Polymetaal Etching Press JH-50
Bed size 50 x 100cm
Overall dimensions L: 51cm x W: 62cm x H: 35cm
95cm diameter star wheel
This press is driven directly on the lower roller.
The relatively small size of this press and the fact that the rollers are provided with ball bearings makes a gearing system unnecessary. The hard synthetic plate is guided on both sides by the solid steel frame. If the spindles are loosened the upper roller is raised by spring pressure. This results in a space appearing between the upper roller and the bed plate thus facilitating the sliding of the printing sandwich. The printing of lino and wood cuts is also possible because of the above mentioned spring pressure. It is possible to dismantle the star wheel which is secured with a key joint. Shims of leather or cardboard can be placed under the spindles thus providing more flexibility during printing. (useful while printing woodcuts that are not quite plane).
Blankets - Polymetaal recommend either a 2mm or 3mm pressed wool blanket with this press. If you want to use the press for embossing then multiple layers are required. In standard use if you use more blankets than necessary you will have to set a higher pressure for the same result. The 2mm blanket costs £24 inc. VAT (£20 excl. VAT) and the 3mm costs £33.30 inc VAT (£27.75 excl. VAT) - if you would like these added to your press order please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send you an additional invoice.
