I inherited this Vandercook Proof Press No. 0 from my mother-in-law (yes there are good ones out there) After several months of head-scratchin and a lot of "yah we should's" Eric and and I have finally put a plan in motion. It started with a W-D 40 bath for baby Vandercook. This poor guy had about 10 years or more of basement glazed on it. We took it apart, cleaned it and put it back together with no real trouble. They sure don't make'em like they used to. Soon we'll see if it will actually print.
