Shin Nihon Zokei press restoration

 This press was bought on an online auction by Jo, a graphic designer, who arranged for me to pick it up for her and restore it. She lives and works down in the Wairarapa and the press was in Hamilton not for from me.. So here it is, safe and sound at Classic Etching Presses casualty word getting Dr John's TLC. She is dirty rusty and missing many bits and pieces. A couple of weeks in Classic Etching Presses casualty ward and we have a complete recovery.. Posing for a pic in the studio and then working in Jo's studio

                                                                To be continued...
