πίσω από λάστιχα, τροχούς βαλμένος σταθερά μέσα σε πρέσα

    I somehow cannot understand these two lines from the song "Κι εσύ τρελή με τυραννάς" (sung by Mariza Koch):

    Δες με, πίσω από λάστιχα, τροχούς
    βαλμένος σταθερά μέσα σε πρέσα


    Well, I do understand "Δες με", but have a problem with the rest.

    Look at me, (being) behind tyres, wheels
    set constantly at the tyre-press

    *I think πρέσα refers to this machine.

    Thank you! So, the man in the song works in a tyre factory?

    I imagine that his workplace looks somehow like this.
    In Greek we call it «βουλκανιζατέρ» (vulkanizat'er).

    Thank you very much! I would not have understood it myself.
