The letterpress machines at Nickel Plate Press are heavy cast steel and iron, and were made when equipment was built to last more than a lifetime.
The newest press is the German Heidelberg platen press and it is 55 years old.
The Chandler & Price hand press, built in Cleveland more than 100 years ago still performs as it did when new.
