Years of keeping eyes peeled (well actually Sunshine spotted it...) at charity shops/reclaimers/ebay etc have finally lead to a dream find... let me introduce you to the latest addition to the family: "Adony" (that's what Sunshine keeps calling it!) - a vintage Adana 8x5 in fully working order. We've de-gunk-ified and got all the parts oiled and moving. Need to invest in some rollers, ink, and type/image plates ... and we shall be in letterpress heaven! Wow-wee!!!
Note: It's tabletop sized - looks a bit big because of the angle the photo's been taken in ... See pic below of Sunshine reassembling it:
