Re: AKUA Pin Press for Large Linocut print?

You can get a high quality heavy rolling pin (high quality so it won't bow in the center) for a quarter of the price of that. Having not seen it in person though, I don't know if there are qualities about the pin press that might make it worth the price.

mostly that it is machined to be very precisely flat I think.
