Yesterday was another banner day for moving large pieces of heavy equipment. The brother and I have been working on restoring a MultiLith 1250 to working order for a couple years now---it's a single color off-set press and it appears to be ready to get back to work. And in the interest of consolidating all print operations, it was agreed that it should reside in the capable and productive confines of 43rd Parallel Press.
We got it onto the trailer with the assistance of a come-along, some strapping and a custom built dolly (thanks, Rich---for all of that).
The trip across town was uneventful; it didn't tip over or anything--I'm sure you would have heard about that. It just kind of bounced on its dolly in a jaunty fashion.
And here's our friend, about to make it's new home in the Bayside Neighborhood. If all goes well, it should prove to be a sturdy workhorse for both Strong Arm and the 43rd. Updates to come.
