Ludlow composing sticks


Here are more images showing composition sticks, type cast slugs, matrices, and press views showing the workings of the R.Hoe & Co. handpress, rods and springs, toggle, bar and platen. The three composings ticks are a standard hand setting stick, a straight Ludlow roman stick and a centering stick. Views of the centering stick with matrices show casting side and top of Eusebius open 36 point brass mats. More to come.
