Little 'Gem'

I picked up a 'Gem' printing press from an older gentlemen. It dates back to the 1890's which is pretty cool! Had a good layer of dust on it so gave it a bit of a wash once getting it home and it looks better already. Managed to get a blind deboss print off it so it works, just need to get the rollers rerubbered before I can ink it up. Needs a bit of work to get it working to it's full capability but I think it's an awesome little piece of history with plenty of potential, I'm stoked!
