The Griffin Series 00 is a heavy-duty intaglio press ideal for etchings and block printing. The Series 00 Intaglio Press is hand built with the finest materials by our expert craftsmen.
The Series 00 Intaglio Press is made of all-steel construction. The sides are 3/8" steel plates which are welded together to form a very strong unit.
The usable bed size is 16-1/2" x 34" and comprised of 5/8" thick steel. It is grounded on both sides for parallelism and accuracy, and is stress relieved. Six ball bearings guide the bed through the press insuring a smooth operation. Safety stops are also in place on the bed.
The handle is a 20" diameter cast bronze wheel, driven by a gear reduction of 1 to 9, designed so that the bed can be easily cranked through the press under any amount of pressure.
The top roller is 6-1/2" in diameter and the diameter of the bottom roller is 4-1/2", turning on self-aligning ball bearings. The top roller has 3" of adjustment. This adjustment feature makes possible a wide variety of relief print making.
