Just like Christmas!

Brand-spanking new rubber rollers ordered from Ramco Roller Products in San Diego - so nice and squishy. Here they are on the press right out of their wrappings:

The rollers look perfect, but they are slightly rubbing the chase clamp as they roll over the top of it - not ideal. Another problem added to the things to fix list.

My lot of rust-encrusted letterpress junk from ebay also arrived this weekend: a counter, a slug cutter, composing sticks, a key and quoins, lots o' rule, and other random pieces I probably don't need. The composing sticks are particularly nasty. Lookey!
