Casing Press Stand

The casing press stand allows the Casing Press to be  used off the bench in either an upright position or a prone position.  In the upright position Casing Press  serves for standard casing in operations, as well as  most operations performed with a standard standing press.  In the prone position the press can be used for finish work, cleaning spines and backing or reshaping the spine using the optional backing boards.

Specifications:

  • Construction: Solid, hard maple with imported birch plywood shelf.

  • Dimensions: 18"w x 15"d  x 36"h

Backing Boards

The backing boards, used in conjunction with the stand, replace the removable press boards and allow the press to be used for cleaning spines and backing and reshaping operations.

The backing board jaws are beveled in 1/8".  Unlike standard backing presses which distribute pressure evenly across the press jaws, the slight bevel concentrates pressure at the books' shoulder joint and ensures a firm grip while also slightly pushing the spine upward.  

1/4" polycarbonate panels line the top surface of the maple jaws protecting them from damage. Polycarbonate is an extremely tough plastic, frequently used as a replacement for glass and plexiglas where breakage is a concern, Though it will ding if hit hard enough, the damage is aesthetic rather than functional..
