The Book

Vandercook Presses: Maintenance, History and Resources
3rd Edition by Paul Moxon

This is the essential Vandercook reference book based on Paul Moxon’s popular “Vandercook Maintenance” workshops, with notes on significant models and competing presses. This edition is thoroughly revised with more than one hundred additional drawings, photographs, and data tables.

“Sections on how to repair your press will alone pay for the cost of the book over and over again….. An absolute must for the professional library, and the crème de la crème of press manuals.”

Gerald Lange, from the Foreword to the second edition
