New Project! - Model No.1 Presses.
I recently acquired two Model No.1 Presses, complete, with four original chases & luckily two original roller bearers I can copy. The inside chase measures 5 inches by 3inches.
There is some serious cleaning to do....at some time they've been completely covered in grease - perhaps to stop rusting...& some adjustments to be made.
If any can tell me the diameter of the rollers for this press I'd love to hear from you...for now I'm presuming they are the same as the roller bearers.
I find learning about the history of these machines fascinating - & being able to keep these presses working will be very rewarding.
The bottom two pictures are of an existing roller runner - 30mm diameter.
