Vandercook 219AB Power Proof Press, All original

Vandercook 219AB Power Proof Press, original condition, purchased from original owner; press installed new from Vandercook in the 1950’s and in original location since new.

NOTE: Additional Pictures will be posted soon.

1954 model. Press has adjustable bed, power carriage (can be converted to manual if desired) with short and long travel, inking carriage with decent rollers, wood feed tables and lockup bar/dead bar. No rust, well-maintained machine, just dusty from sitting. Press was kept in a climate/controlled environment and was used in a typesetting house for its entire life.

Maximum sheet size is 18.75” x 28” with a maximum form of 18” x 24”, according to Vandercook specs. Bed is adjustable within a .240” range.

Press has a footprint of about 3’ x 10’ but some parts may be removed to shorten the length for moving. Weight is about 2,700 lbs.

This is a very nice press with similar capability of the Universal III.

I have listed the press previously and have lowered the price as I need to remove it along with some other items. Asking $4,995 or best reasonable offer, as-is, loaded onto truck or trailer; shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. I am, however, glad to assist with shipping arrangements for buyer, most likely by enclosed flatbed. I do get freight rates at discount.

Please contact me if interested in the press or if you have further questions.

I also have a variety of other presses, including Nolan, Vandercook, Challenge, Poco and Showcard units, as well as grooved type and small platen presses.

Thanks for looking!
