The New Press.
My new single screw laying press. Based on my old one but improved. The woods used are reclaimed so a low carbon footprint there. The backing boards locate on the cheeks with aluminium studs (my originals being located with old bits of dowel)
A thing of joy and beauty.
I always edge the backing boards with masking tape as this helps to keep things clean and I can see when a student has hit the backing boards and not the book!
I have a favourite plough, Jim (the guy who made the press) ensured that the plough and press work together....
I LOVE this press.... The press was made by Jim at Olive and Oak. www.oliveandoak.com
