I have a bottle jack press I made and a line -o- scribe press that I use some times. but most of my work I use a furniture slider as a barren and hand rub. What have you got and how do you get it done?

merdoc,

great photo, yr hand-made jack press is wonderful, what is a furniture slider and how is it used?

i have the use[friend has shop]of old30s-40s standard proofing press made in kalamazoo michigan.

it is small, bed is maybe 1ft wide by 4ft long. there is both metal&wood type with 2-3 drawers

of small dingbats. i have also printed with wood and lino-block. i am definitely not a "printer"

but enjoy the ink on paper process, happy printing! cb.

This is my Line o scribe press. 14x22" bed. A furniture slider is a very slippery  plastic disk that goes under the legs of a piece of  furniture so it is easy to move around. I use them slippy side down to hand rub prints.

Thanks for the furniture slider idea for rubbing by hand. I'll use that!

Interesting — I'd never seen a Line-o-Scribe, was this the sort of thing used for showcards in department stores? It looks like a proof press but they don't usually have the typecases built in like that.
