A Worthy Challenge
Updated: Jan 29, 2021
Moving a 1000lb+ antique cylinder press from Hamilton to Toronto
Are you im-pressed? To the left, Sara and Phoebe move the press out of Sara's studio and begin the long and arduous journey of getting it down to street level, up into a too-high trailer, to Toronto, and into Flycatcher Press headquarters. Rather than bore you with the whole story. I will say it involved many impromptu, death-defying stunts and a myriad of players stepping in to help out including helpful wood workers, a man on the street and a couple of sewer grates. Please enjoy the slideshow below and comment or email me if you have any questions about moving a super heavy press in the future because I definitely have to suggestions as to what we would have done differently!
