Printing press

This is a model based off the old drum presses from the 1880s. It's done in 40mm scale. I didn't draw plans for it, but I tried to take a few stage photograps to give you an idea of how it went together. The main drum (the red cylinder) was made by sawing a section out of a pen lid (you can see the pen in one of the photos.) The rest of the press was bass wood, brass rods, a few plastic I-beam parts, and a few gears from a differential gear set made for RC cars. The base is a couple Games Workshop 40mm bases placed together.

  1. Thanks for the TMP link - I first picked up on your Blog when you built the sawmill, I like the way that you make pieces with bits-and-pieces from the spares box and scrap.

    Keep up the great work and I look forward to seeing more.
