New Year, New Press

This is my old press, the one that I built thirteen years ago.

I still plan to use it for most of my work.

Thats Grubby Green laying by the press...

 

This is my new press.  I bought it off ebay from a lady in Wisconsin.

I'll be able to print image sizes of 36" x 48".  Working on one right now...

It is a Conrad press.  The bed is 40 x 72. It weighs 2600 lbs.

I had to hire three people to help move it about three hundred feet

down the driveway, around the house, over about 40 feet of mulch,

Then I had to take out two big floor to ceiling windows to move it in the house.

The cost of freight and getting it into the house was almost as much

as I paid for the press itself.
