Thanks Jon,

It's an American French Tool Press by Conrad Machine Co.  I got a table top model that will handle 18" wide paper.  It may also be a great pasta machine.  Josephine Sacabo had just gotten the big brother to this machine when I worked with her last fall on polymer plate photogravure—it was great fun.  Unfortunately it takes 3-4 months to build and deliver. 

I think I got "big" out of my system with inkjet printing hehehehe.

Best Wishes,
Mark Nelson

It's AlIVE! IT'S ALIVE!  THE ALT PHOTO LIST IS ALIVE!!!!  Chris must have given it an enema.

Congrats on the press Mark!  What kind did you get?

But 'little'?  I'm doing 20x30" now and they are available at 30x40"...and even larger, so I've been told.

Larger plates present a new set of problems, but they are still alot of fun to work with (more so when the pesky contact issues have been overcome).
