I made the decision recently to combine our two studios and move the operation into Canberra, where I live with Pam. I love Braidwood, but running between two studios has been time consuming, and having a largely empty house in a small country town surrounded by fires during the recent “bushfire season” has been a worry. Yesterday, after having made room in the Canberra place for the Hilton, it was time to move the big press for the sixth (and penultimate?) time in 35 years. This time we did it with a crowbar, a pallet trolley, a crane and a huge forklift. Watch out for installation shots. Just need half a wall replaced at the other end. These things are 1.5m wide, so the big sliding door wasn’t enough to accommodate it.
