Chandler & Price Letterpress

This diagram on the left shows a more recent model of the Chandler & Price press found in the Sign of the George. The model in the Sign of the George does not have an ink fountain, platen guard, or speed control. It does have a motor, although it is located on the floor and has been disconnected as a safety precaution. The other diagrams were made from photographs taken in the Sign of the George.
