Equipment for sale

My mentor John has recently saved the contents of a print shop from going into the melting pot along with some Type cabinets and sloping tops (pictured), various cases, lead cutter, cornerstone and resalite furniture and quoins. These are soon to be listed on eBay but if anyone is interested in getting in there first then you can email me and I will pass on your details. Please note these items are to be picked up only from Blackburn Lancashire Jct 3 M65, not posted.
All the type has been cleaned and sorted into smaller manageable founts and I can guarantee you won't get any worn or mismatched type, please see list below if your interested...

      Hi, I've just found your blog and think it's fantastic. I've been google searching for two weeks to find any information about letterpress-ing in the UK. You're site is just what I've been looking for - it looks great, your work is fantastic and it has helpful hints and links for a n00b like me who keen to learn. I'm looking forward to going through all your old posts and geeking out with all the printing information. Thanks and keep it up!

    3. thanks votumalbum :) some more posts soon when I get the chance!

    4. Hi,

      Just a thought, but have you asked a cabinet maker or carpenter for a quote on building you one? I have no idea if it'll be cheaper, but it's not a complicated bit of woodwork ;-)

    6. Do you still have this?

    7. Sorry the type has all gone now
