I don’t find a press with these dimensions in the Timeline.
The base is 20 in. X 34 in.
The maximum form is 13.5 in. X 26 in.
and the press bed is 23.5 in. X 35 in.
I suspect the flat bed roller press is a variation on a 32
since it has a crank and an inking roller carriage assembly.
It looks like there were many variations on these presses.
Does anyone have any idea which press it is based upon the Serial number?
I will begin cleaning the press soon.
Is there a thread in the blog archive that provides details on cleaning these presses.
It is really dirty. Some ink has dripped from both ink slabs leaving mini stalactites of dried ink.
The inking roller carriage has the 2 cores but the composition rollers have disintegrated. The way they disintegrated tells me that they were composition. Maybe a hide glue and gelatin composition.
What size rollers are specified for these carriages. Does any one know what durometer is good for printing Collotypes?
Thank you for any help you may provide.
