Modern Steel Hand Press??



One wonders whether there exists in 1998 a market for a steel hand press
configured much like the Stanhope Press of 1800, with a mahogany-faced
steel platen, and a granite imposing stone. The press might have a
hinged tympan and frisket, a rounce, and a lever-pulled impression screw
and be inked with a hand roller, or ink balls. The press steel would
bolt together, and come apart for shipping and moving. And it would
print a full form, be fine-thread adjustable, and be more than suitable
for wood cuts, and octavo books. And it would be light enough for the
second, third, or tenth floor. This press might cost between $1000 and
$2000. Any interest, comments, or encouragements?   -)Neil Giroux
