Sailboat steering wheel for a drive wheel (required changing the shaft on the driving sprocket to a 1" shaft to fit the standard 1" keyway in the wheel). I powdercoated the steel parts in a beautiful copper-vein hammered finish to complement the copper spacing pipes.

The press is installed at Saltgrass Printmakers ( where it's being used with great results!
