On building presses

I’m interested in building my own printing press, which probably won’t go any further than that because I have all the power-tool talent of a chimpanzee.  Anything other than light drilling would inevitably lead to a trip to the hospital and a post later on explaining why I would have to give up my art aspirations, as I now have ten toes and two thumbs.  But still, one can look, and I like the letterpress project I found the other day on BoingBoing.  Anyway, new ideas and all, but realistically, I’ll probably stick to printing by hand, and take an official letterpress class somewhere sometime.  Still, it seems like a good fit with some of the project ideas I’ve been having lately.
