Hi all,

Fol­low­ing my attend­ance on a recent print­ing work­shop I have been bit­ten by the bug and am very inter­ested in pick­ing this up on my own as a hobby. With this in mind I am look­ing for a flat­bed let­ter­press, prefer­ably tab­letop due to space avail­able to me.

If any­one becomes aware of one avail­able to pur­chase, if you could let me know it would be very much appre­ci­ated.

Thanks and Kind Regards

Richard
