Finebilt

Finebilt presses were manufactured in Los Angeles beginning in the early 1950s until 1962 or ’63. They were the first commercial dealership to make presses available to the pressing market. CBS had developed a record press, but it was used exclusively for CBS product in CBS plants. Hamilton presses eventually became the main competition for Finebilt. New, the Finebilt press cost between $6,000 and $8,000 and included the extruder. The last Finebilt press was made just after Lened came out with the first automatic record press in 1962-63.

As a manual press, the Finebilt is very rudimentary and basic though still fabulously effective.
