My "New" Press!

Whew! What a day! In 100+ degree weather here in LA, with the help of good friends, we loaded (and then unloaded) the 400lb. press and the type cabinet full of type! Here are some pictures of the cabinet and the press in my new studio! I still have to put the press back together and fix up the press, but here are the first pictures! I'll post more pictures once I get the rest of the place cleaned up!

i've been reading your blog for a while now. it's been a lifesaver since i've finally taken the plunge into letterpress. i've got my hands on a 7x11 pearl press. i notice that your pearl is on carpet. that will be my situation too (rare it seems!). i have several concerns. one of which is the condition the carpet will be in once the press is removed from the room. will the carpet be completely damaged due to the pressure and weight?
