My first Vandercook proof press in the US is a Universal I, all electric. The press is in our garage here in Belvedere, which was built for the big cars of the 50s. The press was so filthy that I have spent the past two weeks cleaning it. Now the rust and the grime are gone, as are my fingernails. The paint is partly gone and the blank metal looks uneven, so I had to submit these photographs to quite a bit of Photoshop treatment in order to make them at least look nostalgic, if not technically precise.
