My old instructor used to talk about how the choice many student printmakers face when they graduate was sometimes between replacing a vehicle and getting a press.  In my case the press won early. 

The press was the biggest hurdle for me.  I think Dick Blick has a a small press that isn't completely terrible for something in the $400-$600 range.  It can print up to a 9" x 12" plate, but it requires a certain amount of arm strength because it doesn't have any real gearing to transfer rotation from the crank to the rollers.  I find Ferric Chloride, while not without a need for ventilation, does not require the same constant industrial set up as hydrochloric or nitric or sulfuric do.  The vertical bath is nice for storage as well.  The ventilation for the hot plate for cooking grounds was more challenging, but a respirator and a garage door will do wonders.

hmmmm, I wonder, how long it would take to etch a copper plate using Ferric Chloride?...

It depends on what kind of etch you want.  I mostly learned etching with a 10:1 dutch mordant bath, so all of my times are based around that.  Ferric etches about twice as fast as a 10:1 dutch mordant.  If you're looking for a rich black aquatint, ferric will get you there in around an hour, in my experience.

hvaen't done it in years, but what I use to do was intaglio, simply libes scraped out or dry point

Drypoint and engraving are fantastic.  No chemicals....

never did much dry point though... and never have done any engraving, though I'd love to try some time... everything I did was etchings... .. I've always been a big fan of Albrecht Dürer, Gustave Dore and Max Ernst., back then I rushed everything, nowadays I think I would have more patience and do much more planning, can't wait until I can pick it up again... guess the big expenditure would be the press, some good paper and some resin, I still have tons of copper plate  :boogie:

The press is the big ticket item.  There are some small ones for $500-600 available from Blick, but they have no gear ratio, so they can be hard to turn at high pressure and they can't fit paper larger than around 11 x15".  The acid bath takes some doing as well.  The vertical ferric bath requires the least ventilation, but it's not exactly cheap either.  I think when I set myself up with my first press (one of the Blick Econo-Etch IIs) and the ferric and blankets and grounds it ran me around $1100.00. 

If I hadn't been as rabid about it, I probably would have signed up for time at a shop in town where you can basically rent print shop time.  If there's one near you, it may be worth trying as a way to get back into it without the big sticker cost.
