LEE TWO-REVOLUTION PRESS
A MODERATE PRICED PRINTING MACHINE
The Lee Two-Revolution Press is a Simplified Cylinder Press, compact in size, and yet large
enough to handle two pages of a seven column newspaper without crowding, as well as to take
care of the general run of job printing in an efficient and satisfactory manner. It possesses a
strong, rigid impression, two form rollers, rack-and-screw and table distribution, impression

trip, brake, front fly delivery (clean side of sheet to fly), and many conveniences heretofore
supplied only on presses costing a great deal more.
The Lee Two-Revolution Press is very simple in operation-pressmen of limited experience
readily master the few adjustments necessary to change from one size form to another. It is a
marvel of smooth, quiet, easy running, registers perfectly and may be safely operated at 2250
per hour with air springs, and at 1800 per hour without air springs. In its construction the Lee
Press represents the ripe experience of a third of a century. The manufacturers have developed
and perfected the Lee Press to a point where they are willing to stake their reputation on it.
They know the quality of the material and workmanship that is put into it, and, with the confi-
dence of that knowledge, guarantee absolutely that the Lee Press will make good every claim
made for it. In its low first cost, in its low cost of maintenance, in its superior product, and in
its low cost of operation it represents one of the best possible investments you can make-
a continuous profit producer.
REGULAR EQUIPMENT.-With each press is furnished one set of cast rollers, one set of roller
stocks, impression trip, foot brake, six steel angle irons for delivery board, packing on cylinder,
set of wrenches, screw drivers and oiler.
