Chandler and Price (C&P) Pilot Letterpress For SALE

o6/16/2010 UPDATE: The press has been sold to a great new home! Thanks everyone for your inquires.
05/31/2010 UPDATE: The buyer cannot buy the press anymore, so it's now available. Please contact me if interested.

It is with a heavy heart that I've decided to sell my C&P Pilot letterpress - so I want to make sure that it goes to a great home. If you're interested in getting started with letterpress or don't have room for a full-sized press this little guy is ideal. It's a great tabletop press, but I just don't have room for it anymore. It's sitting in my living room, so while it's a great conversation piece, it's gotta go!

{the press comes with}
one chase, two cases of type, and a box of wooden furniture. The feed board is fully intact.

{it's missing}
one of the paper grippers, and rollers and trucks (which can be purchased at NA Graphics). 

Please email me directly at julie [at] cartoulesletterpress [dot] com if interested. Serious inquiries only please. Buyer must  pick up from Long Beach, or meet up within reasonable driving distance. I'm also working on getting new rollers for it too if that helps...

By the way, this does not mean that Cartoules is closed for business - I've had some people ask. Margaritari (the Golding Pearl) was my upgrade and just took the pilot's place, so no room for two presses. Though I would LOVE to start my own letterpress museum. Seriously :)
