A week after moving the Raky Press Model 31 Linotype it was time to move their Miehle model V50 "Vertical" cylinder printing press. This press is a later version of my Miehle V36, but heavier. (The "50" in V50 is the number of impressions per hour, in hundreds. Thus it can do 5,000 impressions/hour. My V36 can only do 3,600, but it's prettier.)
Loading the press. Ky is at the pallet jack, while I'm operating a come-along. Even though the street is downhill, the shallow ramp of the tail of the trailer is slightly uphill. One nice thing about a drop-bed trailer is that when the bed is on the ground there's a nice, safe area in front of the bed, protected by the steel rails of the bed, where you can stand to do things like this.
