Re: Looking for a press

We currently make three standard sizes of presses, as well as custom
sizes.  Our small standard press is about 10 x 14 (outside measurement)
with over 6" of daylight and a usable area of 10" x 11". The medium press
measures 12" x 16" (outside measurement) with 8" of daylight and a usable
space of 12" x 13". The large standard press is 14 x 20 (outside
measurement) with 10" of daylight and a usable space of 14" x 16".

The presses are made from hard maple, with press plates of 13 ply Finland
birch plywood.  The large press has an 8-inch aluminum hand wheel (7" on
the smaller presses)  on top of the press to raise and lower the plate
via a 3/4" thick screw rod (5/8" for the smaller presses).  The head
plate (which takes the strain when you screw the press down) is 1 3/4 "
thick hard maple. It is held in place by  5/8" threaded rod sheathed in
EMT tubing (1/2" for the smaller press). Each press is finished and waxed
by hand to a satin smoothness.  Presses ship with a pair of masonite
press boards and a rubber mat.

The large press is $395.  The medium press is $265. The small press is
$195. These prices do not include shipping.  Packing and shipping  (UPS
ground) runs about $30 for the small press depending on the shipped-to
zone - it weighs about 25 pounds as shipped.   Shipping for the large
press is about $55.

 A fourth size, 16" x 24" is considered to be standard but is not
currently a stocked item and must be ordered as custom. It has 16" x 20"
of usable plate area, 12" of daylight , and weighs about 65 pounds before
packaging. This press sells for $525 plus shipping and handling.

Back ordered and custom ordered presses will be begun when ordered and
shipped when completed and paid in full. Allow two weeks for completion
and another week for shipping (UPS).

We are always happy to talk about our presses, so if you have questions,
please contact us.
