A "Hollander" made of stainless steel. A machine to create paper pulp. We bought this machine many years ago from a Mexican producer. We did not dare to sell it, because the workmanship and the finishing of the machine did not meet our standards. It has never been used, it is partly diseassembled, but all pieces are there, and the machine will work.

Lithography Press
It has a metal plaque that is from the Modbury Engineering Co. in England so it was either made or maintained by them and it was last used by Oxford University. The press bed is 100x109cm (43x41 inches) and the print size is 94 cm ( 37 inches.) It has a motor and will come with 2 stones and 2 levigators. The price is 3000 Euros. The buyer will need to move it from the Island of Skopelos and it will need a little maintenance but otherwise it is a very good solid piece of equipment.
