SP15 Plastic Cover Hinge and Misc Parts


Hello everyone,

New post again!

So the first photo shows some misc parts I found on the bottom pits of my No.4, I would really like to know what these parts do, or where they go. I’ve confirmed that that pin is not in fact an MR-110 pin, I’ve compared them.

The second two photos show the support for the plastic cover for an SP15, it came inside of the paper cabinet, which I noticed because I looked at photos of other SP15s, and realized is that. I only have 1, though, so I might make the other one. I would just like to know what else I’m missing for it to work, and how it connects to the plastic cover, so I’d REALLY appreciate if someone has the plastic cover to be kind enough to take some detailed photos of that for me to get a better idea.

How does a pink, orange, green or yellow acrylic sound to you for a plastic cover? :)

    Hi Jonathan, I don’t think that might be an issue in my shop. Thanks for the thought, though.

    Dafi, that color cover looks pretty cool I think, but yeah, trying to see the ink might be an issue. I’ll give it some more thought. Thanks for the link, though.

    Here I send you a link to a FAG that has been equipped with a Neon Yellow dust cover. But personally I’d prefer a clear one to see what I’m working with – as Paul already mentioned…

    (Scroll down to the second press, “Swiss Proof 52 Graphos, Uster”)

    if your press is near bright light in Mexico, maybe a perspex/acrylc that filters out UV to protect rollers might be a factor????

    This is great info, Paul, thanks a lot.
    I know for a fact I’m not missing the lift rod. I will stick that brass thumb back where it belongs.
    And I will look at my manual and see if I can figure out what else I need to make it work.
    You are right, I hadn’t thought about being able to see the ink. But like you say, this colors are very appealing. Haha. Maybe I’ll choose to live with lifting the dust cover to check my ink in sacrifice for a hot color cover.

    Photo 1: I don’t recognize the pair of bars, the short rod looks like a cut-off end of the lift rod (MR-169), but brass thumb screw fastens the box under the ink drum on a No. 4.

    Photo 2 & 3: show a dust cover bracket (X-27640 R.H.) for an SP15. Cover Holders. See manual sheet 288-B.

    A clear dust cover is better to see the ink, but these colors are muy caliente.
