    I’m surprised you need to arrange transport any more, I think your yard has developed it’s own gravitational force and is starting to pull things in...

    That’s a rubber press.
    Crazy horse and myself are going to a factory on Wednesday that’s been making them since 1885.
    Unfortunately it comes to a end of a family run business. One brother is childless and the others brothers children have no interest.

    What a thing of beauty - very envious. You just don't see beautiful castings like that every day. Look forward to seeing this standing upright again in due course.

    Move and organise the press and parts. A good oiling and cover up until I sort my build base out 20200723_144317.jpg 20200723_144341.jpg 20200723_144408.jpg

    It's a quality piece, enjoyed the challenge of getting into small enough pieces so it could exit what has been it's home for decades and yes it's heavy :laughing:

    A fantastic job mate. Not only the height of it but the weight of the parts is absolutely crazy...

    Interesting they’re based in Kidderminster. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing, iirc, a 5000 tonne press in Kidderminster with @Richard.

    What’s are you going to do with it, just a nice ‘sympathetic’ restoration, or put it to good use?
