There are 10 files for the assembly of the proofing press. One is a master, or complete rendering of the press (using a small cabinet as a base). The other nine files are parts and exploded views of assemblies. There will also be a file that is a manual with instructions. This proofing press is the most DIY set of plans we offer. Depending on the hardware store, it is possible to buy everything you need to make a small proofing press at your locally owned hardware store. You can change the height of your proofing press to type high or any other height simply by making the aluminum angle at the exact right height or a raised bed etc. Choosing what you use as a base is the first step before you start to buy materials. As noted these files show a small cabinet made for two drawers that hold all the tools and paper. The S.C.O.P.E. is this press on a backpack which also holds the materials and tools. A proofing press this size can be put on almost anything that is flat! The easiest way is a piece of thick wood or metal of course.
The images below are taken from the Google Sketch Up files we used to make the manual. To receive a kit with the files, carriage parts, materials lists etc, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The starter kit for the proofing press costs 65 USD.
