If you purchase an used sewing frame in an excellent condition, please note you will see some wear and minor marks on the frame. However the sewing frame in the image is the used one we are going to send. We are more than happy to send you some pictures as your request.

It features a recessed front and an elevated table for the text block. This allows easier access for sewing. The top bar can be raised or lowered as desired and allows for tension to be applied to the sewing tapes/cords. Bottom slot for tapes/cords is approx. 6mm wide.

The elevated platform will accommodate books of spine lengths well over 300mm without overhang. The height of the vertical posts allow for books of virtually any spine thickness to be accommodated.

The vertical posts simply screw into the base and the drop bar is held in place by two wooden nuts. The latter allow for precise raising and lowering of the top bar from which tapes are suspended.

The screw-posts are of European Beech and this timber is sensitive to changes in moisture conditions. Under prolonged moist conditions the wooden nuts may become hard to turn and the whole frame should be stored in a dry place. Threads can be lubricated with beeswax or soap but should not be oiled or varnished.

We have applied the discount to the used press. The used press has been used for a few times, it has some chips. However, it is in a great condition, as you can see from the images, the press in the image is the used one we are going to send. Only one available in the bindery. Once you order it, the order will be sent out as soon as possible.  If you require some more pictures, we are happy to send to you.

Please note these presses are handmade, so they will have some natural marks on the surface from the wood. It is not damaged marks.
