Taupo Intermediate

 Inked up type set in a galley, kept in rows using furniture and tightened with 2 cast iron quoins (wedges)   Inking carefully with diagonal strokes across the wood type.
Selecting wood letters from the tray. In this font I have3  trays the same size with both upper and lower case.
                                                These are the names for all my pets.
 Ayshia, Ellie, Bree and Rox.
 Pumping the handle on the yellowXpress 5000 hydraulic press.
 Someone has a birthday coming up!
 Prints hanging on the line to dry.
By squeezing the wood type in from the ends, provides some tension and the letters print evenly.
