PRINTERS' FURNITURE AND TOOLS



REVERSIBLE UNIT CABINETS

Unquestionably one
of the greatest improv-
ments in Printers' Cab-
inet construction during
recent years has been
the addition of the Unit
System a system which
has grown and expanded
from a small beginning
until now it is found in
all lilies of trade where
system has made any
material progress.
There are many points
of superiority in a Unit
System over any other
construction. It allows
of expansion with a
small outlay. A single
Unit will often provide
the additional room re-
quired, and the expense
involved in the purchase
of a complete new Cab-
inet is avoided. At the
same time the Cabinet
will always be complete
and the general balance
of the office equipment
will be maintained.

Heretofore the Unit
System, so far as print-
ing office furniture is
concerned, has not been
attempted beyond regu-
lar type Cabinet con-
struction. We now offer
a line of Units which
allows almost unlimited

possibilities in the way of different combinations, including Type Case Units of various patterns, Galley
Units, Letter-board Units, and Sort Drawer Units. This allows the furniture in any printing office,
equipped with these new Reversible Units to be kept at an even balance. If new fonts of type are added,
a Unit containing a few type Cases can be ordered.

The fact should not be lost sight of that reversible Units have greater capacity than other type Cabinets,
owing to the increased depth from front to back, which is necessary on account of the 24-inch depth being
required for Galley Cabinets, so as to accommodate full length standard 24-inch galleys. This increases the
capacity of the type Cases and allows shallower Cases to be used without reducing the standard capacity
of a type Case. It allows more Cases to be placed in a standard height of 43 inches for type setting purposes.
It condenses a large amount of material into a small space and one Reversible Unit Cabinet will often take
care of all of the material that would require two Cabinets of ordinary construction to hold.

Reversible Unit Cabinet Combination No. 4 is made by combining 2 Units No. 22, each containing seven
Letter Boards. 1 Unit No. 10, containing 12 large California Job Cases, standard depth. 1 Unit No. 11, con-
taining 15 large California Job Cases J inch deep inside the rail. 2 No. 1 Banks, 2 Cap pieces and 2 Base
pieces, 2 pairs of Tilting Brackets and 2 pairs of News Cases on Brackets.

pounds of type.




Reversible Unit No. 10

Each Unit of this pattern is fitted with 12 of the large
California Job Cases of standard depth. Size of these

and figure fonts without crowding. No other type case
has a like capacity.

The top is covered with plate glass, substituting the old ink slab.
Beneath the glass are receptacles for inks, oil cans, tympan paper, etc.
Beneath this is a tool drawer 3J inches deep. Beneath the tool drawer
is a V-shaped opening into which spoiled sheets and anything else of a
waste-basket nature may be thrown, falling into a deep drawer below,
that pulls from the rear side of the cabinet for emptying. Below this
drawer is a compartment for old rags.

This rag compartment is lined with metal throughout to effectually
obviate all danger should spontaneous combustion take place. This
compartment is accessible from both sides of the Cabinet by means of
trap doors secured at the bottom with spring hinges.

The Cabinet is mounted on castors and can be pushed about the
press room as required.

INDEXED ELECTROTYPE CABINETS

"Where is that cut?" is a question asked a
hundred thousand times every year, and it is a
question often hard to answer. The use of these
Indexed Electrotype Cabinets absolutely pre-
vents any cut from being lost or mislaid. The
cabinet is so arranged that each cut or electro-
type has a place specially partitioned off for its
accommodation.

To find a cut, a glance of the Index Book will
show the exact location, giving the number of
the Drawer in which it is located, also the section
of the Drawer and the division of the section, as
shown in the illustration. No other cut is looked
at or disturbed and no time is lost.

When an original cut is withdrawn from the
Cabinet for the purpose of having electrotypes
cast from it, a slip of paper can be deposited,
giving the date of its withdrawal and a record of
where it was sent, thus maintaining a constant
control and certain knowledge of the location of
each cut.

Drawers are slotted on the inside, at inter-
vals of three-eights of an inch. The full length
divisions which run from front to back are also
slotted at intervals of three-eights of an inch on
both sides. The smaller cross divisions are placed
in position, separating each cut and making a
distinct compartment to fit each cut.

These Cabinets are made with Steel Runs,
which allow the Drawers to be placed compactly
in the Cabinet and these Steel Runs afford a
saving in space by accommodating 25 per cent
more Drawers than would be possible if Wood
Runs were used. Each Drawer is also fitted with
a metal Number Plate, and the Index Book ac-
companies each Cabinet without extra charge.
All Drawers placed in these Cabinets are of the
"New Departure" pattern, which is now so well
and favorably known. The Cabinets are made of
ash, finished in antique oak, and we can confi-
dently assert that this Cabinet will give thorough satisfaction and soon pay for itself in time saved. They
are constructed in three sizes like regular type Cabinets. The two-third size Drawer is 15|x20i inside;
the .three-quarter Drawer is 15 x24f inside; the full-size Drawer is 15 x 3(H inside. All Drawers have exten-
sion side rails at the back, enabling a Drawer to be fully
drawn and making the cuts in the back readily access-
ible. The prices given are for the Cabinets, fully
equipped, ready for use.

This Cut Shows a Drawer

as it appears when divided off and filled
with cuts or electrotypes. See part of in-
dex showing manner of indexing four of
the cuts in the Drawer. Note that every
cut is in a distinct compartment, and that
the dimensions are arranged in both direc-
tions to fit the various sizes of cuts.

The Electrotype Cabinet Index Book

We give below an illustration of pages from the Index Book. This book is 7J x 81 inches, and contains
130 pages. There are 100 pages ruled as below and with an alphabetical margin. The book is neatly
printed and ruled and bound in a canvas cover. A comparison of the index given below with the cut of the
filled Drawer will show the simplicity of the arrangement. Find the four original wood cuts in drawer 12.

BOOKBINDERS' CABINETS

Made with bronzed pulls on each Case, and highly finished. The
Cases are made in exactly the same style as printers' Cases, with three-
ply bottoms, and are the same size and proportioned like one-half of the
regular Cap Case. These Cabinets may be put on or under a bench. "A
place for everything and everything in its place" is a rule bookbinders
should live up to, and these Cabinets will enable them to do so.

PRINTERS' FURNITURE AND TOOLS




Eight-Drawer Linotype Matrix Cabinet

Six metal slugs are furnished with
each Drawer in all these Cabinets.
These will be found very useful hold-
ing up the ends of lines of matrices and
also for separating special characters
not always required. These slugs are
made the same shape and size of a,
matrix and i inch wide.



MATRIX CABINETS

Provides a convenient and safe receptacle for the storage of
the valuable matrices, space bands and tools which accompany
every Linotype outfit. The construction is based on a careful
study of the requirements and after the suggestions of practical
Linotype experts. No Linotype outfit is complete without one.
This is the only practical Cabinet ever made for holding the
matrices and other small tools which accompany a Linotype
machine. They are firmly and substantially constructed of
hardwood, nicely finished. The roll curtain front will effectually
exclude the dust, and being provided with a first-class lock in-
sures the contents of the Drawers from being tampered with.

Each Drawer is 14i x 15 inches inside, having ten grooves
upon which the matrices are placed edgewise as illustrated be-
low. The capacity of each Drawer is 142 running inches of
matrices set edgewise. These Drawers are set in the Cabinet
on an incline. This position of the Drawers prevents the ma-
trices from falling down or becoming disarranged when the
grooves are not full. The illustration shows the matrices in
place, the unfilled lines being held by a metal slug. In the lower
part is a Drawer 4i inches deep inside, fitted with a pin lock.
This Drawer cannot be opened until the curtain is raised. It
will accommodate all the small tools which go with the Linotype
machine.
