looking for a universal 1 in san francisco (not to buy)

hello! i am visiting san francisco this week, and want to take a gander at a universal 1. i have one in mexico, and it has several very strange quirks that i can’t seem to get figured out. i’m hoping that seeing one in good condition (and meeting with a fellow printer) will help illuminate the problems with mine. if you are in the area and know someone, i’d appreciate any contacts! many thanks.

    Quatrmass sold their Universal !-P to Peter Koch of Berkeley.
    Atelier Gargoyle moved out of town.
    CCSF (my alma mater) with a Uni I hand has their own problems (budget and accreditation), not likely to get any access there.
    Arion has a Uni III-P AB. M&H Type at the same location has a Uni I hand.
    Academy of Art probably has a Uni I hand.
    No idea what One Heart has.
    Outside the census there are Uni Is at Digger Pine Press and Quelquefois Presses in Berkeley, a Uni III hand at Mills College, and Uni III-Ps at Poltroon Press in Berkeley.

    thanks, paul! i tried looking on the census, but seems like there was an error, and i could only see 53 entries. i’ll look these guys up.

    Blair, a search of the census for “San Francisco” yields six Universals:
    Academy of Art
    Atelier Gargoyle
    City College of San Francisco
    Arion Press
    One Heart Press
    Quartermass Design
