The extravagant design, incorporating levers and counterweights, was quite original, but Clymer did not find a market in the United States. His Columbian Press was inspired in part by the earlier English Stanhope press. Clymer found a limited market for his press in the United States, so in he moved to England to compete in the European market with the Stanhope Press, and later with the Albion press. Clymer made a success of his press-manufacturing business, and spent the rest.
