Edu Toys presents the da Vinci Printing Press Model Kit. Leonardo da Vinci studied the Guttenberg printing press and finely-tuned it for greater efficiency. In his design , da Vinci used a hand press 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 series of articulated models. The inventions that inspired these snap-together replicas are taken from the pages of Da Vinci’s priceless and awe-inspiring notebooks. All models are made of plastic and require no special tools. Manuals are very educational and teach how these inventions have evolved into what they are today. For Ages 8 and up.
