    Great video!

    I recognized the printing press shown on one page. It is a Miehle Vertical and I ran one just like it in the 1970’s myself, among others. They are very good presses, almost as good as the Heidelberg Plattens, often called “windmill” presses, which I also ran back then. I was a pressman in a small job printing company back then and my job required me to be proficient with five different presses, two letterpress and three offset presses up to a 22 inch press. I did pretty much everything with those presses right up to four color process printing. Back then if you bought a Gasoline container from Standard container with a yellow and red tag hanging from the spout you saw my work. I have some really nice memories from that work.
