It's Here!!! (West Coast)



After much anticipation, my big baby has actually arrived. An 8" x 12" Chandler & Price Old Style baby that is.

We have had four weeks of bad weather. This week was nice and sunny, and the person who was delivering my press was available to deliver today. So today is the day! I am so excited to start playing around. Alan and I cleaned out the garage space this weekend, and made room for the new press. The space still is a work in progress, but it is looking pretty good. I can't wait to ink this baby up. It is in really good condition, after I oil up the stiffer moving parts, it should be good to go. Maybe Friday!

I'm excited for you and a wee bit jealous.

Thanks for your well wishes. Unfortunately I have had odd appts. during the day today... Tomorrow I will test her out. Hopefully I will have the printing luck with me. I might lock up the chase tonight. I am really excited too!
