Side board feed drawer
- I've finally found a local joiner who will use the tool drawer from my Arab
Press as a model to copy. It'll have a walnut front and no drawer pull.
These have two wooden runners screwed under the side board so the drawer
slides out on them, the runners fitting into the rebated sides of the
drawer. It holds the screwdriver and keys or spanners for the press, and so
forth. On the Arab they were standard kit, but are useful for any platen.
I'll post pictures of the old one and the replacement in a week or so for
those who can't get my description, and then I'll take orders. The more we
order, the cheaper they'll be, and it's reckoned that 15 will be a full days
work. So this is a forewarning for those who'd like to think about it.
