Kelsey 5x8, needs restoring

I have a Kelsey 5x8 that was damaged in shipping when I bought years ago (due to the sellers putting it in the box with no packaging materials). I had the ink plate welded together so it would be at least all in one piece, and decided to keep it as my own little museum piece… never got it in working order.

Now I feel like it needs to be put to better use, even if I am attached to it. If anyone feels like taking on a restoration project, please make an offer. Rollers are not usable.

Pick-up only in Santa Rosa (the poor thing probably shouldn’t be shipped again- still traumatized from it’s careless trek from Pennsylvania!).
