Leonardo da Vinci studied the Guttenberg printing press and finely-tuned it for greater efficiency. In his design , da Vinci used a handpress with an automatic system that moved the type-saddle forward and back along a tilted surface. His press used a double thread which would increase the travel of the press for each turn made of the lever.
The scientific genius of Leonardo da Vinci is brought to life through this articulated model. The invention that inspired this snap-together replica is taken from the pages of da Vinci’s priceless and awe-inspiring notebooks. The model is made of plastic and requires no special tools. Manual is very educational and teaches how this invention has evolved into what it is today.
