Superior Bookbinding Equipment

Back in the 1980's Sally Martin and John Mitchell got together to produce a range of traditional wooden book binding equipment. They didn't produce it for very long, and now this equipment is highly prized for it's quality of construction & design.

 

bookbinding equipmentI have no problem prophesying that this book binding equipment will also be remembered for the same reasons. It is precision built and carries the unconditional guarantee of the makers.

 

It is made from furniture grade solid beech and is finished to high standards. The medium sized finishing press, the most popular finishing press, is actually on the large size, and will cope with everything up to a large family bible.

 

The finely cut threads on the large diameter dowel result in plenty of pressure for even the large books you will encounter.

 

I have even used the large finishing press to round and back books, you get more than enough pressure.

 

Both the large and small sewing frames are a joy to use, careful design has resulted in equipment that is a pleasure to handle. In particular the parts used to raise and lower the sewing bar have been carefully turned to fit the hand. 

 

I would have expected this superior quality equipment to be more expensive than the equipment from the large suppliers, in fact it is around the same price.

 

Don't pay more than you need to, for example the large finishing press costs here £155.00 plus shipping. From another major supplier it costs £205.62 plus shipping, PLUS tax. Shop around, you will see our prices are lower, sometimes much lower!

 

If you are from the USA and are concerned about shipping costs, let me say that I have seen testimonials from people in the USA who say that despite increased delivery costs, this equipment is still better value than equipment purchased locally. All equipment is sent by secure delivery which has to be signed for on receipt.

 

There are sound reasons why this equipment is in our opinion better than average.

If you would like to know precisely why this bookbinding equipment is superior you can download a .pdf file which features excerpts of a conversation I had with the makers. click here.

 

Please note: The makers of this equipment are also able to produce bespoke bookbinding equipment to your own specification at similarly low prices.

 

This equipment is made to order, making & delivery is about 4 weeks within the UK or 5 weeks to the USA, and yes, it is worth the wait, one customer from America said the equipment was "to die for", (See testimonials)
