I’ve located a small No. 1, but will need to move it over 1,000 miles. I’m wondering if anyone can tell me if I can temporarily disassemble it for transport. I just want to take it off its cabinet to fit into my truck–and, if so, what I should expect to readjust when I get it home. Thank you!

  1. My #1 (SN 2205, made in 1925) just sits on its original base and is easily lifted off the base by two people. To protect your fingers from getting smashed, make sure the cylinder is locked in place before moving the press. I used a couple of wooden wedges, one from either side and tapped in tight with a small hammer.
