The Columbian platen press arrival
With the help of a local engineering firm and my friend Paul the last and heaviest part of the Columbian Press arrived at its new home.
It arrived on a truck with an engine hoist of the back and three chaps from Sweeting Engineers, It had been shuffled out of a building, down a slope onto something a little more even, then the hoist took over, the feet came off and it was laid in the back of the wagon for its drive to Bracken Press.
