If given the chance, would you prefer: Challenge Proof Press Model 1418E or 1926 Vandercook Model 21 Roller Series ???

1 thought on “Challenge vs. Vandercook Proof Press”

  1. Both are better suited to proofing or printmaking than short run production printing.

    The Challenge has a reciprocating bed, but lacks cylinder grippers and an inking assembly. The Vandercook has a stationery bed and also lacks cylinder grippers, but if complete has a separate inking carriage.

    Bed-mounted sheet grippers or a frisket could be rigged for either.

    Condition may be the over-riding factor. Worn bed and rails on the Challenge could be fabricated much easier than the Vandercook.
