Patterns have been tested for the Chandler & Price presses and will generally drop in with only small cleaning and refinements of press and castings. Recognize that your press is unique – after near 75 years of production, and 50 plus years out of production – you press has been rebuilt and repaired a few times. There will be some minor differences press to press. This kit includes: Treadle, Hook, and all Hardware to attach and use with your press.
