C&P Pilot 6.5″ x 10″ tabletop letterpress printing press & complete starter’s kit


Out of stock


We have recently have acquired three C&P Pilot 6.5″ x 10″ tabletop letterpress printing presses. Please see pictures of first refurbishment below and know that even if you aren’t the first buyer (which is the press pictured below) the other two are essential twins…same model, same condition, same package.  Pics can be sent to you prior to shipment for verification for the last two presses.  As of now, we are selling them in order.  Each restoration has/will include:

-Inspection, repair and/or replacement of any missing, non-working parts to near or better than new condition

-All painted parts were significantly brightened revealing very good factory paint

-All working surfaces and interfaces were burnished to clean metal

-New, high quality rubber rollers installed

-Press was oiled, platen set to print/pack height, and all functions of press validated as working exactly as they should

This press is ready to rock upon arrival—no components to search for to make this complete—it is ready for work and display. This package includes a chase–and-as always!–our thorough starter’s kit which you can see below (a $200 value):


A note about the C&P Pilot:  This press is widely regarded by users as the finest tabletop press available in the world for  several reasons:  The maker, it’s chase size, and it’s operation.  A great number of business print shops looked to the Pilot for their tabletop press.   It is a workhorse and a dream to operate for smaller runs (100-500). 

Please note that S/H costs will be quoted after the purchase and are not included in the package price.  I am happy to ship this press internationally, price TBD depending on location.  Please contact me for quote. Shipping in continental US is estimated at $75 -150 or less depending on location. The press is located in Indianapolis and distance increases cost. That said, we strive very hard to minimize shipping/handling costs to keep budgets in line.  Pickup would of course, be free.

Also please note that we have 100’s of presses so just because I haven’t physically listed a press package on the site doesn’t mean I don’t have anything available.  I have plenty available and can absolutely provide you with something to help you kill time during Covid-19!!!  Please reach out to me over phone/text/email.  Happy to correspond and find you what you need.

Please contact Andrew for questions or more information.
