It's arrived! My Collie's Paragon (aka Collie) got here safetly early this afternoon. Not without a drama though:
- Couldn't back the 4 tonne truck up the driveway straight to the garage door, as it would crack the concrete. Driver had to park it on the road and wheel the press up the driveway with the pallet jack.
- Couldn't wheel the press up the driveway with just one man (and I'm no help) because the driveway has just the slightest incline where it meets the road.
- Called our Best Man for help. He came over as soon as he could and he and I pushed the press while the driver pulled it up the incline. From there it was smooth sailing.
I didn't get many photos of it all because I was trying to help.
Here's the before and after of our garage, which we're still cleaning out to convert to the new studio space:
Ken had labelled all of the pieces with their number and "LOUISE CANBERRA" which I thought was funny, because he didn't know my last name.

And here's Taylor checking out the press motor:
