Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


Hello all.
 I / my museum has a monotype caster that I have been cleaning up and restoring the past year. With lots of help knowledge from Richard Hopkins. Is there anyone who lives closer to Bethlehem, PA. USA who may come and help get this running? We are in need of new electric elements for the melt pot, but I have a gas pot that works for now. In about 2-3 years this will be in our museum, working of coarse. But for now it is in our climate controlled warehouse. The keyboard is still with paper ribbon. Really need help with identifying buttons keys and the under button units. We have 3 sets of buttons and of the keyrods, and stop bars.

Thank you all.
Frank Sattler
