Historically significant A B Taylor Hat Press, circa 1850 (that makes it a little older than Steve Saxe). I unearthed this beauty a while back and found time last month to get her together. The teal color is accurate along with all hardware. I stripped what little paint that remained and repainted, I also filled the bed and platen with steel based epoxy and painstakingly sanded them flat. Nothing else has been replaced or modified. There are 2 small corners of the bed casting that look to be cracked off, however there is very little info and but one line drawing of this press so it is difficult to ascertain what, if anything more than corners are missing. There is a #12 stamped on the pressure screw below the toggle, no other nomenclature is present. As seen in the pics part of “NEW” is missing, a casting flaw. I have yet to address the wooden handle as I have not decided what color to stain it. Entertaining offers of 5 figures.
