spring cleaning


Yesterday, I did a little cleaning to make room for the newest addition to my studio!  This press belonged to my grandfather, who passed away a little over a month ago.  (He had actually promised the press to me before he died.)  My grandfather was a machinist, and has more tools than I've ever seen in my life.  My press needs a few small modifications before its functioning, but hopefully that will be very soon.

That is a very cool press! I'm excited to see what you make with it! And I'm sorry about your loss. Your grandfather must have been very proud of you.

What a great inheritance! I can't wait to see what you make with it. It looks humongous.
