Miehle V50 (1953)

Many thanks to Matt Henderson of Henderson Printing, Richmond, Virginia, USA for sending in this video of his 1953 vintage Miehle V50 press in action.

Matt is looking to preserve printing machine manufacturers' logos from the past. He is looking for good quality scans so that he can turn them into vector artwork. Matt's contact details are on his website (link above) if anyone can help him on this project.

Matt's Miehle is normally operated by his two teenage daughters. He uses it for perforating, scoring, sequentially numbered forms and tickets, and die cutting.

Here it can be seen crash printing a 5 part edge glued carbonless form.
