“The Craftsmen Machinery Company of Boston, Massachusetts, manufactured several tabletop lever presses and at least one floor-model platen jobber. One press in their tabletop line, the Superior, is almost identical to the C&P Pilot except that its chase width is 6 1/2″” instead of 6″”. The C.M.C. Jobber, Craftsmen’s floor model press, is similar to Golding’s 7×11″” Pearl Improved. Other Craftsmen tabletop presses and their chase dimensions as shown in a 1964 catalog:

Victory, 4 1/2 x 6 3/8″” (shown)
Imperial, 5×8″”
Superior, 6 1/2 x 10″”
Monarch, 9×12″” “
