Etching Press Restoration

 This press was at a School and fairly wrecked over time by the students and came home to the Press Hospital to be made all better. Dented rollers, drive cog out of alignment and teeth broken and many teeth with stress fractures, missing drive handles and missing pressure screw handles, dirty rusty faded and scratched..
The rollers have been trued. The missing bits fabricated and a new drive cog and a correction to the drive cog's alignment is being made.
 Watch this space...

24 Inch Table Top Press

A young Christchurch print maker ordered this press, paid a deposit and waited while I created it.
Here it is just finished and posing on the kitchen table before going the next day to Christchurch
