Please feel free to toss down some additional funding...we still will need to build a stand for the press and I am sure there will be other associated costs I am overlooking!

WOW! Almost unbelievable. We made it...
Thank you to all my friends and supporters...Thank you GoFundme. Dreams do come true. The press will be on order shortly. Now to find a place to set it...it weighs in at 440lbs. My goodness! Now I need to build a shop...hmmmm LOL!
For those of you that made donations, all 20 of you; stay tuned...you will be receiving your gifts as soon as I get some work caught up. Plus I think I will do a special medallion for my contributors...we'll see. My mind is still reeling...what a strange trip this has been!

Hold the presses! The #4 press we were hoping to acquire from "Old World Anvils", is UNAVAILABLE at the moment! RATS!!!
The #5 press is a bit more, but it IS available! So here we go for a bit more work raising funds...I am sorry to have to plunge back in, but my friends-such is the nature of things at times. With shipping. it looks like we need to raise a total of $2040, that means we are only $390 short! I will be giving away cool presents to anyone that helps us nail this down. Thank you all.

Hello! My name is James Coffman, and I am a coin-maker. For almost 30 years I have worked as a reproduction coin-maker (or Moneyer) for fun. I have made thousands of coins for non-profit medieval (SCA) and other historical clubs. In 2012 I finally decided to make my hobby into a real business. But it takes time and capital to make things really take off. I could use your help! My original request was for enough funding to purchase a piece of equipment called a "screw press". We have since conducted research that revealed to us, a screw press would not be what we needed. We have therefore decided to pursue the construction of a Drop Hammer instead. The inital funds raised on GoFundme will be added to the ones we are asking for to see this thru. Thanks for looking.

James
