My manual for the Universal III shows that it was available with either a 42 inch or 30-inch feed board. Both of my Universal IIIs have the longer one, but also have a bed extension at the far end of the press bed. This makes the press awkwardly long and difficult to get around in my studio. My option is either to eliminate the bed extension (this requires modification of the adjustable bed mechanism) or shorten the feed board.
So my question is this- does anyone have a Universal III with the shorter 30-inch feed board? Do you find it to be sufficient?
