Kelsey Excelsior 5x8 tabletop press w/ type, chase & more!


I bought this Kelsey Excelsior 5x8 tabletop press a few years ago, but never have had the time to use.

I tried to use the picture uploader on this post, but I’m not sure it worked. Here’s a google drive link to photos of the press and typecase:

Here are some details:

- I bought new rollers and trucks for it.
- There are several short California style typecase drawers of type several of which are a script and a few others (I think) more of a serif font.
- 2 chases, though one has a crack going through it.
- A small amount of furniture is included. Some of it odd wood pieces, others of a metal make.
- Some spacing material.
- The manual for the press is also included.

I am absolutely willing to negotiate the price, but think since this makes for a great starter kit that $1,200 is reasonable. Again, I am flexible on the price.

If you want only the press, I would be happy to ship it, otherwise I think it will have to be picked up, in Brooklyn, New York.

If interested or have questions, please email me at [email protected].

Thanks! & Happy Printing!
