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 pieceā€¦ 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!).
