Our star and round wheel direct drive presses are made using steel fabricated parts, dense walled stainless steel cylinders housed in pre-oiled bearings. Easily maintained, and many safety features include bed safety stops and press lock down as well as easy removal of star or round wheel and press bed.

It is simple and quick to set the pressure for any thickness of plate, from thin etchings and dry-point plates to thick woodblocks, and anything in-between. We can deliver and set up for you, and also show you how to make plates and print from them. You can come to our printmaking Gallery/workshop and print some of your own plates (or ours if you don’t have any) to get the feel of our range of presses.
