Re: Cost of used book presses



I've paid nothing to $35 to close to $200.  They can be cleaned by having
them sandblasted and then repainting them with auto paint or with a clear
sealer to keep them from rusting.  Naval jelly and a steel brush might also
work to get the rust off.  I've had a couple of blacksmith friends work on
mine over the years, but I expect that almost any metals shop could do this
work and make any repairs necessary.
