  • Brilliant work Kevin! I think Jason, that this suggests to me that you would be better using the width of the bed rather than the length of the bed when printing a broadside. The pressure will still be there, but the support along the length of the roller should give a better printed result. Worth a try.

  • Quarter inch bar is not likely to be flexing over 27 or so, inches, unless under pressure - I'd first look to the problem as more likely to be in the pressure of the ink distribution system being mal-adjusted. But as I remember it, the ink distribution mechanism just works by friction on the inking roller - it would be odd indeed in Vandercook didn't get that right and no-one...

  • Type high bearers pretty much take care of this. You’ll figure out yourself how fussy you are happy with being, as soon as you gain experience with the printed images.

  • By the term “from a practical point of view”, I should think “about zero” is what these little machines are worth – they aren’t good for practical work in printing, but I reckon they sure do put a lot of people off printing when they see what a lousy job they are capable of doing. In the hands of an experienced printer I daresay that you could get a half decent...

  • One cannot do as you suggest with the configuration of the List - everything goes through the moderator and there is no option of "Reply to sender" other than the one this email has gone to. Incidentally ebay gives international shipping as an option for the seller, but the seller has to know that to make the choice. Most of the refusals don't realise that and have simply not...

  • The down side though, is that no-one will recognise what we do for what it is. And then who buys it? I’m not doing this for a hobby; it’s the vocation through which I make my living. Anyway, ‘no push back against ignorance’ should never be contemplated in any circumstance. Graham Graham Moss Incline Press 36 Bow Street Oldham OL1 1SJ England http://www.inclinepress.com If...

  • It's a misunderstanding of the term. A master printer was simply the man who owned the shop, and thus was the master of the workmen. In other words, he was the employer. Here the Federation of Master Printers, which still exists I'm led to believe, is what we refer to as a 'bosses union'. How on earth it came to be used for a craftsman in the US, I have no idea, but either it's...

  • I've never been much in favour of messing with books like this, but the whole story has charmed me. Thanks Gerald!
