As can be seen in the pictures, this press has a throw-off. "F. M. Weiler" is cast into the flywheel, and the shield on the crankshaft lists New York and Berlin. Based upon the serial number, the manufacture date is probably between 1892 and 1894.
The press was beautifully restored, and then in 2015 put on display at the Biblioteca Municipal de Penalva do Castelo (Municipal Library in Penalva do Castelo), Portugal.
