Press mechanic needed in CT for a Colts Armory

We are looking for an experienced letterpress mechanic to help Yale University get a lovely Colt’s Armory press back into top operating condition. This is NOT a ground up restoration. Instead, this gorgeous 14 x 22 Colt’s was the mainstay of the Yolla Bolly press before it was donated to Yale, and it was in great condition.

The problem is that experienced letterpress mechanics are, as we know, hard to find, and subsequent to the move to New Haven, we haven’t been able to get it all spruced up and working again.

Please only respond to this request if you actually already have some experience working on parallel impression presses such as a Colts, Universal, or Thompson. Laureate, and can supply references, thanks!
