If you are looking to get started in Letterpress or currently have a smaller Adana such as a 5 x 3 or Adana HS2 then the Adana 8 x 5 is perfect.
We often have Adanas for sale and currently have a second hand Adana 8x5 in full working condition. The press has been tested and prints perfectly. There is cosmetic wear and tear which has no bearing on the performance.
The press comes with a pair of brand new high definition rubber rollers, they have never seen ink. A pair of duplex roller runners. A genuine Adana 8 x 5 chase and gripper arms. The press is mounted to a hardwood base.
It comes with a selection of type and spacers to get you started and a couple of polymer blocks.
A composing stick, 4 quoins and a quoin key, galley, wood, alloy and resin furniture and leading, all relevant lengths for an 8x5 chase. A tube of ink, gauge pins and few other bits and pieces. Am 8x5 user guide and a couple of other documents will be provided.
Everything is used but in a perfectly used condition. It can be shipped for £25 to any UK mainland destination. I'm sorry we can't ship abroad. The cost for the press and extras is £530 and remember this includes a brand new pair of rollers. For more information drop me a note via the contact page
