Oooh a nice new aquisition there. Don't worry about the thoughts of taking lessons before buying one - Ha! I got a Heidelberg 10x15 and I still dont know how to use it exactly. I'll figure it out right? Oh dear.

Oh, Maggie. You're the best.

Esz - Wow, a Heidelberg! That's an impressive first press. At least with those, the company's still around and there are lots of manuals, right? I'm looking forward to following your progress. Good luck!

Jen - Oh, Jen, thanks, but why? Anyway I hope you're feeling okay and hopefully I'll see you soon. You have to come over and see the beautiful Pearl!

I'm so glad you were able to get this press! Don't have any second thoughts, it was absolutely the right move. You're going to be able to do so much more and do it better. I've nothing against Kelseys but you can't beat a platen press like this, and Pearls are really nice machines, especially for their size. You've got a larger chase than a Pilot, a throw-off lever, and a treadle so you can control the speed and which takes up less space than a motor. Of course, a motor is always an option. It's fantastic!

And just think of all the history behind it! All the jobs it printed! And it's not that big and well worth the sacrifice of a dresser.

So, what else came with it? Eh? Eh? I think I see Challenge high speed coins and trucks on the delivery table. Did it come with usuable rollers? What kind of type? Inquiring minds want to know. Are you going to turn it to a bit of an angle so you get better access?

Congradulations!

Here's a link I think you'll find very interesting. I did and I don't even have a Pearl!
