Moving day for our letterpress

Our letterpress made its way to our workshop today!
With the help of some amazing professionals the move was effortless and complete in two hours!

Once it arrived I couldn't help myself - I got to work straight away and started scrubbing off years of grime, dust, oil and grease. Three hours later I felt like I had only scratched the surface, which has me reconsidering if I will repaint or not, as I'm not sure I can get to all the grime and how long it will take.
I guess I will just have to wait and see...

If I have to stick with the green, its not such a bad thing.
It reminds me of Kermit, my all time favourite frog :)

On goes the crane belt.

Holding my breath as she goes up

Between 400-600kgs up in the air.

Onto the truck

Unloading at LPHP HQ

Its a spectators sport.

It took three men to guide this letterpress into our workshop

In she goes.

Home, safe and sound! :)

There was paint under all that black grime!

I think I'm going to be here for days scrubbing away...
