Small Model Presses – Perfect for Students and Schools

These small compact presses that are available in either DIRECT DRIVE or GEAR REDUCTION DRIVE. These are also available in either Bench Mounted or supplied with Stand, and optional extra Lockable Castors for the stand. This makes moving them about so much easier, so that they can be put away when not in use.

These presses are driven by a 660 mm (26”) Dia. Hand Wheel. This wheel gives easy operation while maintaining “feel” for the plate passing through the roller.

The Bed plate is manufactured from Black Laminate which gives high compressive strength, is durable, light weight and dose not constitute the same danger of injury that a steel bed plate does. The bed is supported on adjustable supports. A clear Acrylic Layout Sheet is provided with each press.

The Top and Bottom Roller is made from heavy gauge machined steel, with self aligning ball bearings. The Top roller is 114 mm (41⁄4”) Dia. Machined and ground to high standard of finish.

The Bottom Roller is 89 mm (31⁄2”) Dia. Coarse Machined.

DIRECT DRIVE MODELS. Driven by the Hand Wheel which connects directly to the bottom roller.

GEAR REDUCTION DREDUCTION DRIVE. Reduction Drive presses use a roller chain drive, this has the advantage over a gear wheel because the chain wraps around the sprocket. Giving a ratio of 2.5:1. This makes it easier to drive the bed through the roller.

Large Model Presses

The Lager model Direct Drive press is an inexpensive light duty press on which larger work can be produced. They have the size of some of the Semi Professional model presses with a lower price range.

The Larger model Direct Drive presses can be either Bench mounted or come with a stand. A set of heavy duty lockable castors can be fitted to the stand.

The Bottom Roller is 89 mm (31⁄2”) Dia. Coarse Machined. The Hand wheel is 660 mm (26”) Dia.
