.958 Letterpress Platen Setting Gauges

A set of 4 aluminum platen gauges machined to .958" inches for leveling platens on letterpress printing equipment. These gauges are locked into your chase like regular type, and are not magnetic so they will work on aluminum and cast iron presses.


.918" plus .040" for packing = .958"


In stock and ready to ship!


To use:

Step 1: Lock up the four gauges into your chase on the outside edges.

Step 2: Remove all packing from your platen.

Step 3: Close the platen and adjust impression screws until you have contact and even pressure in all corners.

Step 4: Repack your press with .040" worth of packing.
