Description

Widely regarded as the best of the tabletop presses, this is the famous Chandler & Price Pilot, chase size 6½” x 10″.  It’s the New Series model which is heavier and more substantial than (but not quite as pretty as) the original 19th-century design.  This press is Serial Number P1625.  Here at Skyline it has been completely disassembled, sandblasted to bare metal, refinished in beautiful gloss black, reassembled and adjusted to perfect functionality, and outfitted with a standard chase and new synthetic rollers (yep, they’re purple!) with steel trucks.  No breaks or welds.  You will find Pilots for sale here and there in the $2000-$2500 range, but you won’t find a better one than this.  It comes with a stand made from an antique school desk, as seen in the picture.  Available in the Skyline pressroom for inspection and a test-drive at your pleasure.
