600 Direct Drive Press by Fitzroy Etching Presses

Made in Melbourne, the 600 press is one of our most popular as it is able to fit a standard 56x76cm sheet of paper. All of our presses are built to order with a turnaround time of 6-8 weeks.

The press features large diameter rollers, Japanese roller bearings, laser cut sides and brass safety stops. The price for this press includes a solid steel bed, hand wheel and safety strap. This press can be housed permanently on a bench, or alternatively mounted on a stand to be purchased separately, with the option of lockable castors for easy movement.

If you need to have this press delivered, you will also need to purchase a custom made delivery crate. Alternatively, the press can be picked up in store.
