I’m sorry to say I’ve had reports of some posters being approached by scammers: these have been typically not in the UK or asking for items to be couriered. In one case a person was offered too much for their press and asked for the difference to be paid back to the buyer. The Nationwide has more details of frauds to look out for.
I’m selling a new condition, fully assembled F‑Press by Tom Bolton. It comes with all additional assembly equipment and parts, booklet and I can include new unopened letterpress ink in blue, green, brown and black worth around £40. I bought it for creating linocut prints but I have too many hobbies and not enough time! These sell for £250 + delivery and are often out of stock, I will consider offers around £220. Please get in touch if you are interested, I’d love to find it a good home!

I work for a living history museum in Basingstoke, Hampshire (Milestones Museum). We have a working Columbian Press, that we are keen to demonstrate to visitors, the main problem being that we have little typeset, spacers, leads and furniture. If anyone is looking to rid of these things, please keep us in mind. Thank you. Jo
