Line-O-Scribe Presses, Older Style, Good Starter Presses

Older style Line-O-Scribe Presses, both are pre-Morgan units, approximately 11 x 17 form area, adjustable impression, storage drawer underneath (both have some odd and end type) and a frisket system. A small brayer is included with each unit.

These appear to have a “bed plate” for packing underneath type. Not 100% sure if a galley height press but with adjustable impression I am sure it could handle galleys if desired.

Both of these units came from small retail stores and, most likely, sat for many years unused. These originated out east in New York and Pennsylvania.

I normally purchase and rebuild the newer style Line-O-Scribe presses with grippers and some with inking systems. However, if you are looking for a very reasonably priced starter press with a good working area, this is an ideal unit that just needs some elbow grease and TLC.

These style presses are simply constructed and are easy to work on, dismantle, paint, clean, etc. and are well made.

Asking $695 each plus shipping or $1,295 for the pair. I can prepare the press for shipment and make all shipping arrangements for buyer at discount.

I am also doing a good bit of travel between Missouri and Indiana near the Chicago area. I would be open to bringing these along if logistics would work out to meet.

I also have Nolan, Challenge and Showcard presses as well as a Hohner with adjustable impression and the newer style Line-O-Scribes. I also have several Vandercook model “0” presses. Custom rebuilding of Chandler and Price Pilot Presses available.

Please contact me if interested in the press or if you have further questions. Thanks for looking!
