The Speedball Etching Press with Metal Bed is perfect for a range of techniques. Use it for printing etchings, monotype, and drypoint plates, woodcuts, and linocuts. The metal bed is made of steel, which is strong and durable. Steel is widely used for etching press beds. The 12" × 24" bed is 7 mm thick. The 24" × 36" bed is 11 mm thick.
Speedball Etching Presses are bottom-roller driven. The lower roller forces the bed through the press and the top roller supplies the pressure. The top roller is zinc-plated and adjustable for pressure setting. For the 12" × 24" press, both rollers are mounted on self-aligning bearings.
Each etching press is equipped with pressure dial readings to allow for consistent pressure application.
Speedball Etching Presses include a five-year warranty.
