First I will start with the good news: my Adana press has arrived! I was so excited when I got the notice that it was available for pick up, and I could not wait to open up the box, pull out my new press and begin to work with it.
Now the bad news ….. once I opened the box, I discovered some damage from shipping. The ink disk was badly broken in the centre, and is now unusable. As well, there is a crack on one side of the arm. This is quite unfortunate, but not devastating. The person I bought the press from is being very helpful. All this means is that it will take a bit more time before my press is up and running, but since I still need some key items before I can actually start printing this is fine. Fingers crossed that this gets worked out, and I have a new ink disc coming my way soon!
