New Lying Press

FedEx recently brought me my new lying press. I am using it to round the back of my replica of the 1777 New Testament original made by Robert Aitken. Alan Tarsia made it for me and it looks and works good. It has a built in base which my other lying presses lack.  It is also much taller than my others.  I may modify the metal plate at the top, but I am not sure.  Alan has also finished a book plough for me that should arrive any day. I look forward to giving it a try.  I will let you know how this new plough works.  You can see all that he makes and order from his company’s facebook page at TARSIA
