Artist's comment: Dustin telephoned me from Wyoming and ordered his press in mid-September of 2010, and I shipped it near the end of April. I could not resist telling him his name, Dustin, was one of my pseudonyms, a name I used in some videos and which is also the lead's name in my screen play, "Dusty's Prize."
