  • My manual for the Universal III shows that it was available with either a 42 inch or 30 inch feed board. Both of my Universal IIIs have the longer one, but also have a bed extension at the far end of the press bed. This makes the press akwardly long and difficult to get around in my studio. My option is either to eliminate the bed extension (this requires modification of the...

  • Gerald, The 320G is very simple Vandercook. The trip mechanism can be disconnected and disassembled, the shelving box can be removed with a few screws, the feed boards taken off, the cylinder rolled off the end of the bed (mark the teeth first) then you can remove the press bed from the legs which are tied together with threaded rods. I have never taken one of my presses this far...

  • Gerald and list, Thanks for the input and suggestions. I should have mentioned these are brand new plates from Boxcar. These are only the second plates I have ordered and I had the same problem with the last ones, only to a lesser and more manageable degree. This time the curling is causing the plate to pull away from the adhesive backing and lift off the base at the edges to the...

  • I have a job on the press using plastic backed photopolymer plates and sheet adhesive backing, but the plates are warping like crazy and peeling off the base. What could cause this to happen?

  • from vandercookpress.com- Harold E. Sterne, previous owner of NA Graphics comments: "The Universal series were quite popular with the paper mills for testing paper. There was a company in New England that made special attachments for those presses. At one time when they couldn't find anymore Universals they asked us if we could have them built from our blueprints. We contacted a...

  • There was a free SP-15 on Craigslist in Hawaii a few weeks ago. I wonder if that press found a home... I think the model of press, the condition and the location are all great factors in what the market will bear. But if you can't pay what the market will bear, you have to do some legwork. You can't just wait for it to be advertised on the letpress or Briar Press. Hundreds of...
