Justin Miller, Prop. of Bound Staff Press, has a good collection of C&P documentation online at http://boundstaffpress.blogspot.com/p/chandler-and-price-letterpress.html The actual documents are stored not on his blog site but on Google Docs, which requires a Google account. These include:
Boxcar Press has an extensive collection of manuals online. At the time I write this, their manuals for the C&P Craftsman include:
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).
C&P Craftsman Press Parts List
Chandler & Price Craftsman Press with C&P Rice Automatic Feeder, 10x15 and 12x18, Component Parts List . (Cleveland, OH: The Chandler & Price Company, n.d.)
A different digitization of this manual 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).
