1. Pots

Recall that in Linotype terminology the "pot" is the entire assembly, consisting of the "pot jacket" (the outside casting which is visible), the "crucible" (where the melting happens), and other parts. This is in distinction to, for example, Ludlow terminology (where the whole thing is called the "crucible").
