Homemade woodblock printing press part 3

Well here is an update on the homemade press.

I designed all the gears, printed them out. Then tacked them to 3/4 inch plywood, drilled holes and then used my band-saw to cut out the teeth. Also did the Rack Gears (flat ones). Then I attached everything together, centered and aligned.

I had to cut out some circular disks to stop the gears from rolling off the table rack gears.

This all worked really well!

Added a handle and it was ready to try.
