Frederick Ullmer Ltd. Albion
A photo set of images taken of my Frederick Ullmer Ltd. Albion. The press was built from forms or parts acquired by Excelsior Printing Supply in London. The press was cast in Czechoslovakia in the early 1980s and sold to a press collector in San Rafael, CA. It was so poorly finished that I had to fix and re-construct a number of parts on the press, including the entire tympan assembly. With the help of four local machinists I was able to make it into a decent working press. Sadly I took no before pictures, but remember clearly what had to be done to make it a working machine. Hopefully anyone else with a similar machine, with similar problems will benefit from my experience.
