This press can be used for a variety of printmaking methods both relief and intaglio. The frame is made from cast aluminium and fitted with two 80mm diameter steel rollers. Variable pressure can be applied evenly to the upper roller from each end, and the lower roller is easily turned by the handle due to the gears. Each press comes with a printing plate made from 2.5mm thick zinc plated steel sheet which is screwed to plywood and moves accurately through the press on guided rollers. If using with lino or any plate that is more than 1mm thick it is helpful to have runners (lengths of lino or wood the same height) - to ensure even pressure. Pressforce approximately 1000kg. Comes with one blanket.
