Luis Nunes's Liberty Press

Liberty Press of Luis Nunes

In April 2014, Luis Nunes wrote, "I have found a Weiler Liberty. It is missing the wood tray and ink rollers. I'm no expert, and this press deserves to be well restored. I have measured the frame and it is 23 x 33 cm, so it is a 2A model. It is located in Lisbon, Portugal."

As can be seen in the picture to the left, 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.
