They send me a photo of an old large box camera vertical adjuster and ask me if this would work as a printing press. $43.00 bucks! Dang right it will and the traveling bed is 12" x 28". Sweet! Now I just have to rig up an adjustable top roller to apply pressure and then turn the crank!
I will continue to work on my cheap and dirty gravity printing press's since its designed to print plates just under 2 x 4 FEET.
In the mean time I will work on both types of presses.
Above is what they saw at the antique store this morning.
|Here I took off all the bits that I didn't need|
|Here you can see the bed that moves back and forth when you turn the crank. Super!|
|Now I just have to add a top roller to apply pressure like from this picture and I have a printing press.|
