Described by the seller as Adana's ultimate press:

Quote
Adana P71 letterpress printing machine: adana`s ultimate press, based on their TP48 but more streamlined and compact,with totally enclosed single phase 1/4 horsepower motor and speed control at front of press and ink duct at rear of machine.
Machine is in very good condition,it has had very little use during the 30 years it has been in posession, it weighs 148 kg, and can be dismantled into 2 main parts which could easily be moved by two people in a small van or estate car.

included are 2 new rubber rollers with runners,a third can be fitted and i have the spindle and runners but needs recovering, however, the machine works very well with just 2 rollers and you would only need the third for a heavy form,vibrator roller also rubber covered.
2 chases
1 new tin of ink black
1 box of miscellaneous blocks
small quantity of wood furniture and quains
small quantity of paper and card
original instructions manual

BUYER MUST ARRANGE COLLECTION FROM CHELTENHAM< GLOUCESTERSHIRE AT THEIR EXPENSE


Despite the price appearing in US Dolars, UK only.

The machine eventually sold for 720. The seller started at 650. Sounds like a bargain!
