I have a new press
Yeah, I got me an old ‹FAG Control 405›. Yes, this is really the name of the press. Haha. Its a Swiss made halfautomatic! Watch me as I am running it for the first time. Not printing, just running the press just for the use of running it...
This press is from the late 60ies an has all the features you'd wan't to have in a letterpress. It is a halfautomatic (no hand cranking on that one), has an adjustable bed, an automatic washup (who want's to clean that?) and a safety stop. So this one is a very fine 40+ year old, 650+ kg in weight piece of technique that might have another 40years to go! So I don't wanna move it & i have to print until I get retired. Haha.
