Etching Press 400 HD

For printmakers starting out, this press offers excellent value. Its main features are a strong PVC bed, and top and bottom self-aligning precision Japanese roller bearings in cast housings. It is finely engineered, direct drive, with solid steel top and bottom roller s on heavy duty 25mm diameter axles, which will last a lifetime without bending.

For its size, it is still sufficiently portable to be used for field trips and workshops. The bed is made from 12mm thick Australian steel, fitted with brass safety stops to prevent the bed from moving out of the press through the roller gap when the top roller is up. The 400 HD is made as a bench press , but a stand is available if required at an extra charge, either with or without lockable wheel castors.

Press movement is via a large diameter wheel which attaches to the bottom roller.
