TC Thompson No2 Gem

Hello Briar Press Community,

I’m sure this will be the first of many posts!

I have recently acquired a TC Thompson No2 Gem. After a near death experiance I can confirm she is now stood proudly in the corner of my conservatory.

Prior to her arrival me and my little Adana 8 x 5 where happy staying up until the early hours of the morning putting ink on paper. Things have now changed! I have bolts & levers that I have no idea what they do and feel totally out of my league. I have sent my rollers and runners off to Elli Evans in Milton Keynes ( who I must say where extremely helpful) and have now decided that the old girl needs a clean!

Is there any one out there that has any experience with this machine as I could do with a few questions answering.

Thank you
