The press is located in a residential garage (two-car garage door, ground level, on a quiet cul de sac) and can be rolled into a trailer. Removal is the responsibility of the buyer. Could possibly deliver locally for a fee. I’m able to coach you through the rigging/moving process. This press weighs a bit more than 1050 lbs—it’s on skids (estimate 1200lbs?)

This press is fun to print on, but I never do it, so it’s time to let it go to the next caretaker. Here’s a link with more model-specific information and glam shots from the original catalog: https://excelsiorpress.org/Chandler_and_Price/index.html I will remove this listing when the press is no longer available.
