That is a range of twenty-four (24) different pica lengths in two different thicknesses. There are a total of 480 pieces and a total of twenty-fire pounds of type metal. All of these leads and slugs were cut on a Hamond Glider letterpress printer's saw so they have all been cut exactly to size and both ends have a mirror finish. Not the rough looking cut you get on a hand slug cutter.Each size is individually wrapped and identified with correct pica length on wrapper. This is a very good way to maximize your dollar spent for letterpress leads and slugs. Should you already have a letterpress Lead & Slug cabinet all the better to fill it. Should you acquire one later this would give you a head start of filling it up. This is a perfect set-up for new letterpress printers needing a generous supply of leads an slugs in a wide range of sizes. Compare and you'll agree this is the best bang for your buck. Not a skimpy collection of leads & slugs. Enough material to set more than a line or two.
You'll have the luxury of not having to promptly disassemble a form because you don't have enough material left to start a new form. Please note: This offering is for leads and slugs as described in this listing. The 9 x 13 galley shown in photos is not included. The leads and slugs offered are previously used but are in good condition and not damaged or bent on any way.
