Oh man I love that press.
So do I.
I`ve recently been working for Paul Herman who builds the Wal Basses. Wal Basses and Electric Wood Limited Home Page They have a facing front and back with a veneer between the core and each facing. It`s a lot of glueing up. He has a similar press.
It makes the job not only easier but you are also sure to have a perfect joint as there are no cauls to flex and no areas you cant get a clamp on.
After I`d used it a few times I was determined to get one of my own. £250 and a 500 mile round trip later, I do.
It`s also large enough that I have a partly formed plan to try some 335 type pressed tops. I don`t think it wil be any time soon though!
