C&P Craftsman Press Manual, 1946

Instruction on Installation, Care and Operation of the Chandler & Price Craftsman Automatic Unit 10x15 and 12x18 . (Cleveland, OH: The Chandler & Price Company, 1946.)

Regrettably, the original from which I made this digitization is incomplete (it is missing pp. 15-18). A complete version of this same manual, in a different digitization, is online at Boxcar Press ( http://www.boxcarpress.com/community/flywheel.html. That version, however, is at a lower resolution and looks as if it might have been done from a photocopy (thus degrading image quality before the scan).

The image at left links to a version of this manual uploaded to The Internet Archive. For convenience, here is a local copy of the PDF (228 Megabytes): cp-craftsman-press-1946-0600dpijpg.pdf
