Re: Can anyone identify this press???



I've used similar looking devices (but not that fancy looking) for casebound
book cover making.  After applying the boards to the cloth, making the
appropriate trims, and turning in the edges of the cloth, the cover is run
through the rollers to make sure the cloth and board are firmly adhered.  Maybe
not necessary when only making a few covers (a bonefolder or a small printers
roller works just fine) but when you are making 500-1000 covers a week, such a
machine, especially when powered, is a real time saver.
