Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Dave Hughes

A look around a print shop on board a US Navy WW2 ship at "Battleship Cove" America's fleet museum.

There's an Intertype, a Craftsman guillotine and a jobbing press with a Kluge feeder.

I don't imagine there will be many of these still existing.

If you are interested in nautical print shops here's a couple of articles on the forum you may find interesting:
