His Liberty press (serial number 14631) is shown at the upper right of this page. It's a model 2A, with chase size of 26 x 38 cm (9 x 13 inches) and it carries the "F. M. Weiler / Berlin / New York" logo.
|When he first got the Liberty, it was not very clean. He disassembled it, cleaned all the parts, and put it back together in working order. (Herwig often needs to disassemble large presses to get them through the door into his print shop.)|
Herwig sent a batch of nifty pictures of his press, a couple of which I've used on other parts of this Liberty Press Web site:

Thanks to Herwig Kempenaers <email@example.com> for material used to create this page.
Herwig provided scans of Western European advertisements for Liberty (or Liberty-like) presses along with their descriptions.
He also sent pictures and descriptions of a Liberty Press at Darmstadt, Germany.
