Etching Press Restoration - enquiries: johnmulvay@gmail.com

 This press was found in a shed, lonely scruffy and neglected and with it's print roller out of round and dented, missing pressure screw handles and no press bed .
A corner of the studio was converted to a press hospital and it was made all better and sold to a Christchurch print maker who prints large woodcuts. It's rollers are 740 wide and I made a press bed 1600 long for it's new owner and supplied new felt, full size, to match

Here is the restored press at the furniture removal company I use to ship these things around, on the first leg of it's journey to it's new Christchurch home,
