[BKARTS] Building your own press...



Kathy,

Here are a few links for building your own press,

I have some instructions for making a simple portable press on my site at http://www.tjbookarts.com/guides.htm

Also, here's one from the tutorials section of the Book Arts List http://www.philobiblon.com/nigropress/index.html

Another one, not so portable but easily buildable, http://www.woodblock.info/bottlejack/index.html

And another one, http://www.mossworks.com/techniques.html

Hope this helps.

So I have a question for the list: Is there a way to make a portable book/paper press from supplies available from a local hardware store? Or do you need to buy one from a manufacturer? And if so, what are the recommendations either way?

Thanks,

Kathy
