Model: FAG Control 800

Studio: Au Chiffon d'encre, Meslin-l'Evêque, Belgium

Michel Xavier on the FAG Control 800: ‹I bought this press as a second owner in 2001. It had a lot of surface rust when I go it. I did some restorations on it and I repainted the machine black.

I use this press on a daily base in my studio. Besides of the FAG Control 800, I also use a Heidelberg KSBA, a tabletop LMW American No.8, a Dainippon Screen KF 124-GL (that is pretty similar to the FAG), a Krause litho press and a huge Julien litho press and an Artley gravure press.›
