Before and After
Here's a quick post to show some of the progress on the 10x15. There is almost no rust at all but a lot of the usual buildup of ink, grease, oil, dirt, sludge, glop, ick, slime, and what otherwise can make the press look bad and run worse.

The press had sat idle for many years after regular use and everything just hardened up and turned to glue. But it's getting there.
