Combination press for sale in Virginia...

Postby Jackie Poutasse » Tue Apr 22, 2014 5:40 pm

I have a German Polypress/Combination press for sale. It is similar to the one advertised on the Talas site but has solid metal jaws. It comes with the in base wooden cabinet, plough plane, backing jaws and bottom stop. Will also include a backing hammer.

The press is approx. 15 years old and is well used but in excellent working condition. The box has a few cosmetic dings but is in overall good shape.

The press is located in Norfolk, Virginia and must be picked up. It weighs approx. 200 pounds. It does have heavy duty wheels which makes it easy to move around and is fairly easy for two guys to pick up and move. It's been up and down stairs many times. Would fit into the back of a pickup or van.

Asking $4200 OBO. (New, the system would cost just over $7000 dollars plus shipping.)

Please email off list for more information. Photos available on request.

That will be a great catch for someone. I hope that you'll find a buyer, Jackie!

Thanks Christopher, I hate to give it up but I haven't used it in a while. It needs a home where it will be used regularly.

Looks great but a bit expensive to post to the UK unfortunately.
Best wishes
