Although this adaptor is designed for casting typefounder matrices on the Monotype supercaster, I still announce it here.

The smaller matrices sizes 6-14 point we hope to cast them with the super caster composition head, and the smaller sizes moulds.

In due time this will be tested in the BookArtMuseum in Lodz Poland.

The head will need to be raised a little, some 20 mm to accomodate the extra height under the head. We will need some longer screws for this.

Another problem needs to be solved too: this head needs a very precise positioning...
