 +====== Hind Posts and Rails ======
 +
 +Two upright posts mortised and tenoned into the feet at the back of the wooden press; two rails connect these posts behind; and two rails on the off side and two on the near side connect them with the [[c:​cheeks|cheeks]],​ by mortises and tenons.
 +On the top rails a thin deal covering is laid loose, that it may be lifted off, to allow access to the long [[r:​ribs|ribs]],​ and to hang the [[p:​platen|platen]] when necessary; it prevents dirt and other matter from falling on the ribs, and serves for a temporary shelf. The ink block is attached to the near rails. ​
