Press For Sale:David Driesbach's custom-built intaglio press. ($4000 plus shipping from Villa Park, Illinois.)This press was assembled by Mike Bunch who has created presses for Tandem Press among others. The press has a 26 x 44 inch bed. Built to run on household current the electric motor runs smoothly, the press has heavier than normal bearings and is geared to run slowly. Safety features include two safety-stops, and guards to prevent fingers going under the top roller. In spite of its size, this is a "table press." It is lighter than a unified press, and provides the opportunity to design a dual purpose storage area beneath the bed.
