Wishful Thinking (West Coast)



I am in the process of looking for a new press. It is time to expand around here. This is one I am close to purchasing, and if all goes smoothly, I will have this baby in my shop sometime next month. Just need to do a bit of coordinating.

I have been struggling with my current press for a while. I think I want it to do more than it is capable of doing. I love it, and it has served me well. But it is time for a bigger machine. I am looking at a 8 x 12 C & P floor model. I think that is a good size for what I want to do, and it will fit into my shop area without feeling cramped. I have been working hard these past few months making space for my workshop in our small garage. I have a nice area carved out, and will probably add a few more improvements before my new press moves in. I am really excited though! This will make my printing life go much smoother!

How very, very exciting! I will keep my fingers crossed that the deal goes down with out a hitch. (I'm jealous).

I have a 8x12 chandler and price I call him ross. and I love him. I started off with a table top 6x10 victor Kelsey and while I hated to see him go, I love having the big guy around a print run goes so much faster and I have a lot more control over the impression. Good luck to you

Thanks for the encouraging words! I was thinking about a name as well. I saw that on someone else's blog, and thought that was pretty cool!
