Hi Bryan

I'm also a beginner, and have a pilot as my first press. I'm having a blast
with it!
It is a very managable press for a beginner, and it helps that the platen
closes only when
you pull the lever (as opposed to a press with a motor).

Tom Conlon in Hawaii has samples printed with a pilot. They are on the web at:

He sent me several samples on the antique card stock. They look very nice!

You just need a seasoned printer to give you a push in the right direction.
Once you're up and running, you'll be able to do some nice work with the
pilot. It's a good press to learn make ready on too.

Check out the samples. I think you'll be inspired.
