The apotheosis of the proof press, Vandercooks (specifically the SP-15 and Universal models) provide consistent inking and impression and a large bed and are notoriously easy to clean, adjust and operate. They are also tremendously difficult to damage or move (bend at the knees, bring 4 strong friends). They are excellent for making prints from lino and woodcuts as well as metal and wood type, photopolymer, engravings and anything else type high.

Joshua Lurie-Terrell has an SP-15 in his garage and really needs to use it more often.
