RE: [PPLetterpress] Expandable Trucks
You are wise in inquiring before trying the Morgan Expansion Trucks. I
tried some on my Columbian No 2 and found there was not enough space for
I suggest you contact Fritz Klinke at NA Graphics, who stocks them. He
can be reached at nagraph@.... He can probably tell you whether or
not they will fit. If they fit, they will solve your problem.
You also might want to post an inquiry to the Letpress Discussion Group.
I suspect more of their people use platen presses than the PPL group.
Sorry not to have responded sooner. I have been away the past week.

Subject: [PPLetterpress] Expandable Trucks
I'm new to the PPLetpress List.
I have a Craftsman 6 x 10 and was wondering if anyone has experience
with using/converting expandable trucks. Two main problems at hand: I
need to lower the the noise the press makes when the rollers leave
the rail and move to the inking plate and back; and my rollers are
about 1/8 inch (the circumference) larger than my trucks. What I'm
doing now is putting a piece of pressboard behind the chase but don't
know if this is a good long term solution.
Thanks in advance for your responses.
