Letterpress Rare Lightening Jobber


This rare Lightening Jobber was one of only 12 or 13 models built by John H. Jones of Palmyra New York between 1896 and 1903.

Very few of these presses are still around today. This platen press is a good bit lighter than the similar size Chandler and Price platen presses we have on the floor. The reconditioned press is complete and available for sale.

This gorgeous letterpress was reconditioned by Red Onion Press in GA. It is in pristine condition. This is the before and after photo of the press. More photos are available.


I had many of big plans for this press but then life happens…it deserves to be used and loved!
