Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

I am restoring a Model 48 Linotype and the Stratford Historical Village here in New Zealand.

The Rats have had a good feed of the wiring and I wonder if someone has details of it.

This 48 has a fundudor pot and a saw.


I'm not sure if we are talking about the same pot control. Here is a diagram for the Funditrol made by Funditor for the C4 Intertype
we are working on. This pamphlet is talking about the mouthpiece, but the whole pot circuit is illustrated. The heating elements may differ. On this machine's pot control the circuit diagram is printed on the back inside of the control box. Hope this some help.
