My best guess on the original manufacture date of this press is post-1940's. I believe this is the most recent 5x8 model that Kelsey made. This press ... morehas been completely disassembled. All painted parts were stripped down to the metal and re-finished with 2 coats of primer then 2 coats of color and clear coat. The raised type in the castings have been accented with gold paint. All non-painted parts(pivoting rods. Ink arms, etc. were cleaned thoroughly. The fasteners in platen back and chase have been replaced with new stainless steel hex drive screws. The chase latch spring is new and also made of stainless steel. The roller hook retaining washers. Nuts and pins are all new and made of stainless steel. I fabricated new grippers and gripper bar rod for this press. The platen has been balanced to the chase bed with.050" packing under the tympan and is included with the press. The additional sheets of press packing included will allow you to change the packing under the tympan to adjust the print impression height as you change stock caliper. This is much easier than re-balancing the platen each time you change stock caliper. The press is currently packed to print on.012" stock. For example. If you wanted to print on.007" stock, you would add a sheet of.005" packing under the tympan. As with any press, the condition of your type and blocks and the uniformity of the type height will ultimately determine the quality of the printed image. The type used to print the proof card was not new. Rollers have been recovered on original journals. Trucks are original steel trucks. Rollers have only been used on this press(to verify press balance and roller& truck quality) to print the card in the photo gallery for this item. The press has been secured with stainless steel fasteners to a base made of oak which is stained& coated with a satin polyurethane. Rubber feet are fastened to each corner of the underside of the base so the press& base will not'walk' when printing. Base is long eno

Offered: 6 point Bank Gothic Medium w/figures and points included cast by American Type Founders(ATF) this typeface is also listed as ATF# 533. The 6 ... morepoint size offered in this listing is the Largest size of 6 point that was made. There were four sizes. My other offerings in this typeface are the smallest 6 point as well as the smallest 12 point. All of these offerings include the matching figure font. This font was unopened prior to this listing. It was very carefully opened, photographed and carefully rewrapped. As you can see in photographs this type is in pristine condition. If you happen to own this typeface that was cast by American Type Founders you may want to add this to your holdings. This offering includes Caps. Points and figures it is very useable as offered. This is hard Foundry type cast by American Type Founders well known for their flawless type casting. American Type Founders is no longer in business and as a result there is a diminished source of quality hard foundry type. PLEASE NOTE: The photograph in this listing shows type with a Kelsey Company Label. Kelsey Company purchased their hard foundry type from American Type Founders. Kelsey Company did nothing more than place a Kelsey Company label over the ATF factory label in many cases you can see the different color label sticking out underneath the Kelsey label. In many cases including this one Kelsey would change the name of the typeface in their catalog as in this case it was renamed"Bond Gothic. Bank Gothic as well as the Copperplate Gothic family of typefaces were designed to mimic the engraved intaglio printed typeface. However if the same typeface is letterpress printed coupled with thermography or raised printing it can quite easily pass as"engraved printed" or intaglio printing to the untrained eye. This effect could almost be referred to as the"poor mans" engraved printing since it is a lot less costly to produce the raised letter appearance. Bank Gothic is directly related to the Copperplate type family. Th

This auction is for a 3x5 model N Kelsey letterpress thats in great condition. Not used much and print ready.It has NEW printing rollers and mounted on a walnut top,for any Questions please e-mail,buyer pays shipping,payment Due within 2 days end of auction unless something else arranged.thanks for taking your time to view this auction.
No modifications or restoration done.in excellent condition both appearance and operation(less the rollers) More information about the history of the press and company can be found on the WEB at excelsiorpress.com. This is the Kelsey Excelsior Mercury Model 3X5. If you need more photos. Let me know. Most of the parts appear to be characters/print type.wood and metal blocks. and machine parts. SOLD AS-IS.
Up for auction is a really cool antique 3 x 5 inch Excelsior printing press by Kelsey& Co. of Meriden. Connecticut. Also a set of very fancy font type in a wooden type set box. One picture illustrates how ornate the lettering is, it reminds me of calligraphy. I don't know the letter model of the press for sure so I will describe everything in detail in conjunction with the many pictures I provided. It weighs 24 pounds and is made of cast iron with a black coat of paint and some painted gold lettering as well as a couple gold designs. The base measures 11.5 inches, the entire press is roughly 20 inches long including the protruding part behind the plate and the plate diameter is 5 7/8 inches. The patent date states is was patented April, 6, 1893. The'9' digit is hard to make it and I can't be positive that t is a'9' ... morebut I believe so)Following that there are patent numbers for England, France and Germany. The pictures should include enough angles so you can see all of the hardware. The press opens and closes like it should. But the rectangle that should hold the type tilts slightly and the two rectangles aren't perfectly parallel when the handle is pressed down and they separate. However, when you close the press they eventually become flush but it doesn't make initial square contact. It appears something just needs to be tightened or adjusted(pictures 4& 5) The sections where the rollers should be pivot down over the plate when the handle is pushed down. The plate spins freely when I move it but operating the press doesn't rotate it automatically. Condition: This was stored in a barn for decades. It needs a little TLC. You can plainly see there is plenty of surface rust but the black coat of paint over the cast iron is largely intact. The rust isn't deep or pitted, just on the surface. Some of the gold lettering and detail has worn or rusted over, but again it is largely intact. Cosmetically the iron is in wonderful condition and the mechanics seem to be functioning.
Cleaned out Bindery and found this in the basement. I replaced a bolt/nut(see last picture) but other than that. All original! Cleaned it off and lubed with wd40. Showed different angles in pictures. I entered $60 as shipping as this is the most it should cost to send to either coast from my location. If you are condierably closer, will calculate and charge lower rate. e-mail me if you have any questions.

My best guess on the original manufacture date of this press is 1940's or 50's. I am including an extra refurbished chase with locking bars with this press. This press has been completely disassembled. All painted parts were stripped down to the metal and re-finished with 2 coats of primer then 2 coats of color and a clear coat. The raised type in the castings have been accented with silver paint. All non-painted parts(pivoting rods. Ink arms, etc. were cleaned thoroughly. The fasteners in platen back and chase have been replaced with new stainless steel hex drive screws. The chase latch spring and platen spring are both new and made of stainless steel. The platen has been balanced to the chase bed with.060" packing under the tympan and is included with the press. The additional sheets of press packing included will allow you ... moreto change the packing under the tympan to adjust the print impression height as you change stock caliper. This is much easier than re-balancing the platen each time you change stock caliper. The press is currently packed to print on.012" stock. For example. If you wanted to print on.007" stock, you would add a sheet of.005" packing under the tympan. As with any press, the condition of your type and blocks and the uniformity of the type height will ultimately determine the quality of the printed image. The type used to print the proof card was not new. Rollers& trucks are new and have only been used on this press(to verify press balance and roller& truck quality) to print the card in the photo gallery for this item. The press has been secured with stainless steel fasteners to a base made of oak which is stained& coated with a satin polyurethane. Rubber feet are fastened to each corner of the underside of the base so the press& base will not'walk' when printing. Base is long enough so that the back of the press will not lift off when you push the press on impression. Included with this press: 2 rollers& trucks- 2 sheets.010 press packing-

Assortment of letterpress printers furniture. Used along with metal or wood type to secure those materials in the chase or bed of a printing press. Suitable for use with the popular Kelsey press. C&P pilot and floor models. If you are fortunate enough to own on of the Vandercook flat bed cylinder presses this furniture will work in it. Again this is an assortment of various lengths and widths. Material is very clean and gently used. Plenty of material to fill the chase of your table top or 12x18 floor model press. Buyer pays $13 postage. I'll ship in a mid sized flat priority rate box. Shipped only in the USA. Please see my other ad for some metal foundry type.
Offered here now is this old Excelsior 5 x 8 letter press made by Kelsey and Company. It is in nice condition with original grey paint. There is normal surface oxidation and areas of paint loss.

Beautiful Antique Kelsey& Co Excelsior Letterpress/Printing press. This is the 3X5 Tabletop Model. Wonderful. Near mint, working condition. An attic find from a local estate. Missing the rollers. Otherwise looks good. Just what you see here. I don't have the rollers or any type. If you have any questions or need more pics. Just ask. This is not a big operation with employees and a warehouse. This is a one man. One dog operation. And the dog's just here for moral support. I can be a little slow sometimes if real life intrudes, but I generally turn things around pretty quick(within a day) and I always try to take care of my customers. Check my feedback. A word or two about shipping: It's not my fault. By that. I mean, postage rates keep going up. There just isn't a cheap way to get something from here to there anymore. And ... moreUSPS Flat Rate isn't quite the deal the USPS makes it out to be. Having said all that, I’m willing to work with you and I'm always willing to combine shipping on multiple purchases whenever possible. Local pick-up is always an option. If you've made multiple purchases, please wait to pay until you receive my invoice. I do not normally use the"Buy It Now" feature and I do not end my auctions early. Unless you come up with a really crazy offer I will probably not even answer those emails. Sorry. There is no reserve on this item. And I always try to use a reasonable starting bid, so you folks are setting the price. Things happen. I'm honest. But I'm not perfect. And neither is the USPS. So if there are any issues with the transaction or the merchandise you receive please contact me before leaving feedback or opening a case. I'm pretty easy to get along with and I ask that you be the same. Try working with me before resorting to the bureaucracy. Good luck and have a good time.

Rare Kelsey OK Jobber. Built between 1886 and 1898. 9" x 13" Comes with 1 chases. Weight Approx 600 lbs. Is in working condition. Rollers are usable but not great. The press works but it is not the smoothest running press. Missing a bolt and washer to hold one of the side arms. The rod that holds the treadle is a replacement. The bolts holding the feed table to the sides are replacements. Break to the corner of the side casting that has been repaired, does not affect the press(see photos) Slow press, which is good since there is not much dwell to it. This is a rare press, but I would not say it is a great candidate for someone starting letterpress that wants to produce a lot of printing. Fun second press, oddity, a collectible and a museum piece.

Hi. Selling a little table top letterpress printing press. No markings, its either a sigwalt or Chicago#9. Chase inside dimensions are 3-13/16 x 2-1/2. Is made to use with 2 rollers, but this does not have rollers with it. About a year ago I stripped it down, sandblasted it, and painted it black. Looks nice! I replaced the lever nut/ bolt with new stainless hardware. I made the chase out of 1/4" stainless. not original, but works great. I also drilled and tapped for(2) 1/4-20 bolts in the bottom of the chase which eliminates the need for quoins when using a block. platen is nice and even. Adjustment screws work properly. Needs gripper spring. ink disk works and spins as it should. Nice little press. I use it regularly, I just want something bigger. Use as is and ink with a brayer as I do, or buy rollers/trucks. Nice for business cards ... moreand such. I currently have it on a wood base, which I will include if you're doing local pickup, but it is not included if press is being shipped, as it would not be worth the additional shipping charges due to its size. Feel free to ask questions! Thanks, mike

This is an iron Kelsey Excelsior. Mercury model 3x5. Tabletop letter press, printing press which is missing parts. It is up for auction for someone to restore it. Needs rollers and plate and I don't know much more. View images and ask questions but I can only tell you what I see as I am not familiar with this items function. I bought it as salvage in hopes of restoring it but now I am anticipating a move and need to sell my"projects" from Meriden. Conn. has rust from being outdoors for a time. condition is as-is sold as-is for repair free shipping available only to the lower 48 US States. No PO Boxes, no rural routes unless you negotiate with me in advance on your delivery.
I bought this press in 1976 from a man who used it to print wood and linoleum cuts. He graduated to a larger press. In 1977 I printed a chapbook of poetry in a run of 200. I did the same in 1982. In between. I printed some gag business cards for me and my friends, and some wood and linoleum cuts that my wife and friends made. I haven’t used the press since 1982. The press is complete except for rollers and roller bearings/trucks. When I used it. I kept all moving parts lubricated. It has surface rust on some areas. It still moves easy, but I’d recommend a thorough cleaning and lubricating before using it. Along with the press are accessories including chase irons. Gripper bars, roller protectors, tympan paper, various pieces of furniture, a composing stick, double grip gauges and extensions, a hand roller, a mallet and plane, a cleaning brush, ... morea bodkin, an ink spatula and mixing surface. Some of these have surface rust, too. Please see the pictures. The press and accessories will ship in two cartons via FedEx Ground. Insured for $500. Free Local Pickup is also available. If you pick it up. I will include 2 small fonts of type(one in a printer's drawer) and the leads I used when printing, for free. The items are too heavy and/or awkward to ship. One of the fonts(in the printer's drawer) is a stylized one, New England Type: Margery. I think"Margery" is in 12 and 14 pts. but I can't remember for sure. The other font is New England Type: Centenary. I think"Centenary" is in 10, 12 and 14 pts. but I can't remember for sure.
This wonderful press is estate fresh and untouched. As you can see. This press appears to have always been well cared for and maintained. I am including the extras as shown as well as a whole folder full of helpful bulletins relating to using this machine. It is a bit dusty is all and will clean up to be a real gem. This is a very well built unit and as I'm sure you know, will hold up to a lifetime of use. I am offering this machine to with a low opening bid and NO RESERVE! Please ask any questions prior to bidding. Thanks and good luck!
Here is what the auction includes: Kelsey Excelsior 5 x 8 Model U letterpress. The press is in very good condition. It has been in storage for 40 plus years. It also has a nice little impression counter attached to the press. This counter can be easily taken off if not wanted. There is no mechanical mechanism attached to the counter because the impression platen simply moves an arm on the counter each time you make an impression. It seems like a very handy thing to have. I have not printed anything with this, but it operates smoothly. Also included in this auction: 2 Kelsey 5 x 8 chases 4 pair of Kelsey quoins 1 Kelsey Quoin key 1 Kelsey slug cutter.

This is a like new or unused Kelsey Excelsior Mercury Model N with all of it original finish and no wear marks from use. there is some missing paint- some marks on the back of the ink plate but none where the plate rotation lever contacts the plate. Some handling marks. this machine had tympan paper in it and I found a"press board" from the Kelsey Co. under the paper; no impressions on the paper or on the press board- so someone set this up and for most likely did not use it. No rollers Chase appears factory new with screws appearing unused. no missing paint on handle though some small rust marks(see pic) also. While I had to clean this press off, I did not have to clean the plate where the chase rests(the bed? and the platen and they both still have orange/brown numbers on them from the factory. the ink plate also had something ... morewritten on it in the same crayon, but not realizing I was dealing with a new item, I washed it off with the oil and dust; what I am saying is that this press still has factory control numbers on it and has not been cleaned prior to my getting it. local pickup in zip 11379 is welcome.
Check out this vintage Excelsior Mercury Printing Press- Model P- 5 x 8. I've had it and cared for it for a number of years. Always intending to buy the rollers and tympan paper and use it. Well, I finally decided that is not going to happen, so I'd like to find a good home for someone to get it up and running. All mechanisms move- no frozen parts. You can always get the type and other materials. But an easier way is to do the design and"typesetting" on a computer and then order a rubber plate online. There are many places to look online if you are interested. As you can see. The item is crated and secured. The total weight- crate and press- is about 95 lbs. I will buy insurance.

As shown in the photos it is complete with all parts and ready to produce. This hand lever press is in good working condition. But has not been used in more than 40 years. I obtained it from a business sale in 1973 and have not used it for printing since then. The press still operates smoothly but the working parts need cleaning and lubrication to function at their best. Some parts have dried ink on them. But this can be removed with solvent. The original paint finish on the press is generally in good condition with few chips or nicks. There is no rust on any of the working parts. This late manufacture Kelsey Model P includes the l ocking bed feature not found on the earlier manufactured ... moremodels.
