FAG proof presses are not produced any more. That's why it is important to keep as many of these high engineered printing presses alive and in working condition. This part of the webpage is meant to share contacts and help to find new homes for FAG proof presses and related equipment.

If you have anything for trade or for sale please write an email with a description and some photos to Dafi Kühne. I am happy to put it on that list. Please do not send me any requests for equipment. I am not selling FAG printing presses or related equipment on a regular base and I dont take responsibilty for any of the offered goods.

FAG Control 405 / SOLD

Nov 20, 2013 / Ebay Germany

Another FAG proof press on Ebay Germany. Its not visible from that point of view if it has an adjustable bed. Besides from that it looks pretty okay. I don't have any further information about it. The press is located in Soest, near Dortmund, Germany.

 

The seller is asking 2'500 Euros.  I guess you would definitly want to ask a bit more about the condition and the moving situation, before you'd pay that much for a unrefurbished press.

FAG Swiss Proof 40 / SOLD

Oct 30, 2013 / Ebay Germany

There is a FAG Swiss Proof listed on Ebay Germany! Unfortunately there are only two unsharp photos but anyone who is close to Nürnberg should go and have a look at it! I wrote the seller an email so he/she should update more information about the condition.

Update Oct 31, 2013 : The seller, Mr. Lang contacted me today and sent me infos about the press. The press has been used not very often by a local artist in the last 5 years. He says that the press is in working condition. He will take more photos of the rollers and details next week. The press is situated in a basement of a building in Nürnberg and needs to be put in pieces by the buyer. He said that when they moved it in they removed the cylinder carriage and even the pressbed from the frame. Then 4 strong people could lift the press out – I guess it would be 4 very strong people! I'll update the images as soon as I get them from Mr. Lang.

Update Nov 03, 2013 : The seller, Mr. Lang updated the auction with several images. It looks like the press is pretty complete, clean and without rust. Still the handle bar is missing. Other than that the cover of the ink drum doesn't seem to be installen (which is not a problem and might still be around). The ink rollers don't look too bad and are probably still usable. All in all – I would say a perfect press for the person who could organize the transport. Go for it!

Go check it out on Ebay.
