Shin Nihon Zokei - The Sixth Restoration

Six of these I have restored. It is becoming a familiar process.. excellent presses just a little small at 400ml wide; 16inches. About a 2.5 to 1 gear reduction. 
Below what Jo's press looked like before restoration; rust and missing handles no bed no felt..
a week or so at Classic Etching Presses Emergency Ward for a big dose of TLC and all is well

  1. Beautiful work on the restoration!

    I found one of these presses during a property clean up... Hope i can find it a home! Curious as to what they cost before restoration at auction?
