    My brother and I have wanted a press for a number of years and were just able to get one this past week - scored a ATF Davidson 702P with roll converter from a shop that had upgraded and was just looking for someone to do the heavy lifting and get it out of the way! The only bad thing is the owner/operator manuals are long gone. After a fair amount of searching online I found this forum and searched a bit more with no luck - does anyone have a resource for a .pdf or hard copy for that manual?

    This is strictly hobby purpose - might sound weird but my brother and I love stuff like this and learning how to use it. My garage is filled with antique hand planes and saws and hammers and on and on.

    Also hoping to get some guidance on cleaning it up. There is some dried ink on some of the rollers. If we need to just get a gallon of press cleaner we will - but hobbyist so $40 for cleaner - there are just other things I would like to spend it on. Will another mild solvent work like acetone or even vinegar?

    Hi, Acetone will work on UV inks , theres a product from a company called Ultrachem, Wonderstrip, It will remove hard ink very easily.
