Golding *Pearl* Old Style No. 1
Here are 2 videos of my Pearl Old Style No. 1 This press was cast in 1890,
It was acquired in Duluth Minnesota
It was owned by the Scott Free Press.
I believe they had owned it since the 1950's
After I got it I did a compete overhaul,
disassemling the press, soda blasting all parts
to clean a century of old dried ink and bad paint jobs.
Repainted her, highlighting the oil ports and detailed all the frame cast type in gold.
It is now ready to run or continue updating to a museum quality restoration.
