Cleaning a 99 year old press

Can anyone help me with what works best to clean the 99 years of old oil, ink and just plain dirt and grime off my C&P old style press?

I started with a Pressure wash and ample simple green, than plenty of elbow grease and the use of Water Misciple from IC Compound co as it does wonders in dissolving dried and baked on ink, attached before and after pics

That is a nice looking press.

Wow. It doesn’t even look like the same press!
