SMZ [ShiMiZu]

While traveling in Japan I ran across two of these little vander-like presses. This one was at one of Tokyo’s 6 still-functioning typefoundries, the other was at the Toppan Museum [I can’t post pictures of it because they said so]. Anyways, here’s some pictures for your amusement & edification. Let me know if you have any questions

Such a short bed for a power carriage and auto sheet delivery. Can you find out how many of these are still out there? Did they make a hand cranked model? Maybe Japan has SHiMiZu fanatics like us.
