Re: [BKARTS] lying press & plough history



I would also assume you could use this sander to do rounded corners on your blocks?? Something I'm quite interested in doing with some of my larger books.

Never thought of a large disc being useful, but also a large stationary belt sander might be nice too.. or even better, an oscillating belt sander! Mmm.. Power tools!!!!

Subject: [BKARTS] lying press & plough history

Anyone know when the lying press & plough was developed for trimming book edges? I looked through my books and found a picture from the 1700's but does the technology go back much earlier? And was anything used to trim before then?
