Although there are heaps of letterpress bits and pieces floating around, not much is for sale in Australia online. Most is from the US and because it all made of lead, the expense of shipping its far too excessive, even postage from the East is a bit steep. So begging, and scrounging is the only option. But hey it does the trick!
My latest adventure I came away with 4 quins, a quoin key, strips of furniture (that was even cut down for me) a tin of paint that was rescued from the dumpster some spacers, tympan sheets and a new friend! If this ink works (its for offset printing but could be ok) then I'm able to go back for another 50 tins!
