Have my C&P 8x12 all cleaned, oiled and ready to go (hopefully). I have the tympan paper and have been reading up on packing. Where do I find “pressboard”? And is it precut, or do I just cut it to the size of the platen?

He’s got the red pressboard, tympan and other packing. Looks like you’ll have to cut it down.
A decent substitute for the red pressboard is the green (sometimes blue) heavier file folder. Not the flimsy manila folder. The folder usually has a fabric hinge and the metal prong attached inside. Cut it apart.
