Got a call from Jimmy:
Jimmy called me from Garfield, NJ (quite near to Manhattan, NYC) to
tell me that
he's looking or good homes for his entire letterpress operation. It has
been used for job printing as well as publishing a weekly newspaper. He
has 4 Windmills, a Kelly "C" 23x35" flatbed cylinder press, a Dexter
Folder, a working Model #8 Linotype, mats, lead, hand type and wood
He just wants to find good homes for all of his equipment, and avoid
having to send it to the scrap yard. He would like to sell the
Heidelbergs, and may have already sold all of the type, but would
be will to give the working Linotype and Kelly Press to anyone who has
an interest in preserving and using them...
We will visit again and continue to inventory the collection and post
everything here. Please come back to see the full selection of
treasures to be rescued.
