Antique Press & Type For Sale

I just saw this on TradeMe and thought maybe one of you might be interested:

Furnival & Co Ltd hand fed printing press in good order. 
Dating back to late 1800's to early 1900's. 
Unsure of the year it was built.

It has two chase and three ink rollers in very good condition.

The press looks to be in overall good condition 
apart from a broken frame that holds the ink duct, 
it looks like its been broken before so not major. 

There are over 25 drawers of type to choose from. 
Some look like they havent been used. 

Types are:
14pt,18pt,36pt Marina Script
8pt,10pt,12pt,14pt,18pt,30pt,36 pt Old English

I would love to keep but have too many hobbies as it is, 
so would love to see someone enjoy this.
