Saturday Night Pi(e)

Running mats into new-to-me Alumilite Magazines. This one appears to be warped/bent. Dang. These are probably some of the cleanest matrices I have in the shop. Kills me to have pied them. Hopefully didn't do too much damage. Happy Saturday Night Pi!

Miter practice

I've been practicing mitering Linotype border using the Hammond glider saw. I almost took out a window here at Stumptown Printers when the miter vise clamp wasn't tight enough and a slug got away from me. Won't make that mistake again.

Proofing 10^440

Looking pretty clean so far. This type form will be used for a limited edition keepsake broadside celebrating 11 years of the Stumptown Printers' Arigato Pak.

Russian Made Linotype in Action

This is a great little video of a Russian made (?) line casting machine. Thanks to Bill Spurling for passing on the link. Check out the safety guard that flips into place over the mold and vise before casting.
