Re: [PPLetterpress] Hello everyone! I have an Adana 8x5
- Hi Chad,
We started life as printers with two Adana 8x5s bought from Exchange and Mart for about 50 quid apiece in the 70s. I'm pretty sure we have some sort of a manual somewhere, and I'll have a look. If so, I'll photocopy it and send it along by post. Can you contact me offline [Barbarian_Press@...] and let me have your postal address, please?
Failing that, if you can ask specific questions we can certainly give you instructions; at one point I think I could have assembled and printed with one of them in my sleep.

Subject: [PPLetterpress] Hello everyone! I have an Adana 8x5
I'm a designer living and working in London and have bought myself a Adana 8x5 with 25
typefaces/sizes in two chest of draws - it's a lot of lead! ...but I'm really chuffed with it all.
I'm trying to get my head round the whole process from photo-polymers to chase sizing. I'm
learning quick but what i'd really like to know is how to thoroughly use and clean my Adana
8x5 press as I don't have any reference material what-so-ever.
Can anyone point me towards any online content? Youtube videos or likewise? Or, anyone
have a manual I can borrow and photocopy?
Thanks in advance.
