More Parts Arrive

After a brief exchange of emails, I met up with Jeremy again and received two more parts. The first of these was the repaired bar that fixes to the front of the bed and receives the tympan. The second was a beautiful hand-turned metal counterweight that fixes onto the tympan. These arrived in time to print some of the proofs from the larger blocks of theShakespeare illustrations I have been engraving for Barbarian Press. Everything worked like a dream. I definately need to recover the tympan but things are working well.

I am only short of the drop handle now. I will pass the details to J who thinks he can "fettle something". Firstly, I need to get another batch of work on eBay to finish paying for these latest pieces and to save for the handle.
