Virtual Tour - Chandler & Price Pilot Press

C & P Pilot Press donated by Don & Craig Black in memory of William "Bill" Poole, one of the original founders of the Mackenzie Print & Newspaper Museum.

The Pilot was designed and sold as a press for small job, short-run printing in commercial shops as well as for teaching letterpress printing in high school or industrial trade school print shop classes. On it, the student could learn all they would need to know about set up and make ready of a hand-fed platen press, and could do it with a machine that was less expensive, safer and could fit into a classroom.
