Good but could be better
The fit of the pre-drilled plates was spot-on and no trouble to install. The instructions did not quite match the number of parts received, and using the best arrangement of washers and pins the plates didn't quite leave room for the wheels received; fortunately it was easy to narrow them by the necessary 1/8" with a belt sander, and fortunately I have such a tool. The retractable design works smoothly but I'm not convinced it's really necessary. The holes in the frame for the handle bolts were a bit tight but once everything was together it all worked reasonably well. Off-the-shelf parts would probably have cost slightly less, but it would have taken much more time to build a similar system from scratch. As long as it holds together for the life of the press, I'll be satisfied.
