Problem: Six Hundred Pound Etching Press. Solution: Smart Husband.

So, in the ongoing studio remodeling project, Joe reached a point of major challenge this week: the need to remove the last section of old-carpet-over-linoleum covering the foundation under the etching press. How to move the heavy press without calling on brawny friends or professional movers? He jacked up the ends, one at a time, and placed steel pipes underneath. Then, with the press on "rollers," he pushed it three feet to the side. Very, very clever, I say.

Mission accomplished. The etching press had been next to the window, with a 4'x 6' patch of carpet and linoleum under it.
