I've had some great questions about my cold press laminator and the modifications I've made to it to gear it up for printmaking. I've fastened it to a wooden platform that I can clamp to the table so it won't move when there's a lot of pressure while cranking; I've added basic registration marks to the pressure knobs so I can more accurately keep the pressure even across the drums; and I've changed out the original crank handle for a drill press handle, which is much easier to turn and keeps the bed moving more smoothly through the drums.
Here are some pictures of my modifications:
I'll see if I can get some time to print soon, and take some video so you can see how it all works!
