Anatol Tornado Manual press description

The Anatol Tornado manual screen printing press has the heavy-duty construction and easy-to-use, feature-packed design of our full size Lightning with a smaller footprint. With a diameter of 8’2″ (249cm), the Tornado is our most compact manual press. Built for strength and durability, while also being lightweight and ergonomic; the Tornado is a perfect entry-level machine for new screen printers or shops looking to add a manual press to their existing operation without a lot of space to spare.
