School seeking letterpress donations

The Albuquerque Academy is an independent school, grades 6-12, in Albuquerque, NM, and we are establishing a letterpress printshop. Some essential equipment has been purchased by the department, and a significant donation of type cabinets with full cases has been generously given by a retired local printer. We are in need of a flat bed proof press, such as a Nolan, Showcard or Line-O-Scribe, as well as a table top platen, preferably 6x10 or 5x8. We are also looking for a good quality slug cutter. If you are interested in donating to a great cause, please consider us. We would be willing to cover all packing and shipping costs (US only). This is a perfect opportunity for you to dust of a piece of equipment, support the inclusion of this beautiful craft in a focused school curriculum, and get a nice tax deduction at the same time.
