Guess what?! my etching press from the Conrad Machine Company finally finally arrived today!
Was a bit peeved that it took 3 months (almost 4 months?) to get here when the estimate time was 2 months. But when i called to ask what the heck is up with it and that i would really like it before Christmas, the lady i spoke to got back to me pretty quickly afterwards and here it is! yay!
Look at how it is packaged. It is held by wooden supports and screwed right to the box. Pretty sturdy packaging. Not a single wasteful un-biodegradable styrofoam material used. The press weighs 100 lbs. I am waiting to take it out because my place is a mess! and have to figure out how to rearrange my workspace. oh i am so excited.
So did i say i had a happy clutter before? it is not.
stupid book is still in progress...
