Good News and Bad News

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!
