etching press repairs and spare parts
We make parts to match broken/worn out parts that are sent to our workshop. We supply laminate bedplates and felts kits to suit all presses, not just enjay.
If a complete renovation is warranted, we do it in our workshop. You can see a rejuvenation of a 39 year old press to near new condition in Success Stories.
Here’s a little Holbein press with a laminate bedplate we supplied. Back in action!
Here are examples of laminate bedplates (subject to quotations):
- 500x900mm x 6mm thick $128*
- 500x900mm x 8mm thick $156*
We supply felts kits comprising 1 x A grade and 2 x B grade per kit. They are pure wool pressed felts, 3mm thick, the B grade being half the density of the A grade felt.
Good quality, they have been proven suitable for the variety of printmaking processes.
The following thicknesses are available: 3, 4.8, 6.4 and 9.5mm.
We cut to suit your requirements, but to give an idea of price, here are examples of prices for our 3mm felts kits:
- 3 felts 450x850mm $76*
- 3 felts 600x1100mm $128*

The formply stand we supply is sturdy, stylish and economical. It is shown supporting an RP18D but also suits the s18g press. It is supplied as a complete kit, easy to assemble, but be aware you have to screw it together using the parts we supply.
