3 days until delivery

In three days, my new press will arrive! I'm so excited! I've been waiting for nearly two weeks. It's a table top letterpress made by the American Printing Company in Long Island. It's about 250 lbs and the chase is 6 1/2 x 10. The previous owner had a lever made since there wasn't one when he purchased it and it looks as if the blacksmith he hired seemed to have done a pretty good job. I'm still researching the press for more details.

It's clean and looks like it was well-loved. Here's a photo from the seller:

I'm hoping to have my camera ready when the truck arrives and the crate gets placed at the bottom of my driveway. Maybe I can sweet-talk them into hauling it up the driveway? I hope everything stays intact and nothing is broken. Crossing all fingers and toes! Stay tuned. The press is on its way from Virginia!
