Looking for a small press

Buenos Dias, fellow type enthusiast. I was wondering if anyone can help me in my search for a small printing press (like the one's used in letterpress printing). Doesn't if it's new or used or how old. I don'y need any movable type (I can make my own). Any help would be appreciated.

One good cheap way is to search for "table top letterpress" / "tabletop letterpress" on eBay. In the past 2 months or so I've noted at least three offered and sold, for between $250 and $800 US dollars.

My business partner, Ross, bought his platen press and some type from Don Black in Toronto. They typically have a couple of dozen or more presses of various sizes in stock, and lots of type.

I have a small Adana press, a type case, and 6 fonts (mostly ATF). I'm not sure that shipping out to you makes sense; I was kinda hoping to find a buyer in the Bay Area. I'm moving in 3 months, so I gotta get rid of it.
