kingston hotpress

We passed by Tomas Benasso’s workshop a few days ago to gaze at the finished hotpress and go over some of the minor kinks that he’s going to work out during the next 2 weeks. It’s a mighty beast of a machine and a tangible measure of one of the things we’re trying to accomplish here in BA. The very good news (besides Tomas’ heroic work from Darko’s design) is that INTI’s Plastics Group has agreed to house the Kingston Hotpress and begin putting it through it’s paces, which will include property analysis and testing samples against local building and product codes and standards. We expect to begin our training sessions with the cooperatives in about 3 weeks.
