"I bought this press disassembled from an old type founder in Philadelphia about 1970. I used it for many years for hobby printing but not in the last 25 years since moving to Delaware. We are now downsizing and need to get it out of the basement for closing. I want nothing for it except help in getting it out and onto your truck. There are a cases of type and composing equipment with it. It's well worn and a bit rusty but it runs."
