this thirty-two incher. Actually the press hasn't been "beat up."
About fifteen years or so ago Vandercook (the old Vandercook) called
me up and asked me if I knew anyone who would want this press out my
way. As I recall, it had been a one owner at the time. I told Neil
about it and he went and picked it up.
I think this is about a WWII vintage, maybe a bit before. Vandercook
didn't make this model for all that long, though I have seen a few of
It is a bit grungy and probably has significant surface rust by now
but if that was surmountable, I suspect it is probably a very
serviceble press. But yes, as Neil indicates, it is quite a monster,
and will easily take over your car's spot in the garage. If you are
intent at working large and making a fortune printing woodtype
posters, well then this is the size of press you need.
