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 turned smoothly by the handle. Each press comes with a printing plate made from a zinc plated steel sheet which is screwed to plywood and moves accurately through the press on guided rollers. This is a friction driven press - 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. Please email or call for further info. We have the geared version in our studio if you would like to come and try.  These presses are constantly developed and from time to time and engineering improvements are made.
