These strips are shaped 45 to conform to the edge of the bed and head re overcome or minimized. According to the present invention, there is spectively and to overlap the top of the bed and provided a strip of ?exible material, such as sheet the bottom of the head for a short distance, as shown. These strips can be made of suitable ?exible metal, so shaped as to conform to and enclose the edge of the press bed or head. When two of said strips are used, one on the head and one on the 50 material, particularly of sheet metal such as copper, brass, zinc or tin, or of rust-proof or bed, they come together at the edges of the head and bed, when the head is lowered, thereby pre venting the escape of steam between the head stainless steel, etc. These strips can be readily formed or shaped by drawing or stamping opera tions.
