Re: [PPLetterpress] Moving Vandercook
- Good Afternoon:
My profound thanks to all who responded to my plea for advice on moving a
Vandercook proof press. I feel a
lot more confident that I can accomplish this move safely. Safely for myself
, safely for any helpers whom I will certainly have at my side, and safely
for the press. Thank you again!

Soon I will be attempting to move a Vandercook Universal 1 proof press. It
will not be far; one room to another, (garage to basement), all on one level
on a concrete floor. I plan on placing two 2"x6"s under it, to serve as a
skid, and try to move it on 1" iron pipes. It will not matter if I can only
move it an inch at a time. I will be attempting this on my own.
I would appreciate any and all sound advise members would like to offer.
My brother tried to move a similar press a few years ago: with disastrous
results. As a result of his experience I will be very cautious.
