Leveling the Platen

I just thought I’d mention that I went ahead and leveled my platen on my C&P 10x15 OS today with great success!

I was very reluctant to do it as I am so new to letterpress, but I decided to give it a go after I noticed a pattern it my impressions being much weaker to the right side of the platen.

If you’ve never leveled your platen and are interested, this site was of great help: http://bit.ly/bCAstg

The entire process took about 15 minutes.
