DIY printing press

I went over to Nim Wunnan's house (or rather, his parents' house) last night so he could demonstrate the linocut printing press that he and his step-father designed.

It worked fairly well, but I'm not sure it applies enough pressure evenly over the whole plate. Nim, who is very excited about the press, asked me if I wanted one. I didn't say one way or the other, but I thought to myself: is this really an improvement over my current set-up?

(Nim, I know it's more fun to build it yourself, but why not just use something like this?)
