Presses & Equipment
<p style="text-align: justify;">The aforementioned C&amp;P work horse, a couple of for-show Kelseys, a not-fully-assembled schneidewend Reliance iron hand press and a Hoe "Miles Nervine" proof press . lots of type -- but seldom just the right one for the job at hand.</p>
Education & Training
