Etching Press 500 HD

For printmakers looking for the best value for money, relative to top roller size and weight of press, the 500 HD is an excellent Australian made press.  It offers an affordable press, with solid, laser cut sides forming the heavy duty, 12mm thick, bearing support braces. It also features top and bottom self-aligning precision Japanese roller bearings in cast housings which bolt to the wide press side frames for maximum stability and overall bed support.

This press is finely engineered, with a large diameter professional sized top roller on 25mm diameter axles and a 65mm solid steel bottom rol ler. The press comes with a 12mm thick Australian steel bed, with brass safety stops, and is operated via an 800mm diameter, hand wheel.

This is a press which ideally should be per manently set up in a classroom or studio, and although made as a bench top mount press , offers a matching all steel base stand.

Press Includes: 800mm handwheel,12mm thick steel bed & safety strap
