Participants will learn all the points of maintenance, cleaning, and lubrication so as to be prepared for potential problems and make or direct repairs. We will also discuss all models of interest and other brands as warranted. Whether you use studio presses, own a press, or are thinking of buying one, this workshop will provide excellent guidance. Bring your questions, photos and/or broken parts. Paul will also share examples from his collection of Vandercook literature.
