Hello, fellow printers. After years of searching for an SP-15, I’ve finally acquired one from Kurt Hansen in Auburn, California. It has been sitting for some time, however, and needs some service before it’s ready to roll. Though I am familiar with the operation of the press, I am not trained in how to restore or maintain it. It appears to be in very solid condition, it looks clean, but does have a bit of surface rust. Also, the press did tip over at one point during the move, but I believe that fall was absorbed by the sheet metal backing on the back of the press. Anyone who can offer some kind of checklist on how to get this thing fully operational would be much appreciated! I look forward to participating in your community of letter-geeks like myself. Thanks in advance.
