I made an bottle-jack powered printing press today- scaled up and improved on plans from ReadyMade magazine. (their shaky one used bungee cords, mine uses springs and is wheel guided). ok I can go to bed now!
"DIY Mini Etching Press - an honest-to-goodness etching press for professional printing intaglio, linoleum cut, woodcuts and all printmaking." Expensive, but gorgeous and practical. I think it would be beautiful as a decor item!
