 +//See// [[e:​empty-press|Empty Press]] — //​M//​.\\ ​
 +A press set apart to pull proofs at. It is generally an old press, that has become from age and wear unfit for regular business: the tympans are replaced by a thin iron frame, pierced with holes, within which is stretched a blanket, drawn tight by the edges and laced through these holes. This press is commonly so inefficient,​ that when a good proof is wanted, it is necessary to pull it at a press that is in working order. Some large establishments have good presses to pull proofs at, and, where the [[c:​composing|composing]] rooms are not on the same floor, have one in each room.
