Have any of you used the Dick Blick 906 etching press? I think I'll get
the 36" phenolic bed plate, but wasn't planning (didn't budget) the
bench to go with it. Would I be able to put this on an audio visual
cart to push around? Or am I completely nuts and should instead buy
eight of the little Speedball presses which are currently on sale from
Dick Blick for $55.70? I am planning to use the presses for watercolor
monoprints (my plates are 5" X 7"), EZ cut Block prints (either 4" X 6"
or 6" X 8"), collographs, etc.
Eight students could print at once with the Speedball presses, but the
print size limit is 6" X 8". I figure this is my one and only chance to
buy a NICE printing press, but is the idea practical?
I'd really like to hear from someone who has used either one or both of
Thanks, Marcia Scurfield
