enjay Etching Presses

RP24G enjay etching press

Happily in late 2015 I took delivery of a new Enjay s24* etching press. It was built and sent from Melbourne to Brisbane, it came in three bits all delivered within the same week. So easy to install and now takes pride of place in the studio. Neil and Bill were most helpful in discussing the virtues of the various models and so were able to suggest a visit to a Melbourne artist Dawna Richardson-Hyde who has the very same model s24 in her studio. Making it possible for me to view and discuss it's easy care and low maintenance with a fellow artist really helped in my decision to purchase the Enjay.

The RP24G is a versatile and safe etching and relief printing press.

The RP24G is a geared press. The generous diameter of the rimmed handwheel provides a smooth and powerful delivery of rotation, ensuring a quality print. The gearing enables printing of etchings in the popular 56x76 paper format (or paper width 620mm maximum). Relief printing is easily handled to paper width 540mm (when using runners). The space above the roller is completely clear to allow felts to flip over easily.
Maintenance is near zero; no adjustments, no greasing; just a little oil occasionally.
Low cost options include a cabinet base and a starter kit of 3 basic felts.

Standard 5 year warranty applies.
