Speedball stamp press
Have you ever heard of one? Have you seen one? Chances are likely that you haven't! Way back in one of my High School art classes we used something a little simpler for our linoleum block presses, it worked great! Back in November I decided I needed to try and find a small press for my rubber stamping. I have a ligament injury in my hand and short of standing on top of my stamps I was having a difficult time getting good images consistently. I love Magenta stamps and have a nice collection of them, but they are usually mounted on very thick wood blocks, that thickness makes it hard for my to hold an put pressure on.
|The press and stamping area are 8x10 |
When the press is not in use it only requires about 4" over vertical storage area
So I think this is one of those tools, that really is worth the money. There is a 5 minute learning curve, easy to store, you can't hurt your self and it will last decades. The foam pad might need to be replaced at some point, but I can't foresee that being any kind of problem.
My Ecraft machine Shipped back to the factory yesterday. to be repaired or replaced! So sad seeing it go, but I am hoping to have it back next week . This is a great machine, mine I think was a lemon.
In another blog I will have another tool to talk about , This is supposed to be the best cutter on the planet: and the price tag to go with it! Except for mine, mine was a 32.00 total (the 12" sells for 296.00, 16"- 396.00!!!!) it may be here today or tommorow.
Have a great Day!
