I teach at a university that has a Vandercock SP20.
I am looking for advice on how (if anyway possible) to alleviate uneven inking due to small pits in a press bed. We have a thin sheet of metal over the press bed to create the proper printing height, but we are still having inking issues. I have recently become aware that the press had severe rust, which was most likely the cause of the pits.
My first thought is to replace the metal sheet but I am not sure if doing so will resolve the underlying problem.
Thanks in advance for the advice,
