End of the Journey - the 2200 lb Reliance Press arrives

The Red Onion Press team finally delivers the Reliance Book Press just in time for the Open House and Unveiling! A thirty foot climb up a steep creek bed, a 4 foot wall and and a lawn made for a challenging effort.

The Reliance Press, one of the last of the big Washington Hand Presses that date back to the early 19th Century will now be reassembled and used as our primary book press as we launch our book publishing effort.
