Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


Saw the picture of the Comet 300 with the TTS Unit hanging on the keyboard. Also the TTS perf.

It's interesting to view what's under the Covers  of this equipment. See Contents page on the
following site:  >>> move to the right side of first page and click CONTENTS –
Linotype, Intertype Teletype and more . . .

Also have interesting items about the famous
ACE  "Automatically Controlled Elektron" machines of the middle 1960's era. . .
A sophisticated looking hot metal machine laced with 100+ leaf, cherry and micro switches. . .
timers, water cooler, electric drive clutch w/brake; also driving gear & distributor clutch control,
auto hydraulic molds selection w/ knife block plus ejector settings,
and a slew of blinking lights.

I added additional comments and detail to most of the graphics to define specific items more clearly.

Have a good read,

Dave Hughes

I took a look at the ACE stuff on your site madisonpete and it is so unlike any hot metal machine I ever came across.

Fascinating stuff!!!
