Constantly Adjusting

Ever since I started handling letterpress printing in-house, the shop has brought me moments of utter delight and sheer terror. Those moments usually occur consistently in two distinct parts of the shop. Delight at the press. Terror at the cutter.I've hated my cutter since the day I bought it.
