my letterpress studio and fixing up my 1902 C&P Oldstyle. I have tried to research feedboard measurements for this press style, but have had no such luck.

I am wanting to build it with my woodworking friend, but I am not sure what the measurements are or how the feedboard works.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

What size is the press? Feedboard size will vary with machine size.

Michael—your shop is dreamy to me!

Glad you liked my shop. My C&P is a 7x11. Sorry I can’t help with the feedboard dimensions for your 10x15.

Someone sent me these dimensions for a C&P 10x15 feedboard set:

Upper (feed) board is 15”x12”;
Lower(delivery) board is 21-1/2” x 12”
