Oh, what a beautiful machine, and operator too! He seems to be very creative with different instruments.The wooden parts are CNC-milled, I don't know how many of them are there, but quite a lot; the way the thing is built reminds me of a Linotype indeed.

Wow! What an incredible machine.

I've heard that some people could play a tune on a linecaster by selecting certain characters. The sound was made as they dropped from the distributor bar back into the magazine. Never seen a video of it though. Anyone fancy making one?
