Missing Letterpress Part: Somewhere on Rte. 1 between Tryon and Charlottetown?

It seems that an important part of my Golding Jobber letterpress is missing. As it was on the press when we started moving it, it’s likely, because it wasn’t firmly bolted on, that it went missing somewhere between Tryon and Charlottetown, rattling off the press and perhaps onto the side of the road.

It’s a flat piece of iron, about 18 inches long, with 4-6 bolt holes and two larger holes.

On the off chance that you found it, and have been holding on to it in anticipation of someone looking for it, here’s a couple of pictures showing the part. If you’ve found it, please let me know!

I know it&#39s pretty low tech — but did ¥ou try putting a notice on the radio stations?

Horrible. Are the blueprints available? Or does the part have a mate that would give the dimensions? I imagine somebody could machine a new one for you.
