Loyal Manchester Lodge
Now doesn't the talk of Gutenberg and old wood type get people going! I give a quick talk and demonstration of where movable type came from and then show how to select the letters for the word and place them in a special way. 7 years for a full apprenticeship, I will show in the 7 minute version! Roll out the water based ink on the diagonal, lay on the paper, place on the bed of the 180 year old Imperial Press, swing down the tympan and frisket, turn the handle, pull the lever, open, peel back the print, WOW!
